Coming from their non-peated, but wood finished line of whiskies (there are many styles to choose from at this distillery), this is matured initially in ex-bourbon and then finishes aging in previously used Pedro Ximenez sherry casks. As always, this is un-chill filtered and is all natural colored.

Tasting Notes

"This is certainly going to please those sherry whisky lovers by attacking your senses on the nose and the palate with raisins and nuts. There is a moderate amount of wood spices, particularly on the finish. The proof helps to make this whisky not too sweet, but the dried fruits stay with you to the bittersweet end. "
