Presentation Box:
The presentation box for the 2023 vintage release has taken inspiration from the original cardboard box created for the first vintage back in 1984. The original box ran until 1990. They were hard cardboard boxes lined with a beautiful gold fabric. The 2023 goes back to a presentation that is a more sustainable offering.

The opening presents an intricate medley of fruits including nectarines, ripe melon, green apple, and apricot. There's a solid foundation of pot still spices, showcasing notes of freshly peeled ginger and crushed peppercorns, that work in tandem with the aged grain's, perfumed notes of dried flowers and delectable golden syrup. The oak continues to reveal itself, adding notes of vanilla, combined with a honeycomb sweetness and freshly roasted coffee beans.

Instantly luscious with succulent fruits and distinctive creaminess together with a touch of herbal quality reminiscent of camomile tea. The pot still spices add further depth and intrigue as they intermingle with the floral grain qualities. The charred oak's influence continues to build providing additional complexity as the wood-derived spices complement the persistent fruit flavours of candied orange and dried apricot.

The fruits and pot still spices build to a crescendo before easing away, leaving the final notes to hints oak tannins and antique grain whiskey.
