We are delighted to announce the release of the 2 remaining expressions in our Straight from The Cask series. The 3rd edition, a beautiful and delicate Sauternes cask finish accompanied be the 4th and final whiskey cask to be disgorged, A French oak barrel once playing host to a 5-year-old rum in Barbados. The Blenders Cut spent 90 days soaking up all the flavors the Caribbean had to offer. Both expressions have an abundance of flavour, and yet completely different to one another. The addition of water to the Whiskey will bring some of those peat notes back to life too. Truly mouthwatering.
