Incredible Indies: Firkin Whisky Co. Edition

LIVE TASTING ANNOUNCEMENT! Join our very own Chris Borrow live on the No Nonsense Whisky YouTube channel at 8pm UTC on Wednesday 10th November 2021 to taste along with host Vin P-F and special guest Ed Leigh of TopWhiskies.

A limited-availability box and The Dram Team's Whisky Tasting Club box of the month for November 2021, this Incredible Indies: Firkin Whisky Co. edition is an absolute banger of a box- with epic-quality whiskies weighing in at about 50% more than our usual budget!

We collaborated directly with industry legend Mike Collings (read our interview with Mike here), architect of a series of legendary whisky products (including Johnny Walker Blue no less!) and founder of both the Firkin Whisky Co. and Spencer Collings brands, to showcase six drams that give a tasty insight into what he's up to these days...

...and boy is he up to some fun things! Custom-specified casks, soulmate wine pairings...these are six whiskies unlike anything you've tasted before: 

  • The Firkin Ten: Benrinnes 2008, Custom Cask Madeira - A epic marriage of Speyside Scotch with rich Madeira wine. Rich, lively, spicy.
  • The Firkin 49: Tullibardine 2012, Custom Cask Oloroso & Amontillado - Two types of sherry cask make this a stunningly soft and nutty dram, creamy and rich.
  • The Firkin Islay: Caol Ila 2010, Custom Cask Marsala - A true soul-mate pairing of peaty smoke and Muscat grape sweetness. Incredibly complex.
  • The Firkin Rare: Ledaig 2008, Custom Cask Marsala - An Island smoke monster tamed with sweet Marsala, to epic effect.
  • Spencer Collings' Founder's Reserve: 10 Year Old Cask Strength - A whopping cask strength release combining three top quality single malt Scotches.
  • Imperial Tribute from Spencer Collings - Only 300 bottles released, and containing whiskies as old as four decades. Wowsers!
