The Smoky Twelve is the perfect marriage of fruit,malt, oak and rich layers of smoke. Crafted from a combination of unpeated and peated spirit and three cask matured for at least twelve years in bourbon barrels, sherry casks, and Marsala wine casks. The whisky from each cask is then expertly married together to create a smooth, creamy single malt, multilayered with flavours of ripened fruit, aromatic smoky sweetness and warming oak spice.
The appearance is burnished gold, the nose is smoked vanilla, charred orange and toasted almonds. The palate is dark chocolate, fruit peel, brown sugar and smoked oak, lingering into a cocoa and orange smoked finish.
"Longer maturation brings more aromatic layers to our distinctive smoky style. For me it's baked orange in a wonderful cake, fired over an open fire, with dark chocolate flavour." - Rachel Barrie - Master Distiller
