The Whiskymaker’s Reserve No.3 is rich and fragrant single malt whisky, matured in the finest, meticulously sourced PX, Oloroso, Cream Sherry and red wine casks. Non-chill filtered and bottled at natural colour.
The Whiskymaker’s Reserve is an artistic exploration of oak and blending; of flavour evolution and defining a house style. Creating 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 architecture of each release of Whiskymaker’s Reserve will evolve in keeping with both their increasing sherry cask influence and their sense of adventure. In the perpetual whisky life-cycle of beginnings and blending, is it ever possible to perfectly fulfil ambition? The whiskymaker’s inner pursuit of perfection fuels an eternal drive to better himself. His holistic role, at the helm throughout the liquid’s journey through the distillery, unlocks infinite variables and never-ending flavour possibilities.
Creating a new whisky necessitates a framework being in place, but there has to be room within it to play, to follow gut feeling and instinct. There has to be a sense of adventure. That means not just creating flavour in the new make spirit, but opening up more flavour possibilities.
Dhavall knows each cask intimately; how the flavours are evolving and then how they can be blended with others to complement, enhance, deepen, broaden or contrast. They nudge against each other, some excited, some sulky, some diffident, the heavy and the light.
This is the art of blending – the same alchemy of perfumers who make new scents by creating a pyramid of aromas with base, middle and top notes. It is dynamic, it is creative, and expressive. It is also personal.
At the Lakes, blending is a creative expression of ideas, emotions and feelings through the language of whisky. It comes from the heart.
It takes time, so the final hand-selected casks are allowed to marry together for up to a year before bottling, significantly longer than any other whisky. This creates depth, roundness and harmony, the final touch which makes it The Lakes whisky.
