Money raised from the sale of this Private Edition will be donated to Hearts + Balls Charity. Hearts + Balls was conceived in 1999 when a player from the Lismore Rugby Club in Edinburgh suffered a serious spinal injury that left him paralysed. Having run a highly successful appeal, Lismore decided to widen its support to cover other players impacted by serious injury or illness. Thus, Hearts + Balls came into being with the aim of ‘helping rugby help its own’.
Hearts + Balls offer assistance, both immediate and long-term, to those who have been impacted by catastrophic injury.
This can take the form of property conversion, equipment, legal costs, counselling, the list is only an indication of the kind of assistance Hearts + Balls can provide; every injury is different as are the needs of every injured player. For more information on the charity and the work they do please visit their website: www.heartsandballs.org.uk.

Sherried oak, butter toffee and delicate smoke
Beautifully complex, Heather infused honey and warm spice combine with a hint of oak smoke
Mellow and long. One to be savoured and never forgotten.
Glen Moray Mastery
The bourbon cask matured Glen Moray from the 1970’s adds complexity and vintage oak character, with port finished whisky from the 1980’s bringer a sweeter character and spice. In addition to these Madeira from the 1990’s and 2000’s give Mastery a consistent backbone of flavour, with vanilla and toffee aromas sitting alongside darker coffee and chocolate notes. Finally, sherry casks from the 1990’s round of the complexity, adding a rich body and mouthfeel.
An aroma explosion of sugar crusted rhubarb crumble, chocolate raisins and oak smoked toasted almonds.
A cocktail of roasted and toasted coffee beans, melted dark chocolate and sweet raisins infused with fortified wine. Rich, complex and completely well balanced.
Long and satisfying. Spice and oak come to the fore. One to savour and reflect on.
