Jacoulot 13 Year Old Single Malt HIghland Whisky....$124.99
Long ago, Jacoulot distiller Philippe Vancon realized an affinity exists between Scotch Whisky and Brandy from Burgundy (i.e. the importance of source and the maturation climate). This understanding birthed a project to marry Scotch Whisky and Brandy from Burgundy - a single malt Scotch Whisky (non-peated) from Tullibardine in the Scottish Highlands. (The distillery started as a brewery in the 15th Century due to its revered water source from the Ochil Hills, which takes 15 years to reach the final resting point.) The whisky spends 10 years maturing in a selection of ex-Bourbon casks chosen by Jacoulot, then an additional 3 years finishing in the Jacoulot French oak barrels, previously used to aged their signature Marc de Bourgogne.
Borne from this exploration of Scotch Whisky, this single malt from Tullibardine in the Scottish Highlands spends ten years maturing in a selection of ex-Bourbon casks chosen by Jacoulot, followed by an additional three years finishing in Jacoulot’s French oak barrels, previously used to age their signature Marc de Bourgogne.
