Saturday the 4th of March, Batch 01 of a new beautiful whisky, with its very own taste arrived, and it is not certain that it will come again when the 299 bottles that are released are gone.
The explanation for this lies in the fact that there are no more casks like this maturing at Fary Lochan.
The whisky is called “Sweet & Spicy Sauternes – Batch 01”
Maybe you have been to one of the virtual tastings held by Fary Lochan, then you have tasted this in a younger version. The one on the program was in a 6 year version at 46.9% and yet it was not quite the same, because it was from a slightly younger distillate than this one.
Maybe you’ve had a share of one of the Sauternes casks that have been around – but it’s not the same whisky either.
Fary Lochan has had nothing but the two mentioned aging in Sauternes casks and therefore this release is completely unique.
Sweet & Spicy Sauternes Batch 01 is a double cask-aged whisky where the aging has been almost equally divided between Bourbon and Sauternes casks, and is a “non-smoked” version.
Matured for 7 years & 3 months.
First 3 years & 6 months in a 1st Fill Bourbon Barrel
Then 3 years & 9 months in a 1st Fill Sauternes Barrique.
The casks were filled on November 5th 2015 and May 14th 2019 respectively
The whisky is bottled on February 7th 2023 at 57.2% abv

Pleasant, fresh sweetness, soft peppermint, vanilla, sweet grapes, flowers, pineapple, a touch of strawberries
Dry, spicy, caramel, vanilla, red berry marmalade, candied ginger, oak
Medium to long, soft tones of boysenberry marmalade, honey, and maybe some vanilla milkshake
It’s a lovely dram with sweetness, freshness and just the right amount of spiciness so it just kicks off and warms you up.
