BLENDED USING THE FOLLOWING WHISKIES:BATCH 10 Benrinnes and Girvan added to the previous vattings that included Balmenach, Benrinnes, Dailuaine, Glenfarclas & Invergordon Single Gain
This blended whisky is matured in a sherry solera system whereby we will only ever bottle half of the batting before topping up the casks.
The whisky is bottled at 46% and contains 65% Malt whisky and 35% Grain whisky. Although the bottling will change slightly with each bottling the aim is to retain a solid sherry influence in the blend.
NOSE: Very smooth nose with a delightful rounded sweet sherry note with some coca and vanilla pod. Fresh churned toffee sweets and then a little warming spice notes, the nose is much older than the age statement.
PALATE: Smooth and elegant fruits are the first thing you will notice with this dram, the flavours just go on and on. Some red berries as one would expect with a rich 55% milk chocolate just to add more depth. The taste keeps going with a delicate truffle note and red berries come back in for one last blast of richness on the mid palate.
FINISH: Long sweet notes cling to the side of the palate then you get this stunning effect of warm fruit cake and a little sweet sherry and coca mingling with some sweet spices. dare we say this is a must have dram for the price you won’t find better, the age statement is 12 years the palate is 24+ years in our humble opinion.
