“At Auchentoshan, we’re really excited to launch the Single Cask programme, and I personally handpicked a refilled Oloroso Sherry Butt for Singapore as I felt it would appeal to the Asian palate, allowing more of the spirit character from the distillery to come through,” enthuses Auchentoshan’s Master Blender Ron Welsh.

On the nose, the 1987 30 Years Old Single Sherry Cask reveals sweet honey and molasses notes moving to exotic fruits, guava, melon and white peaches. You can taste acacia honey with lychees and rose petal, cooked apple sprinkled with cinnamon, a hint of white pepper, sweet spices and light ginger with a finish of sweet fresh oaky spices and vanilla.
