This exquisite, triple-distilled single malt is matured only in select handpicked Spanish sherry butts which have previously been seasoned with the finest Oloroso sherry. It is the influence of these scarce butts that give this expression of Writers’ Tears its signature rich, ruby hue and hence the moniker – ‘Red Head’. The expression is distilled without chill filtering as nature intended and at a distinctive 46% ABV.
COLOUR Rich ruby red.
NOSE Orange peel, dried fruits and sherry plums.
PALATE Nutty Oloroso, Spicy Raisins and creamy oak.
FINISH Long and wonderfully complex with a flourish of orange. An unhurried journey.
