Porter Cask

Special Release


Porter Cask

Special Release

From whisky to beer to whisky, using Filey Bay’s skills as farmers, brewers and distillers.

The ex-PX and ex-Bourbon casks chosen for this release were originally filled in the spring and autumn of 2017. Disgorged years later the whisky from the ex-PX casks formed their Sherry Cask Reserve #2 while the whisky from the ex-Bourbon casks was integrated into our Flagship System. From here they were then refilled with Wold Top Brewery’s ‘Marmalade Porter’ and tucked away on their farm to now mature the beer.

After holding the Porter for 14 months the casks were disgorged once more, the barrel-aged beer was bottled and kegged as ‘Rip Curl,’ and the casks refilled, this time with the full term ex-Bourbon matured whisky from 2018. They went back into the warehouse again before the final disgorging and careful marrying created this very special release: Filey Bay Porter Cask.

Yorkshire Single Malt Whisky

Each step of this whisky maturation brought new notes and flavours to the fore. Sweetness from the ex-PX casks, vanilla from the ex-Bourbon casks, and orange chocolate and malt from the Porter, all wove delightfully into our light and fruity spirit style. Whisky Director Joe Clark spent days at the marrying stage, ensuring that the balance of flavours and the bottling strength (50% abv) complemented each other.

Tasting Notes

Fruity and complex with flavours of orange chocolate, roasted malt, baked apples and candied fruits.
