Blair Atholl 10 Year Old, 2011 Ex Sherry Cask by Single Cask Nation
This cask bottling, distilled March 2011, spent 10 years maturing in a 2nd fill PX Sherry Butt. It was bottled at cask strength in May 2021 at 55.3% ABV. Cask # B42HHH yielded 577 bottles.
Nose: Deliciously malty and sweet while exhibiting notes of toffee,
malted milk balls, crushed hazelnuts, warm nougat, and chocolate
Palate: Rich and spicy on first entry with a continuing maltiness from the nose that gives way to fruitcake, dark chocolate, crystallized ginger, and Garibaldi biscuits
Finish: Lingering spice (ground ginger) sits alongside a tart juiciness (think cranberries) while the dark chocolate and fudge notes from before provide a sweet counterpoint
