Fisherman’s Retreat Edition 7 – Bruichladdich Yalumba Octavious Cask

Distilled – 24th August 2011

Bottled – September 2019

Colour – Burnt Orange

ABV – 50.4%

Body – Rich and succulent, the cask and the spirit have worked in
harmony to create a truly unique dram.

Nose – Flavours of mellow oak, marzipan, melon balls, cranberry &
pomegranate all held together in a beautiful Hebridean overture of
vanilla & wild honey and encapsulated in a soft marine aroma with
floral hints of heather in bloom. Coastal wild flower notes drift by on
a marine Hebridean breeze. It’s Islay in its purest form, no smoke &
iodine to fog the palate, it’s so simple, it’s so pure. Hints of
succulent ripe grapes lead to be followed by the crispy sweet malt
extract and all the while a marine overture brings balance and a
taste of why a pure Islay without the overcoat of peat smoke can
match any spirit in the world. Great example of people, place and
pride in total harmony.

Palate – Sweet oak reveals itself initially only to be overlapped with
notes of citrus and hints of wild flowers, gently complimented by
fresh berries. At 50.4% this dram tantalises every part of the pallet
all the way to the end.

Fisherman’s Retreat Edition 8 Arran – Yalumba Viognier Cask

Distilled – 27th August 2013

Bottled – 9th February 2021

Colour – Pure Gold with a clover hue

ABV – 50.0%

Our Edition 8 is a 7 year old single cask Arran non chill filtered, which has spent its life in a Yalumba Viognier white wine cask on the Isle of Arran. With only 408 bottles produced at 50.0% this is a very unique and limited single malt, what further adds to its uniqueness is that the tasting notes where also written by Jim McEwan who describes its taste as…

Colour – Pure Gold with a clover hue
Aromas – Seems more mature than 7 y/o on the elegant wine like nose. Lots of plump soft grapes sweet and succulent encased in the heart of the spirit and as it opens the nuttiness of the oak develops and together with the toasted sweetness of the malted barley it seems more like a 12 year old.
Taste – On the palate it’s the quality of the distillate that emerges and together with the oak guides the taste buds into a crème caramel flavour which provides a stage on which the wine influence steals the show. This crispy sweet ambrosial malt delivers in a big way on the palate in harmony with oak, vanilla, plump ripe grapes all held in a cradle of fine oak.
For one so young the spirit is enjoying its time in this Yalumba cask. Young love, innocent and pure!
