Official tasting note:

Complex and aromatic, Bal Masque bears the mystery and seduction of a masquerade ball in its depths.

Flavours and aromas mingle like masked revellers with featherlight touches, coquettish flourishes and always the promise of more. Of being transported to unchartered territories beyond expectations.

The beauty of Bal Masque derives from the mercurial, not the obvious. With guile, wisdom, wit and panache, our whiskymaker has conducted enigmatic French oak casks to create a seductive, mysterious character.

Forbidden orchard fruits abound and entwine on the tongue with sweet sensory spices, raisins, vanilla and nutmeg, with subtle background notes of toasted almonds and incense.

To create a sense of intrigue and seduction, with Bal Masque we used only French oak to mature the whisky. Working with French oak for primary maturation can be tricky in comparison to using American and Spanish oak, but the results can be quite fascinating. When used exclusively, the abundance of tannins and wood extractives can create a beautifully seductive and mysterious character.

Non-chill filtered, bottled at the natural colour and 54% ABV, The Whiskymaker’s Editions - Bal Masque is available from specialist whisky stores throughout the UK.
