Our Sherry Wood single malt whiskey is a story of return. We mature this whiskey in casks that began their lives in the deep forests of the American South before making a long journey across the ocean and back again. It was in Spain where the oak was first bent into staves for casks that would hold Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso sherry for nearly a century. Once emptied, they were given new life and purpose in the skilled hands of Rafael Cabello and his team at Toneleria del Sur in Montilla, Spain. Our long-standing partnership with his family-owned cooperage provides us with one of the largest supplies of sherry casks in the new world-casks that lend the whiskey a decadence that intensifies both the malt and fruit notes indicative of our house style.
|Soft pancakes with maple syrup leads on the nose, closely followed by oatmeal raisin cookies and a selection of stewed yellow and green fruits. The palate adds some grapefruit to the pancake breakfast while the oatmeal raisin cookies begin to share the plate with some gingersnap cookies. With time in the glass, dried mango and star fruit emerge with a touch of kiwi to round things off.

Made from 100% malted barley and aged in former sherry casks, this amber whiskey has a dry, bracing scent brushed with dried apricot and brown sugar. Just a splash of water brings out custard-like notes, alongside vanilla, chamomile tea and stone fruit, finishing with a wisp of smoke.
