From one of the newer and more hard-to-find Scottish distilleries, this Daftmill release is one of two annual expressions from the craft Daftmill distillery in the Lowlands. Distilled between 14 February and 28 April 2008, matured in first-fill ex-bourbon barrels and bottled in 2020. 6,000 bottles were produced. Bottled at 46%.

Nose: A deep vanilla aroma reminiscent of crème brulee appear immediately, with some tinned peaches, dried cocoa powder and a delicate grassy note building.

Palate: Fresh fruit explodes on the palate with green apples, pears and some melon, developing into soft peach and a slight tropical note, there’s also a pleasant herbaceous almost earthy note on the mid-palate.

Finish: The oak appears again on the finish, offering vanilla pods, clove, cinnamon and some melted honey.

Located in the Howe of Fife in the Lowlands of Scotland, Daftmill is a farm distillery owned and operated by the Cuthbert family. The distillery only runs in the farm’s quiet periods; mid-summer and winter, sometimes producing as few as 100 casks per year. When not distilling, Francis Cuthbert looks after the estate, growing the malting barley used to make this whisky.
