Daftmill 2009 Summer Batch UK Release 2020 Single Malt Whisky

This is the Limited Edition Summer 2020 release from Daftmill. Distilled in 2009 using Optic barley harvested from the farm's South fields in August 2006, then stored on the farm to be malted in Alloa in 2007. This first fill ex oloroso butt and four ex bourbon barrels that make up this bottling were distilled and filled in July and August 2009. This is their first release to contain whisky matured in both bourbon and sherry casks. Casks #021, #025, #032, #033 and #044.
Only 1,875 bottles released.

    Nose:    The nose is initially quite shy, and this dram benefits from a little breathing time in the glass, those with patience are rewarded with a harmoniously balance of fresh tropical fruit reminiscent of mango and cola cubes with thicker aromas of dried figs and cigar boxes.

    Taste:    Wonderfully spicey giving notes of clootie dumpling and lemon zest developing into something smoother with toffee notes and Fraserburgh butteries.

    Finish:    Exceptional with the ex-sherry casks really shining through and waves of fresh fiery gingerbread lingering.
