The Lakes Distillery has announced the release of its latest single malt whisky.
The distillery, at Setmurthy, near Bassenthwaite Lake, has released The Whiskymaker’s Reserve No.4 is matured in Oloroso, PX and red wine casks, comprising Spanish, American and French oak.
At 52 per cent ABV and bottled at natural colour, it possesses the same sherry-led, wood-forward and flavour-packed characteristics of previous releases, the distillery said.
Dhavall Gandhi, The Lakes Distillery’s whiskymaker, said: “From the American and Spanish oak casks, big notes of Manuka honey, sun-dried dates, and roasted cashew nuts lead to layers of dried fruit, nuts and spice, with an indulgent velvet-cream finish.
“One of our most complex yet approachable whiskies in the series to date, this is a well-balanced and contemplative whisky, ideal to enjoy after dinner or with good friends.”
