Annandale Man O'Sword 2017 STR Cask 375

From Master of Malt

2017 vintage single malt whisky from the Annandale Distillery, released under the Man O’Sword name, meaning this is a peaty number. Matured in a single shaved, toasted, and re-charred cask that previously held red wine, and bottled up at 60.5% ABV in 2022.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Charred marzipan, nutty praline, pipe tobacco, and plenty of peat smoke.

Palate: Charred oak and hints of summer fruits lead to vegetal smoke, with wafts of vanilla and coconut flakes.

Finish: Fiery ginger arrives, warming things up while vanilla and plums balance vegetal barley.

Whisky Resource Note:

While we have provided a link to the Annandale Distillery page for a related bottle to this one, we have used the tasting notes from Master of Malt as there were some inaccuracies/contradictions found on the Annandale page with reference to the cask number.
