Pour & Sip December Whisky Subscription Box

Pour & Sip

£24.95Regular price

In this Pour & Sip box, we’ve been treated to whisky from a whole range of countries, and also a whole range of grains! From Irish grain to Finnish rye, one thing they all have in common is heaps of flavour. Want to find out the rest? They’re right here!


  • Talisker 8 Year Old (Special Release 2020): From Diageo’s annual Special Releases, this Talisker is a first from the Isle of Skye distillery, as it’s the first single malt to have spent its entire maturation in casks which previously held pot-still Caribbean rum! A tasty balance of savoury coastal Talisker smoke and tropical fruit from the cask.

  • Darkness 8 Year Old: We don’t know which distillery this Scotch single malt hails from, but we do know that after its initial maturation in ex-bourbon casks it was transferred to custom-made Oloroso sherry octave casks for at least three months. Octave casks are much smaller than your usual sherry butt, increasing the surface-area-to-volume ratio and amplifying the cask influence!

  • J.J. Corry The Hanson – Batch 2: J.J. Corry is a whiskey bonder in County Clare, Ireland, which means that it doesn’t produce the liquid, but sources it from all over the country before maturing, blending and bottling it. The Hanson is a blended grain whiskey from three casks from a selection of Irish distilleries full of buttery, tropical and vanilla notes.

  • Kyrö Malt Rye: This is the Finnish distillery’s newest release, distilled entirely from malted Finnish wholegrain rye. Its whole maturation was spent in new American white oak casks, imparting some creamier notes to balance the more herbaceous, spicy notes from the grain. 

  • Jura 21 Year Old Tide: Tide hails from the island of Jura’s only distillery, and has been treated to a dual maturation. It rested in American white oak bourbon barrels first, and was then transferred to virgin American white oak casks. A suggestion of smoke runs through the single malt alongside spice and vanilla.

    Pour & Sip October Whisky Box

    Pour & Sip

    £24.95Regular price

    This Pour & Sip box is filled with a five whiskies from England to Australia, with some intriguing cask finishes to check out too! If that's got your mouth watering, you can find out exactly what's in store right here.
    • Starward Nova: This Australian whisky makes the most of the wonderful wine also produced Down Under, having been matured in casks which previously held Australian Shiraz, Pinot Noir and Cabernet. Lots of bold fruity notes to be enjoyed here!
    • GlenAllachie 12 Year Old: A classic sherried whisky from Scotland's Speyside region, GlenAllachie matured this single malt in a combination of Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso casks, as well as virgin oak for its 12 years of ageing. Sherried fruits and spice balanced well with the more tropical notes from the virgin cask.
    • Laphroaig 10 Year Old Cask Strength – Batch 012: A big, peaty Scotch here from Islay's Laphroaig, bottled without dilution straight from the cask at 60.1% ABV! Bourbon barrels have helped balance the savoury coastal and smoky notes in the 12th batch of the Cask Strength series.
    • The ONE Orange Wine Cask Finished: The Lakes Distillery sourced orange wine (made by macerating Andalucían oranges) to season American oak casks, which were then used to finish its own blended whisky, The ONE! Tropical oaky notes and zesty orange work together in this unusual English whisky.
    • WhistlePig 10 Year Old: While Vermont's WhistlePig is working on achieving a 100% grain-to-glass whisky, this 10 Year Old is made by blending its own spirit with rye from Canada, with the latter imparting a bold, spicy and slightly herbal flavour profile that's common in rye whiskies.

      Pour & Sip May 2021 Box

      Pour & Sip

      £29.95

      Our second themed box! The Hebridean island of Islay is famed for its smoky, peated whisky – but there’s so much more to it than that! The island is only 25 miles long, but packs in nine distilleries (with more in the pipeline!). In honour of the famed annual whisky and music festival, which takes place in May each year, we thought we’d fill this month’s box with whiskies from the isle, showing you all the delicious versatility that it has to offer. Time to take your taste buds on a trip!


