Cask No. 39.223  


Speyside, Lossie

Selected by American Members at The Tasting Panel Experience 2022

The aroma was that of the long-lasting scent called base notes, of an expensive perfume - vanilla, amber, musk, patchouli as well as sandalwood and a hint of smoke. Chewy and unctuous on the palate neat; chocolate brownies, yoghurt coated lightly smoked raisins, demerara sugar, rum and raisin fudge, while in the finish a fascinating layer best described as wood smoke/spice. After reduction we soaked dark cherries in brandy as we enjoyed poached William’s pears in a smooth dark chocolate sauce with the addition of Pedro Ximenes Sherry. After twelve years in an ex-bourbon hogshead, we transferred this whisky into a 1st fill Spanish oak Oloroso hogshead.
