In celebration of our 40th Anniversary, New Wave Wonders features our inaugural release from Distillery 156 and two distinct malts from Distillery 149. A bold 50ppm phenols puts Cask No. 156.1 West coast recipe ahead of most Islay whiskies in the peat department. It boasts salinity and maritime elements that draw our senses to the coast as sweet and decadent notes reminiscent of well-textured Speyside and Highland malts matured in fresh ex-bourbon wood pull us to the mainland once more. This is complex, cosmopolitan whisky that is worthy of a place in your collection! Distillery 149's expressions - one peated & one unpeated - are both distilled using barley from the owner’s estate. The superb whisky on offer here represents each style produced. Cask No. 149.3 A walk in the woods was aged full term in a 1st fill PX butt displaying equal measures of earth, chocolate and vanilla before kicking the sherry into high gear with ginger spice, raisins and clove-spiked orange appeal. Its peated companion Cask No. 149.6 Recipe for success boasts a mouth-coating richness of smoky meats, maple syrup and citrus accents. Full term in a 1st fill Oloroso butt pair perfectly with the highland peat. A beautifully tasty mouthful with complexities that oscillate between sweet and savoury in a most charming fashion. Slàinte!

If ordered separately: Cask No. 156.1= $140; Cask No. 149.3= $140; Cask No. 149.6= $155.
