SAME AS THE 45% VERSION, ONLY 17.2% BETTER
A lightly peated Ex Sherry cask from our unique Slosh Cask program, a marriage of three casks, all 225 litre in size however, only filled with filled with 122 litres` of medium peated new make spirit. Due to the half fill and the sloshing process the spirit is exposed to twice the barrel char, this will pull a more of the peat out of the spirit than traditional full cask maturing. But we like it…
This is one of our favourite whiskies to date. At 62.2% it is a BIG, powerful and commanding spirit; dried fruits and white pepper climb straight out of your glass. The peat is subtle and a little laid back, but you know it’s there. After a minute of rest and a gentle swirl the sweet toffee and Christmas cake notes are now present. The first sip is a little misleading as that laid-back peat is not obvious immediately; but then around the mid pallet the soft smoke starts to roll in. Not as dry as some Sherries can be, a medium to long finish with a wonderful mouth fill and some enticing earthy oak richness right on the end.
A drop or two of water and you will have the pleasure of enjoying this Whisky across multiple levels.
