A very special limited release bottling released for the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton in April 2011. St. George's distillery manager David Fitt has selected an eclectic range of casks for this bottling, including some stock finished in rum or port casks.
A great change of pace for Teerenpeli, their first sherry matured whisky. The Finnish brewery and distillery has only been producing whisky for a few years, but they've already shown that they can produce a great dram.
Described as both 'fun and serious', St. George's distillery's dragon-themed English malt whisky Chapter 13 was launched at 1pm on Friday 13th September 2013. Bottled at 49% (because 4+9=13), this is an intensely-flavoured sweet and spicy whisky with one of the coolest labels you'll see.
This 8th edition in Mackmyra's Special series is called Handplockat, hand picked, in honour of the wine makers who carefully chose the grapes to make the sauternes that previously rested in the casks used to mature the whisky.
Kadhambam means 'mixture' or 'combination', and this Amrut certainly lives up to its name: a vatting of normal and peated Amrut that started life in ex-Oloroso casks before being transferred first into brandy casks, then into rum casks (both the rum and brandy having been produced at Amrut also). A curious admixture, you might say - but it works. This is a unique and thrilling whisky - but sadly we've only got a handful of bottles, so it's MAXIMUM 1 BOTTLE PER CUSTOMER.
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.
This is Millstone's 10 years old aged in French Oak. However this cask was actually bottled at 13 and a half years old. This is made at Zuidam's distillery in Baarle-Nassau, where they also produce, rum, genever and liqueurs.
The 2004 vintage of Teerenpeli's 8 year old. Teerenpeli distillery was founded in 2002 in Lahti, Finland. Despite being a distillery in its infancy, the future looks very promising, with the bottlings so far having been very well received.
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.
More woody experimentation from the folks at Amrut, maturing the Portonova first in a combination of new american oak and ex-bourbon barrels, then moving it to refill port pipes and then back into ex-bourbon casks. It combines the traditional vanilla and coconut flavours with the rich fruit you'd expect from a port cask for an interesting mix.
Please note this is limited to 1 bottle per customer
A single cask 2002 vintage (millésime) release from Armorik, produced at the Warenghem distillery in Brittany. The first 10 year old to be released by the distillery, this was aged in a cask which was previously used for oloroso sherry. Whisky Bible Awards 2014: 92 Points
A 12 year old whiskey from Zuidam, bottled under the Millstone label, the name for their Dutch single malt whisky. Matured for 12 years in sherry casks, this is one of Zuidam's first whiskies that takes on the Scots on their home turf.
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.
