Here it is! Our first ever Sherry-matured single malt. This single malt spirit is not merely 'finished' in Sherry casks but is matured from start to finish in a combination of Oloroso and Pedro Ximenes STR casks. STR stands for Shave Toast Rechar as developed by the late great Dr. Jim Swan. It made our Mac na Braiche and Invermallie STR the huge successes that they are. Now, thanks to our Spanish cooperage in Jerez, we have Sherry STR barriques (225L) that infuse robust oak notes, better oxygenation, and charcoal filtering to round off the massive Sherry-bomb notes one expects from Oloroso and PX matured single malts.

The classic single malt spirit underpinning this Searaidh Braiche spirit won gold at the 2019 World Whiskies Awards for best newmake in Canada and top 2 in the World. The Searaidh Braiche also won a gold medal in the 2021 John Barleycorn Awards.

Tasting Notes: This classic sherried single malt spirit has a rich body and creamy mouthfeel. The plums, raisins, tropical fruit and wood spices are complemented by structured tannins and oak, that ultimately yield to a background of juicy malt barley. The finish and development are complex with a hint of sea salt and symphony of sherry and tropical fruit notes.
