We can't actually ship The Lakes Whiskymaker's Reserve No. 2 to the United States at the moment (although we're working hard to fix that).

In the meantime, our friends over at The Whisky Shop might be able to help you out.

The Lakes Reserve No.2 Bottling Note

Behold, the second release from The Lakes Distillery's Whiskymaker's Reserve series! The single malt has been matured in a combo of Pedro Ximénez, red wine and bourbon casks, whereas the first Whiskymaker's release was only matured in red wine and Pedro Ximénez casks. Eventually, the English whisky was bottled at cask strength, a generous 60.9% ABV. The Whiskymaker’s Reserve is an artistic exploration of oak and blending, and you can expect big fruity flavours in this one.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Golden syrup, chocolate raisin and orange peel, with rich treacle aromas.

Palate: Lots of oak spice coming through, balanced by creamy vanilla and white chocolate, a hint of grass and oily malt.

Finish: Vanilla oak battles it out among prune and raisin, with a hint of praline on the finish.

Lakes Whiskymaker's Reserve No. 2 Reviews

Ach Laddie. English whiskey is coming home.

N: Rose petal polo mints.
P: Washy mouthfeel, bubbly, needs air to manage the cask strength, which in its initial blast is sherried before an overwhelming force of white pepper ginger.
A: Orange dark chocolate with pleasant sherbet brings down the curtain. No painful alcohol given the strength.

Made me gag, avoid big time!

Probably the most undrinkable whisky I have ever drank, and after trying this I don't think I will try any English whisky again, I'll stick to Scotch and Japanese!

Lakes has found the hen that lays the golden eggs! Dhuvall Ghandi is a bloody legend!! If this guy can make this I can’t imagine what happens when you give him time.

They've created a monster!

Wow - wasn't expecting that! Great balance. Fruit, spice, very subtle chocolate. Lovely stuff.

Strong powerful flavour yet not too harsh

Lovely strong but smooth to drink
Bought for special occasions but empty bottle in less than a month
Over 60% so be warned it has a lasting kick

How have they done it?

When whisky is a journey as it is for me this really is a stop I had to take a whole weekend enjoying. For a malt as young as this to be so complex is just crazy! How have they done it? Simply liquid Christmas cake in a glass! Can't wait for No3!!

So addictive - class A whisky heroin.

Bigger nose than the Life of Brian. Massive depth of flavour development for one so young - quality dried fruits, spices, restrained sherried loveliness, chocolate biscuit, subtle orange. Eclipses the No:1 owing to the longer finish that is as enjoyable as tasting it afresh - it's a non vicious circle. To sip, or not to sip....
