Distillery tasting notes
Sam Lowe, Co-Owner & Head Distiller at Kinglake Distillery says:
“There is an underlying soft sweetness and vanilla from the ex-bourbon foundation, overlaid with a more robust over-tone. The Kinglake DNA thus clearly remains but the mulberry wood has replaced the background peat notes, usually clear in our spirit, creating a profile I find more savoury and harder to define. A whisky to mull over!”
Whisky in Isolation tasting notes
Nose: Orchard fruits, shortbread, sourdough, honey & varnished wood
Palate: Pears soaked in jasmine liqueur, sugary confectionary sweetness & baking spice hints of nutmeg and cloves; all integrated with gentle peat smokiness.
Finish: Oolong tea, runny honey and floral notes of lily of the valley and sandalwood
