Craigellachie / 19 year Exceptional Cask Sherry Butt / 750mL / Limit 1 Per Customer
Matured in second fill sherry butts. No mistaking the sherry here, as this is a rich and soulful whisky with a heavily nutty character on the nose along with hints of dark chocolate and furniture polish. The palate kicks up much of the same character, boldly nutty with notes of spiced sugar, vanilla cookies, sesame oil, and a bit of red pepper. Racy strands of citrus peel and cloves linger on the lengthy, immersive finish. Despite 19 years in a sherry cask, it’s been tempered enough (thanks to the second fill, probably) to find a near perfect balance. Tough to put down. 110.4 proof.
