Balmenach 18yo Darkness

From the Balmenach Distillery comes a single malt Scotch whisky which has been aged for 18 years, including a stint in a Moscatel sherry octave cask, and independently bottled for the Darkness range. Octaves are much smaller than your standard cask, which means there's a greater surface area to volume ratio, leading to more interaction between the wood and the whisky. Lots of sherried notes here, and it's also a great chance to taste Balmenach's single malt, which isn't seen all too often.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Wonderfully chocolatey, with lighter hints of zesty orange and barley peeking through.

Palate Festive spices leading to a hint of mulled wine, with the malty notes once again keeping it grounded.

Finish Oodles of vanilla and biscuity notes linger.
