Cask 587 (2016)- MOW- 59.7% ABV
The above cask was originally an American oak hogshead seasoned with Oloroso sherry for a 2-year period prior to filling back in 2016. In 2019, it was deemed that this cask was at risk of becoming over mature, so the whisky was re-racked into refill Hogsheads. These refill casks have slowed the maturation process down nicely to produce an exquisite 5-year-old bottling.
Nose- Initial rich hints of caramelising brown sugar opens up to dried fruity notes of Dates and Raisins, rich Christmas cake and back notes of creamy sweet vanilla, salted caramel
Palate- nutty hints of hazel and walnut lead into a spicy, tongue coating mouthfeel and a caramel finish.
