Careful STR treatment hasn’t stripped away all the good wine influence back to cardboard. Plenty of Lindores spirit notes present also with more than a little tannic and chewy wood. Definitely improving. 83/100
Lindores New Make
Once again I’m impressed with the quality of Lindores new make with it’s lovely mixture of fruit and cereal and nutty aromas and flavours.
Pleasant with some presence of distillery character and plenty of oak wood influence. The cask variety adds to a multitude of flavours and aromas also. 82/100
Lindores Abbey 2 Years Old 2018 Cask 29
A hint of Lindores Abbey florality peeks through here but most of this spirit reveals cask-led flavours, coastal, lime and peat perhaps even a Kildalton malt was previously in this cask?
Lindores Abbey 3 Years Old 2018 Cask 95
My favourite of the tasting, despite being a larger container with reduced wood influence the sherry has really worked wonders here.
Lindores Abbey 3 Years Old 2018 Cask 38
The STR wine barrique has imparted plenty of colour and lots of sweet red fruit flavours and herbal nature into Lindores Abbey distillate here.
Lindores Abbey 3 Years Old 2018 Cask 68
An insight into Lindores Abbey distillate signature following 3 years in 1st fill ex-bourbon cask. Revealing floral and tropical fruit flavours.
Lindores Abbey Cask Blend
Lindores Abbey Cask Blend review: A little too feisty at 60% ABV, but packed full of dried fruit, spice and toffee, well-reduced with water it reveals some cask and some new make spirit characters and suggest that things are maturing quite nicely at Lindores Abbey distillery – a taste of things to come. 82/100
Lindores Abbey Aqua Vitae
Lindores Abbey Aqua Vitae review: Interesting neat but tastes a bit like a cough medicine and reminded me a lot of Calvados too, perhaps as part of a cocktail or longer drink this would come into its own? 80/100
Lindores Abbey New Make Spirit
Lindores Abbey New Make Spirit review: A delicate New Make Spirit with plenty of malt character and little lactic or metallic nature as can often be found, my guess would be they are aiming this to be very drinkable when it is still young (similar to Kilchoman when they started distilling)?
