Sherry casks are considered a luxury in Whisky making. These expensive barrels imbue a spirit with distinctive notes of deep fruit, citrus and nuts. Our Classic Sherry Cask Malt is blended from the best Sherry butts to deliver a balanced expression of this uniquely engaging style.
Dry nose-feel is attractively sherried with some Seville orange and nuttiness, dates, raisins and even a touch of rancio. Same goes for the palate; initially spicy before settling into a superb blend – a lovely definition of dried fruits (dates, prunes and raisins), especially towards the finish. Follows with cinnamon and pepper warmth, zesty freshness, hints of bitter dark chocolate and Christmas cake through the aftertaste.
