Product Details

The name for this blended Scotch comes from the tennis elbow-like repetitive motion injury that “malt men” develop from turning over the barley with shovels. It’s a combination of three Speyside single malts from Glenfiddich, Balvenie and Kininvie, aged in ex-Bourbon barrels overseen by the master distiller, and married from a selection of twenty-seven different casks. The nose has notes of zesty orange, mellow vanilla, honey and spiced oak, while the palate shows mellow vanilla, hints of spice and a super smooth finish. Nice neat, on the rocks or in cocktails, it earned a Gold medal at the 2011 International Wine & Spirits Competition.

About the Producer
