WESTPORT 18 ans 1997 Sherry Wood W&M 58,5%

Blended Malt Whisky, Scotland, 70cl, Ref: 51451

After two successful releases in their core range, this is Wilson & Morgan's first Westport at cask strength, and again the secret of its richness is the maturation in refill sherry casks. The use of refill casks means that it's not a full blast sherry experience, but a subtler one, although the fruity and nutty notes can clearly be felt, together with a more winey impression than in previous bottlings. The overall profile strikes a fine balance between malty sweetness and a drier touch. It’s robust, rich with notes of candied and dried fruit, beeswax, and a firm mineral background. A whisky that manages to be elegant and sturdy at the same time, very old fashioned.

The brand


At the head of this independent merchant, Fabio Rossi continues the long tradition of Italian whisky bottling. His bottlings mainly concern malt whiskies from the isle of Islay, and are characterised by their sherry cask finishings.

The line

The whiskies in the Barrel Selection Cask Strength range are, as the name suggests, bottled straight from the cask, with no dilution, filtration or addition of caramel. Single malts at cask strength are not recommended as an introduction to whisky, they are more for the seasoned enthusiast in search of authenticity. When the selected casks are large (for example sherry butts contain around 500 bottles), the whisky is bottled as a single cask; when they are small, a small blend – always of a single malt – is made from several different casks that are of a very similar character and bottled as a ‘small batch’.
