Filey Bay Double Oak #1, Special Release, is a distinctive and unusual single malt, created by maturing our single malt whisky in both ex-bourbon and virgin oak casks. The virgin oak brings fruity and spicy notes, whilst the ex-bourbon casks balance this with vanilla and toffee flavours.
Making the cut
The selection process started with sampling a cross-section of first-fill ex-bourbon casks laid down in the winter of 2017-2018. From a potential 150 casks, only a handful was selected, all highlighting key characteristics that we felt would work well with the new oak casks.
Balancing old with new
With such new and active oak, the casks needed sampling, nosing and tasting frequently to ensure balance was maintained in the overall whisky. Our Whisky Director Joe was checking these casks monthly at first, then week by week, as their influence on the whisky grew.
Tasting notes: Fruity and spicy with flavours of cream soda, banana bread, pineapple sweets and toasted oak.
