This month is all about the Sherry Bomb and both whiskies are from Island Distilleries for our members to compare.
So another CASK STRENGTH BOMB for the month! This time a 14 year old, slightly peated, limited edition, single cask sherry bomb!
From our old mates at Gordon and MacPhail, the Members Small Batch Extra is from their Connoisseurs Choice range – The Highland Park 2006.
A bone crunching Cask Strength bottling of only 618 bottles, aged in a single refill-Sherry Puncheon from another Island Distillery – Highland Park.
Nose: A real tinned tropical fruit salad – almost rummy – vibe on the nose.
Palate: Very fruit driven – more of those tropical fruit salad flavours abound. A milk-arrowroot type maltiness makes itself known, backed up with some vanilla and just a little spice. There is also a very subtle suggestion of smoke there.
Finish: Fades out with a medium, dry finish, then a surprising salty note at the end.
