Hello,Does anyone know if there has been a bottling of single grain whisky finished in a Sherry Cask? Has this ever been thought of?

Hi Frank,

Not that I heard of, a Single Grain finished in a Sherry cask, but any way sounds very good to me....

Slainte,

I've heard it said that most (some say all) Canadian Whisky is technically a single grain. If this is true, Canadian Club Sherry Cask, and Pike Creek (Port Finished) might qualify in this genre. Greenore is an Irish Single Grain that has some rum casking.

Back in 1994, Signatory bottled a 1959 Single Grain distilled at Cameronbridge Destillery matured in a sherry cask. 35 years old / 53.2 %vol.
Only 155 bottles were drawn from the cask.
