  1. praisethepasta scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    This ticks all the boxes of sherry cask maturation done right, but don’t expect a sherry bomb. This is rich, yet elegant, pleasant, balanced and incredibly morish. The branding might be a bit ‘posh’, but the quality of the whisky is there to match the presentation.

      Lush! Almonds going into soft marzipan, red apples, tarte tatin, sweet oranges, marmalade. More fruit from (starw)berry. Full on vanilla sticks / oil adding depth rather than sweetness, and underneath there’s a very subtle woodnote, bringing in a very, very gentle oaky bitterness to balance things out. Absolutely wonderful.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Fruity and full (apples and oranges) with a soft salinity and hints of wood. Raisins, milk chocolate and soft ginger adding some spice into the taste. All of this comes with a velvety, full and slightly sticky mouthfeel without every becoming overwhelmingly oily or syrupy
    • Finish
      85 85
      mellow and warm, drying on soft wood and gentle spices and pepper.

  8. ThorstenH scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Seems much more mature and older in direct comparison to the Reserve No5. The 46% fit very well. Soft and round, slightly fruity. Sherry.

      Apple, vanilla sugar, candied cherry, almond and a little banana.
    • Taste

      Apple, pecan, cherry, sugared almond and nutmeg. Slightly floral too.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Pecan, vanilla, apple, gingerbread and still that floral touch.

    • Nose
      Jamaica ginger cake. Sticky toffee pudding with dates. Dark treacle flapjack, sweet with that cereal coming through. Soft brown sugar, dark and moist. Gentle spices, cloves and cinnamon. 70% cacao dark chocolate.
    • Taste
      Medium mouthfeel. Sherry goodness. Dark red fruits - macerated blackcurrants and blackberries with stewed plums. More of that soft, sweet, gently spiced Jamaica ginger cake. Toasted malt loaf smothered with brown butter. Soft spices in the background.
    • Finish
      Medium to long finish. Orange peel. Fruit and nut dark chocolate. Gently warming, and inviting another sip.

  12. Official tasting note

    The Whiskymaker’s Editions is a series of one-off releases showcasing the sense of adventure of our whiskymaker.

    Each Edition is an exceptional diversion from The Lakes sherry-led house style; an expression of creative freedom, the product of a playground where instinct, experience and inspiration roam free.

    Mosaic has a mellow, rustic elegance in keeping with its cosmopolitan influences. Taking inspiration from the Silk Road, the ancient intercontinental avenue of east west trade and cultural exchange, Mosaic unites eclectic influences and flavours in a singular, sophisticated expression.

    From crisp autumn days in the west, where the thin, sharp air surrenders to the aromas of woodfire and spent leaves, to the heady spice melange of Moorish bazaars and onwards into light, delicate oriental wood nuances evoking a wisdom synonymous with Japanese temples.
