Lakes Single Malt Whiskymakers Reserve #3 is a combination of Spanish, French and American oak casks filled with a combination of PX, Oloroso, Cream Sherry and red wines casks to produce a robust, yet balanced whisky.
Bottled at 54% ABV, non chill-filtered and natural colour.
The nose is rich and fragrant with incense, spiced chocolate and toffee; layers of honey, figs and wood spice on the palate create 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 release is bottled at cask strength, we recommend adding a few drops of water to open up the flavours.
