Selected by Chairman and Master Blender Andrew Rankin, this Oloroso from a superlative Jerez bodega will provide the best sherry and wood quality for maturing Scotch Whisky. Due to its size (500L), a Sherry Butt does not mature in the same way as a barrel, and it is Andrew Rankin’s advice that it takes at least 12 years before its full potential is evident.
