The Perfect Measure

Sherried Malts Gift Set

One of the most important factors when making whisky is the type of cask used to mature the spirit. Casks that have previously held sherry are especially prized in Scotland, imparting rich and fruity notes to the whisky stored in them. This set explores the range of flavour that sherry casks can create when used to mature whisky. This gift set contains whiskies from Macallan, Edradour, Dalmore, Glenfarclas and Lagavulin.
