This month we're tasting our way through Scotland, England, and even Finland, with some unusual smoke, funky fermentation, and local grains taking the spotlight.
GlenWyvis Single Malt 2018 Batch 02/18: Distilled entirely from local Concerto barley, this was then filled into a combination of 23 casks: 60% first-fill ex-Tennessee whisky, 25% first-fill ex-oloroso sherry, and 15% refill hogshead casks, bringing a harmony of creamy sweetness, dried fruit, and spices.
Tomatin 14 Year Old Port Wood Finish: A rich, cask-finished Highland single malt initially matured in ex-bourbon barrels, before being moved to casks which previously held tawny Port for around 50 years for a one-year finishing period, balancing between spices, fresh red fruit, and that hallmark gently floral, honeyed Highland character.
Fettercairn 12 Year Old: Fettercairn is known for its tropical fruit flavours found in its new make, and this release was created specifically to embody those tropical characters, with heaps of mango, pineapple, and even coconut making themselves known, further bolstered by over a decade in American oak ex-bourbon casks.
Kyrö Wood Smoke Malt Rye Whisky: A delicately smoky malted rye whisky from Finland made entirely with malted Finnish rye smoked with alder wood, which is then aged in a combination of French oak, new American oak, and ex-bourbon casks. While the alder smoke brings a delicate, yet savoury smokiness to the spirit, the cask recipe balances that with peppery spice, and plenty of caramel and vanilla sweetness.
Masthouse Grain Whisky: From Kent’s Copper Rivet Distillery, the team behind Masthouse is all about provenance and transparency: this Grain Whisky is made with barley, wheat, and rye, goes through a long fermentation, and is distilled in a combination of pot and column stills. A gorgeous blend of creamy, nutty, herbal, and spicy flavours thanks to the trio of grains.
