The Lakes The One Signature Blend, 46.6%

Price: $53 Issue: Winter 2020 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick




Orange segments and grapefruit peel with a spritz of peel oils, accompanied by gentle spice, bakery notes, and fruit-flavored jelly candies. Vanilla, sweet orange, honey, grapefruit peel, peppery spice, and lavender, then baked orange with deeper honey tones. Their first bottling, called The One, in 2014 was poor: this isn't. Master blender Dhavall Gandhi joined the distillery in 2016 and he has turned this into a terrific dram.£39
