Darkness 8 Year Old Bottling Note

At the core of this Darkness expression is an 8 year old single malt Scotch whisky which has been matured in ex-bourbon barrels. Following that, the whisky is moved over to custom-made Oloroso sherry octave casks for at least three months. Small casks make for a vastly increased surface area to volume ratio compared to the much larger sherry butts, leading to more cask influence and more of those intense sherried notes we've all come to know and love. Darkness 8 Year Old is a continuous release from the range that was previously built around very limited edition bottlings, though the name of the game hasn't changed - big ol' helpings of sherried deliciousness await you!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Candied orange peels, chocolate peanuts, cooking spice warmth and some dried cherry.

Palate: Amaretti biscuits, subtly toasty hints, powerful raisin and prune, just a touch of earthy oak lingers.

Finish: Slightly oily with a hint of smoke, though chocolatey hints persist.

Big sherry, no bomb to me but 👌🥃

A fair share of sherry casks finishes had lately and really growing into that. The at least 3 months in octave casks have left a fine mark on this one. No sherry bomb to me but a cosy, well sherried comfort dram that anxiously invites to pour another. Which I gladly will …
