Another 'fyne' single cask bottling from the team at Loch Fyne Whiskies in Inveraray. Distilled in May 2008 at Glentauchers in Speyside, this expression has been matured for 11 years in a single sherry cask before bottling at 57.7% abv. Just 954 bottles have been produced.
The nose is sweet with stewed fruits, black forest gateau, dark chocolate and cherry fondant before more hedgerow fruits, plump cherries and blueberry bubble gum. The palate brings big, bold flavours with an incredibly smooth texture. There's notes of strawberry jam, Garibaldi biscuits, brambles, Turkish Delight, cola cubes and creamy chocolate. The finish brings rich oak, brown sugar and crystallised ginger.