    • Bruichladdich Islay Barley 2012: A distillery known for its unpeated expressions, Bruichladdich created its Islay Barley series to showcase terroir in its whisky (just like Waterford last month!) – so this is a single malt with a sense of place! It’s a rather honeyed, gently creamy, fruity whisky, with just a smidge of that savoury coastal influence making an appearance.

    • Bunnahabhain Stiùireadair: While the name of this release might look like a tongue-twister, Bunnahabhain is pronounced ‘boo-na-harv-en’, and Stiùireadair is pronounced ‘stew-rahdur’, which means ‘helmsman’ in Scottish Gaelic. It combines the coastal, savoury whisky with both first- and second-fill ex-sherry casks. It’s all sea spray, toasted nuts, and dried fruit in this one!

    • Aerolite Lyndsay 10 Year Old - The Character of Islay Whisky Company: Sourced from an undisclosed distillery on the famed Scottish isle, this whisky spent its days maturing in a combination of ex-bourbon barrels and Spanish oak sherry quarter casks. The tropical sweetness from the bourbon barrels, the spicy, chocolatey notes from the sherry casks, and medicinal smokiness from the whisky itself make for one well-rounded expression.

    • Lagavulin 2005 (bottled 2020) Pedro Ximénez Cask Finish - Distillers Edition: Sherried Lagavulin was something of a rare sight until the first Distiller’s Edition was released in 1979 – and we’ve continued to enjoy it ever since. After a lengthy oak maturation, this single malt spent a finishing period in sweet ex-Pedro Ximénez sherry casks. The savoury, smoky, meaty nature of the spirit complements the dried fruit-forward influence of the casks beautifully.

    • Laphroaig 10 Year Old Sherry Oak Finish: Matured in both American oak ex-bourbon casks and refill ex-Oloroso sherry casks, as well as being treated to a finish in European oak ex-Oloroso sherry casks for between 12 to 18 months. The medicinal, smoky flavours of the whisky are glorious with the sweetness of the bourbon and honeyed spices from the sherry casks.

      • Cameronbridge 27 Year Old (That Boutique-y Whisky Company): a well-aged single grain whisky from the Scottish Lowlands, independently bottled by That Boutique-y Whisky Company.
      • Glengoyne The Legacy Series Chapter Two: the second release from The Legacy Series, matured in first-fill bourbon and sherry casks alongside refill oak casks. Some bright tropical nuances to enjoy here!
      • Nikka Taketsuru Pure Malt: a no-age-statement, roasty, toasty Japanese malt whisky made up of both peated and unpeated spirits, and matured in sherry casks.
      • Uncle Nearest 1856 Premium Whiskey: a Tennessee whiskey with a mash bill of 84% corn along with a touch of rye, aged in new American oak barrels – a buttery, spicy delight. 
      • Highland Park Cask Strength: a smoky, floral Orkney whisky aged solely in sherry casks, bottled straight from the cask without any dilution at a generous 65% ABV.

        Pour & Sip April 2021 Box

        Pour & Sip

        £29.95

        Whiskies from Ireland, Illinois, Israel, and Scotland (they couldn’t all begin with the letter ‘i’!) are packed into April’s Pour & Sip box, with a mystery Scotch single grain, and smoky Highland single malt rounding off this wonderful selection. There’s a lot to unpack here, so let’s dive in! 


        Whisky Works Glaswegian 29 Year Old: A well-aged single grain from a mystery distillery which ‘once stood at the heart of Scotland’s waterways’ in the eponymous Scottish city. Its years were spent in American white oak barrels, so there’s heaps of buttery sweetness to enjoy. 


        FEW Rye Whiskey: Distilled in Evanston, Illinois, FEW Rye is made with a mash bill of 70% rye, 20% corn, and 10% malted barley – so there’s all those herbaceous, spiced notes from the lead grain among a melange of fruitier flavours. 


