The Lakes Reserve No.3

We're onto the third release from The Lakes Distillery's Whiskymaker's Reserve series, which explores the art of blending and oak maturation! This English single malt was drawn from Oloroso, Pedro Ximénez and cream sherry casks, along with a small number of red wine casks in there too. As such, it's a super aromatic, incense-forward release, bottled up at a healthy 54% ABV.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Fragrant incense leaps from the glass, with dark chocolate biscuits and treacle tart.

Palate Warming oak spice leads into notes of golden syrup, chai spices and date.

Finish Honeyed fruit and cinnamon linger on a warming finish.

Reviews for The Lakes Whiskymaker's Reserve No.3
Lacks balance
It’s a well made spirit, no doubt about that. I just find the floral, incense notes a little too overpowering- lacks balance.

Very crowd pleasing jammy doughnut malt
Had a few of the lakes blends and malts now and they have come on leaps and bounds from the early releases which were not much to get excited about to be honest.This seems to fit in with the new house style very well, very fruit driven with aromatic spices and mellow oak. A sense of each oak finish having a well balanced influence here and great mouthfeel/body at 54%. Impressive bit of packaging as well as lovely liquid too.
