Dartmoor Whisky Bordeaux Cask

70cl | 46%

We had the pleasure of meeting Greg Millar, founder and owner of Dartmoor Distillery recently when he indulged us in a tour and tasting of his newly launched Whiskies; Dartmoor Whisky Bordeaux Cask and Dartmoor Whisky Bourbon Cask. Situated in the historic Bovey Tracey town council building which dates back to the early 1800’s it is the perfect spot for his reconditioned copper still which Greg located in Cognac.

Process
When the barley is mature and golden, it is picked locally on Dartmoor and transported to Warminster Maltings to be malted. It is Britain’s oldest working malting house and employs traditional malting methods such as germination floors and good old fashioned manual labour to malt barley to the highest of standards.

Local cask ale makers create our beer wash according to the original formula that was provided by our master distiller, Frank McHardy. The primary distillation process takes place in their gorgeous copper still, which was imported from France’s Cognac area.

After that, the spirit is placed in barrels to mature. They diligently choose barrels from all around the world to ensure that each batch of their spirit has a remarkable and distinctive flavour.

Although there is no age statement on the Whiskies they are all around 3 ½ years in barrel but to taste them you would think they were older as they are all complex, smooth and extremely polished.

Tasting Note

The nose of Dartmoor Whisky Bordeaux Cask shows soft fruit and blackcurrant aromas with wine gum fruits, a hint of coconut and chocolate on the tongue.

It has a full body and leaves with a sweet yet floral finish.

Fancy their ex-bourbon cask instead?
