Shetland Reel - Up Helly Aa (50cl, 57%)
Navy strength 57% (ABV) 100° proof.
Up Helly Aa 2019 is the 4th expression in the Up Helly Aa series from Shetland Reel. Up Helly Aa 2019 is a blend of 4 different casks that have all previously contained whiskies from some of the most prestigious distilleries in Scotland (Aberlour, Glenlivet, Glen Garioch). Ocean Sent gin was filled into the casks at 60% and is aged for up to three months before being bottled and hand sealed with red wax.
Tasting Notes: Juniper and citrus from the gin followed by rich sweetness from the sherry casks on the nose – subtle oak flavours but still maintains a freshness from the gin.
Delicate sweetness and wood notes followed by a bold juniper and gentle warmth from the spice. Tonic lets more citrus flavours come through and lifts the subtle whisky flavours to make a refreshing G&T.
