    official information:
    The Whiskymaker’s Editions are exceptional diversions from our sherry-led house style; one-off releases showcasing the sense of adventure of our whiskymaker – Dhavall Gandhi – in cask selection, maturation and blending. Each Edition is an expression of creative freedom; the product of a playground where instinct, experience and inspiration roam free, coming together to realise our intrinsic objective – the creation of outstanding flavours. 

    Colheita (Col-yate-a) means “harvest”, referring to the exclusive use of grapes from a single crop to create a vintage Tawny Port. In this Edition, the whiskymaker’s cask and maturation expertise brings Colheita Port into the frame, in combination with a small proportion of bourbon barrels. 

    The nose is vibrant and fruity with hints of plums, spiced pickled cherries and candied orange; the palate is complex with notes of prunes, stewed plums and warming cinnamon with a lasting finish.

    Enjoy as you please. Try adding a few drops of water to open up the flavours.

    This Whiskymaker's Edition Colheita is pretty young. And there is a lot of alcohol. But there is also a lot of aroma and taste. The port cask is not too dominant.

    This scotch needs some air to breathe and some water to bring down the alcohol. But then it is really delicious. I am very curious about the future expressions of The Lakes Disty. with more maturation. Expectations are high.
