    Cocoa Tobacco Brown Sugar Dried Fruit Cinnamon Chocolate Fruity Plum Oak
    Part of the First Editions Authors' Series of single cask releases from independent bottler Hunter Laing & co, this 28 year old Speyside single malt was distilled in November 1988 and matured in sherry butt HL14253. Bottled in October 2017 at a natural cask strength of 54.1% abv, only 244 bottles have been produced, each one presented in a handsome leather case emblazoned with gold lettering.

    A rich amber coloured whisky, this long-aged Speysider has spent its life in a second-fill European oak sherry butt and has notes of intense chocolate, dried fruits – plums, dates – and tobacco on the nose. Powerful on the palate with macerated fruits, brown sugar, cocoa powder and a touch of cinnamon leading onto a long, lingering finish at which point the oak tannins begin to reveal themselves.

    Frederick Douglass (1818-1895) was an African-American writer, orator, abolitionist and statesman. A former slave in Maryland, Douglass went on to become a national leader in the abolitionist movement, gaining acclaim for his anti-slavery writings including The Heroic slave, My Bondage and My Freedom and A Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave.
