London-based whiskey maker Berry Bros & Rudd has announced the launch of the Royal Brackla 2007 PX Finish Cask, a limited edition scotch whiskey bottled specifically for upcoming Christmas celebrations. The company will only produce 539 bottles of the new Scotch, making it a desirable collector's item for fans of the brand.
The new single malt was aged 12 years in refill hogsheads before resting for an additional two in new Pedro Ximenez Sherry butts. As a result, the whiskey presents a distinct taste with dried fruit richness and tannin flavors while delivering a palate influenced by Sherry wood. Tasting notes are said to include prunes, toffee, honeycomb, apples, melon, pears, and dates.
The 14-year-old Scotch whiskey is bottled at 50.6% ABV and will be available for customers at major alcohol retailers in the U.K.
