The Darkness! independent bottling range sees oodles of top-notch whiskies receive a finishing period in specially coopered, 50-litre sherry casks – these smaller casks offer a greater surface area to volume ratio than your run-of-the-mill hogshead or what-have-you, meaning more cask influence. This release from the range is a 27 year old Bladnoch single malt, finished in a tiny Pedro Ximénez cask and bottled with an equally tiny outturn of just 100 bottles.
Nose: Aromas of thick stewed fruits, brandy butter and digestive biscuits come through among wood polish, rich barley, clove and chocolate sauce.
Palate: With syrupy dark fruit, malt wine and toffee apples, there’s a light helping of Campino and chocolate covered raisins. Sherried spices and toasted oak add depth.
Finish: Deep and yet delicate; a touch of dried cherries and oily walnuts are present.
Overall: A lip-lickingly delicious dram, surging with flavour, character and that charming sherry darkness.
