About this Spencer Collings Whisky
A beautifully whisky from industry legend Mike Collings. This vatting includes secret Speyside and Islay single malt whiskies matured in refill sherry butts of approx 105 Imperial gallons. A Northern Highland component was matured in a second fill American oak Bourbon barrel of 50 US gallons. The Speyside & Islay whiskies were later transferred to first fill Madeira barriques for finishing, so essentially this is a three wood whisky: Madeira / Bourbon / Oloroso sherry.
