The Lakes Single Malt Whiskymaker’s Reserve No.1, bottled at cask strength (60.6% ABV) to ensure maximum flavour, is a full-bodied expression, matured principally in finest, meticulously sourced PX and red wine oak casks, comprising American, Spanish and French oak. Non-chill filtered and bottled at natural colour. Each bottle of The Whiskymaker's Reserve No.1 is individually numbered.
The nose is rich and vibrant with vanilla, chocolate and wood spice, layers of dry fruits, ginger and orange on the palate and a long, warming finish.
The Whiskymaker’s Reserve is an artistic exploration of oak and blending; of flavour evolution and defining a house style. Creating a new whisky requires a framework of sorts, but there has to be room within it to play, to follow gut feeling and instinct. The architecture of each release of Whiskymaker’s Reserve will evolve in keeping with both our increasing sherry cask influence and our sense of adventure.
Enjoy as you please. As this bottling is at cask strength, we recommend adding a few drops of water to venture further into the flavour depths.
