Expanding their horizons to Portugal by way of their first Port Finish release. Bringing added sweetness and spice to our ex-bourbon matured house style 'field to bottle' whisky.
Filey Bay Port Finish Batch #1 spent its first maturation in ex-Bourbon casks (filled mid 2017) before being re-racked into fresh ex-Ruby port casks in late 2020. Bright and light, Ruby Port uses more fresh fruit than the heavier richer better-known Tawny, and the casks are notoriously hard to source. This release is a much smaller batch than our other ‘finished’ whiskies with only 3300 bottles available and has also spent much longer in the second cask type, a total of two years.
Tasting Notes: Rich, spicy and fruity with flavours of blackberry jam, dark chocolate and vanilla.
The jammy, fruity nature of Ruby Port really complements our light and fruity spirit style. I particularly like how the vanilla notes work with the light spice from the wood in this release. It's been a long time coming but it's definitely been worth the wait!"
