One of the biggest, richest, sweetest releases of our beloved Sherry Cask Malt in years: this edition is based on a secret recipe of single malts from several distilleries, all married and aged in fresh Oloroso sherry casks. The interplay between the different distillery styles allows it to reach unprecedented complexity, with a flavour profile that encapsulates subtle hints of earthiness, leather, liquorice and beeswax on a solid backbone of raisins, dried apricots, candied orange rinds, butter biscuits, marzipan and almonds. It’s a honeyed and fruity malt whisky, with the juicy and rich note so typical of maturation in sherry casks but without a hint of winey sharpness. What is even more surprising, with a whisky of such complexity and richness, is how it remains so hugely drinkable, easy and light-spirited: a testament to the elegance of the art of blending.
