    WO:
    The First Cask range was a series of single casks bottled by Direct Wines from the 1990s through to the later 2000s. The series featured casks from numerous distilleries and were all bottled at 46%. Never widely available or publicised at the time they have since become something of a series of hidden gems with many great drams appearing in the range over the years.
    Signatory bottled for the First Cask series, but i’m not sure if exclusively - anyone? Laithwaites Wine is part of Direct Wines who bought Virgin Wines in 2005.
    N: Straight bourbon notes, a little peated and farmy on goats milk. Potent sugars, a heady mix
    T: Honeyed bourbon, silky mouthfeel, then becomes more fuller still.
    F: Strong into the finish.
    C: Strong identity for a natural one. Thanks for the recommendation Angus.
