Cotswolds, Sherry Cask Single Malt (700ml)
Sherry Cask Release
Our Sherry Cask expression begins with our new make spirit which is already incredibly smooth and fruity thanks to the pair of yeasts we use, the long 90-hour fermentation and the tight heart cut on the spirit still.
We dilute it to 63.5% ABV before filling a combination of casks seasoned with Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez for full term maturation.
This is the only whisky in our Cask Expressions Range which has been blended across cask types, though all of them are sherry casks.
Over the years we’ve aged our whisky in a variety of casks made from different woods (both Spanish and American oak), in different sizes (250-litre Hogsheads and 500-litre Butts) and seasoned with different wines (dry Oloroso and sweet Pedro Ximénez).
Every year we create a blend from these various cask types with the aim of delivering the ultimate sherried whisky experience.
Each batch will be unique, but will always be 100% matured in sherry casks.
Nose: Brown sugar and cherry pie with a touch of roasted coffee beans.
Palate: Viscous and rich. Full of dark stone fruits, chocolate and a hint of roasted almonds.
Finish: Peppery oak spice accompanied by notes of dried fruits.
