A Peated Delight Matured in S.T.R. and French Red Wine Casks

Nestled in the quaint town of Annan in the southwest of Scotland, the Annandale Distillery carries a rich history dating back to its original establishment in 1836. Having undergone a complete refurbishment in 2011, the distillery resumed production of whisky in 2014 under the ownership of Prof. Dr. David Thompson and his wife, Teresa. With meticulous attention to detail, they have revived the distillery's legacy, offering an array of exquisite expressions. Among them is the Annandale Man O' Sword Founders' Selection Cask 370, a peated lowland whisky aged in S.T.R. and ex-French red wine casks. In this article, we delve into the tasting notes and explore the story behind this exceptional single cask bottling.

Tasting Notes:
The Annandale Man O' Sword Founders' Selection Cask 370 unveils a captivating array of flavors that exemplify the unique character of this peated lowland whisky.

Elevated peat smoke rises from the glass, entwined with nuances of tobacco smoke and smoked bacon. The aromatic experience is further complemented by delightful notes of coconut, almonds, and cherries, creating a symphony of enticing scents.

Upon the first sip, a peat explosion delights the palate, accompanied by earthy undertones and the freshness of green leaves. Creamy vanilla and ripe peach add a touch of sweetness, balancing the smoky intensity and creating a harmonious flavor profile.

The finale of this exceptional whisky is marked by a gentle pinch of black pepper, adding a subtle spice that lingers on the taste buds.
