PX Sherry is the sweet one of the group, and the nose on this whisky confirmed that quality. It was richly endowed with sweet wine and floral citrus notes, with a note of rosemary and a trace of old wood.

The nose is nutty and well-sherried, almost overwhelming at time with its youthful cereal and intensely winey notes. The palate is found a bit on the green side, flush with more cereal and more of that sherry note, a banana-walnut loaf of a whiskey, sweet at times, but heavy with a leathery character as the finish emerges

Well, the clue is in the name. A beautifully sweet flavour foundation from first fill American white oak ex-bourbon barrels, all the way from Missouri, via Kentucky. Then the complex, rounded flavours of Oloroso from Montilla, rested in Spanish oak from Galicia. It's Irish whiskey given both barrels. . . #whiskeywednesday #irishwhiskey #whiskeygram #instadram #whiskey #whisky Bowmore 15 Year is aged in a combination of ex-bourbon and sherry casks. However, it's the portion of the whisky that ages the final 3 years in first fill sherry casks that really gives this whisky that deep rich color and fruity taste. Note: this expression was formerly called Bowmore Darkest 15 Year. Bowmore 15 Year / Photo Credit: Bowmor I’ve already written an article Sherry and oak on my sherry blog but I thought a new one was necessary, this time from a whisky perspective.
Pandorga 2014 (Cota 45)I mentioned this wine briefly after a meeting with Ramiro Ibáñez in Belgium and I’ve opened several bottles already, but somehow it never made it ontoCanadian Club often gets ignored for two main reasons. 1) the U.S. market has yet to embrace the depth of the Canadian whisky industry. 2) There’s still discrimination against any whiskey that has “blended” on the label. All of that aside, Canada makes some damn fine whisky and this extremely small batch sherry cask finished Canadian Club is one of them.

I toured Macallan this summer and they were very upfront with the idea that they get Sherry casks produced for them for the sole purpose of aging their whisky. They indicated a 2 year seasoning period from their Juarez site.You mentioned the limited amount of whiskies aged in actual Solera casks. Glenfiddich indicates that they age their 15 year old in a solera system – does that mean they age it through different casks and never empty the final one? Seems a tad misleading.
Bowmore Darkest hails from one of the world’s oldest running scotch distilleries. This expression is aged for 12 long years in ex-bourbon barrels before it’s transferred to Olorosso casks for an additional three years of mellowing.

Hello from Korea! I thank you for this amazing article, I really enjoyed reading it. I thought it deserves more attention, I was passing it around to my friends and soon I thought, it’d be so much widely read if it’s in Korean. So I translated it into Korean and posted it on my blog. I made it very clear about the reference(your blog), so I hope you forgive me for not asking for your permission first…? Anyway, thanks for your article again. Nosing: Taste: Finish: Comment: There is a great deal of complexity in this whisky - but only across a range of fruit influences, rather than crossing into bitter or savory territory. The Oloroso sherry is more prominent in this whisky than are the Pedro Ximenez casks. There are some hints of spice, but they come and go quickly
Bushmills Sherry Cask Reserve is pure single malt whisky, not a blend like the cheaper Bushmills. While it is a no-age-statement (NAS) whisky, it is matured exclusively in Oloroso sherry butts. That certainly sounds at least minimally promising - although it is disappointingly bottled at the minimum strength of 40% ABV I have no indications that they would use special casks. Most of the colour comes from the oak anyway, not the wine. Many of the bespoke casks are made of European oak, which imparts a dark colour quite rapidly. Then there’s also the toasting / charring level of the casks, which caramelizes sugars in the wood more. Natural caramel colouring if you like. Macallan - Sherry Oak Highland Single Malt 2019 Edition 18 year old Whisky 70cl / 43% The Macallan Sherry Oak 18 Year Old is widely recognised as one of the World's finest whiskies and the signature whisky of the distillery This is a 23 year Clynelish that was matured in sherry casks and bottled at 54.8% ABV. Nose: Fairly closed off with brief hints of a rich, sherried malt underneath - heavy chocolate notes (cocoa pebbles cereal), figs, blackberry jam, and a little nectarine appears with a bit of water. Palate: Still rather closed off here - more cocoa with slightly biting oak, blackberry preserves, and leather
Domecq ManzanillaIt may be a bit confusing to outsiders, but this Manzanilla is the resulting effort of three bodegas. First there is Pedro Domecq, the legendarySpicy baked apples, mango, and sticky rice, and dark cherries lead the way. Old leather and hazelnut make a brief appearance as the taste shifts from ripe fruits towards Sichuan peppercorns, bready barley, and a nice dose of toasted oak. The fruits and spice combine for a finish that lingers as it warms.A bushel of dried fruits dominates as hints of wildflowers and caramel mingle upfront. That high-rye content kicks in with a burst of sharp spice next to dark cherries and plums cut with rich and dark caramel. A nuttiness comes into play alongside a hint of creamy vanilla-laced bread pudding that leads to a lingering note of spicy dried fruits. Here’s my report 🙂 https://www.sherrynotes.com/2017/bodegas/bodega-visit-tour/visiting-bodegas-lustau/ A complex question with perhaps no clear widely accepted answer. The process of aging whiskey in wine or sherry barrels that you refer to is generally known as finishing the whiskey. Many whiskeys spend most of their lives in one cask, but.

He created the Saged Sherry with bartender Tracy Fabricante. There's a bit of a viscous mouth feel from the pear puree, and you finish with a bold, smooth note from the whisky.

In the article I’m looking at what sherry casks were in the past and how this evolved to the current-day ‘sherry seasoned casks’ which are tailor-made for the whisky industry. They have little to do with the production of sherry and while most of the images will show romantic bodegas full of old casks, virtually none of these will end up in Scotland.About two weeks ago I was in the sherry triangle to host a sherry tasting but also to further investigate the relationship between the sherry industry and the whisky industry, more specifically the definition of a sherry cask as used in both industries. I am regularly hosting tastings with a line-up of sherry and whisky, and there is still a lot of confusion among whisky lovers when it comes to sherry and sherry casks.
