Light, fruity and creamy, Flagship single malt is made with 100% homegrown barley and is the culmination of a bourbon matured style following on from their First and Second Releases launched in 2019. It is now beautifully rounded.
This field to bottle single malt was initially matured in 200L bourbon casks (filled in 2016), before being transferred to 250L Hogshead barrels from Spain that had held Moscatel for 10 years prior to this. The use of bourbon casks followed by Moscatel barrels to finish creates a really interesting flavourful whisky. Still light and soft like previous releases but with an added depth, more layers of fruit and sweet spices. There are 6000 bottles of this release available.
Whilst sherries like Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso are well known in single malt whisky maturation, Moscatel is much more rare and unusual. Moscatel grapes are known for floral aromas (orange blossom, jasmine and honeysuckle) as well as citric notes like lime and grapefruit. The grapes thrive in sandy soil and Moscatel vineyards are close to the beaches in the sherry region of Spain – making it a perfect match for Filey Bay whisky, made on the Yorkshire Coast.
Soft, spicy and warming with notes of honeycomb, orange marmalade, dried fruits and cocoa.
Distilled in 2016, this ‘field to bottle’ single malt spent years maturing in bourbon casks before transferring to be ‘finished’ in shaved, toasted and re-charred (hence STR) red wine barriques, which came from sunny Rioja vineyards in Spain.
Light, floral, and fruity with notes of summer berries, vanilla ice cream, orange chocolate, and toasted oak.
The Forest Distillery's latest blend is their own blend of complex malt whiskies. Each one is at least 8 years old and they are all 100% malt whisky. They have then taken that blend and finished it in a 50 year old Oloroso cask at the distillery. This cask has previously been used to mature their blends 3 times, and as such, the sherry influence is much less in this than previous releases. The whisky is much softer and gentle in flavour. Definitely very easy to drink, with beautiful notes of toasted European Oak.

Aged in European oak sherry casks and new oak casks, the whisky is mellowed in our unique Solera Vat, a large oak tun inspired by the Sherry bodegas of Spain and Portugal. Never emptied, and kept half full of whiskies since 1998, the Solera Vat is the culmination of the curious minds and the pioneering spirit of Glenfiddich. It's also the secret behind this whisky becoming the first 15 year old expression to enter the top ten best selling single malts.
