Cask Islay Sherry Edition - Cask Strength

Cask Islay Sherry Edition

Cask Islay is a classic single malt, epitomising the traditional style of whiskies from Islay. This limited edition has been matured exclusively in two types of sherry casks and bottled at cask strength.

The intense Islay style is enhanced by specially selected Oloroso sherry hogsheads from Tonelería Juan Pino, contributing bold, dried fruit notes to the spirit. Working in tandem, Oloroso sherry-seasoned wine casks from Bodegas Hidalgo La Gitana complement the lighter notes of the spirit, by lending a more subtle, stone fruit character.

Bottled at Cask Strength to preserve the rich, full-bodied mouthfeel and intense, rounded flavours.

Matured in Sherry.
Non-chill filtered. Natural colour.
700ml / 59.9% Alc./Vol.

Tasting Notes

Colour
Burnt orange.
Nose
Maple smoked bacon, dark roast coffee, chopped walnut and sticky dates.
Palate
Almond flakes, smoked berry crumble, apple wood and chilli jam.
Finish
Emerging subtle peach and plum, lasting spice, and a dusting of light ash.

How we craft our Casks of Scotland whiskies

Every malt in our range has been created by carefully selecting up to 20 casks of whisky from one distillery in a region. These casks are then combined, the strength reduced to 46% and bottled without chill-filtration or added colouring. On occasion we also release special limited editions at cask strength.

There will be natural differences between bottlings however they will always be of a similar flavour profile and style and of a consistently high quality, as you would expect from any whisky that bears the A. D. Rattray name.
