What would happen if you aged whiskey in oak barrels that formerly held special beers (namely, Double Double Barrel Ale.)? In what sounds like a drunken bet, Firestone brewing shipped sixty barrels overseas to Scotland’s Tullibardine distillery in the Scottish Highlands (famous for it’s water) and hence Polly’s Casks was born.

While there’s no age on the  single malt product, it tastes like a 1o or 15 year old single malt with a complex aroma, smooth finish, and a lovely smokey aftertaste.


At $100 a pop, it’s not cheap, but darm*, it’s worth it.

(Best place to buy? One of our fave sites, Love Scotch.)


* a measure of whiskey.
