The Whiskymaker's Editions
The Whiskymaker’s Editions is a series of one-off releases showcasing the sense of adventure of our whiskymaker. Each Edition is an exceptional diversion from The Lakes sherry-led house style; an expression of creative freedom, the product of a playground where instinct, experience and inspiration roam free.
Drawn from our whiskymaker’s collection of bespoke casks, the inaugural release of The Lakes Whiskymaker's Editions brings Colheita Port's influence into the frame.
In Portuguese, Colheita (Col-yate-a) means “harvest”, which in this instance is a supreme and exceptionally rare expression of aged Tawny Port made exclusively of grapes from a single vintage.
To demonstrate a different side of The Lakes Single Malt, The Whiskymaker’s Editions Colheita has been maturated in the finest American oak Colheita Port casks.
|Aroma||Santa Rosa plums, spiced pickled cherries, candied orange|

"Heady, dried red fruits. Floral, rose and rosehip syrup. Rich mouthfeel and medium-full bodied. Very drinkable, a good intensity of aromas and flavours.
“It's full and rich with a subtle bit of warmth that makes it an ideal comfort dram as the weather turns colder. A particularly good example of port matured whisky.”
