Description

Distillery 24 is perhaps the most iconic distillery in the whole landscape of Scotch whisky. If there’s one single malt brand that’s forever imprinted on the whisky lover’s mind, it’s this one. A rather unique distillation process of small stills and narrow spirit cuts, combined with access to the best sherry casks on earth, make this a rather rare find. Truly an experiential dram that will take your senses on a journey into another realm of flavour, Cask 24.163 is one of the rarest examples of delicate, slow, and sherry cask brilliance from the deepest archives of the Society’s offering for 2022. Something to treasure and open on a rather special occasion.

We gave it a mesmerising stare in the glass, a bright dark burnt umber colour which was followed by a magical wave of a wizard’s ‘Satya Sai Baba Nag Champa’ incense stick – a rich smell of frankincense, other fragrant herbs and resins. Incredibly gentle but still with a ‘tannic grip’, a perfect marriage between dark chocolate, Grand Marnier and candied orange rind – all in a truffle. A tiny drop of water and you will be on a magic carpet ride to Alcaiceria, the Great Bazaar of Granada, while on the palate you watched the sunset over the city and the Alhambra. After twenty-nine years in an ex-Oloroso butt, we transferred this whisky into a 1st fill PX sherry butt.
