My Kosher Single Malt Scotch Whisky List

The PDF below contains a list of Scotch Single Malt Whiskies that contain no Stam Yeinam (any sherry, wine, brandy etc) influence.
It is provided as a guide for those who wish to avoid any doubt whatsoever and drink only those whiskies matured in ex-Bourbon, New Virgin or other non-wine based casks (such as rum).
For those who enjoy their whisky "Sherry bombs", they certainly have a few important poskim to rely on. However, there are an increasing amount of poskim today who would advise you to avoid any whiskies where the distillery states on the bottle that the product has been matured in casks previously having contained sherry, wine or the like.
I take the position that there are, Baruch Hashem, so many wonderful single malts out there to drink with no yayin stam influence, (as my list proves), I personally feel very comfortable being machmir and staying clear of even a hint of any possible halachic problem.

Removed almost all standard BenRiach expressions as I established that they contain around 20% Ex-Sherry cask maturation. The amount varies per batch but it is too complicated to point out which batched are below 10% by checking product dates.

Removed Bruichladdich Port Charlotte Heavy Peated as I have established that the latest batches contain around 15% or more Ex-Sherry maturation.
