Copperworks Single Malt Sherry Cask Release 33
This was Copperworks first release to fully capitalize on the flavors of whiskey matured in a sherry cask. Matured two different whiskeys for more than 30 months in a 500-liter fino sherry cask from Spain.
The complex blending and maturation process used for Release 033 produced a whiskey that goes well with cured ham, green olives, and cheese. It offers aromas of almond, fruitcake, rum raisins, and a whiff of linseed oil. The initial flavors of fig conserves, browned butter, and apple skin lead to a long finish of tobacco, citrus rind, balsamic vinegar, and tomato vine.
