Proefnotitie

Full, soft and sumptuous on the palate with notes of citrus peel, red wine and spices. The finish is long, with hints of rich vanilla panna cotta, ripe berries and cherries.

Notitie

Introducing our new malt whisky blend, showcasing whiskies aged in Spanish wine casks.

Inspired by an eponymously named bespoke whisky we recently created for a bar in New York City called The Spaniard, we decided to explore the sherried style further to create a new whisky for our permanent range.

The name is a nod to our founders chance encounter with a man in the South of Spain, where he was introduced to Sherry for the first time.

In this, our first release, 48% of the whiskies have been aged in ex-Sherry casks and 25% in ex-Spanish red wine casks. You will find a whisky that is full, soft and sumptuous on the palate with flavours of citrus peel and pears poached in red wine and spices. Its a whisky ideal for late evening sipping or stirring into a cocktail.
