Our Sherry Cask expression begins with our new make spirit which is already incredibly smooth and fruity thanks to the pair of yeasts we use, the long 90-hour fermentation and the tight heart cut on the spirit still. We dilute it to 63.5% ABV before filling a combination of casks seasoned with Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez for full term maturation.
This is the only whisky in our Cask Expressions Range which has been blended across cask types, though all of them are sherry casks. Over the years we’ve aged our whisky in a variety of casks made from different woods (both Spanish and American oak), in different sizes (250-litre Hogsheads and 500-litre Butts) and seasoned with different wines (dry Oloroso and sweet Pedro Ximénez). Every year we create a blend from these various cask types with the aim of delivering the ultimate sherried whisky experience. Each batch will be unique, but will always be 100% matured in sherry casks.
Bottled non-chill filtered with only minimal proofing down for maximum flavour, without added colouring.
Best enjoyed on its own, but we don’t believe in rules when it comes to drinking whisky – sip this neat, over ice, in a cocktail – however you like!
