Distilled 1/6/1956 Bottled 27/2/2007
Aged for 50 years in a single Sherry Butt cask#1758
Only 435 bottles released at natural cask strength 47.3% ABV
An incredibly dark whisky, very rich in texture.
Initially, the nose is delicate-not what you would expect after seeing the colour. Once a little air has interacted, strong sherry aromas emerge, bringing forth a waterfall of scents varying from lychees to papaya.
As you would expect from a whisky of this calibre and age, the presence of the oak is strong. Adding a little water takes the edge away from the tannins, revealing flavours of brandy and armagnac.
A powerful whisky. Although less than 50% Vol, it tastes much stronger and this is evident on the finish.
