The Gauldrons, inspired by the eponymous dark sandy coves on Campbeltown’s west shores, literally means “bay of storms”. It was here that King Robert the Bruce, having been defeated by his enemies, was inspired whilst watching a spider building its web with great patience but great difficulty, to try, try and try again. The spider has become synonymous with The Gauldrons’ core expression, featuring again in this new limited edition.
This release is a marriage of the finest Single Cask Single Malts only from the Campbeltown region, and having enjoyed a lengthy finishing period in Spanish Sherry Casks contains “perfect balance, with an explosion of rich, dark fruits and spice alongside the salty and maritime notes Campbeltown is famed for.”
Nose: Maritime with sea air, a touch of manuka honey and macerated fruits.
Palate: An explosion of rich, dark fruits leading to warm spices - cinnamon and cloves.
Finish: A distinctly spicy finish with Sherried sweetness, stone fruits, and more honey.
