RG Exclusive: Man O' Words - Double Oak Cask - 70cl, 60.2% abv

Annandale Distillery was established way back in 1836, and passed through many hands before whisky making ceased in the early 1920s...

That’s how things remained until 2007 when Annandale caught the eye of a husband-and-wife/business partner team:
Professor David Thomson, an expatriate Scot, was looking for a project that would anchor his life back to his native Scotland while Teresa Church was keen to find work that supported her enduring passion for restoring old buildings...

Annandale ticked all the boxes and so began an extensive £10.5 million restoration project that culminated in the restoration of Annandale Distillery in 2014.

Whisky flowed from the stills on Annandale again on 3 November 2014. The whole production setup was built under the guidance and supervision of the late, great Dr. Jim Swan, who advised the use of traditional wooden washbacks and helped source high-quality casks.

The distillery produces both peated and unpeated single malt  - Single cask whisky, bottled at cask strength!

The Peated Whisky is bottled under the Man O’ Sword name after King Robert the Bruce, Scotland’s warrior king and the 7th Lord of Annandale, while Unpeated Whisky is presented as Man O’ Words after Robert Burns, the Scottish Bard and once an exciseman in Annandale!!

Robert Graham Recommends

A deceptively smooth cask strength whisky aged in two barrels, including an ex woodford reserve barrel, has notes of caramel, vanilla with a buttery texture.
