Blackadder is a boutique, family-run and owned independent bottler of Scotch whisky, established in 1995 by Robin Tucker. Prior to his journey into the world of Indie bottlings, Robin was a music journalist, enjoying the large life, travelling the world and interviewing the likes of ABBA and Rod Stewart. However, a passion for Uisge Beatha saw Robin carve out a different path.
Blackadder are a constantly evolving and adapting business, with a firm philosophy of not compromising, and delivering their releases as honest and raw as possible. Most releases are single cask, cask strength versions with no-chill filtration or colour additions.
This release from Blackadder in their 'The Legendary' series is a bottling of single cask 'LTB 2014-02'. We don't know much about this one, other than it being from an undisclosed Highland distillery that has had an ex-sherry cask finish before being bottled with no-colour additions or chill-filtration at 46% ABV.
Expect a animated sweet sherry and malt nose, and a bright, crisp palate of more sherried fruit characters, a touch of vanilla, barley sweetness. The finish is long with great intense sherried fruit sweetness.
700ml, 60.2% ABV.
