Sample at cask strength 61%
A vatting of whisky matured in ex-Tennessee Bourbon, French oak, Spanish oak, Oloroso, Pedro Ximinez and ex French oak Californian red wine casks.
Tasted: Feb 2019
Aromas of dusty cinnamon spiced sherry tannins with sweet malt and barley. Hints of vanilla, slightly treacly sherry and red fruit. Pleasantly balanced with a developing citrius note and earthy spices.

The palate opens with the sweet and treacly sherry with hints of ginger, dark chocolate and winey Pedro Ximinez notes. The tannins bitter a little on the middle but the vanilla, red fruit, barley and malt balance. Good length with a slightly biscuity/ wheaty note coming through in the finish.
