This blended malt from the ever-inventive Compass Box folks if perfect for whisky fans who love a well-sherried dram. Inspired by working on a whisky with The Spaniard bar in New York City, this expression is built around whisky drawn from sherry and Spanish red wine casks. 48% of the whisky was aged in ex-sherry casks, while a further 25% was aged in ex-Spanish red wine casks.
Nose: Blood orange, toast and sweet orange marmalade. Hints of barley cereal in the depths.
Palate: Orange sponge cake, sherry-soaked walnuts, black cherry, cinnamon and menthol.
