What they say:

Inchmurrin Whisky is distilled in the unique stills that give the whisky light, floral and grassy notes. The whisky is aged in three types of cask bourbon, refill and re-charred casks for a period of 12 years. These whiskies are then vatted together in a balance only known to our master distiller William White.
