LAUDER’S SHERRY EDITION ~ SCOTLAND
82/100 Whisky Base
Lauder's Sherry Edition - Oloroso cask is the first expression from the Art of Blending series. Drawing its amber hue and sweet palate from its time maturing in seasoned Oloroso Sherry casks. The individual malt and grain whiskies which make up the blend are initially aged in charred bourbon casks. These are combined to form the blend and returned to Oloroso Sherry casks for further maturation.
Nose - Sponge cake with strawberry jam and cream, treacle tart and a crackle of exotic cooking spices.
Mouth - Vanilla-rich malt leads the way, with nods to cinnamon, cooked apple and heather along the way.
Finish - Lingering sweetness of crumbly fudge and fried banana.
Lauder’s Scotch whisky first appeared in 1834 in Glasgow, Scotland. The original blend was developed by Archibald Lauder, and it was awarded with several gold medals in international competitions - you can see these on the label. Lauder’s is a blend of Highland, Lowland, and Speyside malts, and the historic whisky has changed very little since its first expression in 1834. Lauder’s has been in continuous production since 1836, making it one of the oldest brands of Scotch whisky still in distribution.
