This is the much anticipated new release from Daftmill distillery, which is owned and operated by the Cuthbert family. They grow all of the barley used in their whisky on-site. The distillery is only operational during the farm's quiet periods in mid-summer and mid-winter, and as such, sometimes fewer than 100 casks are produced per year from the distillery, which is located in the Howe of Fife. This cask strength 15-year-old release was distilled in 2006 using Chariot barley harvested on the on 31st August 2004 at the farm's Dam Park and Curling Pond fields . This was some of the last barley to be malted in Fife by Robert Kilgour & Co before they closed. Bottled in 2022, this Daftmill 15-year-old has been crafted from Lowland single malt, matured in first fill ex-bourbon barrels for 15 years and is at natural cask strength of 55.7% alcohol by volume. The patience and dedication to their craft has garnered the distillery hordes of dedicated fans, including collectors and connoisseurs.
Nose: Soft meadow fruits, tinned peaches, lychees, red grapes, all-spice and vanilla.
Palate: Plenty of honey and oats with orchard fruits and vanilla.
Finish: Wood and nutmeg lingering.
