Amontillado is considered to be particularly complex among the sherries. Accordingly, the strong wine in the Blair Athol 2008/2023 provides a flavor firework.
Unique casks, personally and locallyselected in Scotland’s whiskey regions, always cask strength, never chill-filtered or coloured. Sounds magical? No wonder, because these Best Drams are the work of Michel Reick, who, as a whiskey druid, makes the magic of hand-picked casks accessible to connoisseurs. Six newcomers allow magical moments of pleasure this week.
The new Best Drams had between 7 and 16 years to develop their exquisite aromas. The single cask bottlings open up exciting perspectives on distilleries on the island of Islay, Speyside and the Lowlands and Highlands for whiskey fans – in combination with aromatic (strong) wine casks.

Nose: A taste firework of an immediate, deep sweetness with dark chocolate tones of nut nougat cream, aromas of plums, some cherries and a hint of cappuccino.
Palate: Very smooth onset, oily covers the entire palate. Playful fruit notes are reminiscent of amaretto. Delightfully soft and sweet, very oily and creamy.
Finish: Medium length and extremely oily.
