This spectacular single cask from 2006 is a first-fill, sherry seasoned, Spanish oak butt from Balblair, bottled exclusively for members of The W Club. This expression was distilled in 2006 and matured for 15 years before bottling in 2021 at an eye-watering cask strength 55.8% abv. This expression is pretty special for a couple of reasons; it's the first Spanish oak matured whisky released from Balblair since its rebrand - and will be the only sherry cask they release in 2021. Cask #78 has produced just 378 bottles. The nose is sweet and tropical with notes of pineapple and pear, balanced with spicy oak and rich vanilla. Aromatic spices fill the palate pleasantly, with flavours of dark chocolate and caramelised sugar following in the taste. The finish is long and spiced with hints of candied fruit peel and creamy vanilla. Read More
