PLEASE READ ABOUT OUR FEATURED WHISKEY BELOW!
TEELING DISTILLERY – SMALL BATCH
This small batch bottling consists of hand selected casks which are given further maturation in ex-Flor de Cana Rum barrels imparting an extra sweet and smooth flavour unique to Irish whiskey. A very approachable whiskey due to the influence of the rum cask which creates a unique smooth, sweet, slightly woody marriage that sparkles on the tongue.
SHERINGHAM DISTILLERY – WILLIAMS WHITE
William’s White is a White Whisky inspired by the high quality, smooth clear whisky that was once produced in our area. Aromas of sweet grains with a clean & slightly spicy flavour.
CENTURY DISTILLERS – NINETY 5 YEAR OLD
The mouth-feel is soft as the whisky crosses the palate with flavors of wood spice, dusty rye, & very light flavours of butterscotch & corn syrup. Although the whisky is aged for only five years, the oak spiciness it brings forward is firm with impressions of citrus peel & tobacco growing in the glass. I taste a hint of honey sweetness, a gentle sweep of vanilla, & a vague mustiness of baby corns underlying the other flavors within.
FORTY CREEK – DOUBLE BARREL RESERVE
This whiskey has a wonderful golden roasted aroma filled with deep vanilla notes and highlighted with toasted spice, pecan and walnuts. There is a caramelized creaminess to the flavour with a rich spice that lifts it off the tongue. The finish is very smooth, mellow & extra-long.
