Daftmill Winter Batch Release 2008

Daftmill is a farm distillery, owned and operated by the Cuthbert family.
It only runs in the farm’s quiet periods; mid-summer and winter, sometimes producing as few as 100 casks per year.
When not distilling, Francis Cuthbert looks after the estate, growing the malting barley used to make this Lowland whisky.
The barley variety Optic was grown in the South fields and harvested in the last week of August 2006. It was then stored on the farm to be malted in Alloa during the summer of 2007.
Twenty-three first fill ex bourbon barrels were used to make up this batch.
They were filled between the 14th Feb 2008 and the 28th April 2008 before being left to mature in the upper level of warehouse no.1.
A Limited Edition of 6000 bottles.

Producer’s Tasting Notes

A deep vanilla aroma reminiscent of crème brulee appear immediately, with some tinned peaches, dried cocoa powder and a delicate grassy note building.

Fresh fruit explodes on the palate with green apples, pears and some melon, developing into soft peach and a slight tropical note, there’s also a pleasant herbaceous almost earthy note on the mid palate.

The oak appears again on the finish, offering vanilla pods, clove, cinnamon and some melted honey.

Only 1 per customer.
