Kingsbarns Balcomie is a fruity, light and balanced whisky bottled from ex-Oloroso American Oak Sherry Butts.
This Single Malt from the family owned distillery in the Kingdom of Fife has been distilled using Fife barley and matured in 100% ex-Oloroso American Oak Sherry Butts from Jerez previously used for maturing Sherry. These casks were specifically chosen by Isabella Wemyss for their gentle oak flavours and sherry rich sweetness to compliment the fruit character of the Kingsbarns spirit. The perfect balance between the spirit and the wood.
