Primarily matured in first fill bourbon casks laid down in the winter of 2018, before a secondary maturation in peated casks, this whisky brings the west coast of Scotland here to the east coast of Yorkshire. We sourced and specifically chose these casks based on the subtle smoky style of the peated whisky they originally held, and this character really comes through.
As with all our whiskies, Filey Bay Peated Finish Batch #2 has been created to have depth, complexity and nuance for those with established palates, whilst not overwhelming those newer to whisky.
How smoky is this release? Our Peated Finish is all about balance; soft and sweet with a gentle twist of smoke making this Filey Bay release perfect for any whisky fan whatever their preference. Whilst softer and fruitier than Batch #1, Batch #2 has a touch more smoke. A firm favourite of the distillery team, and a great stepping stone into a style of whisky that some can find a little extreme.
As with every Filey Bay Whisky, Peated Finish Batch #2 is made from field to bottle by us here in Hunmanby on the Yorkshire Coast. Using 100% homegrown barley and water sourced from beneath our farm, it’s not just made in Yorkshire, it’s made of Yorkshire.
