The Lakes Whiskymaker's Reserve No. 1. Image courtesy The Lakes Distillery.Dhavall Gandhi of The Lakes Distillery created this single malt from a combination of red wine and ex-Sherry casks made from American, Spanish, and French Oak. The nose has notes of dark fruits, Christmas cake, and orange marmalade, while the palate reinforces that with a jammy taste full of dark fruits and berries balanced by hints of clove, allspice, and orange peel. The finish is long with berry cobbler, soft spices, and hints of red grapes and brandy. (December, 2019)
