A rich, medium-bodied blended malt Scotch whisky, OAK CROSS combines vanilla characters from American oak and spicy, clove-like characters from French oak.
We begin by sourcing whiskies from three single malt distilleries; one for its ethereal fruity character, one for its enchanting perfume and one that lends a complex and substantial structure to the blend.
All are aged in American oak casks before we place a portion into innovative hybrid casks featuring heavily toasted new French oak heads. These give the whisky an added richness and spice-like complexity.
By carefully blending back the French oak-aged whisky with its American oak-aged forebear, we are able to create a refined, rich, but well-mannered malt whisky, with fruity aspects that will remind you of baked apple or pears, complemented by a rich, toasty oak character.
The compelling combination of whiskies which make Oak Cross so special can unfortunately no longer be sourced. Starting in the USA this year, it will be discontinued from all markets by the end of 2021.
