Influence Guide

These casks will be left with some of the sherry previously held absorbed into the pores of the wood lending the subsequent spirit a darker colour with a big sherry flavour. The end results vary depending on the variety of sherry cask used; for example Oloroso imparts rich and nutty notes whilst Pedro Ximenez would impart a more spicy/chocolate note.
