The fourth release in The Whiskymaker’s Editions series, Bal Masque is a showcase of The Lakes Distillery’s sense of adventure.
Each one-off Edition is an expression of creative freedom, with an intrinsic objective to create outstanding flavours.
Complex and aromatic, Bal Masque bears the mystery and seduction of a masquerade ball. Flavours and aromas mingle like masked revellers with featherlight touches.
Paying homage to its risqué nature, this is not about playing safe and in transporting us to unchartered territories, the whiskymaker has masterfully conducted enigmatic French oak casks.
The most porous of all the grains, French oak is notoriously difficult to control but, with so many flavour compounds and tannins, creates a beautifully seductive, mysterious character.
With Bal Masque, forbidden orchard fruits entwine with sweet sensory spices, raisins, vanilla and nutmeg, and subtle background notes of toasted almonds and incense.
Non-chill filtered, bottled at the natural colour and 54% ABV.
