Necessary Evil Finish is a vatting of lightly-peated single malt initially matured in Ex-bourbon casks and finished in ‘Necessary Evil’ imperial stout oak casks from Derbyshire-based Thornbridge Brewery. This years stout casks were originally used to mature Pedro Ximénez sherry (‘PX’). These previous uses impart additional magic on our single malt whisky, and the PX character adds additional layers of complexity. The casks are emptied of stout and filled with our whisky within 72 hours.
