|This kit contains 4 different whiskey base essences as well as the following adjunct flavours.|
Oak Cask - A distinctive rounded oak cask flavour which is a main component in most whiskies.
Sweet Vanillin - As the name suggests, this imparts a sweet vanilla flavour often found in whiskey that has been barrel aged. It also has a slight sherry flavour.
Peat Smoke - A strong, almost pungent peat smoke flavour that is a very prominent flavour note in Scottish Whiskies.
Astringent Notes - A sharp, bitter, astringent flavour that helps to add some bite to the whiskey.
Fruity Esters - Fruity esters are prominent on the nose more than anywhere else. They add a great deal to the whiskey bouquet.
Cereal Notes - Often described as grainy, these flavour notes are a part of any grain spirit and are contained in the whiskey bases. This essence allows additional cereal notes to be added to taste.
Carob Notes - A chocolate grain flavour that results from the use of some mildly roasted grains and can also be contributed by some varieties of yeast during the early stages of fermentation.
Cedar Oak - This imparts a distinctive drier oak flavour than the oak cask essence and is often found in Irish style whiskey.
Distillers Caramel - This is a stable caramel colour ideally suitable for distilled spirit as it is slightly negative in charge and imparts a warm golden hue to the whiskey.
Glycerin - There are two bottles supplied in this pack as this is used in every recipe and contributes smoothness and mouth feel. It is naturally occurring in almost all whiskies.
