Seaweed & Aeons & Digging & Fire & Sherry Casks & Cask Strength Batch 2 70cl
A superb single malt from the Seaweed & Aeons & Digging & Fire range, but this time, there are a few more ampersands in the mix. This edition features the same smoky 10 year old Islay whisky at its heart as the original expression, but instead of only 25% of it getting treated to a finish in sherry casks, the whole lot of it has been finished in them – hence "& Sherry Casks".
Cask Type: Sherry
Nose: Waves of vegetal peat, swiftly backed up by fruit cake and chocolate notes, plus a whisper of sea shell minerality.
Palate: Dried fruit moves to the fore on the palate, with dried cherry and chewy raisin. Still powerfully smoky. A flash of cinnamon and caraway appears later on.
Finish: Seville orange marmalade, smoky peanut shells, a smidge of charred oak, chocolatey mocha.
