The Lakes Whiskymaker’s Editions Sequoia.
The Lakes Distillery have in recent years released single malt whiskies in two series: “The Editions” and “The Whiskymaker’s Reserve”. The “Whiskymaker’s Reserve” series is the heart and core of the whisky production at the distillery with a heavy sherry influence, whilst the “Editions” have been released to demonstrate the capability of the distillery to explore the artistic nature of the whisky making and blending process.
The Lakes Whiskymaker’s Editions Sequoia is a bold, expansive, balanced and multi-dimensional single malt. Sequoia is inspired by the iconic ever-changing landscape in North California’s renowned wine country, that never fails to surprise and reward the curious adventurer. Heavily influenced by a diverse combination of cask types, it is by exploring the subtleties of flavour through blending that Sequoia paints a very different picture to most red wine influenced whiskies with complex layers and intrigue, ripe for exploration. Redcurrants take the lead, stridently setting out for spiced chocolate, taking in red grapes and dried fruits, with pleasingly indulgent butterscotch, fig and cinnamon diversions along the way. Enjoy as you please. Try adding a few drops of water to open up the flavours.
Exceptional diversions from The Lakes sherry-led house style, The Whiskymaker’s Editions are special-edition single malt whiskies which showcase whiskymaker Dhavall Gandhi’s sense of adventure in cask selection, maturation, and blending. Each unique bottling is an expression of creative freedom, the product of a playground where instinct, experience and inspiration roam free, coming together to realise one intrinsic objective; the creation of outstanding flavours.
The Lakes practises holistic whisky making, with the whiskymaker at the helm throughout the journey through the distillery and beyond. His single-minded focus at every stage provides continuity of character; their assurance that every flavour possibility is achieved.
That idea if distilling being distinct individual elements is not how a whiskymaker looks at the art. Rather it is part of a continuum, a net of possibilities where everything is interlinked. Change one element and the effect will change everything else. Only by understanding how flavours are created throughout the journey through the distillery will the whiskymaker fully comprehend the possibilities. That is why at The Lakes, unusually, their whiskymaker Dhavall Gandhi is actively involved in every stage. It is Holistic whisky making.
Only 1,300 bottles of The Lakes Whiskymaker’s Editions Sequoia were released on 15th October, at 53% ABV with a further 3,000 bottles available internationally.
