The Whiskymaker’s Reserve No.3 is a rich and fragrant single malt whisky, matured in the finest, meticulously sourced PX, Oloroso, Cream Sherry and red wine casks.
Subtly distinct and unique, the third instalment of our journey to define a signature style follows two sold-out releases.
"Oloroso, Cream and PX casks were used in combination with a small number of red wine casks, to contrast some of the dried-fruit characters and create the aromatic top-note and seductive texture."
THE LAKES WHISKYMAKER
Introducing The Whiskymaker's Reserve
In the perpetual whisky life-cycle of beginnings and blending, is it ever possible to perfectly fulfil ambition? The whiskymaker’s inner pursuit of perfection fuels an eternal drive to better himself. His holistic role, at the helm throughout the liquid’s journey through the distillery, unlocks infinite variables and never-ending flavour possibilities.
The Whiskymaker’s Reserve is an artistic exploration of oak and blending; of flavour evolution and defining a house style. Creating a new whisky requires a framework of sorts, but there has to be room within it to play, to follow gut feeling and instinct. The architecture of each release of Whiskymaker’s Reserve will evolve in keeping with both our increasing sherry cask influence and our sense of adventure.

"Each element has a specific role to play and shows up on schedule to deliver exactly as it was intended, sip after sip. If whiskymaking is an art form, this is Precisionism."
