The Lakes The One Orange Wine Cask-Finished, 46.6%

Price: $65 Issue: Winter 2020 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick




Mandarin, breakfast pastries, lemon meringue pie, warm peach, sweet grapefruit halves, and a fine layer of spices on the nose make for an appealing introduction. Baked orange, sweet fudge, and pepper on first sip, with later development of grilled pineapple, vanilla, and dried mango. With its instantly likeable flavors, this is a great recruiting whisky for new drinkers, though the palate development has its limitations. £48
