The Lakes Single Malt Whisky Whiskymaker’s Reserve No.2 is an intense and robust expression, bottled at cask strength (60.9% ABV) and matured in the finest, meticulously sourced PX, red wine and bourbon casks. Non-chill filtered and bottled at natural colour.
The nose is rich and complex with dry fruits and treacle, creamy layers of wood spice and comforting vanilla on the palate and a long, luxurious 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 release is bottled at cask strength, we recommend adding a few drops of water to venture further into the flavour depths.
