Freshly emptied barrels which were filled for around 25 years.
Whiskeys from the highlands and their barrels are normally mild and have a flavor of honey and Erica. They bring fruity and spicy flavor with them like Glenturret, Blair Athol and Dalwhinnie.
On the other hand the Whiskeys near Aberdeen are light sweet and malty. In the south of Aberdeen you can find mostly some with chocolate and tropical fruit flavor like Glen Garioch and Royal Lochnagar.
In the northern Highlands the Whiskeys tastes salty because many distilleries are located by the sea. For example Pulteney, Clynelish, Balblair and Glenmorangie.

Used wooden barrels: Notches in the wood or, in certain circumstances, an uneven base, do not constitute a quality defect, but stem from the idiosyncrasies of the production method and the prior use of the barrels. The usage of the barrel will not be affected by those! The barrels are very carefully checked by us at the exit control against sensor and technical errors. We assume no liability for cracks or splits that occur during maturation. A possible and a reasonable repair is not under guarantee.
