A showcase of malt whiskies aged in Spanish wine casks.

In this first release, 48% of the whiskies have been aged in ex-Sherry casks and 25% in ex-Spanish red wine casks. The type of casks may change from year to year based on availability and experimentation, but Spanish casks – either Sherry wine casks or Sherry-style wine casks – will always play the key role.

FLAVOR
Full, soft and sumptuous on the palate with notes of citrus peel, red wine and spices. The finish is long, with hints of rich vanilla panna cotta, ripe berries and cherries.

DISTILLERY SOURCING
Made entirely of Highland single malt whiskies from distilleries in and around the villages of Doune, Longmorn, Alness and Aberlour.

BOTTLING DETAILS
Batch TS 2018-A (June 2018). Bottled at 43%. Not chill-filtered. Natural color.

RECOMMENDATIONS
This is a whisky ideal for late evening sipping, served on its own or with a large ice cube or splash of water. Serve in a wine glass as a nod to the Spanish wine cask maturation!

WOOD
Whiskies aged in a mixture of American, European and French oak cask types, some of which previously held Spanish Sherry or red wine.
