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.
