An intense exploration of sherry wood maturation, the nose revels in aromas of chocolate brownie, black tea, singed oak, walnut oil, black cherry, briarwood pipes, beechnuts, and peppercorn. Warming flavors of chocolate, dark fruit, Magic Shell chocolate, coffee grounds, black cherry, raisins, baked plum, soft oak, baking spices, and gingersnap. The sherry cask characteristics have imbued expansive and unfathomable depths of flavor on this epic whisky. (Annual release of 5,200 bottles)
