Six different Sherry casks have been handpicked for this bottling, to create a full flavoured Sherry influence yet stay balanced. Series 1 is un-chilfiltered and has been bottled at 49.5% to ensure that all the natural flavours are intact.
Only 12,500 bottles available.
|Nose||A nice touch of oloroso sherry is immediately evident reminding us of Glenfarclas 105 (and that definitely a good thing!) A glorious mix of caramel chocolates, salted meats, anejo tequila, dried citrus fruits, dates and walnuts.|
|Taste||Mouth-filling and chewy but not cloying like some overly sherried whiskeys. More of the salty, sherry tang promised on the nose. Hints of chocolate, cured meats, toasted oak, leather, dried orange peel, perhaps a touch of wood smoke (not peat smoke), incense, spice,cinnamon and ginger. Marked by spicy, chewy, fruity flavours that hide the 49.5% alcohol very well.|
