Sherry’s influence on single malts is significant. At one of the spectrum could be a full on sherry “bomb” matured for years exclusively in first re-fill casks and at the other a mere hint with a “touch” of sherry finish for a mere month.
Our host for the evening cleverly selected from duty-free three different variants of Sherry expressions. Each explored a different approach to bringing a sherry influence to the whisky.
Here is what we explored with our Sherry expressions evening:
- Macallan Terra 42.8% – 1st fill American and European casks, “seasoned” with Sherry
- Glenmorangie The Tayne 43% – A Fino Amontillado Spanish Sherry “finish”
- Glen Deveron 20 year 40% – Matured in “Sherry Oak”
Read on over the next few days for insights into our impressions, speculations and interpretation of what the distillery shares about the way in which the sherry element influenced each single malt.
