Lindores The Casks of Lindores STR Wine Cask Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
The second release in the "Casks of Lindores" series, created to showcase the award winning spirit of Lindores Abbey distillery and the three core cask types used to mature its flagship malt. This one's matured exclusively in STR (shaved, toasted & re-charred) red wine barriques. Our tiny sample suggested a youthful, zesty, full-flavoured dram defined by rich oak character, balanced by fresher orchard fruit notes through the finish - in particular ripe plums and pears. Straightforward but very tasty, it comes bottled at 49.4% vol. with zero chill filtration.
Notes from the producers... Nose: Mellow fruity apricot jam, toffee notes and a hint of cinnamon combined with butter and custard. Palate: Sweet and spices. Mellow plums and red berries, treacle, cinnamon spice and a pleasant woody smoky note. Very smooth, silky texture. Finish: Medium to long with spices, honey and caramel notes.