        Milk & Honey Classic Single Malt: A single malt from Milk & Honey, Israel’s first whisky distillery based in Tel Aviv! It’s matured in ex-bourbon and virgin oak casks, as well as Burgundy red wine-seasoned STR casks (which stands for shaved, toasted and re-charred), imparting lots of red fruit and chocolatey flavours in this rich whisky. 


        Cù Bòcan Signature: Cù Bòcan (pronounced ‘coo-bock-can’) is the name for Tomatin Distillery’s smoky series of single malts. This Signature expression is matured in a trio of ex-bourbon, ex-Oloroso sherry, and North American virgin oak casks, imparting creamy, tropical notes; spicier flavours; and zesty, refreshing nuances respectively. 


        Waterford Arcadian - Gaia 1.1: The Waterford team in Ireland created the Arcadian series to look at terroir in barley, and this is its first release, Gaia 1.1, an organic single malt. It’s distilled from Irish barley grown by seven different farmers, and matured in a combination of first-fill American oak, and smaller proportions of French oak, virgin American oak, and ex-Vin Doux Naturel (naturally sweet wine) casks.

        Pour & Sip September 2021 Birthday Box

        Pour & Sip

        £29.95

        It's our birthday 🥳 and it's time to party with five great whiskies and extra treats: a Pour & Sip crystal whisky tumbler and some diddy Angostura bitters. (Yep, you guessed it, we'll be mixing up a celebratory Old Fashioned cocktail this month!)

        Deanston Virgin Oak: A cask-finished single malt from this certified organic Highland distillery. It spent the majority of its life in ex-bourbon casks, before it was moved to brand new virgin oak casks from Kentucky. The virgin oak adds spicy flavours here among the creamy, fruity flavours from the maturation. If you were going to select a Scotch whisky to use in an Old Fashioned, you could certainly do worse!

        Irish Single Malt #2 15 Year Old (That Boutique-y Whisky Company): An independent bottling of Irish single malt aged for at least 15 years and bottled at a healthy 50.2%. Seem a total mystery? Well there weren't all that many distilleries producing single malt on the island of Ireland 15 year ago... Enjoy a decadent symphony of creamy malt and honeyed orchard fruits in this Boutique-y treat.

        Nc'nean Organic Single Malt Whisky: Nc'nean is relatively new on the whisky scene, founded in March 2017 by Annabel Thomas. It was the first fully organic modern distillery in Scotland powered by 100% renewable energy, too! Thanks to long mash time, slow fermentation, and unusual yeast strains, there’s bundles of ripe, fresh stone fruit notes to enjoy.

        Wilderness Trail Cask Strength Rye: Where lots of American distillers favour sour mash, Wilderness Trail makes its whiskey with a sweet mash. Fermented at a higher pH, the reason it’s less common is because it’s a little harder to control than its sour counterpart. There’s hallmark rye spice, though thanks to the mash and fermentation, there’s a wonderful creaminess and lots of sweet citrus flavours, too.

        Aber Falls 2nd Release: North Wales’ first whisky distillery in over 100 years released their first expression in May 2021, and it sold out like hot cakes! This shiny new release is matured in ex-Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez sherry casks, as well as ex-bourbon and virgin oak casks. Rather unusually, it’s distilled entirely from Welsh malted barley in a combination of copper pot and stainless steel stills, and is brought down to bottling strength with rock-filtered water from the beautiful Aber Falls waterfall from which the distillery takes its name.

        Pour & Sip Christmas 2021 Box

        Pour & Sip

        £29.95

        We picked these whiskies specially for their festive flavour profiles, so expect range of ex-Port, red wine, and sherry casks bringing heaps of red fruit, seasonal spices, and chocolate notes. Not only that, but this special box comes with a pair of Pour & Sip branded socks, too. Just the thing to get you feeling Christmassy!

        Teeling 13 Year Old Single Grain Red Wine Finish: This is the second (and oldest) Irish single grain from Teeling, made from 95% corn and 5% malted barley. Initially matured in ex-bourbon casks for nine years, it spent another four years in ex-Bordeaux red wine casks.

