This is the much anticipated 2010 Winter Release from Daftmill Distillery, which is owned and operated by the Cuthbert family. The barley variety Publican was grown in the 43 acre field and was harvested on the 28th and 29th August 2009. It was then dried and stored on the farm to be malted in Alloa during the summer of 2010. The whisky that went into this bottling came from twenty five first fill ex Bourbon barrels, which were filled in November and December 2010. It was then stored in Daftmill's dunnage warehouse until bottling at 46% abv in 2023. The patience and dedication to their craft has garnered the distillery hordes of dedicated fans, including collectors and connoisseurs.
Nose: Apple, cereal, honeydew, almonds and marzipan.
