Introducing WhistlePig HomeStock Whiskey Created by WhistlePig Whiskey In Collaboration with Flaviar

Blended Together, While Apart

Limited edition WhistlePig expression crowd-blended by whiskey lovers during lock down released to raise money for U.S. Bartenders 

[May 11, 2020]: Shoreham, Vermont. WhistlePig Rye Whiskey is pleased to announce the introduction of WhistlePig HomeStock Whiskey, a whiskey blended together, while apart.  The limited edition whiskey was created via a virtual crowd blending experience in collaboration with Flaviar, a leading online spirits club. WhistlePig will donate 20% of online sales via Flaviar Caskers from HomeStock to the U.S. Bartenders’ Guild (USBG) Foundation’s Emergency Assistance Program, which provides COVID-19 Relief Grants to bartenders. HomeStock is the first variant from WhistlePig’s award-winning portfolio that stretches outside of the Rye category, also using Wheat and Barley whiskeys.

WhistlePig HomeStock Whiskey is a result of an innovative, multi-faceted immersive crowd-blending experience designed to lift spirits and raise vital funds for the U.S. bar industry community. The collaboration between WhistlePig Flaviar and the entrepreneurial nature of both companies ensured this concept went from idea to reality in just a matter of weeks. An engaging exclusive content program was created and hundreds of WhistlePig ‘Blend Your Own’ whiskey kits were dispatched to a combination of Flaviar’s membership of whiskey enthusiasts and industry professionals, who were asked to experiment at home before submitting their preferred recipe. The at home blending kits included samples of WhistlePig Rye, wheat and barley whiskeys, along with blending tools and instructions, were universally welcomed by whiskey lovers stuck indoors.

Pete Lynch, WhistlePig’s Master Blender, is no stranger to crowd-blending, which has formed the basis of WhistlePig’s award-winning FarmStock range, but he would usually host sessions around the country in person. Adjusting to the times, he shared his expertise via a video from the WhistlePig Farm and distillery in Vermont and written instructions. With the submissions received, Lynch analyzed the data and determined the three most popular styles of whiskey submitted.

Thousands of consumers tuned in to Flaviar’s social media pages to take part in a live blending session, hosted on April 28 by spirits industry veteran, Dan Dunn and Lynch. During the live stream, all three whiskeys were blended, tasted and then voted upon to decide which should be bottled as WhistlePig HomeStock.

Despite over half of the submissions being Rye dominant, the surprise winner, with 44.1% of the votes on the night, was Blend Number 3, which involved 45% Rye, 30% Wheat and 25% Barley.

Jeff Kozak, CEO, WhistlePig Whiskey, adds “HomeStock is a truly special blend for us, not only due to how it was made but it’s the first time we’re releasing a whiskey that features something other than Rye. We’re thrilled that this blend got voted as the winner, it could be a sign of things to come from us in the future as a natural extension of our famed FarmStock range.”

Grisa Soba, Co-Founder of Flaviar, comments: “We’re going to be talking about this period in history for a long time, and what we all did to stave off cabin fever. Instead of saying they learnt how to make sourdough or banana bread like some kind of quarantine cliché, Flaviar members will be able to brag about learning to blend whiskey during lock down and being part of a piece of liquid history that they can now own and savor. Exclusive content and experiences like this have always been a big part of Flaviar and we’ve just taken it to another level.”

On the nose, HomeStock is sweet and fruity, with pipe tobacco, vanilla and orange vest.  Upon tasting, one will experience a big hit of baking spice with toffee, with nutmeg, roasted nuts, ripe berries and a great mouthfeel. The finish on HomeStock is long, spicy and lovely.

WhistlePig HomeStock Whiskey is now available for pre-order via Flaviar and Caskers, priced at $72.99 per 750ml.

Willett 4 Year: A Can’t-Miss, Cult-Caliber Whiskey at K&L California – American Whiskey News

A Balanced and Beautiful Rye from a Heralded Kentucky Estate
Willett Family Estate 4 Year Old Cask Strength Kentucky Rye Whiskey (750ml) ($59.99)

NOTE: In accordance with local directives, our walk-in retail locations are currently closed. We have low cost and free delivery options available in ZIP codes where we can ship lawfully, including anywhere in California. We can also include any new or existing will call orders in your delivery batch. Choose local delivery at checkout to learn if you qualify.

Willett is one of the biggest names in American craft whiskey. Bottlings from this Kentucky estate always disappear in a flash and are coveted by collectors the world over. So it was only natural that when we were offered a 4-year cask strength expression from this prized distiller, we secured as much as we could. If you love a classic, well-balanced rye, then this is the bottle for you. The juice is distilled by Willett’s property just outside of Bardstown, so you know that quality will be second to none. As with all things Willett, it has all the drive and power you’ve come to expect while never sacrificing subtlety and nuance. At $60, this is a steal for a rye of this caliber making it an excellent candidate to add to your regular repertoire. Given the limited availability of this bottling, we don’t expect it to be around long. This is not an offer to sleep on.