        Penderyn Portwood: From the first distiller in Wales for over 100 years, Penderyn produces a super light and fruity new make spirit. This particular edition is matured in ex-bourbon casks and then finished in ex-Port barrels, bottled without chill-filtration or colouring.

        Tamdhu Batch Strength (Batch 6): Tamdhu's Batch Strength single malt series is well-loved, and this is the sixth release! This edition spent its days entirely in ex-Oloroso sherry casks before it was bottled up at cask strength, a generous 56.8%.

        Christmas Cake & Dark Chocolate & Medjool Dates & Cinnamon 8 Year Old: From the &Whisky range comes this slightly mysterious single malt. It's sourced from an undisclosed distillery in Scotland’s prolific Speyside region, and was matured for eight years in a decent proportion of first-fill Oloroso sherry octaves, which are much smaller than your average cask – just 50 litres!

        Cragganmore 2008 (bottled 2020) Port Wood Finish - Distillers Edition: The 2008 vintage Distillers Edition single malt from Cragganmore, finished in ex-Port casks before being bottled in 2020. The whisky itself is a subtly smoky, woody, meaty affair, while the cask finish imparts all those jammy red fruits that we know and love from Port.

        Pour & Sip March 2021 Box

        Pour & Sip

        £29.95

        March marks a very exciting month for Pour & Sip, as we present to you our first themed box! We’re celebrating women in whisky with these five tasters, from blenders and distillers to business leaders and ambassadors – find out more about them here. These expressions will take you through taste to Scotland, Ireland, and Kentucky.


        Compass Box Juveniles: A collaborative limited-edition blended malt, bringing together four single malts: fruity Strathmill, herbal Balmenach, waxy Clynelish, and red fruit-forward Glendullan. The whisky is drawn from a combination of refill hogsheads, re-charred hogsheads, and both first-fill and refill sherry butts.


        Roe & Co Irish Whiskey: The first (and so far, only) release from Dublin’s Roe & Co, which marries a classic Irish blend of malt and grain whiskeys. It’s matured exclusively in ex-bourbon casks, a high proportion of which are first-fill. Full of tropical, creamy, and honeyed sweetness. 


        Deanston 18 Year Old: A well-aged expression from Deanston, initially matured in second-fill casks before it was moved to first-fill American oak Kentucky bourbon casks for a shorter finishing period. A waxy, buttery Highland single malt.


        Scallywag: A blended malt from independent bottler Douglas Laing, made with whiskies exclusively from the Speyside region. Malts from the Mortlach, Macallan, and Glenrothes distilleries feature, with 65% drawn from first fill ex-Spanish sherry butts, and the rest from ex-bourbon casks.


        Bulleit Bourbon 10 Year Old: A high-rye bourbon from Bulleit, with a mash bill of 68% corn, 28% rye, and 4% malted barley. It spent its 10 years of ageing in charred American white oak casks, with a rich balance of creamy sweetness and spicier notes.

        Pour & Sip October 2021 Box

        Pour & Sip

        £29.95

        October’s whiskies span well-aged Scotch, redwood-inspired bourbon, and sherry-matured single malt from Denmark. Let’s take a look!

        Craigellachie 17 Year Old: Thanks to worm tub condensers, Craigellachie whisky is often described as ‘meaty’. Matured in equal proportions of ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks, this 17 Year Old balances tropical fruit, smoke, and waxy richness.

        Mosgaard Single Malt Whisky - Pedro Ximénez Cask Finish (Batch 8): From Danish micro-distillery Mosgaard, this is initially aged in new French oak casks, before being transferred to sweet ex-Pedro Ximénez sherry casks for between one to one and a half years before bottling. 

        Black Bottle Island Smoke - Alchemy Series: One of Scotland’s oldest whisky brands, Black Bottle was originally created back in 1879. The Alchemy Series was unveiled in early 2021, with this Island Smoke edition a blend of peated malt and unpeated grain whiskies, 20 components, with a blended malt from 1984 said to be at its core.

        Tomatin 12 Year Old: A classic combination of ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks brings out all sorts of tropical fruits and rich spices in this Speyside single malt.

