This release is from Speyburn Distillery, coming in the 'Cask Strength' range of Connoisseurs Choice. A 2008 vintage, this was bottled after a 12 year long maturation process in a first fill sherry butt, being bottled at 60.3% abv in 2021. It has a natural colour and is free from any chill filtration. 656 bottles have been produced, so get your hands on this one whilst you can.
Rich sherry aromas harmonise with cinnamon and lemon peel. The palate is full of red berries, blood orange and a fruitcake flavour. The finish is medium-bodied, long, and has supple notes of treacle toffee. A speyside whisky through and through, and a quintessential sherry-cask dram.
