Rich, sweet and smooth – with a slight addition of soft oak on the palette. We have blended some really interesting Malt whisky here. All malt, all aged 8 years and above.
We have then taken that blend and finished it in Oloroso casks (50 year old wood) here at the distillery. This has now been bottled at 47% in 700ml porcelain bottles using our spring water.
The story of this cask is a long one, but the results are outstanding. This cask has held Oloroso sherry for 50 years, and then was used for our first ever release of malts whisky. This second use has drawn out even more complex flavours and we are incredibly proud of the whisky. The bottles are polished black porcelain with a paper cut by the artist Georgia Low glazed with real gold.
Single Malt, Caol Ila 10 Year Old (48%)

This bottle of Forest Whisky is one of a maximum of 363 bottles which we have taken from a single cask in Scotland.This single malt has been distilled on Islay in 2009, before resting in an ex-bourbon cask for 10 years.We have then bottled this in Scotland using our own Forest Spring Water to open up the aromas and rich characteristics of this Island Whisky. We have used no additional colouring and the whisky is non-chill filtered.
