A wonderful blend from Thompson Bros at Dornoch distillery achieved in batchs of less than 800btls at a time by utilising an almost solera setup. Thompson Bros work with a selection of North Highland, Islay and Speyside Single Malts to create a vatted malt which is bright and fresh and has a great slightly waxy mouthfeel and gentle smokey balance.
