Barrel share - Single Malt Whiskey aged on ex-bourbon

4.750 kr

Thornæs Single Malt Whiskey, aged in a 55 liter ex-bourbon dish is for you who go for the characteristic taste of vanilla, toffee, coconut and good sweetness. Ex-bourbon casks of white American oak have been the Scottish whiskey industry's favorite cask for decades, and they have produced fantastic whiskey!

White American oak is best known for its high level of lactones. Along with notes of tropical fruit, lactones add extra sweetness to the distillate and a pleasant roasted character. Vanilla, caramel, coconut, and mocha are the typical flavors of white American oak.

Our ex-bourbon casks come from a small distillery in Sonoma county, California. According to the distillery, their bourbon has i.a. notes of coffee and almonds, and that does not sound bad.

The raw distillate is matured in a 55 liter dish and is expected to be filled in the second quarter of 2020. The dish is insured for the entire storage period and is stored by Thornæs Destilleri ApS.

Your share includes

  • 1/10 barrel share gives about nine bottles of whiskey of 50 cl. tapped at barrel strength (56-58% alk./vol.)

  • The dish is bottled immediately after three years from the date of filling unless otherwise agreed. Additional storage can be purchased. The bottled bottles will be affixed with the Private Cask label, which i.a. shows dish type, distillation date, bottling date, dish owner name and other essential information.

  • When we fill the barrel, we take a sample of the raw distillate and send it to you so you can follow the development of your whiskey from start to finish. If the barrel is already filled at the time of purchase, a sample from the current production will be sent. At least once during the ripening period, we bid inside the distillery to taste your dish. If you are prevented, we are happy to send a sample by post, but we still hope that you can find time in the calendar, because tasting directly from the barrel is one of the great experiences as a dish owner.

  • You will receive a cask ownership certificate describing your ownership and when the cask is ready for delivery. If the dish is waiting to be filled, we will send you an updated proof.

  • The price includes all taxes and VAT.
