About Glasgow 1770 Manzanilla Sherry Cask (Unpeated) Single Malt Scotch Whisky

A five year old single cask release from The Glasgow Distillery utilising their unpeated double distilled single malt and maturing for five years and four months in a Manzanilla Sherry butt that previously held peated single malt whisky.

Expect notes of saline smoke, plum, dried apricots, and tropical papaya, leading to tobacco, dark chocolate, espresso, and chamomile.

Manzanilla sherry is a specific style of Fino sherry made in Spanish coastal town of Sanlucar de Barrameda and is famed for sherry maturation under a layer of yeast known as ‘flor’. The unique climate in this city; the elevation, the humidity, and the milder temperatures, allow for this flor to develop, offering floral notes of chamomile, almonds and honey into the sherry’s maturing in their bodegas.

Glasgow 1770 Single Malt Scotch Whisky, Manzanilla Cask Matured has been bottled at 59% ABV with only 813 bottles available from the single cask, number 18/218. The distillery’s fruity double distilled unpeated spirit was filled into the Manzanilla cask on the 12th of March 2018 and bottled on the 25th of July 2023.


Nose: On the nose notes of salinity, subtle smoke and dried apricots compliment toffee and a delicate floral honey sweetness.

Palate: The palate is rich and full bodied with notes of orange rind, tobacco and salted caramel alongside rich tropical papaya, mango, and plums, with hints of fresh ginger, floral honey and chamomile.

Finish: The finish is big and bold with notes of dark chocolate, apple, vanilla, espresso, and light peppery spice.
