Features

Darkness 8 Year Old Sherry Finish maturation journey starts in ex-bourbon barrels after which is further aged in custom-made Oloroso sherry octave casks over three months. These smaller, custom-made octaves create the perfect harmony between wood and whiskey. What ultimately flows out of the barrel is a rich sherried drop that best suits your distinguished palate. Every sip kicks off with a toasty, fruity and nutty whiff, then rolls onto the tongue with a toffee sweetness accompanied by candied almonds, dried fruits and amaretti biscuits. A breath of smoke lingers in the finish, though the chocolatey sweetness remains on the palate.

Tasting Notes

Nose
Candied orange peels, chocolate peanuts, cooking spice warmth and some dried cherry.

Taste
Amaretti biscuits, subtly toasty hints, powerful raisin and prune, just a touch of earthy oak lingers.

Finish
Slightly oily with a hint of smoke, though chocolatey hints persist.
