Filey Bay Moscatel Cask Finish (70cl, 46%)
Filey Bay Moscatel Finish is there first ever sherry-finished release. Distilled in 2016, this single malt was first matured in bourbon casks (for around three years) before being 'finished' in Hogshead barrels. By using bourbon casks first and a distillate that combines both pot and column styles, they have created a light whisky in there house-style, which has then slightly softened and taken on more wood spice and layers of fruit from the Moscatel barrels.
Moscatel is very unusual in the world of sherry-influenced whiskies – the naturally sweet character of the grapes, along with their floral aromas of orange blossom, jasmine and honeysuckle (with citric elements too) really complement the house-style.
