Redacted Bros Blended Malt Scotch Whisky

8 years
Aged 8 years in an oak cask, blended, rested, and bottled in Dornoch

Nose: galia melon, lemongrass, apricot, cucumber, waxed lemons, green peppercorns & capers in brine, green apples, lime cordial, grapefruit bitters, green peppers, coastal peat & beach bonfires.

Palate: greengage, cantaloupe melon, banana smoothie, lemon oil, grapefruit juice, capers, lemongrass, thyme, 1st press olive oil, candle wax, and gentle smoke.

Finish: lemon balm, thyme, camphor, earthy peat & gentle smoke, long with a coating waxiness.

Our goal with SRV5 was to create a core blended malt Scotch whisky in a style that we, as whisky geeks, would want to enjoy. It is bright and fresh, with plenty of texture and a hint of smoke. We bottled at a quaffable 48.5% without chill-filtration or added colour. This whisky is easily mixed and at an accessible price; a whisky for everyone!

The Producer

Dornoch Distillery was founded by brothers Phil and Simon Thomson in 2016. The distillery is focused on creating Single Malt Whisky using a mixture of traditional and modern methods, including sourcing heritage barley varieties, fermenting with local brewers' yeast, embracing and harnessing natural seasonal variation to create flavour-packed spirits. With maturation, bottling, dilution and filtration conducted in-house at our Dornoch bond, the team can focus on each release individually - both those distilled at Dornoch Distillery and the independent bottlings - ensuring that they retain as much of the spirit's unique character as possible, bottling with natural colour and without chill filtration.

Dornoch Distillery produces 12,000 litres of alcohol per year, which makes the distillery one of the smallest by production and size in Scotland. Due to the extremely limited production Dornoch Single Malt Whisky is only available in very small quantities. However, the team have plans for expansion in the coming year - check out our website for full details!
