Darkness 8 Year Old Description

This 8-year-old single malt Scotch whisky from Darkness has been matured initially in ex-bourbon barrels, before being finished in custom-made Oloroso sherry octave casks for at least three months. Smaller sherry casks allow for a vastly increased surface area to volume ratio compared to larger sherry butts, leading to a greater cask influence that provides more concentrated and vibrant sherry notes. 

The nose is toasty, fruity and nutty, with a toffee sweetness that fills the palate alongside candied almonds, dried fruits and amaretti biscuits. A hint of smoke lingers in the finish, though the chocolatey sweetness persists.
