Lindores Abbey Distillery is rapidly becoming one of the most favored distilleries in Scotland.
The Casks of series consists of 3 different matured variants of this malt whisky. The first came from bourbon casks and the new (2nd) whisky from this series has matured in STR casks.
For those who are not (yet) familiar with this phenomenon, STR stands for Shaved, Toasted, Re-charred. In other words, these, originally wine barrels, have been shaved on the inside, Toasted and re-Charred. This revives the flavors and color of the wood back to life to ensure the whisky gains a lot of color, aroma and character.

Taste: first blackberries and gooseberries with menthol and mint. Then chocolate (ice cream) with honey and chocolate truffle with powdered sugar.
