  1. Official tasting note

    Masthouse Column Malt is among Britain’s first single malt whisky to be distilled in a column still and is made in accordance with the Invicta Whisky Charter

    This whisky takes inspiration from the great Japanese and American distilleries and uses our unique column still to create a wonderfully smooth, easy drinking whisky where flavour characteristics blend in harmonious perfection

    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

    Vanilla mousse with candied zest, toffee apple and light oak shavings on the nose and, on the palate, lingering sweet cream with dried plantain, fresh cut pear and a nutty, peppery finish.

    100% Belgravia Barley grown at 40 Acre Field. Our mash undergoes a long fermentation before being pot distilled, then distilled again in our unique 10 meter tall column still. Finally it is aged in first fill American Oak Bourbon Barrels.

  2. Baanaanaabob scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Honey, toffee, vanilla, red berries, straightforward

  3. WhiskycenterUK scored this whisky 93 points Newbie

    This is a surprisingly magnificent whisky! New to the market but definitely one to keep your eye on. Smooth, warm, truly a very impressive new comer, and that from the UK. Give it a try, and thank me later :-)