Willett Family Estate 4 Year Old Cask Strength Kentucky Rye Whiskey (750ml) ($59.99)

The flagship, own-distilled rye from Willett Family is handcrafted by our good friends outside of Bardstown. The batches are tiny and have become extremely limited releases. Each batch is bottled at cask strength without chill filtration. Here are tasting notes from Bill Thomas of the Jack Rose Dining Saloon from a recent batch: “The barrels that went into this small batch combined to make an amazing drinker. Nose: Beautiful layering of brandied cherry over a mildly tart cherry. It opens up with time and is reminiscent of cutting into your dessert with your fork which releases cinnamon and baking spices with just a hint of oak to remind you that this is high proof youthful. Palate: A robust rye with dark cherry, burnt vanilla, and spices for days. It’s a delicious rye with a weighty mouthfeel. Balance: It’s insanely well balanced with the alcohol so perfectly integrated at 115 proof you’ll forget it’s there, but you’ll find yourself smiling more and happier with each dram. Finish: the finish is long and the spices dominate this batch, while the cherry does punch its way through to the surface.” Batches are not numbered and are distinguished only by their proof. For that reason we are unable to provide details on the batch proof or number in advance.

New from Wolfburn: Two Special Releases – Scotch Whisky News

New from Wolfburn: Two Special Releases – Scotch Whisky News

Highland Whisky Festival

Early in 2020, Wolfburn agreed to take part in this year’s Highland Whisky Festival, which was scheduled for May.  A special bottling was planned – and then coronavirus came along and scuppered the plans for the festival.  But by the time the lockdown started, production of the special bottles had already begun.  On the basis that many of use could use a chuckle during these trying times, we decided to press ahead with the “cancelled” special release – as you can see from the label!  Crafted from spirit matured for seven years in quarter casks, it’s a lovely wee drop of whisky, and we hope it brings a smile to your face too!

ON THE NOSE – Fresh spring aromas abound: cut grass meets summer meadows, with traces of baked apple and sultanas.

ON THE PALATE – The freshness continues, but now melded with a subtle sweetness reminiscent of ripe fruit. Plums and pears are both here, and there’s a lovely hint of heather honey.

THE FINISH – Fruit flavours fade away, while gentle sweet tones remain to the very end. The final impression is a gentle hint of caramel and butterscotch. Truly scrumptious.

THE BALVENIE UNVEILS NEW EXPRESSION TO JOIN THE CELEBRATED STORIES COLLECTION – Scotch Whisky News

THE BALVENIE UNVEILS NEW EXPRESSION TO JOIN THE CELEBRATED STORIES COLLECTION 

  • A new whisky from The Balvenie, The Edge of Burnhead Wood 19-Year-Old, will be released on 1st May 2020 and joins The Balvenie Stories collection, first launched by the distillery in May 2019
  • The latest whisky tells a tale of exploration and craft, culminating in the first ever expression of The Balvenie made entirely from ingredients grown on its Dufftown estate
  • The Edge of Burnhead Wood is a delicately fruity and fragrant expression of The Balvenie, crafted with heather
  • The Balvenie Stories collection celebrates human stories of endeavour and unexpected twists, as told by its craftsmen at the distillery in Dufftown, Scotland
  • Drinkers can listen to the story behind the creation of The Edge of Burnhead Wood, as well as the three other expressions in the collection, via a specially recorded podcast series by the curators of the liquid at here

Today The Balvenie announces the release of The Edge of Burnhead Wood 19-Year-Old, the latest addition to the coveted Balvenie Stories range — a collection of single malt whiskies representing tales of character, endeavour and generational knowledge gathered at The Balvenie Distillery in Dufftown, Scotland. The expression brings the total number of bottles in the Stories range to four, joining The Sweet Toast of American Oak 12-Year-Old, A Week of Peat 14-Year-Old and A Day of Dark Barley 26-Year-Old. Each liquid brings to life a distinct narrative of the human touch, skill, and emotion behind every liquid produced by The Balvenie.

Inspired by the fragrant, heather-cloaked highlands which surround The Balvenie Distillery, The Edge of Burnhead Wood celebrates the pastoral tale of how The Balvenie craftsmen experimented with the distillery’s natural resources to find the perfect match between fresh heather and barley.  The expression, which is made from locally sourced ingredients found in the distillery grounds — home-grown barley malted at The Balvenie Maltings, water from the Convel hills, and fresh heather from Burnhead Wood — retains the familiar robust Balvenie taste, with a delicate fruitiness, as well as notes of light spice and juicy fruits. A balanced honeyed sweetness and spicy outburst with hints of cloves and caramelised baked dates develops to reveal an underlying oaky dryness, whilst a lingering oaky finish features notes of fragrant dried blossom.

