The limited edition cask strength edition of The English Whisky Company's award winning Chapter 11. Aged for a little over 3 years and then bottled at full proof this is a punchy young whisky which has aged very well.
A historic moment: TWE's first Finnish whisky! Teerenpeli distillery was founded in 2002 at the brewery of the same name in Lahti, Finland, and the name means 'flirtation' or 'dalliance'. We tried this 8yo at Whisky Live and were knocked out at how balanced and tasty it was - this is a very well-made whisky and is destined to be a huge hit.
The debut release from The New Zealand Malt Whisky Company, the DoubleWood 10 year old was distilled at closed Willowbank in Dunedin on the South Island before being matured for 6 years in American oak and finished for 4 in French oak barrels formerly used to hold red wine.
A slightly strange experiment from Kavalan, using first fill American wine casks for maturation after planing and retoasting the wood. Measured wine influence with some great classic American oak flavours.
A single cask whisky from Sullivan's Cove, a great Australian distillery in Tasmania, that spent the whole of its maturation in a Bourbon cask, eschewing some of the more esoteric woods that often pop up in Australian whisky.
A single cask bottling of whisky from Tasmania's Lark distillery. This is from cask #205 and was distilled by Kristy Lark, daughter of distillery founder Bill, distillery manager and former master distiller.
A 21 year old New Zealand whisky distilled at Willowbank on the South Island. The bottle features a picture of the Water of Leith distillery, which became the site of Willowbank, which itself was also closed and has since been demolished.
The pinnacle of Kavalan's early production - a whisky matured in Fino sherry casks, rather than the more usual darker sherry styles. Rich with more fresh fruit than you might expect from a sherried whisky.
