Mossburn Island Blended Malt Whisky 46% 70cl
Mossburn Distillers was created in 2017 by Marussia Beverages to offer independent bottlings of whiskies from around Scotland. They're also the owners of the Torabhaig Distillery on the Isle of Mull, which has only recently released it's first Single Malt bottling to great acclaim.
Whereas their 'Vintage Cask' range was a selection of Single Malts, Mossburn also produce two Blended Malt releases - i.e. malt whiskies from more than one distillery, but no grain whisky is used. They also lke to experiment with cask types, so both this Island release and the Speyside version also have a really convoluted front label trying to explain what's going on.
So, a number of malt whiskies from distilleries on the islands of Scotland - possibly including Islay - are matured in 200 Litre American Oak Barrels. Presumably these are ex-Bourbon barrels, but it's not clear whether this is the case (don't forget, Sherry casks can also be American oak too!). There is then a 2nd maturation period in first-fill Bourbon casks, but the barrel heads have been replaced with those of virgin European oak that have been heavily toasted, to try and impart a subtle smoky, spicy note. Got all that? Good.
