|Number of Bottles
Harvested from the farm’s Dam Park and Curling Pond fields on the 31st August 2004, the Chariot barley was among the last to be malted in Fife by Robert Kilgour & Co. before they closed.
The twenty eight casks in this bottling are all first fill ex bourbon barrels distilled in 2006 and bottled in 2022 at natural cask strength.
Nose: there’s an immediate level of maturity present here. Typical Daftmill characteristics of grassy sweetness and orchard fruits have concentrated down into notes of barley sugars, light waxes, mineral oils and shoe polish. There’s also custard sweetness, green apple and some slightly farmy hints of cider. With water, the freshness breaks out very strongly. Lots of thick cereal tones, fresh butter, grass, hay and lemon verbena.
Palate: intricate malty sweetness, biscuity richness, lemon barley water, some green herbal teas, bergamot, lemon rind and olive oil. With water, once again it is about freshness, but here it is shows as spearmint, pollens, flower nectars, vase water and grassy rapeseed oil.
Finish: medium and showing once again a soft, slightly dusty waxiness, gently warming peppery tones and soft notes of dried flowers and freshly milled grist.
Daftmill Whisky, when available, can be purchased via our distributor Berry Bros. & Rudd and most good whisky shops.
