Ex-American Oak Bourbon Cask

Ex-American Oak Bourbon Cask

£59.50

70cl, 46% ABV

Three Year Old American Bourbon Cask Whisky

Distilled in our beautiful copper still on the edge of Dartmoor National Park, this single malt whisky has aged for three years in American Oak Bourbon barrels to give it its distinctive flavour and colour.

We have been guided by our very experienced Master Distiller, Frank McHardy. He has over 50 years experience in the whisky industry and has been listed in the Whisky Hall of Fame.

This is what Frank had to say about our Bourbon cask expression:

‘Here the spirit has taken on typical golden colour from the bourbon cask.

On the nose there are vanilla aroma’s as you would expect from a bourbon cask.

There are toffee notes on the pallet, and crème brule, and marsh mallow.

It is very sweet to the taste, almost honeyed.’

The American Bourbon Cask

 

This barrel is imported from a Bourbon distillery in America. The law in America dictates that Bourbon barrels can only be used once for the production of Bourbon, therefore, there is a glut of ex-Bourbon barrels in need of another life elsewhere in the drinks industry. This is why many whisky distilleries in Scotland and England buy Bourbon barrels to mature their whisky in. Some of the barrels we use are from some of the most well-known Bourbon whisky brands in America. It is also becoming more popular for beer breweries to experiment and age their beer in ex-American bourbon barrels.

Contrary to popular belief, Bourbon can actually be made anywhere in the United States, but it is heavily associated with the American South and Kentucky in particular. For Bourbon to be sold in the United States it must be produced in the country from at least 51% corn and stored in a new container of charred oak - which then becomes our special Bourbon casks.

"I'm not supposed to be drinking for the next few months but had to have a small glass of this when it turned up. This from Dartmoor Whisky Distillery is up there and it may even be the finest young whisky I've ever had!"

"Extremely pleased to receive one of the first bottles of this for my birthday - it's a really smooth whisky with a great flavour - must be the Dartmoor water!"
