- Appearance : Old gold with glints of amber.
- Nose : with notes of walnut (walnut oil) and spices, it expresses the sherry cask’s influence. With pronounced rancio, it unveils delicate notes of honey and wild flowers (elderflower, clover).
- Palate : full-bodied and subdued, marked by the sweetness of raisins (Malaga), as well as the lively tannins of oak - green walnut - and spice (ginger).
- Overall : A great example of a sherry cask aged whisky, with a nourishing and alluring aspect.
- The brand
The distillery produces a full palette of malts that enables the group’s master blender to carry out his art: sherry & sweet, woody & vanillic, fruity & estery. The aim is to produce different profiles of single malts - peated or unpeated, extremely fruity to extremely peaty - using a wide variety of yeasts. To further enhance this effect, long fermentations are carried out before distillation. The whisky is then placed in ex-sherry or ex-bourbon casks, or even into new American oak casks. Find out more
