  1. Official tasting note

    official description:

    Made in accordance with the Invicta Whisky Charter® Masthouse Whisky is a rare single estate whisky which is natural, unfiltered and strikes the perfect balance of rich complexity and approachability.

    Masthouse Whisky is made with specially grown Kentish
    grain, and is a beguiling spirit inspired by the ancient craft of ship mast-making at Chatham’s Royal Dockyard, where it is distilled.

    500ml (45% ABV) £45.00

    TASTING NOTES:
    Green apple and ginger biscuit, tropical fruits and floral mid-notes, toasted oak, chocolate orange on the palate, finished with malt & white pepper

    WHAT’S INSIDE:
    100% Belgravia Barley grown at 40 Acre Field. Our mash undergoes a long fermentation before being pot distilled and then aged in a combination of first fill American Oak Bourbon and Virgin Oak Barrels.

  2. holborndrinker scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    A young whisky at a reasonable price, but it needs more time to sort out what it wants to be - reminded me more of a Nordic aquavits than of an English whisky. Perhaps it will improve once the cask has polished off the rough edges.

      Some fruit notes, but also some spice notes that I wouldn't normally associate with a whisky.
    • Taste
      79 79
      A slightly odd taste that reminds me more of aquavits than a whisky - needs more time for the wood to do its thing.
    • Finish
      79 79
      The spice lingers for a while although the bafflement lasted much longer.

    This is lovely! Hay, citrus, apples and a smooth, oily mouthfeel. Delicious.
