This is an independent bottling of spirit distilled at Glenlivet. It was bottled after 11 years of aging in first fill sherry by Signatory Vintage for The Whiskey Barrel. It was bottled to celebrate their 10th anniversary, and was bottled at cask strength without coloring or filtering.
Coconut, orange marmalade, blueberry, raspberry. Vanilla bean. Syrupy fruits. Tobacco. Really unique.
Toffee, sulfur, tobacco. Musty, rich with oak. Mild heat, but thick mouth feel. Syrupy, nutty and loaded with toffee, almonds, raspberry, figs and blackberry.
Long, rich and powerful. A bit hot in the finish. Lots of sulfur, tobacco and almond here. Not as much fruit. More bitter sulfur, with some well integrated oak.
Excellent up until the finish. A bit hot, a bit try, a bit heavy on the sulfur. Otherwise it is phenomenal. Unfortunately the finish brings it down a bit,
