Single Cask Club - Tasting Notes

September 2022

Month 10

The Royal Brackla repeat is quite an interesting one, such a difference yet they hold such strong similarities and that Orkneys Finest is lush and disappeared very quickly! This month is great to share something new and something a bit rare. Actually they’re both very interesting so a bumper month!  
Dram 1 - Lochlea Harvest Edition - First Crop
Many of you may of already tried a Lochlea which is great, here I feel they are really starting to set their mark with the type of whisky they want to be releasing and I’m looking forward in to the future to more of their seasonal releases to enjoy they flavor profiles they are building.

So here they’ve grown the barley on their farm, produced the spirit and aged it in a combination of Port pipes, ex-oloroso sherry cask and ex-bourbon wood to create this luxuriously Autumnal fruit/late summer fruit spirit. It leads with pear drops and stewed apples with balance coming in the form of the sweet barley back bone. The palate is instantly sweet barley and the summer fruits from the Port pipes comes through hand in hand with a soft spice. 

Lovely, we’re currently trying to get a few more bottles – if we do you guys will be the first to know. I think it would be good to get bottles into drams as well as the ballot so everyone is winning!

Dram 2 -Carn Mor Strictly Limited Glenallachie 2013
This Glenallachie distilled in 2013 and bottled in 2022 after its time in Oloroso Sherry Hogsheads is a stunner I think. 9 Years Old show that age really isn’t the leading factor is the quality of wood that really helps. It coats your month in glorious dried fruits with figs and muscovado sugar, soon follows but the remarkable Oloroso woodiness that bring great balance to the sweeter side of the dram. 

I think this one might disappear rather swiftly too so make sure you don’t miss out!
