The Lakes Distillery - The One - Sherry Cask Finished.
The One Collection is a range of fine blended whiskies showcasing the role of innovative cask seasoning in flavour elevation.
Principally matured in European oak Oloroso and PX casks, this is a deep, rich and intense whisky. Where, traditionally, the Distillery use American, French, and Spanish oak to create a timeless sherry-led whisky, with The One Sherry Cask Finished, it is the characters of Spanish wood which bring a new dimension to the flavour profile.
Softer and more porous, Spanish oak encourages a higher degree of interaction between spirit and cask. The more open grain allows the whisky to travel deeper into the wood, drawing out rich and intense flavours, as well as creating a beautiful and natural colour.
Heavily influenced by dark and sweet PX sherry casks, this is a decadent whisky, perfect after dinner or to relax and unwind.
A nose of Medjool dates, sun-dried raisins, sultanas and polished wood leads to Macadamia nuts, dark chocolate and gentle smoke on the palate of with a long, warming and rich finish.
Limited to only 4,512 bottles.
