Forest Distillery - Forest Whisky Blend No.8Glazed With Real Gold
On the nose, blend 8 has sweet citrus notes, moving onto toffee apple and apricot with fruity dark chocolate notes lingering.
On the palate, it has a burst of sweet spice, complimented by charred oak – mirroring the sweet citrus nose with a medium dry finish.
The Forest Distillery have blended some really interesting Malt whisky here. All malt, all aged 8 years and above. They have then taken that blend and finished it in second fill Oloroso casks (50 year old wood) at the distillery for a further 12 months. This has now been bottled at 47% in 700ml porcelain bottles using spring water.
The bottles are polished black porcelain with a papercut by the artist Georgia Low glazed with real gold.
