 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. 201445 is an ex-american oak cask, which gives a lighter colour and character compared to sherry or port casks. Bottled at 55.1% abv, cask 201445 was laid down in 2001, and was released from the warehouse in November 2016, with the last bottle being filled on site on 25th April 2017. A total of 173 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:

Woody Spice, Fruity, Sweet

WOODY SPICE
Fresh vanilla pods, cracked white peppercorns and lightly toasted oak.

FRUITY
A plethora of citrus fruits, baked apples and peaches, with a drizzle of lemon oil and mixed spice.

SWEET
Sweet Chantilly cream, pear drops and chocolate orange, with just a dusting of demerara sugar.
