Elements of Islay Sherry Cask is part of the new core range trilogy alongside Cask Edit and Bourbon Cask. It is matured in first fill and refill Sherry butts and hogsheads and is bottled at a higher strength of 54.5% to fully showcase the whisky’s natural personality.
Islay Single Malt from a South Coast distillery brings flavors of dried fruits and dark chocolate, while a distillery on the North Coast contributes notes of lemon oil and Arbroath smokie.
NOSE: The lingering scent of tobacco remains in an empty sandalwood cigar box. Arbroath smoke sits alongside aromatic notes of lemon oil, ginger root, and a hint of menthol.
PALATE: Rich and unctuous. Dark-chocolate-dipped candied orange slices and chunks of crystalised stem ginger. Muscovado sugar syrup provides a sticky, dark drizzle over date-studded ginger cake. Sweet smoke and dried autumn fruits sit in the background.
FINISH: Treacle toffee and smoky black tea, sweetened by dark brown sugar. A long, sweet, rich, and spicy finish.
