What's in a name? Glen Elgin 1991 Sherrywood - Mackillop's Choice whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Glen Elgin 1991 Sherrywood - Mackillop's Choice whiskey, rather than whisky.
There's a lot of phenolic chlorine action going on here leading to stewing blackberries and a profound peppery quality. This is a big whisky not for the faint hearted.
