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.
