Abbey Whisky Daftmill Cask
All the casks we sampled on the day were tremendous, I could have chosen any of them but the cask that stood out was exceptional and fitted the profile we were looking for. Distilled on the 10th of December 2007, filled into single cask 043/2007, a first fill, ex-bourbon barrel from Heaven Hill distillery and matured for 12 years in cask. The result is divine, on the nose it gives a delicate yet complex hit of flavours, exactly what you’d want and expect from a beautiful Lowland whisky, delicate cereals, lemon sherbet bon bons, honey, ripe melon, hints of eucalyptus, limoncello, apples, pears, spiced peaches. So defined, so clear and so crisp in flavour. Mint, lychee and gooseberries…. I could go on all day. The palate has cinnamon, toffee, honey, orange bitters, nib of chocolate, lychee, boiled sweets, sweet pears. Spice. Heavenly…
Daftmill Whisky, when available, can be purchased via our distributor Berry Bros. & Rudd and most good whisky shops.
