2018 has been a year of firsts for Annandale Distillery.
In June, we selected a limited number of casks from our first 2014 production to produce the first Single Cask, Single Malt Scotch Whisky from Annandale Distillery for nearly 100 years.
Now, we proudly unveil another first - the first Annandale Single Cask, Single Malt Scotch Whisky to be matured in sherry butts.
For this release, we were lucky enough to obtain authentic Oloroso Spanish oak sherry butts from Miguel Martin, Spain. These hard-to-come-by sherry butts were used to mature Spanish sherry time and time again. Selected by Dr Jim Swan, they represent a singular approach to maturing single malt whisky. The result is a stunning depth of flavour.
We've selected just one cask of smooth unpeated Man O'Words from our 2015 production for this sherry release, and each bottle is individually marked with cask and bottle number, and presented in a striking gift box.
A well-integrated, sweet whisky with an initial blast of honey, toffee and vanilla cream. Great balance between sweet summer flowers and tropical fruit of melon and mango.
A mixture of walnuts and almonds mixed with dried fruits of plum and raisins.
