The Eden Mill 2020 Release Single Malt is a limited release of 800 70cl bottles unveiled on St Andrews Day.
From the moment we realised our site in St Andrews was founded on the same site as the Haig Family, we knew the whisky world is where Eden Mill belonged. As we move forward to 2021, a huge year with our new distillery in progress, whisky is at the forefront of our future plans.
140 Eden Mill 2020 Release Single Malt Whisky Hampers are now available and include not only our newest Single Malt release but a 20cl of our 2019 Release and also showcase two unreleased peated expressions - the latest instalments in our ever-popular Hip Flask Series, Hip Flasks 16 and 17.
For our 2020 Release Single Malt, Eden Mill has produced a limited run of 800 bottles of Single Malt Scotch Whisky. The liquid we have crafted pushes the boundaries of our previous whisky expressions, incorporating Bourbon, Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso barrels as well as spirit distilled using Pale, Chocolate, Brown and Crystal Malt Barley.
This edition of our single malt showcases the evolution of our cask and spirit, bringing you light vanilla and toasted cinnamon from bourbon barrels, combined with the rich fruit and subtle spice from our distinctive range of sherry casks, leading to a creamy biscuity finish.
Nose: Sherry fruit forward, with bright fruity notes of raisin and plum and a lively oak spice alongside. Under these sweet notes is a creamy maltiness and light hint of apricot.
Taste: Peppery spice initially, with rich raisin and date sweetness. Spice persists as the sweetness begins to fade, with hints of toasted cinnamon and light vanilla sweetness towards the end, reminiscent of butterscotch candy.
Finish: As the spice fades, hints of roasted malt and crumbly shortbread linger. Sweet and spicy notes balance to leave a gentle apricot fruit and subtle cassia spice.
70CL // 46.5 ABV
Pale Malt Spirit aged in an ex-Islay Whisky Refill cask. Filled on 04/02/16.
This is a cask of our standard pale spirit that has been matured in an ex-peated cask, to showcase the amount of peat flavour the cask itself can contribute to the spirit. The whisky is pale straw in colour, with a dry, almost-wood-smoke aroma, along with cereal-and-hay aromas. The peat level is mild-moderate, with the emphasis being more on the woodsmoke-bonfire-ember character.
20CL // 47% ABV
Peated Malt Spirit aged in a Refill Bourbon cask. Filled on 20/07/16.
This is our first cask of peated malt spirit that we've released, matured in a refill bourbon cask. The whisky is a straw-amber colour, with a more pronounced, phenolic peaty aroma. The peat level is richer, with a robust earthiness along with a dense, peat-smoke flavour. This is lightened with spicy oak and sweet vanilla character from the bourbon cask.
20CL // 47% ABV
