Balmenach 10 Year Old - 2013 | Thompson Bros.
This exciting new release from Thompson Bros has had a rather interesting journey! Bottled from a sherry butt but previous to this, the liquid spent six years maturing in sherry hogsheads then two years in Oloroso octaves followed by two years in a sherry butt! Aptly named 'Sherry Train' the whisky is said to be delicious and surprisingly not overwhelmed by sherry or oak...
