Dimensions Auchindoun Sherry Cask 2008 13 Year Old Description
A mystery fit for a sleuth! This 2008 Sherry Cask Auchindoun has a past of intrigue, so let’s establish what we do know. Bottled in 2021, this has spent 13 years aging in ex-sherry oak casks. Bottled at a cask strength of 55.4% abv, this is a punchy dram. The yield from this single-cask malt is 191 bottles. Free from chill filtration and artificial colouring, this is bottled by Duncan Taylor as part of their Dimensions series.
The element of mystery is the location of the Auchindoun distillery. Though they profess to be a Speyside distillery, no one has ever confirmed where the distillery is. So the next time you are walking through the jaw-dropping mountainous scenery of Speyside, follow your nose! It may lead you onto a hidden treasure (but if you want to find the treasure without the exploration, this bottle will more than suffice!).
Nose: nutty, sweet caramel, vanilla.
Palate: toasted oak, dark cherries, figs.
Finish: tropical fruits, oaty biscuits.
