There it is, the first single malt from Hercynian Distilling bottled exclusively for the whisky dwarf.
And what a great barrel we got here :-)
The Elsburn was distilled in 2014 and was allowed to mature for 6 years from the first to the last day in a small sherry octave barrel of only 65l. The Elsburn was bottled on January 22nd, 2021
In terms of color, this malt is very dark, aromatically highly complex and very round.
A total of 74 bottles were in full cask strength of 55.8% vol. bottled.
The Elsburn is without dyes (non-colored) and without cold filtration (non-chill-filtered).
