High Coast Cinco 6 Year Old Whisky(50.5 % abv) 500 ml

$129.99

Cinco consists of 100% of unpeated whiskey matured in five different styles of sherry barrels; Palo Cortado, Pedro Ximénez, Amontillado, Oloroso and Fino. All included whisky has been matured in Bourbon barrels for between 2.66 and 5.64 years.

Ten of the 11 barrels are matured in Spanish oak. We added one cask of Pedro Ximénez that was matured in American oak to balance up the spicy flavours of the European oak with some sweeter notes.

Description

Nose: Whoa! This is nice. Must be the best “sherry nose” from High Coast so far – or indeed from any Swedish distillery. Deep and vibrant sherry notes, dried fruits galore. Also coffee and dark chocolate. Warm and comforting nose. A baseline of orchard fruits and mild spices. With time memories of white sugar sprinkled on the deep woods of northern Sweden. Even more time reveals more deep, earthy notes in the form of cinnamon stick, nutmeg and cocoa nibs. Looove the nose!

Taste: This is a whisky that makes itself known from the get go. Rich and bold in style. Spices and sugary notes up front. Then a wave of dried fruits, cinnamon and nuts.

Finish: Medium long finish. Deeper sweetness now. Fizzy ginger and cinnamon notes. A touch green in the end.
