Created from a blend of three malted grains: a barley base enriched with the addition of locally grown rye and wheat. This differs from previous Puni releases being matured for two years in first-fill Bourbon barrels, then finished for another two years in x Pedro Ximénez Sherry casks from Spain. “Sole” means “sun” in Italian, referencing the Sherry production process whereby PX grapes are dried under the sun, concentrating their sugars. The wine from these grapes is then barrel aged for many years via a method known as a Solera.
This whisky was matured in our above-ground warehouses, where the climatic differences between summer and winter have the biggest impact and accelerate the natural maturation rate. During its maturation period GOLD develops an exquisite & mellow flavour profile, defined by a rich sweetness. A harmonious marriage of summer fruits and sweet vanilla, completed by a beautiful touch of spicy oak. www.whiskymag.com
