Bottled at cask strength and branded under the British proof system, the 105 is a ‘sherry bomb’! Originally bottled by George S Grant as a Christmas gift for family and friends it quickly gathered a following and soon became available to the public. The Grant family claim this to be the first commercially available cask strength single malt..
A slight salty note on the nose, common with cask strength whiskies is soon followed with all the rich stewed fruit notes from the sherry casks. Treacle toffee and gentle spices join in on the palate and come together for one intense and complex whisky. At this strength you are free to add water but we do not feel the need. This single malt is very soft right through to the finish despite its high strength.
