Ohishi Whisky Sakura Cask Finish (Japan) 43% abv….$74.99
The Sakura (Cherry Blossom) is locally grown in Kumamoto close to the distillery.
The whisky is matured in Brandy and Sherry casks and then finished in the Sakura casks for at least one full year.
The Sakura gives a rich color and soft Oak spice influence to the whisky.
A great example of Japanese terroir, this whisky is made with locally grown rice, is locally distilled, matured, and finally finished in the locally grown Oak barrels.
M&H Elements Red Wine Single Malt Whisky (Israel) 46% abv…$56.99
Ex-red wine casks that were sourced from Israel’s finest wineries were picked for this part of the Elements trilogy. The Mediterranean’s climate, variety of soil types, hot sunny days and cool nights bring a spicy and unique flavor to Israeli wine – and in turn, our casks. The wine casks used in the Elements Red Wine are a celebration of local terroir, curating a floral single malt with notes of raisins.
Gouden Carolus Single Malt Whisky (Belgium) 46% abv...$56.99
Gouden Carolus Single Malt is a refined whisky distilled from the mash of Gouden Carolus Tripel beer. Originally brewed for the Knights of the Golden Fleece in 1491, this pleasant golden blond beer is preferred by all who love heavier, somewhat seasoned, full-bodied, and refreshing beer. A first for Belgium are the hand hammered, copper pot stills, in which the pure mash is distilled. The result is a pure and clear distillate. The ensuing aging in First Fill Bourbon casks followed by a further aging in ‘Anker’ casks (oak casks reworked by the cooper according to Het Anker’s own specifications) results in a refined whisky with a rich and balanced taste. The subtle fruit aromas are delightfully enhanced by hints of wood and vanilla.
GlenAllachie Speyside 12 Year Single Malt Scotch Port Wood Finish...$109.99
This gorgeous ruby red malt has been matured for over nine years in American Oak Barrels. It was then re-racked into Ruby Port Wood Pipes. The secondary maturation develops the flavor, depth and complexity and adds a vibrant, rich colour. Regular monitoring ensures we achieve the perfect balance between port and malt whilst preserving the whisky characteristics.
