The Gladstone Axe American Oak Smooth and Rich Blended Scotch
Every batch of Gladstone Axe American Oak is made from 100% malted barley and aged in American oak barrels that were previously used for bourbon production. Aging our scotch whisky in ex-bourbon barrels imparts mellow sweet notes to the blend of malt whiskies that compose this one-of-a-kind scotch. Gladstone Axe American Oak is made from a selection of malt whiskies from 14 different Highland and Islay malt distilleries.
“Mid-amber colour, nose drying overall. The top notes are of Malt Loaf with Sultanas and other Dried Fruits, spiced with Nutmeg and Allspice; a suggestion of Apple Dumpling or Spiced Apple Pie. Unusually Smooth, Mouth-filling texture and a well balanced taste, with a return of the Apple Pie, now Tarte Tatin.” - Charles Maclean
