WITNESSES REPORTED THAT A PURE MALT SPIRIT WAS ABDUCTED FROM SCOTLAND TO JEREZ DE LA FRONTERA IN SPAIN, TO BE AGED IN TWELVE RARE OLOROSO, AMONTILLADO AND PEDRO XIMENEZ SHERRY OAK CASKS.
The Scottish spirit was then transformed into an altered state, thanks to the traditional system of “criaderas and soleras”, a means of aging and blending used to make sherries. Experts think that the oak casks used to transform the spirit must have contained out-of-this-world sherries. Indeed, according to a renowned specialist, the unearthly taste of the whisky itself probably comes from the combination of the three different types of sherry cask. He also points out that being aged in the mysterious Sherry Triangle influences its stellar properties. The complex personality and unusual depth of this whisky lend it an alien identity in the wider whisky community.
