The Lakes Whiskymaker’s Edition Colheita
Behold, the first exciting release in the The Lakes Whiskymaker’s Editions series! It’s called Colheita (pronounced ‘col-yate-a’) which means ‘harvest’ in Portuguese, and is also a type of Port. You can probably see where this is going – alongside a small proportion of bourbon barrels, casks which previously held Colheita Port have been used to mature this single malt. Something a little different from the sherry fans over at The Lakes!
Nose: Lots of red fruit, with spiced plum, forest berries and oily orange peel.
Palate: More of those plums on the palate, leading into dried fruit, fig and sweet oak spice.
Finish: A creamy finish with a suggestion of vanilla alongside cinnamon.
