Thompson Brothers Distillers SRV5 Blended Malt Scotch Whisky

48.5% abv

Vol- 70cl

SRV5 was to create a Blended Malt that although consistent would evolve over time due to the inclusion of the ‘starter’ from the previous batch in the following batch.
We wanted to create a style that we, as whisky geeks, would enjoy. We work with a selection of North Highland, Islay and Speyside Single Malts to create a vatted malt which is bright and fresh and has a great slightly waxy mouthfeel and gentle smokey balance.
We decided that the spirit showed best at 48.5% ABV, and of course, like the rest of our bottlings, the spirit is non-chill filtered and bottled without any colouring.

Nose: Gaia melon, lemongrass, apricot, cucucmber, waxed lemons, green peppercorn & capers in brine, green apples, lime cordial, grapefruit bitters, green peppers, coastal peat & beach bonfires.
Palate: Greengage, cantaloupe melon, banana smoothie, lemon oil, grapefruit juice, capers, lemongrass, thyme, candlewax, 1st press olive oil and gentle smoke.
Finish: Lemon balm, thyme, camphor, earthy peat & gentle smoke. Long with a coating waxiness.

After establishing in Dornoch what may be the best whisky bar in Europe (if not the world), Phil and Simon Thompson decided to take their passion for whisky to the next level by building a distillery on the grounds of Dornoch Castle Hotel. Off the back of a successful crowdfunding campaign, Dornoch's first whisky distillery was formed. Based out of an old fire station, Dornoch Distillery is quickly becoming one of Scotland's most exciting distilleries. Inspired by whiskies of a bygone age, where flavour creation meant more than commercial yield, the brothers are experimenting with very long fermentation times (7-10 days) and all cuts from the still are made by nose (and sometimes mouth) rather than thermometers, hydrometers and automated machinery. We've got a couple of years until their spirit is ready to be called whisky so in the meantime the brothers are distilling and selling an incredible Organic Highland Gin and bringing some exceptional single cask whisky from other distilleries to the market as independent bottlers.
