Filey Bay Flagship Single Malt Whisky
Made by the Spirit of Yorkshire Distillery, Filey Bay is the first single malt whisky made in, “and of,” Yorkshire, England. The distillery says this because it’s a true “field to bottle” operation, made with local malt, pot distilled, and aged on site.
Matured in bourbon casks. Fresh and fruity, this is a bright and sunny whisky with a nose of baked apples, brown butter, and a pinch of baking spice. With lots of vanilla showing, it’s immediately inviting. The palate keeps the focus on all of the above flavors, a bit sweeter and offering a slightly stronger spice element, a bit clearer charred wood note, and a subtle winey note — red fruit — on the finish. All of it works perfectly together, making for a lush, sweet, and effusive way to start a night of English whisky. 92 proof
