COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewer’s Reserve No.3 has spent 800 days gently maturing in old Auchentoshan whisky barrels, the longest maturation period of any of the Brewer’s Reserve beers. The beer draws notes of vanilla, honey and spicy ginger from the whisky-soaked wood, combined with a rich malty body.

Fin (7671) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2011
Bottle from Bell & Crown pub, nr Kew Bridge, London, 05.11.11 on Thames Tipple, consumed 08.11.11 Pours reddy/amber with very little head to speak of, there might of been one, however when I got around to rating it, it must have shot off. There is a little whisky on the nose but it is not over done and there is a light woodiness wonderful soft vanilla, good nose. Tastes great, soft in mouth, vanilla, maltiness, some whisky but in no way is it overdone, warmth throughout, tiny bit of spice. If there is anything lacking it is there is that despite all of the positives it lacks just a bit more depth of flavour, however considering it is whisky cask aged I am so glad that this isn’t over the top. Good beer, I like this. A8 A3 T8 P4 Ov17 4.0
