Pale Malt Spirit aged in an ex-Islay Whisky refill cask. Filled on 04/02/16.
This Hip Flask release has been created by ageing our Pale Malt Spirit in an ex-Islay Whisky refill cask. This ex-peated cask has been used to showcase the amount of peat flavour the cask itself can contribute to the spirit. This whisky has a dry, almost wood-smoke aroma, along with hints of cereal and hay. The level of peat is mild/moderate, with the emphasis on the woodsmoke bonfire-ember character of the liquid.
Hip Flask No 16 is 47% ABV, 20CL and uniquely presented in an exclusive all-white Hip Flask Series carton. The outside carton has changed from previous releases to signify the difference in these new expressions - as these are our first-ever peated releases.
The Hip Flask series is a progressive and pioneering range of single cask expressions of Eden Mill single malt scotch whisky. No #16 & #17 are the final instalments in our Hip Flask Series and we really hope whisky drinkers have enjoyed a great experimental journey with us exploring and sharing our passion together.
We recommend using our Glencairn whisky glass to pour, nose and savour this unique Single Malt Scotch Whisky.
Lightly spiced, cherry fudge/tablet and sweet vanilla ice cream. Kilned oak coming through on the low notes.
Sweet oak and nutty. Tobacco coming through near the end.
Tobacco carries through to the end with a mild pepper prickle.
