'...so wonderfully clean: obviously enormous work as gone into getting the cuts this on the mark'
'...a young malt from a brand new distillery already punching way above its weight age-wise and in terms of complexity'
Jim Murray's review of our inaugural 2014 release couldn't have been much better, so it's with huge pride that we proudly launch our 2015 single cask release.
Annandale's smooth peated spirit is distilled in twin copper pot spirit stills and Cask, Single Malt Scotch Whisky. Each bottle in this 2015 release is individually marked with cask and bottle number, and presented in a new and striking gift box.
Soft smoke at first, a mixture of log fire, toasted biscuit and Darjeeling tea. This gives way to a mixed tropical fruit flavour with nectarine, melon and mango. There is underlying creaminess with vanilla and honey with a note of burnt orange and resinous wood.
Long with sweet honey and vanilla with the return of the peat smoke and leather at the very end.
A well balanced, complex whisky with no one flavour dominating. The peat flavours of smoke, tea and toast are well matched with mixed tropical fruit and cream. This and the long, honeyed finish with a reminder of peaty smoke makes a great whisky for all occasions.
