This 2015 edition was distilled in 2003 and matured in traditional cask followed by a finishing period in ex-port wood casks. The ex-port barrels adds an extra layer of flavour and complexity, very much complimenting the base-spirit.
Wolfburn Aurora is matured in three different types of cask: refill quarter casks, first-fill bourbon barrels and first-fill oloroso sherry hogsheads. The three components are married to produce a sweet whisky with hints of spice.
'Eigashima Shuzo’ is the only distillery in Japan being able to make not only Whisky but also Sake, Shochu and Umeshu, a Japanese plum wine. They are also the first distillery in Japan that obtained their whisky making license in 1919, almost a hundred years ago, before "Yamazaki” was established.
A fascinating 13 year old Irish single malt which has enjoyed a finishing period in Mizunara oak casks! The whiskey was matured in bourbon barrels before being filled into casks made with Mizunara from Japan! Stunning stuff from the Glendalough range.
A well-balanced and nuanced Mortlach, selected and bottled by Gordon & MacPhail as part of the Distillery Labels range. Rather than the full-on sherry monsters that Mortlach is better known for, this is a more complex take, with restrained sherry-cask notes and lots of Mortlach's rich and malty character. If you're a sherry fan, don't worry: there's still lots of rich fruit and raisins here, tempered by a touch of sultana and vanilla.
