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 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 May 2021 Box

    Pour & Sip

    £24.95Regular price

    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.

    In this Pour & Sip box we’ve got the chance to explore grain and malt whiskies in all their glory, as well as whisky from Tennessee and even some cask strength Scotch from up in Orkney! Sound good? You can find out more here:

    • 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 September 2021 Birthday Box

      Pour & Sip

      £24.95Regular price

      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 April 2021 Box

      Pour & Sip

      £24.95Regular price

      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 Christmas 2021 Box

      Pour & Sip

      £24.95Regular price

      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

      £24.95Regular price

      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.

      £29.95Regular price

      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.

      Pour & Sip

      £29.95Regular price

      With International Women’s Day and St. Patrick’s Day falling in March, we couldn’t pick just one to celebrate in this month's Pour & Sip box – so we’ve gone and picked five excellent whiskies that nod to both days! 

      J.J. Corry Lasóg - Pour & Sip Exclusive: ​​It’s our very own exclusive whiskey from our friends over at J.J. Corry in Ireland! Called Lasóg, it's a blend of 60% well-aged malt and 40% grain Irish whiskeys, with the grain bringing a delicate vanilla-forward sweetness to the juicy barley notes.

      Aberfeldy 16 Year Old: From Aberfeldy's core range, this single malt is finished in first-fill ex-Oloroso sherry casks, bringing heaps of festive dried fruits and spices to the whisky. 

      Dingle Single Malt: Dingle Distillery’s first core whiskey, it's triple distilled and then matured in a combination of ex-Pedro Ximénez sherry and ex-bourbon casks, in proportions of 61% and 39% respectively. It’s brought down to bottling strength with local water from a 240-feet well, and presented at 46.3%. 

      Benriach The Smoky Twelve: Based in Speyside, Benriach only peats its malt for a brief period each year, called ‘smoke season’. The smoke is full of sweeter, aromatic notes compared to the meaty, savoury smokiness of the Islands. The Smoky Twelve is a blend of peated and unpeated malts drawn from a trio of cask types: ex-bourbon, ex-sherry, and ex-Marsala wine casks. 

      Brenne Estate Cask French Single Malt Whisky: Estate Cask is made with local Cognac-grown malted barley. The whisky is then initially matured in French Limousin oak casks before it’s moved to ex-Cognac casks for a finishing period – Brenne claims that it was the first single malt in the world to be aged exclusively in these two cask types.

      £24.95Regular price

      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 April 2022 Box

      Pour & Sip

      £29.95Regular price

      April brings with it another five globe-trotting whiskies, from Scotland's Highlands, the Isle of Skye, Israel, Finland, and Canada! There's a whole load of different cask types to enjoy among the whiskies, so let's get stuck in.

      Milk & Honey Apex - Pomegranate Wine Cask Finish: The Apex series from the Milk & Honey distillery in Tel Aviv is all about innovation and exceptional casks – as such, this whisky was initially matured in ex-bourbon casks before a six-month finishing period in casks which previously held Israeli pomegranate wine.

      Glenfarclas 105: A magnificent cask strength Highlander, Glenfarclas 105 was first released all the way back in 1968 when Glenfarclas was the first distillery to release a cask strength single malt. It's aged in a combination of both ex-sherry and ex-bourbon casks, bottled at a burly 60%.

      Talisker Port Ruighe: From Scotland’s stunning Isle of Skye comes this rich, oily Talisker single malt. Port Ruighe (pronounced 'Portree') is named after the Gaelic spelling of the once bustling trading port on the island. After a maturation in a combination of ex-bourbon, refill European oak, and heavily-charred casks, this single malt was appropriately finished in ex-Port casks.

      Teerenpeli 5 Year Old (That Boutique-y Whisky Company): It’s That Boutique-y Whisky Company’s first ever Teerenpeli bottling from Finland. It's aged for five years in Oloroso sherry casks housed in sea containers sat outside the distillery which are subject to some crazy temperature fluctuations, from -35°C to +30°C.

      Pike Creek 10 Year Old: Pike Creek 10 Year Old is a Canadian whisky finished in ex-rum barrels. While there is a good proportion of rye in the mash bill, there's some corn in here too, and it's matured in warehouses without any climate control, which means loads of spirit and wood interaction.

      It's our second birthday, and we can't wait to celebrate with you with yet another stellar selection of whiskies! Five of them, as always, and this month they’re from all over Scotland, with a special appearance from Tennessee, too.

      Daddy Rack 4 Year Old Cask Strength (barrel 06): A cask strength Tennessee whiskey here from Daddy Rack, produced from a mash bill of corn (80%), rye (10%), and malted barley (10%) and drawn from barrel number 6, yielding just 228 bottles. Precious stuff!
      Coachbuilt Whisky: 
      Created by Formula One racing driver Jenson Button and spirits expert George Koutsakis, this blend is made with spirits from each of Scotland’s five whisky-producing regions, married together in ex-sherry casks.
      Nc'nean Huntress 2022: 
      From the 100% renewable Nc’Nean distillery, Huntress is made with a combination of three yeasts, one of which is usually used for rum instead of whisky, meaning there’s loads of tropical fruit flavours in here. 
      The Glenrothes 12 Year Old - Soleo Collection: 
      A sherry cask-focused single malt from Glenrothes, where distillation takes place in very tall stills, meaning there’s more reflux (when spirit falls back down the still neck and is then re-distilled), making for a complex, light spirit that harmonises with sherry casks.
      Isle of Raasay Single Malt: 
      The first core release from Isle of Raasay which takes inspiration from older styles of Hebridean single malts, so is lightly smoky thanks to a blend of both peated (using floral Highland peat) and unpeated spirits, aged in rye whiskey, chinkapin oak, and red wine casks.

