About The Beer
Brewery: Innis & Gunn
Style: Imperial/Double Stout
Format: 500ml Bottle
Vanishing Point 05 has been a year in the making with this 2021 limited-edition matured for 365 days in a rare cache of casks, freshly emptied of 15-Year-Old Speyside Single Malt Whisky.
Jet black in colour, the beer has abundant aromas of oak and coconut alongside pleasant hints of dried red fruit. The flavour is of luxurious dark chocolate, oak and vanilla with a warming, spiritous character. There is a heady malt character to the beer which has been refined and mellowed through over 8,000 hours in cask. The finish is complex and smooth, with roasted malts and whisky notes lingering. Truly one to savour.
"Innis & Gunn created the Vanishing Point series as a philosophy; it represents a commitment to our fans and our brewers that we will constantly endeavour to create the very best beer we can. Year after year, learning as we go, we refine our approach to its brewing and maturation and further develop the recipe of this special beer. Vanishing Point 05 is our fifth annual release and once again we feel we have lived up to the spirit and philosophy of this series. This is the first time we have used 15-Year-Old Speyside Single Malt Whisky Casks, which have imparted wonderful aromas and flavours that you won’t have tasted in this series so far. For me, this is a real step up and signals a new direction for this series in our quest to progress the beer year after year."
