Our entry level Peated Sherry Cask
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 the broken down version of our sensational Cask Strength Peated Sherry. At 45%, still very much a powerful and commanding spirit; the same dried fruits and white pepper climb straight out of your glass, just a little more subtle. The peat is soft and velevty, just a little laid back but you know it’s there. After a gentle swirl the sweet toffee and Christmas cake notes are now present but they have bought a cheeky bit of clove to the party. 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 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.
