This Strathisla 15 Year Old Darkness takes the characteristics of the Keith distillery and harmonises them with an intensely sherried character. This expression has enjoyed a six month long finishing period in Moscatel sherry octave casks. This small cask gives the whisky a generous helping of sherried, fruity notes.
The nose is a maze of dried tobacco, Lindt chocolate, and a rich aromatic oakiness. Cinnamon, sweet demerara sugar, and freshly picked herbs all settle on the palate. The finish is rich, sweet, with a little kick of spice.
