The new chapter of Highwayman’s whisky library sees the unleashing of the follow up to the sold out ‘The Real 420’ with this Double Barrel Blues. A marriage of 2 x 100lt French oak, super heavy char dry red wine casks created at Lord Byron Distillery in Byron Bay.
Owner of Highwayman, Dan Woolley comments:
“…… a Highwayman unlike any before. Refined oak characteristics with a beautiful maltiness leading to incredible balance of cask and spirit. Bottled at a cask strength of 55% and yielding 120 bottles to the batch with 80 going live via the website.”.
An instant sell-out at Highwayman’s website, each bottle is hand dipped in black wax and presented in a branded bottle bag. This second release sold out in under an hour on Highwayman’s website and Dan Woolly has sent a small allocation our way for our loyal supporters too.
