Dad's Hat Pennsylvania Rye Whiskey
A classic rye whiskey with spice and dark fruit flavours, made with the highest level of craftsmanship. Winner of Whisky Advocate's Craft Whiskey of the Year award in 2015, this is one of the best modern expressions of modern rye whiskey available.
Michel Couvreur Pale Single Single
Michel Couvreur is Burgundy's authority on whisky, taking single malts from Scotland and ageing them in carefully selected barrels in France. It's a match made in heaven, one that provides some of the world's most sought after whiskies upon release.
This particular release is a scaled back effort, taking a scotch from a single Scottish distillery and ageing it for 12 years in a single sherry wood cask (hence the 'single single'name). The result is an intense, top quality single malt scotch smoothed out by lashings of sherry sweetness and delicate floral notes.
Mars Maltage Cosmo
A permanent addition to the Japanese distillery's range after a breakout debut at the 2015 Tokyo Bar Show, the Cosmo (in reference to the distillery's high altitude) is a blended whisky, featuring Shinshu Japanese whisky mixed with Scottish single malts.
Best enjoyed neat or with a touch of water, this is a well rounded, lightly fruity and earthy whisky with a lovely lingering finish. It's smooth, elegant and another exciting Japanese addition to 161's whisky range.
