Part of The One range by The Lakes Distillery, this Port Cask Finish is all about showcasing the role of innovative cask seasoning. Using a select blend of both grain and malt whiskies, from Speyside and Islay to The Lakes Single Malt, this has been finished in first-fill Tawny and Ruby Port casks. This is free from chill filtration, and shows the natural colours derived from its oak casks. Bottled at 46.6% abv, this is an interesting elevation in flavour for a blended whisky.
Fresh cherries, toasted oak, and ginger lead on the nose. Stewed orchard fruits, fresh rose petals and decadently smooth chocolate combine on the palate. The finish is rich, lingering, and unexpectedly spicy.
