Cadenhead’s ‘Original Collection’ A Speyside Distillery 13 Year Old 700ml 46%
Sherry Cask whisky from an unnamed Speyside distillery.
Cask Type: Oloroso sherry
Bottling Date: February 2022
Who doesn’t love a Speyside mystery malt! This beauty was aged for 13 years in full term Oloroso sherry consisting of 50% first-fill and 50% refill ex-oloroso casks. The colour speaks for itself really. Like with all Cadenhead’s, the whisky is un-chill filtered with natural colour and the result is a sherry missile brimming with complexity, even at 46% alc.
