Dálvve Sherry Influence
With Sherry Influence, Dàlvve was enhanced with the rich flavours from Jerez. A deeper, darker whisky where the light smoky bourbon notes of Dàlvve join company with sherry matured casks.
Dálvve Sherry Influence shows off a slightly darker side of High Coast Single Malt Whisky. It is an elegant all-round whisky where just over half of the barrels have previously matured oloroso sherry. Both the bourbon and sherry casks are of the highest quality which give clear flavours with classic sherry notes, fruitiness, cereal, vanilla and a light honey finish. In addition, there is a touch of Ådalen smoke because a smaller proportion of our peated spirit was used when filling some of the sherry matured whisky. Dálvve Sherry Influence is a unique edition that will not be repeated. In total we produced 13 104 70 cl bottles and 1 500 75 cl bottles for the US market. Dálvve Sherry Influence was the first High Coast whisky to be sold in the United States.

Until October 2014, our casks have matured in a damp warehouse, where they lost slightly more alcohol than expected. Since October 2014 until bottling, the casks have been maturing in a dry environment in warehouse number 3. The sherry casks have been stored in warehouse 2 and therefore lost some alcohol strength.
23/09/2018 to 24/09/2018 7022 kilos of whisky, with an average strength of 62,1% abv, was emptied into our blending tank. There we added water to reach the desired strength of 48% abv.
Dálvve batch 7 – Sherry Influence was bottled between 25/09/2018 & 27/09/2018 giving us 1500 75cl bottles and 13104 70cl bottkes.
We recommend that Dálvve Sherry Influence is allowed to air in the glass for a while to fully enjoy it. Add a few drops of water to lift the aromas from the glass.
