Tweeddale about this expression
“An indulgent small batch, limited edition blend drawn from nine single casks; an aged single grain whisky and eight individually selected aged single malt whiskies, with a high malt content (50% grain, 50% malt). In keeping with the original blend it has not been chill filtered and has been bottled at 46% alcohol by volume. This ensures a balanced, full bodied and full flavored whisky with pronounced sweet, sherry notes.”
