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.
A blend of Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whiskies which underwent a secondary maturation in Mossburn Cask Bill #2. These were specially built Oloroso Sherry Butts with heavily charred virgin American Oak heads which enhance the richness, depth and spicy vanilla flavours.
Blended from a careful selection of fine peated Single Malts distilled on the Islands of Scotland. Double barrelled for added depth and a mellow oak-spice finish. Second maturation in first-fill Bourbon barrels
Big, opulent Bourbon (in a bottle to match) with a nose that's full of bright lemon, pure vanilla layered over an almost cake-like seam of malt. There's more of the same on the palate alongside welcoming notes of muscovado sugar and spice.
Complex and well balanced as malt lovers have come to expect from Mossburn Speyside, with subtle banana and vanilla on the nose, and rum raisin undertones on the palate
