Notes

At The Scotch Malt Whisky Society, we love deeply complex and flavourful whisky in our glass. One way to achieve this is through secondary maturation in a wine cask. Here we have two different wine casks on feature – French dessert wine and Spanish sherry – to create a super-bloom of flavours! Cask No. 85.79 Balanced and textured offers up a rich profile of honey, vanilla, orchard fruits and bold spices from time in a 2nd fill Sauternes cask (Suaternes is a sweet white wine from France, made from Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon grapes). Cask No. 55.82 The gathering stillness is one of those sneaky delicious Oloroso sherry casks that was assigned a different flavour profile from the classic "Deep, rich & dried fruits". Don't let this pass you by with notes of red fruits, raisins and nuts with a creamy texture and depth that will beguile your senses!

If ordered separately: Cask No. 85.79= $155; Cask No. 55.82= $190.
