Description

A welcome back to a long-aged grain whisky for the Society, but with a twist. We’ve taken a 29yo grain whisky from a closed distillery, and then extra-matured it in one of the finest Tevasa-sourced sherry casks on earth. This proved to be an incredible extra-maturation here, lifting the spirit up and creating the well-earned Deep Rich & Dried Fruits profile. Notes of tea tree, polished oak, aged rum, putty, camphor, raisins and aged pinot. The palate had even more with banana rum cocktails, mineral oils, leather and black pepper. A stunner. Also, incredible value. Look at what comparable sherried spirit from this distillery is found for…

An initial nose that suggested toasty and polished oak, serrano ham, waxed canvass, tea tree oil and aged demerara rum. Also touches of Spanish brandy, cocoa nibs and apple chutney. Some water brought out a surprising depth with putty, camphor, cooking oils, raisins and aged pinot noir. In the mouth we got toasted coconut, clove syrup, banana rum cocktails, mineral oils, leather, game meats and posh ginger beer. Reduction added a warm black pepper quality, along with liquorice, furniture oils, lanolin, wintergreen and fennel seed. Sweet cinnamon and some stodgy madeira cake in the finish. Matured in a bourbon hogshead for 29 years before transfer to a 1st fill Spanish oak oloroso sherry hogshead.
