A special anniversary bottling from Signatory Vintage, celebrating the 10th birthday of The Whisky Exchange Whisky show. When we were looking for some special birthday bottles, this was first on our list – a big sherry cask from Glenlivet. We love this style and this continues a run of great collaborative bottlings between us and Signatory. It's all about the fruit, with loads of sticky cherries and raisins at its dark, sherried heart. One for sherry heads.Tasting Notes (1)

Tasting notes by Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange
Fresh and glacé cherries to start, with toasted fruit loaf and spiced butter to follow. There's a touch of pine in the middle, surrounded by gummi sweets: sweet and sour cherries and a touch of the tropical. Fragrant oak follows. Much more restrained than I expected it to be...
The shackles are off now – restraint has been thrown to the wind. Intense and densely packed: raisins, sultanas and prunes compressed to a black hole of bittersweet dried fruit. More friendly fruit appears, with the cherries from the nose joined by dried apple chunks and a basket of dehydrated berries. Black liquorice sits underneath, and dark chocolate sauce flows through the gaps.
Loads of spice: cinnamon, nutmeg and anise. They fade to reveal sticky dates and prunes.
From the nose I thought this might be a more gentle dram than its ABV suggests, but the palate is intense and packed full of dark sherry flavour. However, it's impressively well balanced, with lighter notes ensuring it never becomes too much.

Very good whisky. Heavily sherried. Bold. Full. Excellent cask selection. Definitely not there with the 10yo released earlier this year but a terrific dram nonetheless.
Exceptionally rich and well balanced. The sherry cask really shines through. An ultimate fall weather drinker!