        Redwood Empire Pipe Dream Bourbon: Named after Pipe Dream, the 14th tallest tree in the world, Pipe Dream is made using a mash bill of 75% corn, 21% rye, and 4% malted barley, so expect a helping of peppery spice peeking out from the layers of vanilla and honey.

        Pour & Sip June 2021 Box

        Pour & Sip

        £29.95

        June’s Pour & Sip box showcases the delights of Scotch (hailing from the Highlands, Lowlands, and Islay), alongside two really quite different rye expressions from Denmark and Maryland – a truly globetrotting selection bursting with flavour!


        Bladnoch Vinaya: A new release from the Lowland Bladnoch Distillery, Vinaya is matured in a duo of first-fill ex-bourbon and first-fill ex-sherry casks – the former highlights those classic Lowland florals and adds bright citrus fruit, while the latter brings richer, chocolatey notes.


        Balblair 15 Year Old: The Highland Balblair Distillery initially matured this 15 Year Old in vanilla-forward, tropical American oak ex-bourbon casks, before it was moved to first-fill Spanish oak butts, imparting spicier, warmer nuances.


        Glenfarclas 15 Year Old: A classic sherry-matured Glenfarclas, with the Speyside whisky boasting all those hallmark juicy, festive flavours – it’s bottled at 46% ABV, for the simple reason that it’s the strength that George Grant’s grandfather preferred it at.


        Sagamore Spirit Signature Rye:
        Sagamore Spirit is bringing the traditional sweeter style of Maryland rye whiskey back, made by blending two batches of whiskey – one made with a mash bill of 95% rye and 5% malted barley, and the other with just 52% rye and the rest mostly corn, which is sweeter – together.


        Stauning El Clásico: Inspired by the Manhattan cocktail, El Clásico is said to be the world's first rye whisky matured in ex-vermouth casks from Denmark’s Stauning Distillery. Made with 51% malted rye and 49% malted barley, it’s initially aged in virgin American oak, and then finished in ex-Spanish vermouth casks.

        August’s hand-picked selection of whiskies treats us to delicious creations from Japan, Scotland, and England, with unusual cask-finishes and unique Scotch galore!

        Compass Box Hedonism: A blended grain from independent bottler Compass Box, Hedonism brings together grain whiskies from a range of Scotch distilleries, resulting in a sumptuously soft, decadent bottling.

        Filey Bay Moscatel Cask Finish: The first cask-finished release from Spirit of Yorkshire Distillery, initially matured in ex-bourbon casks, and finished in Spanish oak hogsheads which previously held Moscatel sherry, known for its floral, honeyed, and citrus-forward flavours.

        The Yamazaki Single Malt Whisky - Distiller’s Reserve: A Japanese single malt matured in a trio of cask types: Bordeaux wine casks, sherry casks, and native Japanese Mizunara oak, the last of which imparts distinctive notes of sandalwood, coconut, and incense.

        Glen Moray Rhum Agricole Cask Finish Project: Originally matured in American oak, this single malt was rested in casks which previously held rhum agricole from Martinique for around 24 months before bottling, bringing a flourish of bright, grassy, tropical freshness to the whisky.

        Benromach Contrasts Peat Smoke: Lesser-spotted smoky Speyside whisky produced using heavily peated barley and matured in first-fill ex-bourbon barrels. Released as part of the distillery’s Contrasts series, smouldering smoky notes sit alongside the bright fruity, creamy flavours imparted from the maturation.

        Pour & Sip November 2021 Box

        Pour & Sip

        £29.95

        We've pulled out all the stops this month – we're taking you from smoky Scotch to fruity English whisky, and even an extra special, Pour & Sip-exclusive Australian single malt!

