    About The Whisky

    A long aged, sherry-focused blended malt, aged for 45 years. The whisky was distilled way back in 1973 and then vatted together into a blended malt in the years since. It was then reracked into sherry casks for a final maturation, before bottling in 2019. The result is a rich and complex whisky with layers of spice, sherry cask fruit and elegant, old oak.

    Tasting Notes

    • Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange

      • Nose

        Brown sugar and light fruitcake lead: Mr Kipling's Country Slices with a side-order of brown bread and butter. Darker, savoury notes slowly build, with char and singed raisins balanced by rich earthiness and old-Cognac rancio. Fruit sits at the core: maraschino cherries, plump raisins, baked apples, wine-poached pears and a hint of dried mango.

      • Palate

        Venerable but fresh – old oak is poised against sweet baked apples; sultanas balance bitter char. Soft spice builds across the palate: brown sugar and nutmeg lead to the fruit from the nose. The fruitcake is back and remains light, sprinkled with crunchy crystals of sugar. Thick damp oak and fragrant riverbank earthiness provide a backbone.

      • Finish

        Brown sugar lingers, accompanied by char and a parade of fruit: apples, sultanas and, finally, sticky raisins.
