We don’t get a chance to pick too many Wathen’s single barrels but when we do, they’re always exceptional and this is par for the course. A rare barrel-proof bottling from the Medley family that is below 60% abv, this is nuanced with notes of caramel, some sweet red fruit, a slightly leathery backbone and a lengthy whiff of vanilla. The robust palate is replete with brown sugar, dates, bold oak spice and wisps of tropical fruit and bright floral tones. It’s a beautifully complex and layered whiskey. Get your bottles of this now, it’s an instant classic and won’t last long!
