“The liquid we have crafted pushes the boundaries of our previous whisky expressions,” Eden Mill’s Head Distiller Scott Ferguson said in a prepared statement. “This small batch of Eden Mill single malt showcases the evolution of cask and spirit, bringing you light vanilla and toasted cinnamon from bourbon barrels, combined with the rich fruit and subtle spice from our distinctive range of sherry casks, leading to a creamy biscuity finish.”

Collectors can buy the bottle on its own at £85 ($114.21 USD) or as part of the 2020 Release Single Malt Hamper alongside the 2019 Release Single Malt and two new additions to Eden Mill’s hipflask series – Hip Flasks 16 and 17 – on the Eden Mill website.

“This limited release is a real reflection of the team, our passion and Eden Mill’s pioneering spirit which has stayed strong throughout 2020,” added co-founder of Eden Mills Tony Kelly. “We can’t wait for people to enjoy a dram of our 2020 Single Malt Scotch safely at home this festive season.”

You’ll find official tasting notes for the Eden Mill 2020 Release Single Malt Whisky below.

  • Nose: Sherry fruit forward, with bright fruity notes of raisin and plum and a lively oak spice alongside. Under these sweet notes is a creamy maltiness and light hint of apricot.
  • Taste: Peppery spice initially, with rich raisin and date sweetness. Spice persists as the sweetness begins to fade, with hints of toasted cinnamon and light vanilla sweetness towards the end, reminiscent of butterscotch candy.
  • Finish: As the spice fades, hints of roasted malt and crumbly shortbread linger. Sweet and spicy notes balance to leave a gentle apricot fruit and subtle cassia spice.
