This is a blended scotch whisky that was matured in a single sherry butt for 38 long years. Distilled in 1980 and bottled in 2019. The cask produced 545 bottles. The bottler is HNWS in Taiwan.
A truly amazing whisky that will change your opinion of blends completely. It also offers a glimpse of how good the "real" sherry casks of the past were. These were actual sherry casks that came from the Solera systems of sherry production.
Bright and juicy, red fruits, varnish, sultana, bubblegum, and a touch of red dates. Palate is juicy and gentle, nice soft spices, medium sweetness and a touch earthy. You also get haw flakes, dried fruits, stewed fruits and more varnish. Chewy and juicy. A brilliant blended whisky with great age.
