Crafty got his hands on his first super-cask from master cooper Andrew Young and then filled it with that good good Riverbourne new make. 2 years and 6 months later and we get the Blue Zero.
Strong candied fruit flavors and a generous char. This is a unique whiskey that is grounded in a place and a time and is dedicated to the people that helped make it possible.
It's like eating a jar of grandma's special marmalade toffee apple preserve by a campfire while a burly man hugs you and tells you that everything is going to be ok. His beard is scratchy and his fleece jumper smells like ash but you feel so safe and warm.
