We believe that there is a symbiotic relationship between all Society spirits. This is realised through the sharing of casks to develop complex flavours and aromas. In the creation of this small batch single malt, we made use of some armagnac barrels fashioned from Gascon black oak (Society no’s A6.1 and A7.1) to further develop the fruity flavours of the whisky and add a French oak counterpoint to the American oak influence of first fill bourbon barrels. The result is an estery, sweet and spicy concoction, with perfumed notes and a silky texture. Hugely hospitable aromas embraced oaky and toasty notes before a wave of sweetness delivered white chocolate on sponge cake. The soft fruits of apricots, banana and ripe pears mingled with heartwarming spice as ginger cake and pink peppercorns arrived. On the palate we found crumbled walnuts, hazelnuts and chocolate-covered Brazil nuts along with croissants, apple strudel and pain au chocolat. With water came an aromatic deluge of fragrant pears, orange blossom and apple orchards framed by chamomile tea and madeira cake. Milk chocolate-covered gingerbread fused with cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice while caramel slowly filtered into black tea on the finish.
