FLAVOUR HUNTERS FESTIVAL 2022

This exclusive range of ‘Rare Releases‘ were produced for our Flavour Hunters Festival in May 2022. Of the six bottlings, we have four being released in Mexico over the course of 2023. All the whiskies are single malts from an individual distillery, bottled at their natural strength and across a range of flavour profiles. We worked with a wide variety of cask types to nudge our recipes in the right direction and these small batch single malts are great examples of how that variety of wood types helps to give us an infinite number of flavours to play with. That could be in some examples by getting the full impact of one cask type, or in others by using a mix of bourbon and sherry wood to create something completely different. Characterful spirit and characterful casks make for an incredible combination and helps us to continue to expand our horizons.

Spirit Notes

A wonderful melange of aromas greeted the panel with fresh spring grass, flowering lilies, honeysuckle, melon and mango as well as buttered toast, sultanas, banana chips and golden syrup. On the palate neat a sweet, juicy, tropical fruit juice with coconut water at first appeared, to be followed by a peppery ginger spice note before ending in a delicious lime and thyme cake. After reduction we hung freshly washed linen on the line in a flowery meadow before we enjoyed banana bread, buttered oatcakes, cantaloupe melon and to drink, while some had a wheat beer others chose a peppermint tea before we all finished with a dessert wine.