Commenting on the release of The Edge of Burnhead Wood The Balvenie Malt Master David C. Stewart MBE says: “Stories are the lifeblood of The Balvenie Distillery and are deeply embedded in all the work that we do. The story behind The Edge of Burnhead Wood captures the majestic Speyside landscape and the inventive essence of The Balvenie’s loyal and determined craftspeople. In this way, The Edge of Burnhead Wood sums up the spirit of the work carried out at The Balvenie Distillery; The Balvenie remains true to the techniques and stories passed down by its craftsmen from generation to generation, while also looking forward by exploring new techniques, flavours and marriages to develop unique and original Balvenie expressions.”

Drinkers can hear the story of The Edge of Burnhead Wood via a specially recorded podcast series, featuring the craftsmen behind the expression, as well as The Balvenie Global Ambassador Gemma Paterson and Malt Master David C. Stewart. This podcast will be available at Burnheadwood.com and on Spotify, and can be accessed by scanning a QR code on the bottle with a Smartphone.

Storytelling is carried through every aspect of The Edge of Burnhead Wood with its tale depicted on the whisky’s packaging in a bespoke illustration from British artist and printmaker Andy Lovell. Andy’s work, which draws its inspiration direct from the distillery, can also been seen across the labels for the entire Balvenie Stories range. It uses bold, hand-made gestural marks to build up images that capture the evocative light and atmosphere of the distillery’s landscape. The texture and tactility of Andy’s work emphasises the importance of the human hand in the production of The Balvenie whiskies and the spontaneity and life that comes from The Balvenie’s artisanal ways of working.

The Edge of Burnhead Wood 19-Year-Old will launch globally on 1st May 2020 and will be available in select whisky retailers, RRP £260.00

The entire Balvenie Stories collection is currently available in select whisky retailers, at the following prices; The Sweet Toast of American Oak 12-Year-Old (RRP £45.00), The Week of Peat 14-Year-Old (RRP £65.00) and A Day of Dark Barley 26-Year-Old (RRP £600.00).

BUFFALO TRACE DISTILLERY RELEASES COLONEL E.H. TAYLOR, JR.  18 YEAR OLD MARRIAGE – American Whiskey News

BUFFALO TRACE DISTILLERY RELEASES

COLONEL E.H. TAYLOR, JR.  18 YEAR OLD MARRIAGE 

FRANKFORT, Franklin County, Ky (May 5, 2020) – Buffalo Trace Distillery continues its homage to former Distillery owner Colonel E. H. Taylor, Jr. with a special release 18 year old bourbon whiskey which is a marriage of three mashbills, two rye bourbon mashbills and one wheated bourbon mashbill.

This 100 proof Bottled-In-Bond small batch bourbon was put into barrels in 2002. Barrels chosen for this special batch release matured using one of three Buffalo Trace mashbill recipes; wheated bourbon, rye bourbon #1 and rye bourbon #2. The whiskey from these 18-year-old barrels was married together to make this limited edition offering.

Tasting notes describe this bourbon as having a nose of vanilla butter cake, a taste of caramel and cinnamon, and a finish of toasted oak, cinnamon, and a hint of spearmint.

The Colonel E. H. Taylor, Jr. collection was first released in early 2011 and several subsequent releases such as Single Barrel, Barrel Proof, Straight Rye Whiskey, and Small Batch Bourbon have followed.  A previous limited release, E. H. Taylor, Jr. Four Grain Bourbon, was named World Whiskey of the Year by renown whiskey reviewer Jim Murray in 2018.

Like some of the previous releases, this one-time-only bottling of E. H. Taylor, Jr 18 Year Old Marriage is very limited.   Also consistent with past releases, this bottle displays a vintage label and is offered inside a distinct canister reminiscent of Taylor’s whiskey package from over one hundred years ago. These six bottle cases will be shipped in an impressive wooden box first used for the Cured Oak release in 2015.  The boxes are modeled after the wooden crates used by Taylor to transport goods during the days before Prohibition.

            Colonel Edmund Haynes Taylor, Jr.  is widely considered one of the founding fathers of the bourbon industry, fighting for the Bottled-in-Bond Act of 1897, nearly three decades after he purchased the distillery that is known today as the Buffalo Trace Distillery. During his time, Taylor implemented several innovative methods still used today by Buffalo Trace, such as climate controlled aging warehouses. In addition to his bourbon interests, Taylor had political ties. He was the great-nephew of President Zachary Taylor and elected the mayor of Frankfort, state representative to the Kentucky General Assembly and a member of the State Senate.

            This special bottling of Colonel E.H. Taylor, Jr. 18 Year Old Marriage Bourbon Whiskey will be available starting in June in limited supply.  The suggested retail price is $69.99 per 750 ml bottle.
