Blended Scotch Whisky, Bottled 2016
Cadenhead Creations is a collection of blends, blended malts and blended grains specially selected to fit into one of four flavour profiles. Each cask is specially selected before marrying for a considerable time to ensure that each Creation is a unique offering. Cadenhead Creations are one off small batch offerings which can never be repeated.
This whisky in this blend was all distilled in 1980 and this bottling comes from a vatting of two sherry Butts of the blended whisky.
Nose: Strawberries; rich fruits; gooseberries; full fat cream; raisins; honey and cocktail cherries and obvious sherry notes.
Palate: Vanilla with a hint of toffee; raspberries; strawberry jam; soft spice and marzipan.
Finish: The soft spices continue with vanilla, cream and hazelnuts.
