The Solaria Series from independent bottler Whisky Illuminati is a series of five different Speyside region single cask, single malt, cask strength whiskies that were all distilled in 2011 and matured in First-Fill Spanish Oak Sherry casks. This is the first of 3 releases of each whisky with a further 2 releases from the same cask scheduled to be drawn and bottled over the next four years.




You can read more about the Solaria Series here:

The Whisky Illuminati Solaria Series bottlings have a UK RRP of £120 each which is a always going to be a big ask for 7/8 year old whiskies, the concept is certainly interesting and having tasted all the whiskies I can say they are all good, a couple are very good, and it would be interesting to see how they develop, it may be a hard sell to shift these at this price but if your pockets are deep enough they are certainly enjoyable cask strength sherried drams.

And my thoughts on the 5 whiskies in the series here:
