K&L exclusive bottling consisting of 2 casks. But it's unclear (apparently even to K&L) whether those casks were vatted together, or bottled individually. The bottles themselves state no batch or barrel numbers.
Originally intended to be a 17-year-old, by the time all the paperwork had cleared and the bottling process was begun, the whiskey qualified as an 18-year.
Identical in color to the standard 17-year, this has a delicious candy-bourbon nose. On the palate it's tasty stuff, somewhat honey-nutty and quite caramel-y, slightly richer than the 17 year, and though it's a little older I think it's a tad sweeter. Overall there's very little difference from the 17-year, but I'd prefer this one, and it's cheaper too. Plus I get to feel good supporting K&L's new habit of purchasing their own casks -- which, of course, must be made to continue! B/B+
