With January safely in the bag, it's definitely time to announce three new batches of whisky, and it's a one, two and three with a brand new label for our first ever Blended Malt #4, a second batch from The English Whisky Company and a third batch from Tormore.
Another brilliant new label from Emily for our first batch of Blended Malt #4. Following on from our Blended Malts #1 and #3 the label features our terrific teaspoon in the guise of Superspoon! That's right, it's a secret teaspooned malt, a young and feisty 6 Year Old bottled at 53.6% abv. There are just 625 bottles for this batch, but can you tell which distillery from this label? No, not at all, because there's not even the slightest of clues hidden here, or is there? We shalln't tell! Expect to find cream soda, dessert wine grapes and some bramley apple tartness on the palate. There's a hot peppery kick but it quickly sweetens with vanilla buttercream.
Next up is our second batch from The English Whisky Company. The Norfolk distillery turned eleven at the end of December, and it has been growing in stature year by year, leading the charge of whisky distilleries in England's green and pleasant land. Our latest batch is an 8 Year Old release of just 845 bottles, and you can expect a fruity smoke bomb from this bottling! After the initial hit of sooty smoke there are sweet white grapes with lemon zest, but they’re quickly engulfed in a sweet peaty smoke while hints of butterscotch mints follow.
It's been sometime since our last batch from Speyside's Tormore distillery, almost 3 years to be precise, but we're sure our third batch, a 21 Year Old release, will be well worth the wait. Just 149 bottles of this elegant single malt. With notes of baked apples, meadow grasses and vanilla creams on the nose, the palate is fresh and zesty. Glorious Tormorious!
