Description

Marmalade Overdrive is the latest experimental small batch ‘heresy’ project from the desk of our whisky manager, Euan Campbell, and proudly has an Australian history in wood. A marvellous, richly-textured, easy-drinking, malt of the month that we’re so excited to share around finally. Bottled at a very comfortable ‘drinking strength’ of 50% ABV and matured for at least 14 years, this is the most exciting new heresy bottling we’ve ever produced. Maximum 2x bottles per/member until end of the month, unless sold out prior.

What an aroma neat, with popcorn drizzled in melted salted butter, heather and gorse flowers baking in the hot summer sun, pears poached in red wine and crimson marmalade on a slice of malt loaf. Juicy and fruity on the palate with the pleasing tartness of green apples in perfect balance with the silky sweetness of strawberry jelly and honey liqueur. In the finish gentle spices like cinnamon, cardamom and nutmeg that resemble the calm Caribbean Sea lapping a sandy beach. Following reduction – careful when adding water – the scent reminded us of cherry clafoutis, toffee apples and mango chutney. In the taste, a floral hint to start followed by diluted blackcurrant juice. The finish gave us white pepper.
