Lindores The Casks of Lindores Sherry Cask Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
Fully matured in Oloroso butts as evidenced by the spectacular colour, this is the third and final bottling of a limited edition series making up the core cask types of Lindores Abbey MCDXCIV. Our tasting from a 20ml sample revealed a medium bodied style that falls into a fresher sherried spectrum. Early cocoa and walnut fudge are followed by prunes and fruit bread while late hints of dried figs, cinnamon and fruity dark chocolate add interest. Elegance is the key word here, which is unexpected for such a relatively young malt. 49.4% Alc./Vol. Non chill filtered.
Notes from the producers... Nose: Mellow fruity prunes, dates, molasses, touches of vanilla and milk chocolate. Palate: Mellow dried fruits, molasses, dark chocolate with layers of cinnamon and ginger combined with a pleasant nuttiness like walnuts and chestnuts. Smooth texture. Finish Medium to long.
