Equipo Navazos 'La Bota de Grain Whisky 89' 700ml
Beginning as a Sherry appreciation group organised by wine writer Jesús Barquín and Valdespino director Eduardo Ojeda, Equipo Navazos has morphed into kind of micro-negociant (as well as now making their own wines), specialising in searching the south of Spain for unique single barrels of Sherry (along with brandy and whisky) and having them bottled in minute quantities.
La Bota de Grain Whisky 89 “Bota NO” is sourced solely from malted barley grown and distilled in Castilla la Vieja. Its age is estimated at around fourteen years of which the past seven have been spent in a single cask coming from a solera of very old dry oloroso sherry of excellent quality. It is actually a sister cask of the one that sourced our La Bota de Malt Whisky No. 66, only that a very fine Grain Whisky in this case. Such an extraordinary spirits that we could not skip the opportunity to bottle it.
Unrepeatable, of course, as a single cask release, this whisky is unchillfiltered and has—like all other bottlings from Equipo Navazos—no added aromatics, sweeteners or colorants. In fact, it has no additives at all.
