Distilled at Craigellachie, this 11-year-old single malt expression was left to the chaps at Darkness for a final twist. Namely, a finishing period in Oloroso sherry octave casks. A very punchy 55.5% abv, this limited edition dram is full to the brim with a sweet, fruity, characteristically Speyside influence.
The nose is an enticing one: expect savoury notes, a gentle waft of sea salt, and some sweet tropical fruits. Rich, oily malt makes itself present on the palate, along with waves of honeycomb, caramel, and a little clove spice. The finish is herbaceous, with a lingering forest floor note.
