Time to dive into April's Pour & Sip selection, with some well-aged whiskies in here and a mouthwateringly diverse range of flavours from across Scotland, Wales, and even South Africa!
Old Pulteney Pineau des Charentes - Coastal Series (The Maritime Malt): This edition began its life in bourbon casks before being transferred to French oak barrels from the oceanic Charente region just north of Bordeaux which previously held Pineau des Charentes, a rare French aperitif. The result is a light and fruity single malt with a savoury, maritime backbone reminding us of its coastal home.
Three Ships 12 Year Old: A slightly smoky South African single malt from the James Sedgwick Distillery, released as part of the Three Ships range. The barley used is peated to around 30 PPM, and once distilled is filled into a high proportion of small refill American oak casks.
Penderyn Rich Oak: Initially a limited edition, Rich Oak is now a permanent fixture in the range, matured in both bourbon and shaved, toasted, and re-charred (STR) wine casks. STR was pioneered by the late Dr. Jim Swan, who was one of the founders of Penderyn and served as master blender, and in the process the casks are rejuvenated, allowing the wood to impart more flavour to the whisky.
anCnoc 18 Year Old: From Knockdhu distillery comes this well-aged 18-year-old single malt, with the spirit's fruity, citrusy, honeyed flavour bolstered by a combination of Spanish oak sherry casks and American oak bourbon barrels, bringing a wealth of spicy, chocolatey notes and tropical, sweeter flavours respectively.
Wormtub 10 Year Old – Batch 2: This 10-year-old single malt was produced at a mystery Speyside distillery that uses old-school wormtub condensers, and was reracked into first-fill sherry casks before being bottled at cask strength without any colour added whatsoever, packed full of meatiness, tangy sherried fruit, and a hefty helping of spices.
