The Lakes The ONE British Blended Whisky
The Lakes // Multiple Countries
The ONE Whisky is the first release from The Lakes Distillery, an English distillery in Cumbria, which is part of the Lake district. As they only started producing whisky in December 2014, and the ONE was released before their own stock was three years of age, this is a blended whisky crafted from whiskies from across the British Isles.
Peated BlendA mix of grains and malted barley. From more than one distillery. Dried with peat.
"A distinct sweet and grassy aroma profile, with hints of honey and banana custard, accompanied by a whisper of wood smoke in the background. The palate is young-ish with a mellow peat influence, breakfast cereals and a hint of blackcurrants and pepper. The spiciness and smoke linger for a little while. Proper balance, enough depth of flavor. Can't really fault this."
