Though February may be a shorter month, we've still got five incredible whiskies lined up to enjoy throughout its 28 days. This time, we're taking your taste buds from the Scottish Highlands and island of Islay, to England, Japan, and Kentucky. It's quite the flavour journey...
Four Roses Single Barrel 100 Proof: Four Roses boasts five yeast strains and two separate mash bills (named ‘B’ and ‘E’), giving it 10 different bourbon recipes to experiment with. However, its Single Barrel releases always use the same recipe using mash bill ‘B’, with 60% corn, 35% rye, and 5% malted barley.
Hibiki Japanese Harmony: Harmony is a well-balanced blended whisky from the Hibiki range of Japanese whisky, featuring malt whiskies from the Yamazaki and Hakushu distilleries, as well as grain whisky from the Chita distillery. The whiskies are drawn from five different cask types, including American white oak, native Japanese Mizunara oak, and ex-sherry casks, full of honeyed fruits, florals, and fragrant wood.
The One Moscatel Cask Finished: A fruity, honeyed delight from The Lakes Distillery, The One is a blend of grain and malt Scotch whiskies from Speyside and Islay, though at its heart is The Lakes’ own single malt. Finished in ex-Moscatel casks, this whisky has taken on an abundance of chocolate and stone fruit flavours.
The Glenturret 10 Year Old Peat Smoked (2021 Release): The Glenturret’s annual 10 Year Old Peat Smoke release is a delicious nod to the distillery’s peaty history. While today most of its production is unpeated, this limited release features a splash of peated spirit too, matured in both first-fill and second-fill European and American oak casks – expect rich smoke alongside soft fruits and florals.
Bunnahabhain 12 Year Old Cask Strength - 2021 Edition: The 2021 edition of Bunnahabhain's annual, well-sherried 12 Year Old Cask Strength release. The Islay distillery wanted to recreate visitor cask strength tastings of its beloved core 12 Year Old whisky in the distillery’s iconic Warehouse 9, so now you don’t need to make the pilgrimage to the Scottish Islands to do so!
