This rare ‘Distillers Reserve’ expression is the first of only six 200 litre casks from Overeem’s highly anticipated 12-Year-Old ‘Bourbon Cask Matured Series’. Selling out at the distillery within a few hours, owners Jane Overeem and her husband Mark graciously sent an allocation our way for any whisky enthusiasts who may have missed out on the release. The remaining casks will be decanted and sold in early 2022 and mid-2022.
The Distillery comments;
“We can’t quite put into words just how excited we are to share these special whiskies with you. It has truly been a wonderful journey… In 2009 Founder, Casey Overeem filled his first ever 200 litre ex-Bourbon casks from Heaven Hill Distillery, Kentucky. Over the course of the next 12 months, Casey filled another 5. A total of 6 casks that he planned on maturing for at least 10 years.
‘See you in 2020’ he had said, as he rolled them into the bond store”
“Now 12 years later…
We are so proud with the finished product. The quality of the Overeem spirit really shines through in these exceptional Bourbon Casks. Cask OHD-056 is exceptional. Perfectly balanced, with tropical fruits, soft oak and rich oily malt, Casey Overeem and the Overeem tasting panel unanimously chose this cask to be bottled at cask strength due to the astounding quality and elegance of spirit – a testament to its craftmanship. With only 156 bottles available, this may well be one of the most celebrated whiskies ever to be released from Overeem”
