The Lakes Whiskymaker’s Editions – Sequoia, 53% abv
The Whiskymaker’s Editions series is a showcase of The Lakes Distillery’s sense of adventure. Each one-off Edition is an expression of creative freedom, with an intrinsic objective to create outstanding flavours.
A bold, expansive, balanced and multi-dimensional single malt, Sequoia is inspired by the iconic ever-changing landscape in North California’s renowned wine country, that never fails to surprise and reward the curious adventurer.
Heavily influenced by a diverse combination of cask types, it is by exploring the subtleties of flavour through blending that Sequoia paints a very different picture to most red wine influenced whiskies with complex layers and intrigue, ripe for exploration.
Redcurrants take the lead, stridently setting out for spiced chocolate, taking in red grapes and dried fruits, with pleasingly indulgent butterscotch, fig and cinnamon diversions along the way.
