The Lakes Whiskymaker’s Reserve Single Malt No.5 70cl 52% ABV
The Lakes Whiskymaker’s Reserve Single Malt No.5
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 Reserve Single Malt No.5 is matured in the finest, bespoke Oloroso, PX, and red wine casks, comprising Spanish and American oak, The Whiskymaker’s Reserve No.5 is an elegant and Moorish evolution, possessing the same sherry-led, wood-forward characteristics as its predecessors. Wonderfully fruity aromatics lead to indulgent baklava and a vibrant, creamy finish. Enjoy as you please. Try adding a few drops of water to open up the flavours.
The Whiskymaker’s Reserve is an artistic exploration of The Lakes’ sherry-led house style. The whiskymaker defines the architecture of each release as he unlocks infinite variables and never-ending flavour possibilities.
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 of 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, our whiskymaker Dhavall Gandhi is actively involved at every stage. It is holistic whisky making.
