Pickerings Island Oak Aged Gin 47% 350ml
Is it a whisky? Is it a gin? It’s Pickering’s Oak Aged Gin – gin distilled in the usual way, then aged (finished) in a Scotch whisky cask. In this case, a whisky cask from the Island region.
On the nose: Beautifully delicate. Hints of toasted marshmallow and log fire open up into soft, damp hay with mellow, earthy, peated notes on top.
On the palate: Wonderfully complex. Brief umami turns quickly into explosive warmth and an oaty, vanilla sweetness. A touch of smoke supports the spiced botanicals leaving a trace of peat on the tongue for a smoky finish.
Alcohol Vol. 47%
