Sooo… Sherry’s your thing, eh? Well do we have a Members Extra for YOU! An Australian Exclusive 1st fill Oloroso Sherry Cask aged whisky all the way from Scotland via Italy we have another ‘Scot-Italian Stallion’ for you to get your mitts (and mouths) on!
After last month’s huge response to the Wilson & Morgan Caol Ila, we have another whisky from these Italian independent bottlers. Last month’s W&M offering was a HUGELY peated whisky, but this month we head in the opposite ‘flavour direction’. Please make welcome, the W&M Glenallachie 2014 (bottled 2021) 1st Fill Sherry Wood. A 1st fill Oloroso sherry aged whisky that hits all the right notes for the fan of the sherry-bomb.
Nose: Very malty and oaky with honey notes.
Palate: Wow – a scorching dryness erupts in your mouth – but also sour cherry notes float about the palate there’s also roast nuts before the sherry notes makes themselves known.
Finish: Becomes sweeter (but never really ‘sweet’) on the finish with sour-apple notes making a stand as it fades. Really gets those inner-cheeks tingling.
A lovely complex whisky with lots going on at all stages. It’s dryness makes for a fantastic aperitif with a pre-diner canapés. If you’re tastes run towards a dry sherry – then this is a whisky that will be very much to your liking.
