The Baker Williams Distillery team are proud to release Lachlan III, just our 3rd barrel of whisky, aged in small format recoopered 100L ex-bourbon cask.
A full 3 years old, this malt driven whisky is a touch softer than previous releases, presumably a testament to the additional seasons that have crafted the spirit & directed it’s interaction in oak. Over this barrel's journey to the whisky before you, many a summers day has seen temperatures well into the 40°Cs, & substantial contrast of winter mornings well below zero; forcing spirit into the oak fibres on the heat & squeezing it back to the barrel in the subzero cold.
Burnished copper, auburn to chestnut in colour, substantial spice dominates the nose with elements of pepper & allspice, balanced with some sweet mandarin & cumquat citrus & apricot fruitiness alongside some caramel, toffee & cereal notes.
Big Malt, oak & a touch of liquorice with substantial alcohol on the cask strength tastings lend itself to a dash of water.
