The fad for distilleries releasing their new make spirit continues, this time in the form of Buffalo Trace's 'White Dog', the affectionate name given to unaged whiskey. Competitively-priced and attractively packaged, we reckon that Buffalo Trace's extra style credentials could well see this becoming a hit cocktail ingredient. Please note that this is a 37.5cl bottle
Spirit of Lewis is single malt spirit from the Abhainn Dearg distillery on the Isle of Lewis. Bottled from a single cask at 46%, Spirit of Lewis has been aged for less than three years and therefore cannot legally be called whisky.
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'.
A set of three half bottles of white dog (unmatured whiskey) show-casing Buffalo Trace's 3 main spirit recipes. Along with the already released Mash #1 there is also Wheated Mash, used to make WL Weller and Pappy Van Winkle, and Rye Mash, used to make Sazerac. An interesting insight into the development of whiskey in the cask and an increasingly popular cocktail ingredient.
A rare bottle of new spirit from Kilchoman. Bottled at only 2 years old it can't be called whisky. Bottled in 2008, this was an early example of what to expect from the new distillery and was already showing great potential.
