Description

Have you been into whisky for a while? Do you have a particular sherried whisky that stands out for you above all others? Well, this is that whisky. No kidding. Cask 24.169 Seared foie gras and lingonberry jam is one of those miraculous casks from a Speyside distillery whose sherried whisky prowess needs no introduction. Notes of cinnamon buns, raspberry ice cream, brioche, and rich Oloroso sherry. Limit of 1 bottle per member and on ballot for May Outturn, being drawn midday AEST Wednesday 15 May 2024.

 

We were busy in the kitchen baking gingerbread as well as malt loaf and one panellist’s favourite from mum ‘ooey-gooey’ cinnamon buns with raspberry and blackberry jam. On the palate like a baked Alaska flambe served with pistachio and raspberry ice cream. Diluted a dark chocolate brownie with burnt raisins or a dark warm sourdough bread dipped into a balsamic fig dipping sauce emerged. The taste was deeply characterful, mature yet graceful – seared foie gras and lingonberry jam on brioche toast. In 2018 we combined selected Oloroso butts before returning the single malt to a variety of different casks to develop further. This is one of those casks.