        Starward Red Wine Barrel - Pour & Sip Exclusive: Our very own Pour & Sip-exclusive single malt from our friends at Starward in Australia! It was distilled in 2017, and matured in a single American oak ex-red wine barrel (number #10361, if you were interested) until it was bottled in June 2021. Just 396 precious bottles of this were drawn from the cask and it’s presented at a generous 55.4%, amplifying all that juicy red fruit from the wine, and toasty vanilla from the American oak itself. 

        anCnoc Peat: Peaty anCnoc (pronounced ‘a-nock’) single malt, released to mark the 125th anniversary of Knockdhu Distillery. Weighing in at 40 PPM (parts per million, a measurement of peatiness), it’s matured in American oak ex-bourbon casks and finished in Spanish oak butts, resulting in a sweet and smoky whisky.

        Highland Park Cask Strength - Release No.2: For the second release in Highland Park’s Cask Strength series, master whisky maker Gordon Motion selected a large proportion of sherry-seasoned European and American oak casks, along with a much smaller amount of ex-bourbon casks to use. The distinctive Highland Park flavours and fragrant smoke are bolstered by the classic fruitcake and spices from the sherry casks.

        Old Perth Cask Strength Blended Malt: A historical blended whisky, Old Perth is made entirely from malt whiskies from various Scotch distilleries, relaunched in 2014 matured entirely from ex-sherry casks. This is the Cask Strength edition, so all of those spicy, earthy, red fruit-forward flavours are presented at 58.6% with a viscous, oily mouthfeel.

        Cotswolds Single Malt Whisky: The first single malt whisky ever distilled in the Cotswold region, this is produced from barley grown in the Cotswolds and is fermented over a very lengthy 90 hours. It’s then aged in a combination of 30% ex-bourbon and 70% STR (shaved, toasted and re-charred) ex-red wine casks, so the bright fruit notes from the fermentation are joined by a flurry of chocolate and dark fruit richness.

        Pour & Sip

        £29.95

        Say hello to July’s Pour & Sip selection, packing in whiskies from Scotland, Tennessee, and Taiwan! From historical blends to shiny new releases, we’re so excited to get stuck into this one.

        Daddy Rack Small Batch Straight Tennessee Whiskey: Made with a mash bill of 80% corn, 10% rye, and 10% malted barley, as well as going through The Lincoln County Process (whereby the spirit is filtered through maple charcoal before it’s filled into cask, as Tennessee whiskey legally has to), Daddy Rack is also maple charcoal-filtered after it’s been in the cask, too. It’s all about the salted popcorn and caramelised sweetness here!

        John Walker & Sons Celebratory Blend: This limited-edition blend was created in 2020 in honour of the brand's 200th anniversary, inspired by John Walker & Sons’ Old Highland Whisky which was first sold back in the 1860s. It also features whiskies from distilleries that were in production at that time, though the exact blend remains a mystery.

        Kavalan Concertmaster - Port Cask Finish: From Taiwan’s King Car Distillery’s Kavalan range, this was released for the Concertmaster series. It’s made with whiskies initially matured in American oak before being finished in a range of Ruby Port, Tawny Port, and vintage Port casks – jammy fruit, dry spices, and wood influence galore.

        Glen Scotia 18 Year Old: This 18 Year Old release spent its first 17 years in a combination of refill ex-bourbon casks and refill American oak hogsheads. Then, Glen Scotia malt master Iain McAlister vatted the two cask types together in first-fill Oloroso sherry casks for a 12-month finishing period. It’s light and creamy, while retaining a rich oiliness and subtle coastal influence.

        Bowmore Vault Edition - Peat Smoke: While this release in Bowmore’s Vault Edition series was made to showcase the distillery’s smoky character, a delicious combination of sea salt and fruity sweetness keeps it balanced. The Atlantic sea spray which washes against the sea-facing wall of the maturation warehouse helps add a savoury maritime complexity to the whisky slumbering inside.

        £29.95

        We’re taking our taste buds to Scotland, India, Japan, and back to Scotland in this Pour & Sip box. With smoky expressions and lighter floral blends, this is great to explore the many styles of whisky. Let’s get stuck in!


