Defilement Chestnut 8yo Bottling Note

This right here is an 8 year old whisky released as part of the Defilement series, which has been finished in a new, charred octave cask made from chestnut wood. You'll note that we simply said "whisky". Y'see, certain regulations state that a certain famous style of whisky from a certain location known for the spirit can only be aged in oak, which chestnut wood is not. Hence, "whisky". That doesn't stop it from being a cracking whisky, mind! The chestnut wood imparts some different notes than you would find in whiskies drawn from traditional oak casks, making this a particularly intriguing sip.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Petrichor richness blends with drying woody notes, alongside a touch of fragrant lavender.

Palate: Dried fruit notes begin to take shape on the palate, with sultana and raisin at the fore. A clean, vegetal hint of eucalyptus develops, with continued woody hints.

Finish: Freshly cut timber and a touch of brown sugar sweetness.

Overall: A unique expression, with the chestnut wood introducing its own individual style to the flavour profile.
