Whisky Reviews Net
“… Another promising sign that the distillery are onto something, and the Bordeaux influence seems to work well with their distillery character.”
Whisky For Everyone
“…it is very interesting how the three different cask types have taken the same spirit in three different flavour directions. The spirit seems fresh with green apple, robust and malty. It has plenty of potential.”

The Guardian: Get in the Christmas spirits
“While we’re on the subject of whisky, who knew you could buy a single malt from Devon? Dartmoor Whisky offers three finishes, of which I personally like the savoury, winey Ex-Bordeaux Cask Single Malt (£59.50 for 70cl, 46%), but the distillery also has a smartly packaged and rather more affordable “Discovery Set” (£29.95 for three 50ml bottles), if you’d like to try all of its current range.”

Devon Life: December Issue
Spirit of Christmas
“Savour the flavour of this heady whisky made in Bovey Tracey that captures the spirit of Dartmoor. Devon-grown barley and spring water from the edge of Dartmoor National Park is distilled and then aged for three years in an ex-Bordeaux single cask, soaking up premium red wine aromas and flavours.
It has a medium amber hue with aromas of raspberry and blackcurrant that mingle with hints of chocolate and coconut plus a sweet and floral finish. Serve it neat with a dash of water or a cube of ice as an after dinner drink. “Devon Life, 2020
