Equinox is our first Port cask release.
The ex-Port fill cask was resized to a 164L (over-sized) quarter cask by Speyside Cooperage and was filled with our new make spirit on the Vernal Equinox in 2020 (20th March). Disgorging took place on the Autumnal Equinox in 2023 (23 September). These dates are significant in so much as they reflect the scarce nature of this whisky: we only fill a few casks a year and it will always be around an Equinox.
As we get a greater surface area compared to the volume of liquid in smaller casks, the influence from the wood is accelerated . So despite being in wood for just 3 and half years, the flavour profile and complexity is insane for its age. As such we have cut to 43.4% so as not to overpower the senses, and a small splash of water will really help to draw out the myriad of flavours and aromas.
We really hope you enjoy drinking this rare elixir as much as we enjoyed making it.
