Where, traditionally, they use American, French, and Spanish oak to create a timeless sherry-led Whisky, with The One Sherry Cask Finished whisky, it is the characters of Spanish wood which bring a new dimension to the flavour profile.
Softer and more porous, Spanish oak encourages a higher degree of interaction between spirit and cask. The more open grain allows the whisky to travel deeper into the wood, drawing out rich and intense flavours, as well as creating a beautiful and natural colour.
Sherry and whisky enjoy a harmonious relationship, one which, over the years, has helped to create some of the world’s finest whiskies.
Made principally from Palomino grapes grown near Jerez de la Frontera in Andalucia, Sherry is produced in a variety of styles, from the dark and rich Oloroso to the sweeter styles of PX and Cream, and the drier Fino.
The One Sherry Cask Finished demonstrates the flavours that can be derived from the finest PX and Oloroso seasoned casks. The same casks that mature The Lakes Single Malt.
Like all expressions in The One collection, this is a singular release with only 4,512 bottles available in the UK.
Heavily influenced by dark and sweet PX sherry casks, this is a decadent whisky, with a deep, rich and more intense flavour, perfect after dinner or to relax and unwind.
An enticing aroma of Medjool dates, sun-dried raisins, sultanas and polished wood leads to Macadamia nuts, dark chocolate and gentle smoke on the palate, with a long, warming and rich finish.
Bottled at the natural colour, The One Sherry Cask Finished is 46.6% ABV and has been non-chill filtered for a richer mouthfeel and fuller flavour.
