    Forest Distillery Description:

    This is our 2nd filling of a 50 Year old Sherry Cask.
    Rich, sweet and smooth – with a slight addition of soft oak on the palette

    We have blended some really interesting Malt whisky here. All malt, all aged 8 years and above. We have then taken that blend and finished it in Oloroso casks (50 year old wood) here at the distillery. This has now been bottled at 47% in 700ml porcelain bottles using our spring water.

    The story of this cask is a long one, but the results are outstanding. This cask has held Oloroso sherry for 50 years, and then was used for our first ever release of malt whisky. This second use has drawn out even more complex flavours and we are incredibly proud of the whisky. For this second maturation, we have left the blend to rest in the cask for over 12 months at our distillery

    The whisky is a bright gold colour in the glass, purely due to the types of wood this is aged in. We use no added colouring in our whisky.

    On the nose, blend 7 has sweet citrus notes, moving onto toffee apple and apricot with fruity dark chocolate notes lingering.

    On the palate, it has a burst of sweet spice, complimented by charred oak – mirroring the sweet citrus nose with a medium dry peppery finish.

    The bottles are polished black porcelain with a papercut by the artist Georgia Low glazed with real gold.
