Glenallachie 1989  |  Bot. 2018  |  Cask #986 50cl / 57.7% | Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky | Distillery Bottling

One of a pair of 1989-vintage drams from the Glenallachie 50th anniversary collection, overseen by new distillery owner Billy Walker, the first whiskies released since he took over. This half of the pair was bottled from a sherry butt, and you can tell – stacks of sherry cask cask character layers on top of aromatic fruit, gentle spice and the slightest hint of struck match.

Glenallachie 1989  |  Bot. 2018  |  Cask #2587 50cl / 54.8% | Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky | Distillery Bottling

Half of a due of 1989-vintage whiskies from the Glenallachie 50th anniversary collection.

Unlike its twin, this was matured in a hogshead – we assume a sherry one – and has a more elegant character. Sultanas rather than full on raisin and gentle spice.

Glenallachie 1990  |  Bot. 2018  |  Cask #2515 50cl / 44.9% | Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky | Distillery Bottling

Part one of a diptych: comparing and contrasting two 1990-vintage sherry butts, with cask numbers only two apart. This is one of the releases from Glenallachie's 50th anniversary collection, the first releases after the distillery was taken over by industry veteran Billy Walker. The whisky is more elegant than the other sherried entries in the range and is a contrast to its more concentrated sister cask (#2517). It's no shrinking violet, with rich nut and toffee notes, but it keeps its sherry influence restrained and moreish, with plump dried fruit and subtle stone fruit notes.

Part two of the 1990-vintage pair in the Glenallachie 50th anniversary collection, showing a different side to sherry maturation than its sister cask, #2515. Selected by distillery owner and industry veteran Billy Walker, this is a full-on sherried dram, with more subtlety and complexity than you might expect. Well balanced dried fruit and spice backed up against a background of fresh berries and chocolate.

Ardmore 1996  |  21 Year Old  |  A D Rattray 70cl / 59% | Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Ardmore is a bit different to its Speyside counterparts due to its dedication to making smoky spirit. This AD Rattray bottling shows that off in spades, with the smoke restrained and elegant thanks to its 21 years in a bourbon hogshead. Distilled on 27 August 1996 and bottled on 5 March 2018.

A well-aged dram from Tobermory on the island of Mull. Matured for 21 years including some time finishing in a Manzanilla sherry cask.

This heavily peated Swedish whisky was aged in Bordeaux wine casks (known as ‘barriques’), adding fresh notes of red berries to wilder aromas of smoke and bonfires. The palate is thick and rich, with plenty of dark-berry fruit, roasted nuts and more smoke. A drop of water unlocks yet more fruit.

Inchgower 1999 | 18 Year Old | Old Particular

Inchgower 1999  |  18 Year Old  |  Old Particular 70cl / 48.4% | Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Inchgower doesn't pop up often as a single malt, with almost all of it going into blended whiskies, but thanks to independent bottlers like Douglas Laing we occasionally get to try it on its own. This Old Particular bottling was distilled in October 1999 and matured in a sherry butt for 18 years before being bottled in February 2018. The sherry has done its work but this rich and fruity dram is still shot through with Inchgower's fresh and fruity style.

North British is well-known for producing a heavier spirit than Scotland's other grain distillers, and this 25-year-old release from AD Rattray has given it enough time to shrug off some of that weight and display the elegance that grain can take on after 25 years in a sherry cask.
