GlenWyvis Single Malt 2018 Batch 02/18
You Save: £6.00
It’s the first major bottling from GlenWyvis up in the Scottish Highlands! This is the second release from the distillery’s 2018 vintage, and was distilled entirely from local Concerto barley, fermented for an average of 96 hours (a combination of a long 115-hour and a short 70-hour fermentation). It was then filled into a combination of 23 casks: 60% first-fill ex-Tennessee whisky, 25% first-fill ex-oloroso sherry, and 15% refill hogshead casks, bringing a harmony of creamy sweetness, dried fruit, and spices, respectively. What’s more, not only is the distillery community-owned, found in the valley of Ben Wyvis mountain, but it’s also entirely self-sufficient, powered by its own wind turbine, hydro scheme, solar panels, and biomass boiler.
Ripe nectarine, lychee, and plum jam, with floral honey and berries.
Gentle pepper spice appears alongside oily citrus, banana ice cream, and buttery fudge.
Dusty cocoa is brightened by summer berries, and a pang of oak char.
