  3. Blake or Mortimer? scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Laphroaig (65%) and Caol Ila (make an educated guess...).
    Peat and Sherry, easy but iften very good.
    Not overly sherried despite the color.
    Good one.

    Notes by producer;

    Elements of Islay Sherry Cask is part of the new core range trilogy alongside Cask Edit and Bourbon Cask. It is matured in first fill and refill Sherry butts and hogsheads and is bottled at a higher strength of 54.5% to fully showcase the whisky’s natural personality.

    Islay single malt from a south coast distillery brings flavours of dried fruits and dark chocolate, while a distillery on the north coast contributes notes of lemon oil and Arbroath smokie.

    Tasting Notes;

    NOSE
    The lingering scent of tobacco remains in an empty sandalwood cigar box. Arbroath smokie sits alongside aromatic notes of lemon oil, ginger root and a hint of menthol.

    PALATE
    Rich and unctuous. Dark-chocolate-dipped candied orange slices and chunks of crystalised stem ginger. Muscovado sugar syrup provides a sticky, dark drizzle over date-studded ginger cake. Sweet smoke and dried autumn fruits sit in the background.

    FINISH
    Treacle toffee and smoky black tea, sweetened by dark brown sugar. A long, sweet, rich and spicy finish.
