Fado Vivo (2015 - SOLD OUT)
Fado Vivo is a limited edition released to mark the 2nd anniversary of De Molenberg Distillery.
This edition is a special blend of single malt whisky aged for 2 years in Tawny Port casks (75%) with a few 'Anker' casks of varying ages selected from the different ageing rooms (25%). These Portuguese cask, previously used for over 6 years to mature port wines, provide the 2-year finish after earlier ageing for 3 years in traditional ex-Bourbon casks.
Just as the Portuguese ‘Fado’ music genre effortlessly expresses a range of different emotions, so this ruby-red whisky combines the powerful taste (‘Vivo’) of grain and oak with the gentle warmth of port wine and ripe fruit, enhanced by subtle hints of cinnamon and honey.
