Which single malts still only use American whiskey barrels?

Postby tspnyc » Tue Jan 15, 2013 6:34 pm

In this age of alternative finishing in every thing from Italian Marsala to Caribbean rum, I was trying compile a list of distilleries that only age their whisky in bourbon barrels (or similar American whiskey like Jack Daniels, etc.)

Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe the following would be on the list.

Glenmorangie 10
Balvenie 10,
Balvenie 15 Single Barrel
Talisker 10
Ardbeg 10

Can anyone else add to the list?

I was wondering about the 12yo Springbank, as the 15 and 18 seem heavily sherried, they make the 12 seem like there is no sherry at all.

Conversely, what single malts are aged only in sherry barrels?

Highland Park
Macallan 12 and the others in the main line
Glenfarclas 12 and the others in the main line
Glengoyne 21
Glendronach 12 and the others in their main line

Can anyone confirm these two lists, or add to them? Thanks.

Highland Park 12, 15, 18, and 25 are all sherry casks. I don't remember the exact formula but it was varying parts of first fill, second fill.

Macallan 12 and 18 are olorosso sherry.

the list is too long, since this is the majority of single malts...
