Our whisky is batch made by hand with no computers, matured in fine casks, bottled on site using our own water and is non chill-filtered. We are really proud of these things and believe you will taste the difference too.
Why the Chapters? As a new distillery we wanted to offer our customers the opportunity to follow the production of a fine single malt whisky, peated and unpeated, from conception through to, well, indefinitely! For this reason we thought it would make easy reading to keep the development in chapters, so at various ages from 1 day old through to 40yr old we will give you the opportunity to taste how the whisky is maturing. Each new bottling will be a new chapter to the 'The Book'.
Small amount for release July 2011 more to follow in 2012. Sweet and creamy with hints of ginger biscuit, aniseed and white pepper.
Sweet and creamy aroma with hints of ginger biscuits, aniseed and white pepper. Also vanilla and pear drops along with the grappa nose.Creamy and clean barley at first, then the peat and pepper slowly build and fill every corner of the mouth, without overpowering. Ginger biscuits, lemon and lime followed by savoury dry peat and then more tropical fruits (pineapple, mango).
Fruitier than the cask strength on the long, soft finish, but still lightly peppered and citrusy on the sides of the tongue. Very mouth watering and the peat is more prominent than on the cask strength.
