Matured in first fill Bourbon barrels, bottled at 56% and not chill-filtered this whisky displays an initial burst of chilli spice and is mouth warming with hints of liquorice and delicate peat.

100° Proof is an archaic term once used by the British Navy, the sailors who were paid part in rum and whisky were suspicious their pay may been watered down – and so devised a method to tell them of any meddling. By adding a little whisky to their gunpowder, a mixture that still flashed proved that their pay was 56% alcohol, or above – if there wasn’t a flash, their pay might have been watered down. That’s a poor way to have your pay cut, let alone your whisky.
