Description

Details

Single PX sherry hogshead #102010. The Spirit of Lewis is new make expression which has matured in fresh Euopean oak for a short period before being bottled.

This is how we Scot's used to make whisky, from a (former) illicit still without computers and matured near the coast in a chilly, damp warehouse.

See our Abhainn Dearg Distillery blog article for review.

Tasting Notes

Details

From The Whisky Barrel Blog

Nose: The result is a spirit with a grassy nose of tinned pears, with the emphasis on tin, sweet cereal, and a mildly herbal note.

Palate: Quite voluptuous in the mouth, smooth, with plump barley, and very drinkable.

Finish: Short to medium in length, gently spicy and slightly metallic, with a final fruit and nut chocolate taste.
