Maverick Drinks has expanded its range of Sherry cask-finished Darkness! Scotch whiskies

All of the new expressions created by the UK drinks distributor further mature whisky from some of Scotland’s most renowned distilleries in first-fill, 50-litre Sherry casks, offering a “greater surface area to volume ratio”.

The Darkness! Invergordon 23 Year Old Pedro Ximénez & Oloroso Hybrid Cask Finish (£76.95) is finished in a cask made up of staves from ex-Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso casks.

Darkness! Ben Nevis 17 Year Old Palo Cortado Cask Finish (£66.95) is said to be the first Scotch whisky to be finished in a specially built 50-litre cask that previous held Palo Cortado Sherry.

Darkness! Tobermory 17 Year Old Oloroso Cask Finish (£57.95) is described as “rich and nutty”, while Darkness! Tobermory Heavily Peated 16 Year Old Oloroso Cask Finish (£71.95) boasts “lip-smacking fruit notes”.

Two more Sherry-cask finished Bruichladdich Scotch whiskies make up the new additions to the range, one aged in Oloroso Sherry casks (£81.95) and another in PX casks (£74.95).

All have been bottled between 49% and 60% abv. The Darkness! range was first released in May last year.
