Finally the entire collection from Two Stacks has been released. The art of the blend is on full show. Firstly, you have their original “Blender’s cut” ratio of five distinct whiskey styles, which includes pot still and peated whiskey. This intricate blend was married together and matured in Virgin Oak, ex-Bourbon and then ex-oloroso sherry hogsheads. Taking it one step further, they split the result into four separate cask finished beauties, covering a wide spectrum of profiles. Take that next step yourself. For the true whiskey tasting experience why not try our recommended pairings!

Donal McLynn,
Co-Founder of Two Stacks, says:

We are delighted to announce the release of the 2 remaining expressions in our Straight from The Cask series. The 3rd edition, a beautiful and delicate Sauternes cask finish accompanied be the 4th and final whiskey cask to be disgorged, A French oak barrel once playing host to a 5-year-old rum in Barbados. The Blenders Cut spent 90 days soaking up all the flavors the Caribbean had to offer. Both expressions have an abundance of flavour, and yet completely different to one another. The addition of water to the Whiskey will bring some of those peat notes back to life too. Truly mouthwatering.
