Hand-picked from our cask stocks, our first 2017 release reflects the scope and variety of our maturing single cask whisky, from the fruity and oily “Spiced Apple Strudel” to the pair of Bunnahabhain casks “The Ship's Decanter” and “Scallop Divers Dram” which really demonstrate how diverse single cask whisky can be.”