      • Kilchoman Machir Bay Cask Strength: A Iimited-edition single malt from Islay’s Kilchoman distillery, matured in a combination of ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks and bottled up at a burly 58.6% ABV. Lots of classic Islay peat to enjoy, balanced by vibrant citrus and herbaceous notes.

      • Amrut Fusion: This blend from Amrut in India gets its name from the combination of Indian-grown barley and peated Scottish barley that goes into it! It’s matured in the warmer Indian climate, needing less time in the cask than its Scottish counterparts. Fresh fruit, gentle smoke, and spices galore! 

      • Arran Port Cask Finish: A single malt from the Isle of Arran off the west coast of Scotland, first launched in 2010. It spent around eight years in American oak before it was moved to ex-Port casks for its finishing period, imparting creamy sweetness and jammy fruit, respectively, balanced by the savoury nature of the Island whisky itself. 

      • Mars Maltage Cosmo: An intriguing blended malt from the Mars Shinshu distillery, which is blended and bottled at the site in Japan – though features malts from undisclosed Scottish distilleries alongside a good proportion of Japanese whisky. Lots of light, delicate florals and fruity notes to enjoy! 

      • Tomintoul Cigar Malt: A classic sherried Speyside whisky from Tomintoul, which has taken on the affectionate nickname ‘the gentle dram’ thanks to its mellow flavour profile. Some rarely-seen peated Tomintoul single malt has been added to this expression, with all the malts used either fully matured or finished in Spanish Oloroso sherry butts.

        Pour & Sip

        £29.95

        New year, new whiskies! We can’t wait to get stuck into another year of sharing our favourite whiskies with you all. So, without further ado, let’s see what we’ve got for you this month. From a Pour & Sip-exclusive Scotch to a New Zealand single malt, it’s a pretty awesome selection, if we may say so ourselves.

        Compass Box Glasgow Blend Single Marrying Cask - Pour & Sip Exclusive: Pour & Sip Exclusive alert! This single cask blend is made up predominantly of Craigellachie malt and Cameronbridge grain whiskies, with smaller proportions of Clynelish and Laphroaig, and a Highland malt blend in support. Heavily-toasted French oak, first-fill and refill ex-bourbon barrels and hogsheads, and ex-sherry butts are among the cask maturations, with all the whiskies married in an ex-Clynelish cask for 15 months before bottling in August 2021. Hallmark waxy, floral notes from Clynelish sit among ripe fruits, French oak spices, and savoury nuances. 

        The Cardrona Growing Wings Solera - Sherry & Bourbon Cask: A cask strength single malt from Cardrona Distillery in New Zealand, matured in a combination of ex-Oloroso sherry and ex-bourbon casks. The whisky itself is packed with oily nuts and juicy dried from the sherry cask, along with creamier vanilla notes from the bourbon cask.

        Tobermory 12 Year Old: From Tobermory Distillery on Scotland’s Isle of Mull comes this fabulous 12-year-old single malt. First released in early 2019, it was launched in celebration of the distillery returning to life after a two-year break! It’s matured exclusively in American oak casks before being bottled up, full of ripe orchard fruits, creamy malt, and a hint of coastal salinity. 

        Jura The Loch: A spicy single malt from the wonderful Jura distillery, found on the Scottish island of the same name 60 miles from the mainland. It’s named The Loch after the distillery’s all-important water source, Market Loch, found 1,000 feet above sea level. The whisky itself is a blend of peated and unpeated spirits, matured in both American white oak ex-bourbon barrels and casks which previously held 30-year-old Pedro Ximénez sherry. 

        Loch Lomond Peated Single Grain: Based in the Highlands, Loch Lomond has one of the most unique still set-ups in the whole of Scotland. It currently boasts three different still set-ups, with the original Lomond stills (a combination of pot and column stills), traditional pot stills, and Coffey column stills, giving it the option to produce a plethora of different spirits. This particular bottling is produced using heavily-peated malted barley distilled in a Coffey still, and matured in a combination of first and refill American oak ex-bourbon casks, adding a bundle of ripe fruit and sweet creamy notes to the smoky spirit.
