Peter discusses the launch: "I am delighted to announce the release of the third Founders' Club Reserve bottling! Aged exclusively in ex-Peated barrels and unleashed at a cask strength of 61.6%, the team and I are all incredibly proud of this bottling. It signifies a significant building block of flavour to the Founders' Club bundle and truly the next step in the journey of Kingsbarns… Just as we celebrate our 6th anniversary since opening in November 2014. This new arrival is multi-layered, complex and stands alone in terms of anything we have previously released. Slainte Mhath."
Tasting notes from Peter:
Chill Filtration: No
Cask: 100% ex-Peated barrels
Nose: Fresh pears and Galia melon. Delicate, wispy smoke gives it a beautiful coastal edge.
Taste: Fruit salad of melons and green apple following on from the nose.
Finish: Subtle peat smoke and just a touch of salt in the finish.
