We are pleased to announce that the latest batch of Infrequent Flyers, Batch 11, has now landed.
Batch 11 consists of 7 casks in total. These are AWW Release No.s 85 through 91, and we have one Single Grain and six Single Malts, hailing from Invergordon, an Undisclosed Speyside Distillery, Caol Ila, Blair Athol, Braeval, Benriach and Glenrothes.
As you may have come to expect, there is an array of different wood types on display – Virgin Oak, Moscatel, PX Sherry, Valpolicella Red Wine, Ruby Port and a refill butt.
Worthy of mention, this batch includes our oldest Single Malt bottling to date, at 30 Years Old (the Undisclosed Speyside), and our oldest Single Grain bottling to date, at 34 Years Old (the Invergordon).
The 30YO Undisclosed Speyside is the final edition from a quartet of casks from the same parcel, which we have released over the last 3 years, bottled at 27, 28, 29 and now 30YO respectively, across various different wood types – refill barrel, rye barrel and virgin oak barrels.
Batch 11 is available through our usual UK stockists now, and should already have reached our European markets of Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands and Italy. Further afield, stock will start to arrive over the next few weeks in Taiwan, Japan, Australia and New Zealand.
