The fourth edition of the Apera Cask Strength from our Preview Series began its life in 20L ex-Apera Sherry French Oak casks in Bond Room 3 at Waubs Harbour Distillery and was later finished in a 100L ex-Apera Sherry French Oak cask. Bottled at cask strength of 63% bringing a real intensity to the whisky.
The Bond 3 Preview Series takes spirit which Head Distiller, Rob Polmear, distilled at a former distillery and matured at Waubs Harbour as our stills were being installed.
Rob's tasting notes describe rich dried fruits; pear, apricot and fig with a salted caramel and almond overlay, a dash of orange and buttery malt backbone. Think cherry ripe. Drinks very well at full strength or add water to open it up. See full tasting notes below.
Like glazed cherries with cinnamon tea cake. A hint of salted caramel and weathered oak.
Dried pear, fig and apricot. Orange citrus notes to balance sweetness while oak adds that spiced complexity.
Dried fruits to begin which give way to cream/butter with nutty, earthy oak notes. Keeps you wanting to go back for more.
