This is a single cask of spirit distilled at The Glenlivet that was matured for its entirety in a first fill sherry butt and bottled by the prolific independent bottler, Signatory Vintage. This specific cask was selected by The Whiskey Barrel.
Sweet honey, tangerines. Ethanol, confectioners sugar. Leather, toffee, pepper.
Thick, rich, loaded with honey, syrupy prunes. A good deal of heat, but not punishing. Lots of tobacco, musty earthy basement notes, pipe tobacco, figs. Currants, blackberry. Some sulphur.
Long, more heat here but still in check. Pipe tobacco, pepper, honey, figs and date fruits. That tangerine note is back, but theres some cocoa and cardamom.
Overall, big, brash, and flavorful. Not a sulphur bomb like some other releases have been, and loaded with a flavor I really am enjoying.
