When it comes to novelty in the whiskey world, Method and Madness’s latest deviation with their single pot is one worth watching. Finished in French chestnut casks? Yep, you heard correctly. This flavorful dram is an experimentation with casks gone right in all the best ways. With hints of nuts and dark fruits, this single pot still yields a round full body and great aroma to savor all year round.

If you’re looking for the perfect marriage of peat with a maritime malt, Old Pulteney Huddart is just the whiskey for you. Honoring the brand’s birthplace, Huddart Street at Wick, the Huddart is a richly warming single malt finished in ex-peated malt casks, imparting a kick of smoke to this otherwise spicy, coastal dram.
Price: $70.35 | ABV: 57.5% | Nose: Maple Syrup, Orange Marmalade, and Complex Red Fruits | Category: Bourbon | Origin: Texas
Distilled in the heart of Texas, this bold, craft whiskey from our friends at Ironroot Republic Distillery is a non-chill filtered, over-proof sipping bourbon that proves why you should give Texas a try. Aged for less than 3 years in American and European virgin oak casks, Ironroot’s Harbinger 115, the distillery’s flagship bourbon, has distinguished itself in the category by applying French cognac distillation techniques to Texas heirloom corn to make its signature whiskey. The end result? It was one of the first bourbon’s outside of Kentucky to win “world’s best bourbon” at the World Whiskies Award in 2020. Need we say more?
Price: $95 | ABV: 50% | Nose: Maple, Butterscotch, Poached Pear and Banana | Category: Bourbon | Origin: Tennessee

The first release in their trailblazing new collection of premium whiskeys, Heaven’s Door Decade Series Release #01 certainly does not disappoint. Bottled at 100 proof, this 10-year old Tennessee bourbon delivers a perfect balance of sweet and savory, leading with a wood flavor and finishes off with a touch of sweetness.

After spending three years maturing in first fill bourbon casks followed by re-charring in heavily charred bourbon casks for a year, this beautiful blend by the folks at West Cork Distillers is worthy of your attention. With its added finish in charred bourbon casks comes heightened flavors of vanilla and smoothness, resulting in a superior drinking experience.
