Info: A collaboration between Gonzalez Byass and renowned whisky distiller Richard Paterson. 26 malts and six grains are expertly blended together in Scotland and then transported to the Gonzalez Byass Bodega in Jerez, where it is finished in Perdro Ximinez sherry barrels.
Colour: Rich amber, golden rust.
Nose: Packed with raisin sherry fruits, really thick and dark fruits, which intertwine interestingly with bucketfulls of vanilla and malty tones once the air has had a moment to get to it, citrus fruits too.
Palate: The palate is really sweet and easy, again lots of vanilla and raisins, like a great rum and raisin fudge. Nice and thick feeling.
Finish: The finish shows some spices at first which makes it interesting before the warm winter stewed fruits come forward to leave a nice warming tone on your chest. There’s a nice sappy oakiness to back everything up.
