GlenAllachie 12 Year Old whisky

Pour & Sip

£36.85Regular price

Dating back to 1967 and bought by whisky distillery entrepreneur Billy Walker in 2017, Speyside’s GlenAllachie was initially built to produce whisky for blends. Now, however, with its new ownership, it’s perhaps better known for its lively single cask expressions. This single malt could almost be seen as a statement of intent from Walker, a sign of things he hopes to mature now he’s at the GlenAllachie helm. The 12 year old has been matured in a mix of Pedro Ximénez, Oloroso and virgin oak casks, resulting in fruit-forward deliciousness.

Bunnahabhain 12 Year Old whisky

Pour & Sip

£35.95Regular price

Though Bunnahabhain is based on Islay, home of smoky, peated whisky, the distillery is actually known for its fabulous unpeated expressions! This 12 Year Old was first launched back in 1979, so it has truly stood the test of time. Its maturation is spent in a combination of bourbon and sherry casks, so there’s a gorgeous balance of spice and sweetness thanks to the cask influence workingalongside the more savoury coastal notes in the distillate.

The ONE Orange Wine Cask Finished whisky

Pour & Sip

£43.15Regular price

A fascinating limited-edition expression from the Lake District’s very own The Lakes Distillery. Founded in 2011 by Paul Currie (he also set up the Isle of Arran Distillery), the producer has always been about the pursuit of flavour – a philosophy shared by master blender Dhavall Gandhi. To make orange wine, peel from Andalucían oranges is macerated in said wine. The Lakes team then used it to season first-fill American casks! After its full maturation, the whisky was transferred to these casks for a finishing period, which gives it its oily character and distinct flavour. Delicious and unusual stuff.

Starward Nova whisky

Pour & Sip

£44.95Regular price

It’s surrounded by some of Australia’s leading wine regions, which informs a lot of its whisky making – including Nova. This expression was matured in casks that previously held Shiraz, Pinot Noir and Cabernet. Casks are watertight but not airtight, meaning they can ‘breathe’, drawing liquid into the staves. When the whisky follows the wine, it picks up some of the character of the previous contents – expect big, bold fruit notes.

Teeling Brabazon Bottling Series 3 whisky

Pour & Sip

£80.95Regular price

A cask-finished Irish single malt from Teeling, which returned its distilling to Dublin back in 2015. This is the third release in its Brabazon series, named after the Brabazon family who were based in Dublin’s Newmarket area for over 300 years. The series explores fortified wine cask maturation, so the distillery teamed up with a family-owned winery in Jerez which specialises in Pedro Ximénez grapes for this one! Naturally, the 14 year old whiskey was finished in the winery’s own Pedro Ximénez casks, so it’s all dried berries and orchard fruit in here.

Balvenie 14 Year Old - The Week of Peat whisky

Pour & Sip

£58.45Regular price

Over in Speyside, you’ll find The Balvenie Distillery based in Dufftown. While Balvenie (and Speyside in general) isn’t typically known for peated whisky, back in 2002 former distillery manager Ian Millar trialled drying barley with peat for the first time, seizing an opportunity when he found a week’s gap in the distillery’s production schedule. And so, the aptly-named The Week of Peat expression was born!
Released as part of The Balvenie Stories range, the 14 Year Old is full of the hallmark distillery notes of honey and vanilla, with a fragrant dose of peat smoke giving it something a little different.

Mackmyra Grönt Te whisky

Pour & Sip

£47.65Regular price

Mackmyra was founded in 1999 as the first distillery in Sweden at the time, and it never shies away from a unique cask finish! Grönt Te (which translates to ‘green tea’) was made in collaboration with Japanese tea specialist Yuko Ono Sthlm, and the single malt was finished in casks that were freshly seasoned with a blend of Oloroso sherry and green tea leaves. The result is wonderfully fresh and herbaceous, with the cask influence subtle but effective.
