Our pack incudes a curated selection of whiskies that have been matured in casks that were once used to hold port. Doing this adds a special complexity when used to mature whisky.
The most important characters of a malt whisky develop during the ageing process. The type of oak and seasoning / former contents are front and centre. Sometimes various casks are used, at the same time, or sequentially.
Ex-port casks tend to be used to finish whisky maturation and contribute the rich tastes of plum, blackberry, sultanas, redcurrant, dried apple, oak, cranberry & dark chocolate. Of course there are many types of port. Oak can be European or French.
