Origin: Kentucky, USA Size: 700ML Strength: 95.6 Proof (47.8% ABV) State of Distillation / Aging: Matured in ex-bourbon barrels. Moved over to custom-made Oloroso sherry octave casks for three months. Non-chill filtered, and bottled without any additional coloring.
Candied orange peel, chocolate peanuts, and cooking spice warmth and some dried cherry notes.
Entry Amaretti biscuits, subtly toasty hints, powerful raisin and prune, just a touch of earthy oak lingers
Small casks make for a vastly increased surface area to volume ratio compared to the much larger sherry butts, leading to more cask influence and more of those intense sherried notes we've all come to know and love.
Darkness 8 Year Old is a continuous release from the range that was previously built around very limited edition bottling, though the name of the game hasn't changed - big ol' helpings of sherried deliciousness await you!
