My first foray into English whisky!
Well – not exactly.
The One is a blend using whisky from the 4 corners of Great Britain – as it exists at present – Scotland, England, Northern Ireland & Wales.
More of a British blend.
The standard expression – bottled at 40% as they all are – is aged in bourbon casks and delivers a perfectly fine tasting experience for a decent well rounded blended whisky.
The sherry finish adds a delicate sweetness to the mix.
Whilst the port finish delivers added body, depth & colour to my palate – as well as a more satisfying heavy mouthfeel.
The Lakes Distillery near Keswick in Cumbia have yet to release their own distillate – but I look forward to the day they do.
