The Cask Trials

Distilled in 1968 and matured for 53 years in a single sherry butt, this remarkable Sherry Cask Single Grain Whisky showcases the potential of grain to achieve great complexity and depth of character when given time and care.

The Finer Details

This is an incredibly rare Sherry Cask Single Grain Whisky crafted from an unlikely marriage of European oak and Girvan grain. With a deep and intense character drawn from 53 years in best quality European oak this is today almost unrecognisable as grain whisky but with a delicious underlying richness that reveals its roots. 

  • Matured for over half a century in a single Sherry Cask.
  • Offered at a natural cask strength.
  • Free from added colour.
  • Non-chill filtered.
  • Packaged in a hand-engraved, individually numbered decanter with ash display box featuring gold leaf inlay.


Rich, decadent and intense with a resinous quality and dried fruits on the nose. 


Roasted coffee and Muscovado toffee notes follow on the palate. An exceptional, highly unusual release with a character reminiscent of greatly aged malt whisky.

  • Dried fruits

  • Roasted coffee

  • Toffee

  • Dark berries
