Malts of wide varying character, but typical of mainland Scottish style whiskies
Release NO. 21
A sturdy dram braced with the fresh oak of new barrel aging brings a complex series of sensations. Nimble and bold to challenge your restraint.
The introduction is brash, tingling with mineral and spearmint effervescence over notes of wet hay and malt. A creamy soft entry delays the edgy touches of tannic oak, dry and sturdy. Hints of mandarin and mango are present before a toffee tinted flourish lingers to a drying finish.
Release NO. 16
This dram provides a battle of the senses, prickling aromas, honeyed sweet malt, accentuated oak and spice, all a palate teasing clash.
Bristling wafts shield the spirit’s malty depths. The defence is a facade, the juicy dram, mellow with spiced honey, flows smoothly onto the palate. The fringes grow a reviving warmth, oak and white pepper, that ends just as quickly, quietly reminiscing the previous moments’ sensations.
Release NO. 13
Careful aging provides complex flavour development in a light bodied malt. Easy drinking with plenty of engaging accents along the way. Delightful!
The vibrant nose is a dusting of nutmeg over nuts and dried apricot. The light bodied entry moves easily to an indulgent mid-palate of silky nugat. Sugaried dried fruit and cracked black pepper. Sweetened granola grains join at the finish all lingering for an extended contemplation.
Release NO. 10 – CASK STRENGTH
The Brewers first Cask Strength release displays bright and elegant character that belies its strength.
A sample drawn direct from the cask displays rich colour and an edgy vibrant nose. It quickly warms the palate chased with notes of tropical fruit in salted caramel cream. The spirit barely rests on the tongue, bright and flighty, the finish tingling in the upper reaches of the palate.
Release NO. 6
The flavours develop quietly, gently building on the depth of sweet charm this blend carries. Brewers’ wort bears fruit in this malt.
Round earthy tones, wet cedar and leather hide under the initial bristly nose. The restrained entry is soft and coating, sweet like wort from the mash trickling over the palate. Its robust nature finally blossoms off the tongue with notes of sweet figs and fresh oak trailing into the lingering finish.
Release NO. 1
A vibrant, complex nose of oak with malt depth frames the rich, layered fruit and honey body of this Premium Charter release.
A complex, bright nose with fresh melons, honey and cream overlay deeper malt tones mingled with ample astringent oak character. A bright, clean entry unfolds into fireweed honey, cinnamon and stone fruit, and a gentle flourish of spice and cedar lingers nicely.
