This cask was matured full-term in a Sandeman cream sherry butt and remains the finest expression from this distillery we have tried. Hugely impressive stuff, with complex fruitcake, leather and cognac-esque rancio characters, with a delicious sherried sweetness.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting notes by Whiskyfun (Serge Valentin)

    Nose: bags of prunes, wheelbarrows of sultanas and truckloads of plum and strawberry jams. Then a superb development on cigars, ham, cedar wood and Seville oranges. Ultra-classic, mega-nice.

    With water: rocks and leather, metal polish and old rancio. Brilliant.

    Mouth (neat): yes, a perfect sherry monster, akin to the best Macallans, Glendronachs or Glenfarclas. Chocolate, coffee, prunes, raisins, orange liqueur, pepper… And not the tiniest flaw. Probably from a genuine sherry butt.

    With water: the most exquisite chocolate filled with the most precious liqueurs.

    Finish: very long, chocolaty, fruity, jammy.

    Comments: again, ultra-classic old sherry ‘monster’ (not monstrous at all actually). Scotland’s best cognac! The great late Matt Forrest sure knew how to select a cask of whisky! SGP:651 - 92 points.

  • Tasting Notes by Tim F

    A frankly incredible nose, constantly evolving in the glass and very reminiscent of a long-aged cognac, with leathery rancio elements, raisins, fruitcake, Demerara and sweet oranges alongside the expected rich sherry notes. 

    On the palate the oak is big, but beautifully balanced with the flavours from the nose.  This cask was matured full-term in a Sandeman cream sherry butt and remains the finest expression from this distillery we have tried.
