About This Spirit Of Yorkshire release
Filey Bay Double Oak #1 is Special Release from Spirit Of Yorkshire Distillery. It is a distinctive and unusual single malt, created by maturing their single malt whisky in both ex-bourbon and virgin oak casks. The virgin oak adds fruity and spicy notes, while the ex-bourbon casks balance this with vanilla and toffee.
The selection process started with sampling a cross-section of first-fill ex-bourbon casks laid down in the winter of 2017-2018. From a potential 150 casks, only a handful was selected, all highlighting key characteristics that would work well with the new oak casks.
With such new and active oak, the casks needed sampling, nosing and tasting frequently to ensure balance was maintained. Whisky Director Joe checked these casks monthly at first, then week by week, as their influence on the whisky grew.

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.
