Tasting notes by the Annandale Distillery Tasting Panel – #348 (2017) 

Appearance – Wonderfully rich golden amber hue

Nose – Peat is subtle at first but very reminiscent of tobacco smoke and smoky bacon. This is followed by a hint of coconut and sweet almond cherry Bakewell.

Palate – A huge peat explosion, bringing in earthy notes with smouldering green foliage and creamy vanilla.

Finish – Fresh peach, peat and a slight tickle of black pepper on the back of the throat.

On the advice of ‘The Einstein of Whisky’, Dr Jim Swan, late friend of our Annandale Distillery co-owner Professor David Thomson, matured some of our highly acclaimed peated spirit using STRs.

STR (Shaved, Toasted and Re-Charred) were developed by Jim Swan and Miguel Martin in Spain, using a secret process. These Swan/Martin STRs are ex-red Burgundy, 230 litre hogsheads.

In relatively short order, they have conferred a wonderful fruity character on our maturing peated spirit, that is complex and well-balanced.

And now, our STR releases have picked up critical acclaim at the San Francisco Spirit Awards receiving both a gold and silver medal in their category.
