About This Spirit Of Yorkshire release
This 'field to bottle' English single malt from Spirit of Yorkshire Distillery was initially matured in 200 litre bourbon casks (filled in 2016), before being transferred to 250 litre hogshead barrels from Spain that had held Moscatel for 10 years prior to this. The use of bourbon casks followed by Moscatel barrels to finish creates a really interesting flavourful whisky. Still light and soft like Spirt of Yorkshire's previous releases but with an added depth, more layers of fruit and sweet spices. There are 6,000 bottles of this whisky available.
Whilst sherries like Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso are well known in single malt whisky maturation, a Moscatel finish is more rare and unusual. Moscatel grapes are known for floral aromas (orange blossom, jasmine and honeysuckle) as well as citric notes like lime and grapefruit. The grapes thrive in sandy soil and Moscatel vineyards are close to the beaches in the sherry region of Spain – making it a perfect match for Filey Bay Moscatel Finish whisky, made on the Yorkshire coast of England.

What you need to know about taxes
All alcoholic products sold by TopWhiskies are sold subject to UK alcohol tax, which is already included in the price.
UK sales are subject to VAT (currently 20%), which is included in the price. Sales outside of the UK are not subject to this tax, and international prices do not include it.
We use a specialist US shipper who sorts out US taxes. These costs are factored into the US shipping charges. So shipping may look pricey, but remember it covers your taxes as well.
For all other territories, including those in Europe, please note: your order could be subject to local sales taxes and duties upon arrival in the destination country. All additional charges are the responsibility of the recipient. As customs policies vary widely from country to country, TopWhiskies has no control over these charges, so you should contact your local customs office for further information. If you refuse to pay any import duties and taxes, this could result in the goods being destroyed by customs or being returned back to us - any refund offered would include a deduction of our costs.
