Meikle Tòir The Sherry One 70cl
Guided by revered Master Distiller, Billy Walker, and his team are on a ‘Meikle Tòir‘ (meaning ‘big pursuit’). The goal: to carefully craft and cask-perfect a peerless peated single malt at their Speyside home, The GlenAllachie Distillery.
Expertly matured in quality Pedro Ximénez & Oloroso Sherry puncheons, the casks have imparted rich, fruity notes that mingle harmoniously with warming wisps of peat smoke. Made using mainland peat from St. Fergus, the sweet phenolic content of the whisky amounts to 35 PPM. A lengthy fermentation period of 160 hours results in a fruit-forward spirit that lends itself perfectly to ageing in the finest Sherry oak.
Cask Type: American oak ex-Bourbon barrels, followed by Pedro Ximénez & Oloroso Sherry puncheons
Peated | Natural Colour | Non-Chill Filtered
Nose: Cedarwood and cigar box, alongside butterscotch, mocha and orange peel, with hints of honey and plum jam.
Taste: Rich dark chocolate, smoked honey and mocha, followed by fig syrup, treacle and burnt sugar, with puffs of peat smoke on the finish.
