Speyside Distillery 18 Year Old Berry's Own single malt Scotch whiskey. 1995 vintage single sherry butt #33 bottled 2013 by Berry Bros & Rudd.
This sherry butt matured dram has a nutty, gently peated style with fruity, citrus overtones. A little leathery note joins the mix. The palate is immediately alive with fruit and although medium in weight it has a pleasing persistance and becomes much nuttier at the finish.
