Amongst the many types of wood that are cultivated, one of the most popular is Madeira wood. This wood is grown in Portugal and can be found in a wide variety of products, from furniture to flooring. You can also find the wood used in the production of cosmetics, furniture, and rugs. The Madeira wood is available in a variety of different colors and has been gaining popularity over the past few years.
Located in the Loch Lomond district of Glasgow, Scotland, the Loch Lomond distillery is a family-owned and operated distillery that produces eleven distinct spirits. The distillery produces a range of single malts and is one of the few remaining family-owned distilleries in Scotland. The distillery’s origin story is a fairytale tale combining Scottish and Portuguese cultures.
The Loch Lomond distillery is not a new distillery, but it was created in 1964. It was a pioneering project, and when it was first conceived it was intended to be self-reliant. It is now a small, but mighty distillery that produces some of the best Whiskies in Scotland.
Even though BenRiach has been producing single malts since 1965, they are still one of the few Scotch whisky distilleries to have their floor,Ings. They also have one of the largest stocks of casks of any distillery in Scotland, a fact that is evident from the sheer number of single malts on display at their warehouses.
As is the case with most distilleries in Scotland, BenRiach produces both peated and unpeated single malts, as well as some very tasty rums and bourbons. The distillery has a very long and storied history. It was originally founded by John Duff, who built it on the next site over from where he started his first distillery, Longmorn.
Previously, Glenmorangie’s whisky was aged in ex-Bourbon casks for ten years. Then, for two years, they were left to mature in ex-Madeira wine barrels. The result was a surprisingly fruity, spicy, and honeyed whisky. It’s the latest release in Glenmorangie’s Private Edition range.
Glenmorangie Bacalta is a sun-soaked single malt. The whisky has a smooth and spicy palate, a soft mouthfeel, and an unstructured young spirit. It’s also a little salty and slightly botanical. Its honeyed tones, old roses, and baked fruits are inviting, inviting, and enticing.
The Glenmorangie Private Edition range began with PX Sherry-finished Sonnalta in 2010. Since then, the range has expanded to include the light-peated spirit, Maderensis Fumosus, and the latest release, Bacalta.
Adding a new twist to the classic GlenAllachie style, the distillery has introduced a series of whiskies finished in ex-Madeira wine barrels. Billy Walker, the Master Distiller, personally selected the barrels to add a unique flavor to the GlenAllachie Single Malt. Using his expertise in wood management, Billy monitors the development of the spirit within each cask.
The new Wood Finishes Series includes the GlenAllachie PX Wood Finish, the Ruby Port Wood Finish, and the Madeira Wood Finish. All three have been bottled at 48%. The Ruby Port Wood Finish has a deep, rich flavor that is reminiscent of dark chocolate, berries, and coffee. It also has a hint of maple syrup and charred oak.
Taking a cue from the gods, Amrut is India’s first whisky aged in Madeira wood. This limited edition release is produced in the city of Bangalore and is bottled at 50% abv without coloring. This enveloping, rounded profile has a warming finish that is balanced by an oaky bitterness.
Amrut is made from small-grained Indian barley grown at the foot of the Himalayas and distilled in a small distillery located at 900 meters above sea level. It is matured in ex-bourbon and ex-Madeira casks. The whisky has aromas of rich fruit and raisins. It also has hints of dried herbs, black peppercorns, dried herbs, and curry spices.
