The Eden Mill Single Malt 2018 Release is the first in an annual series which will build over the coming years. Eden Mill thought it was only appropriate to release this whisky on St Andrews Day.
The 2018 Release represents the ultimate blend of some of the best 'honey' casks their distilling team have chosen.
The golden-amber expression comes from a mix of golden promise and propino barley strains and represents the ultimate blend of some of the best ‘honey’ casks Eden Mill’s distilling team have chosen. Young casks have been selected, varying in both size and style including, four of the finest Olorosso Sherry hogsheads, four outstanding ex-bourbon first fill American standard barrels and a few exceptional octave barrels which previously held Pedro Ximinez sherry.
There will be only 3,200 bottles of this special liquid bottled.
Delicate on the nose, with a light, straw-like character alongside a soft, vanilla / candied barley-sugar sweetness and a hint of hazelnut. The palate is sweet and juicy, with notes of peach and plum. Sherry influence is most noticeable here, with a light, fruitcake character along with sweet, oaky-vanilla. The finish remains light, with a candied sweetness, yet bringing in a delicate spice and hints of dried plum / raisin.
