GlenWyvis 2018 Single Malt Batch 2
Once the heart of Scottish whisky production, GlenWyvis marks the return of distilling to Dingwall after nearly 100 years. Founded in 2015, GlenWyvis Distillery is one of the largest Community Benefit Societies in the UK, crowdfunded by over 3,600 backers with a portion of proceeds going back to the local community. Nestled amongst the foothills of Ben Wyvis in the Scottish Highlands, the distillery combines modern technology with a traditional process, harnessing renewable energy from wind, rain and sun, while a biomass boiler supplies steam for two small copper stills.
This second batch of whisky distilled in 2018 has been matured in60% first Fill Tennessee Whiskey, 25% First Fill Oloroso, and 15% Refill Whisky. Tennessee Whiskey barrels from America add complex sweetness, Oloroso hogsheads from Spain bring rich fruit and refilled Scotch whisky hogsheads highlight the fragrant, spicy character of GlenWyvis.
Nose: Soft white grapes, giving way to a jammy sweetness.
Palate: Vanilla fudge, sherbet fizz, pear drops.
