"The Whiskymaker's Reserve No.6 has to be my favourite expression. As someone who is a massive fan of sherried whiskies, in my opinion, sherry cask whisky doesn't get better than this."

"Deep and rich. It gives the impression of a sherry bomb to start but quickly expands to other realms. The first two releases from this series are my favorites from the distillery, this is right up there."

“Bold, rich, worth savouring; big flavours and undeniably tasty.”

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.
