Steel Bonnets 5cl 46.6%
Steel Bonnets Whisky is a blended malt whisky creation by The Lakes Distillery. The name refers to a historic band of people who lived in the Border Marches of England and Scotland who were born to wars and was forced to live with it for most of their lives. This whisky has been alleged as a kind of expression of the cultural fusion that happened in that area as a result of a prolonged period of intermittent wars between the English and the Scots.
At 46.6% ABV, this whisky is definitely not for the untrained palate. Processed using non-chilled filtration, you can expect more of that malty mellow sweetness and graininess to come through.
What do you get for paying a more expensive Steel Bonnets Whisky price tag over other blended whiskies? On the nose, that aroma of malted grain is accompanied by smokiness and spices. On the palate, expect the warming welcome of spicy and warming flavours reminiscent of autumn, that includes ginger and nutmeg, with the comforting cloak of smooth vanilla.
You can enjoy the same experience when you buy a Steel Bonnets Whisky small bottle just to sample what this whisky has to offer. Have The Lakes Steel Bonnet 5cl miniatures case by your home bar for nights when you’re craving a cocktail with a more potent whisky base.
