“The Oceans”: a new series for the Japanese market

Whisky fans with a special interest in marine biology will be happy to know a new series of single cask bottlings of Scotch whisky for the Japanese market has just been launched. Those of us who go through life without worrying too much about sea creatures can still marvel at the beautiful artwork and – most importantly – the quality of the liquid in the bottle. It should not come as a surprise that the minds behind this series – and, incidentally, two other series launched this autumn, of which more later – are the people over at Whisk-e. The inaugural release in the series “The Oceans” comprises a Longmorn 1996 and a Bunnahabhain 1979, both drawn from a single hogshead and both selected from the vast stocks at independent bottler Duncan Taylor (although the series is planned to include casks from other sources, and indeed, Whisk-e’s own stock of private casks in the future).
