Beer Cask Series: Imperial Stout Cask


For the past twelve months we have been working on a barrel aged beer program for pilot batch brewing. Our intentions were to make good beer, that also complimented our style of whisky.

This Imperial Stout Cask bottling is the third from our Beer Cask Series.

Matured in a 40L American oak ex-bourbon cask for four years before finishing in another 40L American oak ex-bourbon cask that has been barrel-aging a stout, brewed by our own head distiller, Ben James. This particular finishing cask was used to serve our 2019 Winter Feast release from during the event.

Tasting Notes

Rich fruit and nut dark chocolate, latte coffee complemented with light leather and pipe tobacco notes. A mild citrus, similar to lemon sherbet lollies.

The initial rum cask maturation permeates with notes of salted caramel, and pecans. These are integrated with notes of black coffee, dark brown sugar, and chocolate. Followed up with chocolate waffles with maple syrup and candied citrus.

A medium to long finish with biscuit crumb, roasted grains, cacao nibs and a gentle spice.

Please note, we have decided to not filter or flock this whisky to ensure it’s richness. As such, the whisky can appear cloudy or form into sediment at the bottom of the bottle. It’s perfectly safe, and nothing to worry about.

Allergens: May contain traces Gluten.
