It's our birthday 🥳 and it's time to party with five great whiskies and extra treats: a Pour & Sip crystal whisky tumbler and some diddy Angostura bitters. (Yep, you guessed it, we'll be mixing up a celebratory Old Fashioned cocktail this month!)
Deanston Virgin Oak: A cask-finished single malt from this certified organic Highland distillery. It spent the majority of its life in ex-bourbon casks, before it was moved to brand new virgin oak casks from Kentucky. The virgin oak adds spicy flavours here among the creamy, fruity flavours from the maturation. If you were going to select a Scotch whisky to use in an Old Fashioned, you could certainly do worse!
Irish Single Malt #2 15 Year Old (That Boutique-y Whisky Company): An independent bottling of Irish single malt aged for at least 15 years and bottled at a healthy 50.2%. Seem a total mystery? Well there weren't all that many distilleries producing single malt on the island of Ireland 15 year ago... Enjoy a decadent symphony of creamy malt and honeyed orchard fruits in this Boutique-y treat.
Nc'nean Organic Single Malt Whisky: Nc'nean is relatively new on the whisky scene, founded in March 2017 by Annabel Thomas. It was the first fully organic modern distillery in Scotland powered by 100% renewable energy, too! Thanks to long mash time, slow fermentation, and unusual yeast strains, there’s bundles of ripe, fresh stone fruit notes to enjoy.
Wilderness Trail Cask Strength Rye: Where lots of American distillers favour sour mash, Wilderness Trail makes its whiskey with a sweet mash. Fermented at a higher pH, the reason it’s less common is because it’s a little harder to control than its sour counterpart. There’s hallmark rye spice, though thanks to the mash and fermentation, there’s a wonderful creaminess and lots of sweet citrus flavours, too.
Aber Falls 2nd Release: North Wales’ first whisky distillery in over 100 years released their first expression in May 2021, and it sold out like hot cakes! This shiny new release is matured in ex-Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez sherry casks, as well as ex-bourbon and virgin oak casks. Rather unusually, it’s distilled entirely from Welsh malted barley in a combination of copper pot and stainless steel stills, and is brought down to bottling strength with rock-filtered water from the beautiful Aber Falls waterfall from which the distillery takes its name.
