April Fool's Whisky April Fool's Whisky

Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky

70cl / 51.7%

Despite its youthful demeanour, this whisky is no spring chicken. Distilled at a mystery Speyside distillery more than three decades past, this deceptive drop has been matured in first-fill ex-bourbon casks meaning that, even at the ripe old age of 30, it’s a fresh, lively and playful dram packed with vanilla and rich, fresh fruit.

April Fool's Whisky

To celebrate the tricksters, the jokers and everyone who can see the lighter side of life, we’ve bottled a special whisky for April Fool’s Day. Like the best jokes, it may look simple at first, but there’s a lot going underneath...

Raj Chavda, Creative Director at The Whisky Exchange played trickster-in-chief this year, coming up with the concept and designing the labels: “I wanted to encapsulate the fun and foolery of April Fools’ Day. Using typography to integrate both the trick of the details on the label ‘extremely young, I wish I were older,’ and combining it with a hidden design revealed under UV light of the ‘wish coming true’ – this really being a 30 year old whisky".

Tasting Notes

  • Billy Abbott (The Whisky Exchange)

    • Nose

      A complex cake to start: layered lemon drizzle and Victoria sponge, filled with buttercream. Notes of gummi bear and mint imperial float in around the sides, accompanied by growing pineapple and pear. Spicy notes of black pepper and nutmeg build through the middle, leading to sweet, butterscotch-and-orange-studded sugar cookies.

    • Palate

      The lemons are back and lead the way – lemon drizzle cake topped with candied lemon slices. The gummi bears sit alongside the citrus, joined by spiced sponge cake and white chocolate. Sweet cream and milk bottle sweets follow, with slowly developing mint fondant. The leafy and spicy notes round things out, with hints of aniseed and a handful of herbal lozenges.

    • Finish

      Sweet and buttery to start, with aniseed and nutmeg building before fading to leave vanilla butter cookies and a hint of mint cream.

    • Comment

      Don’t let Mr April fool you – this whisky is not only real, but it shows its true colours in the glass.
