  1. whisky313 did not rate this whisky Specialist

    Distilled in 2016, this 'field to bottle' English single malt spent years maturing in bourbon casks before transferring to be 'finished' in STR (shaved, toasted and re-charred) red wine barriques, which came from sunny Rioja vineyards in Spain.

    Light & floral, with layers of summer berries & vanilla ice cream, there’s a sweet & oaky spiciness that hints at a fantastic glass of Spanish red wine.

    Joe Clark, Whisky Director, Spirit of Yorkshire Distillery says:
    “Filey Bay STR Finish is totally different from anything we’ve released so far. It takes the citrus and caramel flavours from the bourbon casks and weaves them with the red fruits of the Rioja barriques, creating a complex whisky with spice and depth that’s also light and floral.”
