The Exceptional Malt

  • The Exceptional by Sutcliffe & Son
  • Edinburgh, The United Kingdom

Method & Production

An extraordinary range of mature casks, including Glenfarclas, Ben Nevis, Alt-a’Bhainne, Auchroisk, Glenallachie, Westport, Macallan and a vatted barrel of three storied family owned Speyside distilleries, blended and married in first-fill Oloroso sherry cask.

Tasting notes

Opening nose and palate are effusive with honeyed Christmas cake, tangerine, dark cherry and aniseed. The mid palate evolves into raspberry crumble with intriguing notes of tarragon and spice. The finish lingers with notes of sherry, toffee cream and a returning hint of anise.
