A single first-fill sherry butt works its magic here, adding beautifully rich fruit and spice notes. An ideal after-dinner dram.
Core FlavourRich toffee and stewed fruit
Cask detailsDistillates from the early 2000's matured in a Oloroso Sherry Butt
NoseBig toffee and baked raisins with butterscotch and charred oak.
PalateStewed autumnal fruits, rhubarb and Cox’s apples baked with brown sugar. Flavours of marzipan and dark chocolate coat the palate while a touch of peppery spice add a subtle savoury element.
FinishBonfire smoke and rich espresso linger with notes of treacle.

Much to my liking – it reminds me of some official Glenrothes.
Like an exhilarating run through a haunted house with your trousers on fire.
Dense and energetic profile. It would easily replace a wake-up call!
