Pour & Sip is a whisky subscription service that aims to make the world of whisky less intimidating. The monthly subscription makes for a great present for a whisky lover who wants to branch out from their favourite drams and learn a bit more about what’s out there. What’s more, our readers can make the most of a special DISCOUNT CODE that will give them £10 off their first two boxes!
The world of whisky can be a bit daunting. With so many regions, styles, distilleries and expressions out there, it can be quite tempting to play it safe and stick to some tried and tested bottles (especially as whisky can get quite expensive).
Pour & Sip
Pour & Sip is a subscription club and community that gives whisky lovers (new and expert alike) the chance to try incredible whiskies – including rare bottlings – without having to commit to buying a full-sized bottle. Run by multi-award-winning online drinks distributors Master of Malt, subscribers will receive a pack of hand-picked tasters of whisky from all around the world, as well as access to online tastings hosted by an expert team, a rewards programme, a Members Store with discounts on full-sized bottled, exclusive whisky features and more.
New customers will receive a Welcome Pack with a pair of Glencairn tasting glasses, a ‘How to Taste Whisky’ card, tasting notes, plus the first five 30ml whisky samples. After that, subscribers will continue to receive packs containing five 30ml whisky samples and tasting note cards (complete with distillery info, each sample’s backstory & space for their own notes) in the post every month (or every two months if preferred). Members have complete control over their subscription and can cancel any time.
Our first Pour & Sip box contained:
Daigeo’s annual Special Release, this year themed ‘Rare by Nature’. This maturation is the first of its kind from the Isle of Skye distillery, aged for eight years in casks which previously held pot-still Caribbean rum! Two radically different seaside locations meet in one expertly-balanced whisky, with Talisker’s smoke, peppery spice and seaweed flavours bolstered by tropical fruit from the cask.
This is a shiny new release from the Finnish distillery, distilled entirely from malted Finnish wholegrain rye. It is actually the first Finnish single batch rye whisky and has been aged exclusively in new American white oak casks, imparting some creamier vanilla notes to the otherwise spicy whisky.
The folks at Darkness LOVE their sherry. After an initial maturation in ex-Bourbon barrels, this single malt Scotch (from an unknown distillery) was transferred to custom-made Olorosso sherry octave casks (smaller than your usual sherry butt) for at least three months. The increased surface-area-to-volume ratio makes for some super amped up cask influence – generous helpings of chocolate dried fruit and toasty spices await!
J.J.Corry is the first new whiskey bonder in Ireland for over 50 years! The Hanson is a blend of three casks of grain whiskey from a selection of Irish distilleries, bringing all those creamy vanilla notes that we know and love from grain.
Tide is a glorious 21-year-old single malt that has been treated to a dual maturation, initially in American white oak Bourbon barrels, packing in heaps of vanilla and caramel flavours, before being transferred to virgin American white oak, giving a slightly spicier character.
