Ultimate Beverage Challenge 95 points - Aromas of spiced apples and leather are bold. The palate starts silky smooth with cinnamon raisin, pastry and moderate campfire smoke. The texture turns somewhat grainy and finishes with salted caramel and earthy complexity. (Apr 2014)
The XXV is a batch-produced whisky finished in individually selected ex-sherry butts.
The Oloroso-soaked oak imparts a nutty spiciness and enriches the flavour of the expression.
Each cask is individually monitored in the finishing process to ensure only the subtlest sherry tones are added to this intense, silky and elegant whisky.
