About this deal

Kingsbarns Distillery Bottler Distillery Bottling Bottling serie Limited Release Vintage 2015 Bottled 04.

Wemyss was put on my radar thanks to my friend, Johnssen Li, who started importing in very small quantities a few years ago. Dream to Dram epitomised this and it's masterful illustration of the Lowland region has elegantly provided the foundation for Kingsbarns and malts to come; Doocot does not deviate from this but instead evolves the taste and texture into something new: a creamier, butter pastry-like evolution. Please note local Duties and Taxes may be charged by Customs in the destination country and the receiver is responsible for paying them.The nose is arguably more successful than the palate where the immaturity is unavoidable – and yet, as a whole, it’s far from unpleasant – and a spirit I’d happily take over a pile of ice on a hot summer’s day. We were fortunate to recently have had a virtual tasting session with Kingsbarns’ distillery manager, Peter Holroyd.

Visually attractive, Kingsbarns Dream to Dram Single Malt is medium straw with some golden reflections.KINGSBARNS DREAM TO DRAM is light, intensely fruity, floral and balanced, with a rich colour coming from the high quality casks it has matured in.

Whilst presently this doesn’t seem to present a major issue, with increasing competition (and supply), the newer distilleries are going to have to complete with each other on a more fundamental basis than simply being ‘new’ or the ‘first’.

Unless mandatory applicable law provides otherwise, your use of and membership to the Service are exclusively governed by Dutch law. Orchard fruits (apples and particularly pears – both tart and sharp), lemon peels alongside honey and toasted cask ends. But, at the same time, examined in isolation, this three year old whisky is exactly that – a three year old whisky.

To my mind, there’s a real danger that in less than a decade there’ll be a near ‘loch’ of young whisky – and a variety of repercussions to go along with this. After a meticulous distillation, this Single Malt Whisky was aged in STR casks (meaning shaved, toasted and re-charred) and in ex-Bourbon casks from the Heaven Hill distillery of Kentucky.It’s clean, refreshing and citrusy neat, so adding soda and fresh ice really opens up and enhances these attributes.
