What is our ‘self-fill’ single cask Scotch whisky?
Our visitors have the opportunity to purchase a bottle of exclusively-matured whisky drawn from a unique single cask. The bottle can be filled by the individual from the barrel onsite, and is labelled for them by our team. Each Scotch whisky cask contains roughly 200 – 600 bottles of whisky, dependent on the size, type and age of the cask. And when the last bottle is gone, its unique taste passes into history.
Cask No. 135 is an ex-sherry oak cask, which gives a rich colour and character compared to an American oak cask. Bottled at 55.2% abv, cask 135 was laid down in 1998, and was released from the warehouse in November 2014, with the last bottle being filled on site on 21st November 2016. A total of 650 bottles were filled from this cask.
Whisky tasting notes
As two barrels of Scotch whisky are never quite the same, we never know exactly what aromas and flavours each new whisky cask will give us, so each barrel is tasted and described by our team of whisky advisors. Here are the tasting notes for this delicious single cask whisky:
Toffee, Fruity, Spicy
Smooth toffee with sweet floral honeycomb.
Dried sultanas and stewed apple leads into a rich sherry oak sweetness.
A delicate hint of cinnamon, peppery notes with sweet vanilla.
