Aged: No age statement
Product of: United Kingdom
“By law, we’re not allowed to tell customers the age of the component whiskies used to create Enlightenment. We can tell you that Enlightenment is a blend of malt whiskies from the Clynelish, Glentauchers, Balblair and Mortlach distilleries. We can tell you that you will find a bright apple and pear quality on the nose, soft spice and light citrus fruit notes on the palate with a mouth-watering finish full of an alluring apple peel waxiness. We can tell you the casks the whisky was matured in - but crucially we can’t tell you how long for.’
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 11/06/2016
Clear, light to mid-golden amber.
Green apple skin and ripe pear with creamy fruitcake, pear drops, dried strawberry and mild black pepper. Water harmonises, amplifying mild pencil shavings.
Medium-bodied and incredibly fruity with vanilla oak, ripe apple, pear drops and elegant Christmassy spice. As with the nose, water tones back fruit and amplifies spicy oak. Dilute to taste.
Stewed apple and pear drops with lingering parma violet and very mild spicy oak.
Wonderfully fruity with pronounced stewed apple and pear drops with faint parma violet and a perfectly balanced spicy oak garnish.
