2012 Dalrymple (Ailsa Bay).
1st fill Oloroso Sherry Butt – full maturation
56.8%vol 70cl“Blended Malt” – this cask was apparently teaspooned, meaning we were unable to call it a single malt.
The good news is though that you get excellent whisky for a lower price.We’re not allowed to say teaspooned on the label either, but there’s a not so subtle hint in the design. We’ve added a granite teaspoon to indicate this isn’t really a blend and granite because Ailsa Craig, that the Ailsa Bay distillery looks onto, is the source of all the granite for the world’s curling stones.
700 bottles globally from a single sherry butt.
Colour – PepsiNose – Obvious sherry bomb so difficult to be original with the tasing notes here! Raisins, dark chocolate, cognac Palate – Soreen malt loaf, tinned prunes, fresh figs Finish – cinnamon rolls
