Note: This is a back release and as such the boxes may have varying degrees of very minor bruising and/or scuffing.

Tasting note: [20ml sample] If it's peated, it's not immediately obvious, likewise the Oloroso needs time to show its wares. Ample air contact sees the peat at the forefront. Finally, the smoke recedes, becoming meaty, sweet and leathery with a touch of burnt orange. An enormous malt with the peat and sherry in controlled tension, and yet you can enjoy this uncut. Smoked meats and hints of seville orange lead into an intense, peppery finish. Tangy, vibrant and long. Rewards patience. 563 bottles. 51.1% Alc.Vol.
