A hefty American single malt spirit aged less than 30 days, Wasmund's is double-distilled at the Copper Fox distillery in Virginia from 100% hand-malted barley in small copper potstills. The malting notes for this are 'Light Smoke. 60% Applewood, 40% Cherrywood'.
White Rhino Rye is the first release from Vulson, a collaboration between Domaine des Hautes Glaces in the French Alps and Xavier Padovani of Experimental Cocktail Club. Made from organic rye, grown, malted and distilled on site, it's sweet, fruity and spicy.
A great idea from the folks at Wasmund's - a 2 litre new charred oak cask, two 70cl bottles of their single malt spirit and the challenge of maturing your own 'whisky'. It'll pick up flavour quickly in a barrel this small so it's perfect for experimentation.
Sweden's Box have created the Advanced Master Class series. The first 'course' contains five 20cl bottles of the same spirit, each with a different toasting level to highlight the effect this has on the finished whisky. Further courses are planned including different yeasts and warehouse temperatures.
