Daftmill 2009 Summer Batch Release 2020 700ml


Daftmill 2009 Summer Batch Release 700ml

Daftmill is a farm distillery, owned and run by the Cuthbert family, who grow all of the barley used in their whisky on-site. The distillery is only operational during the farm's quiet periods in mid-summer and mid-winter, sometimes producing as few as 100 casks per year. The distillery was granted its license in 2005, but not in a hurry to rush out its product, it was 2018 before its inaugural release. This patience and dedication to their craft have won the distillery an army of passionate fans, among collectors and connoisseurs alike.

This right here is the 2009 Summer Batch Release from Daftmill! It was made with Optic barley, distilled back in 2009 and left to age until it was eventually bottled in 2020. This edition was drawn from a combination of bourbon barrels and a first-fill Oloroso sherry butt, which produced 1,790 bottles.

Nose: Soft dried fruit sweetness, balanced by hints of lemon meringue pie, cigar box and cereal.
Palate: Caramelised nuts, cinnamon and cardamom spiciness, shortbread, subtly earthy barley leading into a touch of flinty mineral notes.
Finish: Pear drops, stem ginger, another helping of cinnamon and vanilla.

Alc: 46%
