    Made up of whiskies from up to 40 different distilleries, this third-in-the-series distillery-only [didn’t think they existed anymore] cask-series blend has seen maturation in ruby port casks.

    N: With an easy-to-spot ruby port influence first up, we’ve a pleasing sweet nose, tannins providing some body. All good so far.

    T: Very easy, light [thin] body, though with some soft sweet sustaining malty pepperiness. It’s all very tempered at 40%, though despite the minimal abv, there still appears to be some residual [barley] oils,…

    F: ,… with enough clinging sustain into a fair tannic ruby-sweet finish – a fine substitute to oloroso and certainly PX. Furthermore, for the price, there’s some fair age behind this – perhaps even beyond the 8yo age statement.

    C: Sweet, tasty, and affordable, £25 is “mad value” [presenter], in-line with BBR’s ‘Sherry Cask’ blended malt.
