Whiskymaker's Reserve No.6 Tasting Notes

Official tasting notes

Nose: Rich and aromatic with oriental spice, marzipan with rose water, candied ginger and polished oak.

Palate: Rich and mellow with sun-dried Ajwa dates, toasted teacake, and hints of gentle spice.

Finish: Rich and complex with lingering spice.

Ed's review

Colour: Natural colour. Deep bronze, mahogany. Oily in my glass, with legs that develop slowly.

Nose: Deep, rich, heavily sherried fruits - raisins, plumbs, macerated berries. Soft, crumbly, muscovado sugar. Jamaica ginger cake and spiced apple compote. Alcohol is well integrated.

Palate: Medium mouthfeel. More rich red fruit with redcurrants, blackcurrants and raisins. Dark malt loaf. Wood spices with cinnamon and cloves. A touch of dark chocolate, a suggestion of tobacco. Alcohol is again well integrated.

Finish: Long finish. Sherried fruits through oak to warming spice that leaves me ready for another sip.

About This Lakes Distillery release

Designing 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 Whiskymaker’s Reserve is an artistic exploration of maturation and blending. It evolves flavours and defines a sherry-led signature style for The Lakes Distillery.

Showcasing a sherry-led, wood-forward, and flavour-packed style, each release of The Whiskymaker’s Reserve has the same DNA. Varying in character, they continue to evolve in keeping with The Lakes sherry cask influence and sense of adventure.

Whiskymaker's Reserve 6 is the penultimate whisky in this series. It's a further evolution of The Lakes Distillery's single malt’s sherry-led signature style.

Matured in the finest Oloroso, PX and red wine casks, comprising Spanish and American oak, it is a complex and aromatic whisky. It retains the bold style The Whiskymaker’s Reserve series has become known for. But this release brings exotic spice and delicate fragrant characters to the fore.
