    Bottler’s notes:    The nose is a sensuous susurration of Spain – we identified wine-soaked floorboards in a bodega and cigars being handed out in the bullring after roses were tossed on the sand; toffee apples, sarsaparilla, marzipan in dark chocolate and tawny port. The rich palate bestowed chocolate-coated dark cherries, cinnamon buns, chocolate oranges and cigar butts dipped in pomegranate molasses – this was a star! A drop of water brought out nuttiness and spice on the nose, tamed the tannins and sweetened the palate. At ten years of age, we combined selected casks from this distillery. We then returned the single malt into a variety of casks to develop further. This is one of those casks.
