Fable Blended Malt Batch 1
You Save: £4.00
Fable is an independent bottler that was founded by a pair of drinks industry veterans: Calum Lawrie and Andrew Torrance. Their focus was on sourcing brilliant whiskies from all over Scotland, of course, but while also shining a light on lesser-known stories and myths of Scotland with a whisky association. As well as bottling the whisky, here with batch one of its Blended Malt, Fable has tried its hand at blending.
It’s all about gothic illustrations at Fable, and in its previous releases Blair Athol was represented by a crow, Mannochmore by a hound, and Dailuaine the moon – all of which, if you could see the full bottle, you’d notice appear on the graphic label of this blended malt! We do know for sure that it spent seven years in ex-bourbon barrels and hogshead casks, bottled up on 17 January 2022 with just 3,000 limited bottles released into the world. It’s a gloriously spicy whisky, with lots of sweet malt and creaminess too.
White pepper is tempered by golden syrup, and cinnamon-spiced apple loaf cake.
Runny honey and honeycomb, fresh pastry, cinnamon sugar, and peppery oak.
A creamy finish, bolstered by drying oak spice, and festive nutmeg.
