Black Friday is upon us and TWE is spreading some whisky joy on this year’s shopping holiday. Rather than discounting whisky on the site (or raising prices, then discounting them as some shops do), they decided to take a different approach this time and bottle a special edition single cask. This cask , aged for 16 long years in a cask that yielded 582 bottles bottled at Cask Strength of 54.6% from an distillery in Speyside will be on sale exactly today from 0600 am (GMT) on the TWE blog.
Fortunately, i got a sneak preview of the whisky, and managed to write some tasting notes, a few days before this goes on sale. So, if you’re feeling like grabbing a bottle, head over to TWE Black Friday page, and count the minutes… At any rate, lets taste..
Not many details, but what I was able to dig out is : It was aged for 16 years in a single sherry butt before bottling in October 2017 (1st fill). It comes from a very well known family owned Speyside distillery, and we all know what this means… right? 😉
