The long awaited Batch 17 is here. The cask selection made by Master blender Rachel Barrie truly celebrates the distillery’s house style for which the brand is known for worldwide.
Each whisky is bottled without chill filtration or added colour and at cask strength allowing each cask to freely show its own unique flavours and qualities.
14 different casks have been selected for this year’s release with 7 casks being made available within Europe and the other 7 being available across Asia, Australia, New Zealand and Canada.
We have been fortunate enough to get hold of 3 of the European releases and 5 of the releases produced for further afield.
This 26 Year Old is one of the Asia, Australia, New Zealand and Canada releases from a Oloroso Sherry Butt.
Nose - Milk chocolate and Brazil nut and dark chocolate hazelnut give way to raisin, sultana and creme brulee with stem ginger in treacle.
Palate - Dark chocolate raisin, butterscotch and baked orange, with sultana, fig and almond cake.
Finish - Marzipan-coated fruitcake lingers into the unctuous finish.
