Barrel share - Single Malt Whiskey aged on Oloroso cask (ex-sherry)
Thornæs Single Malt Whiskey, aged in oloroso casks, is for everyone who appreciates the sweet, dark and nutty notes that are characteristic of sherry-ripened whiskey. We get our sherry barrels from a small family-owned cobbler in Montilla, south of Cordoba, located in the heart of Spain's sherry production region.
The Oloroso sherry is poured on new barrels of white American oak, which 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.
The raw distillate is matured in a 50 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 eight bottles of whiskey of 50 cl. tapped at barrel strength (56-58% alk./vol.)
- The barrel portion is tapped at barrel strength immediately after three years from the filling date 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 with a filling date. Purchase of barrel share includes all taxes and fees.
Not included in your purchase
- Freight in connection with. delivery of bottles is not included. The barrel itself remains the property of the distillery.
The general terms and conditions for the purchase of whole barrels and barrel shares are stated in our barrel share program, Thornæs Cask Owner's Club
