A 2001 vintage Aberlour that has been exclusively matured in casks made from Quercus Alba - American White Oak. This steps away from the distillery's usual sherried style, emphasising coconut and vanilla from the cask and fruit from the spirit.
A single cask release from Lowland independent distillery Bladnoch, distilled in 2001 and aged for 11 years in sherry butt #281. This is even more different to regular Bladnoch by being lightly peated, for a touch of smoke with the sherry cask flavours.
A vatting of seven first-fill bourbon casks of 2001 Benromach bottled at full strength towards the end of 2010. Kudos to owners G&M for bottling when the whisky's ready rather than waiting until it was a 10yo.
A 2001 vintage Edradour from their Straight from the Cask range, finished in a port cask giving it a rich red colour and a kick of spice. Distilled on 23rd January 2001, matured in a hogshead until 10th December 2010 and then finished in a pipe until bottling on 9th January 2013.
The Resurrection Dram from Bruichladdich is finally here, its 24000 bottles constructed entirely from 7 year-old 10ppm bourbon-matured distillate made by Jim McEwan in 2001 after the new regime came to power.
Millstone is the single malt whisky made by the remarkably versatile Zuidam distillery in the Netherlands. The malt is aged for a minimum of five years in small American white oak barrels, plus ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks.
