Wine Enthusiast 91 points - Sippable and smooth, this IPA-finished Scotch is bright and bursting with fruit. The first sips bring apples and hints of tropical fruit, which lead into a zingy grapefruit peel finish laced with warming vanilla and nutmeg..Kara Newman, December/2017
The Experimental Series embodies our family philosophy of freedom and possibilities, to create a range of ground-breaking single malts.
This year sees the release of our first pioneering expression in the series: The India Pale Ale Experiment. In collaboration with India Pale Ale expert, Seb Jones, we created an innovative new craft ale to finish our groundbreaking single malt.
In our first groundbreaking experiment, Malt Master Brian Kinsman has proven that traditional whisky casks can still be seasoned in a pioneering way. Collaborating with a local Speyside craft brewer, Brian created a bold and zesty India Pale Ale beer to imbue our rich oak casks with extra hoppy notes. The experiment resulted in the first single malt Scotch whisky ever finished in craft India Pale Ale casks.
Finished in bespoke craft India Pale Ale barrels, our pioneering new malt is imbued with unique zesty citrus notes and the subtle tang of fresh hops. The flavor comes with carefully hand selecting the right malt whiskies to complement the extra hoppy notes.
