We've pulled out all the stops this month – we're taking you from smoky Scotch to fruity English whisky, and even an extra special, Pour & Sip-exclusive Australian single malt!
Starward Red Wine Barrel - Pour & Sip Exclusive: Our very own Pour & Sip-exclusive single malt from our friends at Starward in Australia! It was distilled in 2017, and matured in a single American oak ex-red wine barrel (number #10361, if you were interested) until it was bottled in June 2021. Just 396 precious bottles of this were drawn from the cask and it’s presented at a generous 55.4%, amplifying all that juicy red fruit from the wine, and toasty vanilla from the American oak itself.
anCnoc Peat: Peaty anCnoc (pronounced ‘a-nock’) single malt, released to mark the 125th anniversary of Knockdhu Distillery. Weighing in at 40 PPM (parts per million, a measurement of peatiness), it’s matured in American oak ex-bourbon casks and finished in Spanish oak butts, resulting in a sweet and smoky whisky.
Highland Park Cask Strength - Release No.2: For the second release in Highland Park’s Cask Strength series, master whisky maker Gordon Motion selected a large proportion of sherry-seasoned European and American oak casks, along with a much smaller amount of ex-bourbon casks to use. The distinctive Highland Park flavours and fragrant smoke are bolstered by the classic fruitcake and spices from the sherry casks.
Old Perth Cask Strength Blended Malt: A historical blended whisky, Old Perth is made entirely from malt whiskies from various Scotch distilleries, relaunched in 2014 matured entirely from ex-sherry casks. This is the Cask Strength edition, so all of those spicy, earthy, red fruit-forward flavours are presented at 58.6% with a viscous, oily mouthfeel.
Cotswolds Single Malt Whisky: The first single malt whisky ever distilled in the Cotswold region, this is produced from barley grown in the Cotswolds and is fermented over a very lengthy 90 hours. It’s then aged in a combination of 30% ex-bourbon and 70% STR (shaved, toasted and re-charred) ex-red wine casks, so the bright fruit notes from the fermentation are joined by a flurry of chocolate and dark fruit richness.
