Review by Writers Tears

Colour

Rich Ruby Red

Nose

Orange peel, dried fruits and sherry plums

Palate

Nutty Oloroso, Spicy Raisins and creamy oak

Finish

Long and wonderfully complex with a flourish of orange. An unhurried journey.

Note

This exquisite, triple-distilled single malt is matured only in select handpicked Spanish sherry butts which have previously been seasoned with the finest Oloroso sherry. It is the influence of these scarce butts that give this expression of Writers Tears its signature rich, ruby hue and hence the moniker – ‘Red Head’. The expression is distilled without chill filtering as nature intended and at a distinctive 46% ABV.
