Elegant and smooth, Sherry Cask 43% is a core range Limeburners expression representing the brilliance of Australian Sherry barrels.
This single malt was first matured in ex-bourbon American oak barrels for 3 to 5 years before being finished in a Sherry cask, imparting flavours of honeycomb, burnt orange and maple sweetness.
Prior to bottling this expression is hydrated with pure Albany water, to bring it to an approachable 43%.
Handcrafted using traditional methods and copper pot stills, Sherry Cask is a sophisticated single malt that can be appreciated by new and experienced whisky drinkers.
As each barrel will exhibit its own unique characteristics, creating slight variation from barrel to barrel, we utilise a solera system whereby several casks are emptied to a large holding tank and left to marry. Half of the blended batch is then sent for filtering and bottling, and the remaining half is retained and the blending tank is topped up with new barrels. Adopting this approach ensures there is a consistency of our products from batch to batch.
The average age of this product is 5 to 8 years.
