A glorious blended malt Scotch from Wilson & Morgan, this one will be a real treat for fans of a well-sherried dram. Combining single malts from the northern Highlands, this Westport blend was matured for a generous 18 years, starting off in refill oloroso sherry butts before finishing in first-fill oloroso butts. Distilled in 2004, it was bottled up at cask strength in 2022.
Nose Rich notes of vinous dried fruit, honeyed nuts, and juicy apricot.
Palate Plump raisins, berries, and stewed stone fruits lead to sweet, nutty malt, and rich oak with prickles of cracked pepper.
Finish Dense sherried fruit and nuts with hefty layers of leathery oak, balanced by root ginger and warming spice.
