The Story of the Spaniard

Blended Malt Scotch Whisky

This malt whisky blend, first released in 2018, showcases whiskies aged in Spanish wine casks. Inspired by an eponymously named bespoke whisky we created for a bar in New York City called The Spaniard, we decided to explore the sherried style further to create a whisky for our permanent range.

Released in batches, The Story of the Spaniard is our tribute to Sherry's broad spectrum of styles. Full, soft and sumptuous on the palate, this is a whisky packed with flavours of citrus peel and pears poached in red wine and spices. Ideal for late evening sipping or stirring into a cocktail.

Check the back label on your bottle for the batch number and refer to the recipe wheels on the product page for the full recipe breakdown. The first batch of this whisky was TS 2018-A. Bottled at 43%, April 2018. Not chill-filtered, natural colour.
