Lakes Whiskymaker's Editions - Bal Masque (700ml)

The Lakes Whiskymaker's Editions - Bal Masque (700ml)

Limited Release!

Whiskymaker’s Editions is a series of bottlings that showcases a different side to the distillery’s single malt. The Lakes tends to opt for a sherry-led flavour profile in its flagship Whiskymaker’s Reserve bottlings but the Editions series gives them a chance to showcase divergences from that style. Previous versions have featured bourbon cask and port cask maturation, for example.

The latest release is Bal Masque, which has been matured in French oak casks. Bottled at 54%. The name is inspired by the Masquerade Ball tradition that originated in 15th century France. These lavish, costumed celebrations consisted of elaborate feasts and dances for the upper classes. That is, until the people of France decided they’d had enough of such shenanigans and sent them all to the guillotine. The name was apparently chosen because of the mysterious and seductive interplay of flavours created by the French Oak casks.
