The Lakes Single Malt, The Whiskymaker’s Edition, Bal Masque

The fourth release in The Whiskymaker’s Editions series, Bal Masque is a showcase of The Lakes Distillery’s sense of adventure.

To create a sense of intrigue and seduction, with Bal Masque the whiskymaker used only French oak to mature the whisky.

Working with French oak for primary maturation can be tricky in comparison to using American and Spanish oak, but the results can be quite fascinating.

When used exclusively, the abundance of tannins and wood extractives can create a beautifully seductive and mysterious character.

Non-chill filtered, bottled at the natural colour and 54% ABV

Producer’s Tasting Notes

Forbidden orchard fruits abound and entwine on the tongue with sweet sensory spices, raisins, vanilla and nutmeg, with subtle background notes of toasted almonds and incense.

Restricted to one per customer.