      Pour & Sip July 2022 Box

      Pour & Sip

      £29.95

      We love a themed box, and know you do too! With the month of July comes a celebration that we can’t ignore – of course we’re talking about the 4th of July, American Independence Day. The country has so much to offer in terms of whiskey (way more than just bourbon), but in this box we thought we’d spotlight some American cask finishes and oak varieties on other types of whiskies, too. 

      Westland American Oak: Inspired by Pacific North West beer culture, made using five different types of barley and Belgian Saison brewer’s yeast, and matured in new American oak and first-fill ex-bourbon casks. Thanks to the combination of malt varieties, yeast, and casks, it’s a rich whiskey full of chocolate, dry oak, and tart fruit.

      FEW Bourbon: The flagship bourbon from the Illinois-based distillery, produced from a mash bill of 70% corn, 20% rye, and 10% malt, aged in barrels made from charred Minnesota white oak. The distillery prides itself on being grain to glass, producing all of its whiskey under its own roof.

      Peerless Small Batch Rye: The first release of a whiskey distilled under the Peerless label since Prohibition, thought doesn’t go too heavy on the signature grain, so while it showcases all the hallmarks of a classic rye, with warming spices and just a touch of herbaceousness, it also allows the buttery, sweet notes from the corn in the mash bill to shine.

      Jura 14 Year Old American Rye Cask: A hot-off-the-press release from Jura, this is a pretty unusual Scotch whisky, finished in casks which previously held American rye whiskey for around six months. The cask recipe imparts balanced layers of vanilla, caramel, and tropical fruit, with the rye whiskey in particular adding notes of cinnamon, chocolate, and honey.

      Balvenie 12 Year Old - The Sweet Toast of American Oak: The introductory release from the Balvenie Stories series, which takes Balvenie's ex-bourbon oak aged whisky  and finishes it in deeply-toasted virgin oak barrels from Kelvin Cooperage in Louisville, Kentucky.

      Pour & Sip October 2022 Box

      Pour & Sip

      £29.95

      This month we're tasting our way through Scotland, England, and even Finland, with some unusual smoke, funky fermentation, and local grains taking the spotlight.

      GlenWyvis Single Malt 2018 Batch 02/18: Distilled entirely from local Concerto barley, this was then filled into a combination of 23 casks: 60% first-fill ex-Tennessee whisky, 25% first-fill ex-oloroso sherry, and 15% refill hogshead casks, bringing a harmony of creamy sweetness, dried fruit, and spices.

      Tomatin 14 Year Old Port Wood Finish: A rich, cask-finished Highland single malt initially matured in ex-bourbon barrels, before being moved to casks which previously held tawny Port for around 50 years for a one-year finishing period, balancing between spices, fresh red fruit, and that hallmark gently floral, honeyed Highland character.

      Fettercairn 12 Year Old: Fettercairn is known for its tropical fruit flavours found in its new make, and this release was created specifically to embody those tropical characters, with heaps of mango, pineapple, and even coconut making themselves known, further bolstered by over a decade in American oak ex-bourbon casks.

      Kyrö Wood Smoke Malt Rye Whisky: A delicately smoky malted rye whisky from Finland made entirely with malted Finnish rye smoked with alder wood, which is then aged in a combination of French oak, new American oak, and ex-bourbon casks. While the alder smoke brings a delicate, yet savoury smokiness to the spirit, the cask recipe balances that with peppery spice, and plenty of caramel and vanilla sweetness.

      Masthouse Grain Whisky: From Kent’s Copper Rivet Distillery, the team behind Masthouse is all about provenance and transparency: this Grain Whisky is made with barley, wheat, and rye, goes through a long fermentation, and is distilled in a combination of pot and column stills. A gorgeous blend of creamy, nutty, herbal, and spicy flavours thanks to the trio of grains.

      Pour & Sip

      £29.95

      August's Pour & Sip box is packing whiskies from new and old distilleries across Scotland and Japan, as well as a mysterious Islay single malt. Get ready for a range of different cask types too, and a few fermentation-focused delights. Let's get stuck in!

      Lochlea Our Barley: The first ever core release from Lochlea, which benefits from a lengthy fermentation and a maturation in a combination of ex-bourbon, ex-sherry, and STR (shaved, toasted, and re-charred) casks.

      Smokehead Rum Rebel: An Islay single malt finished in ex-Caribbean rum casks, the savoury, smoky notes from the whisky base pair brilliantly with the sweetness of the rum cask, which brings a very healthy dose of tropical fruit and sweetness to the spirit.

      Glencadam 13 Year Old 2008 Réserve de Sauternes: Initially matured in American oak ex-bourbon casks before being moved to casks which previously held sweet Sauternes dessert wine, this single malt is full of stone fruits, tropical fruit, and butterscotch flavours.

      Lindores Abbey Single Cask: Distilled in May 2018 entirely from Fife barley, this single malt was filled into the distillery’s 386th cask, an ex-bourbon barrel from Kentucky’s Old Forester. It was drawn from the cask in June 2022, with a yield of just 246 bottles – a sweet, fruit-forward, and gently creamy spirit.

      Nikka Coffey Malt Whisky: Nothing to do with your morning brew, this Japanese whisky is distilled in a Coffey still, produced entirely from malted barley at Nikka’s Miyagikyo distillery. The malt is allowed to shine through in this release, full of notes of baked goods, woody spices, and citrus fruits.
