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. 3, bottled at 57.0% abv, began maturing in 1999 in a P.X. sherry cask. This type of cask gives a richness of colour and flavour like no other, and is truly unique amongst our single cask Aberfeldy bottlings. This cask was taken from the warehouse in November 2017 with the last bottle being filled on 25th August 2018. A total of 565 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:
Fruity, Spicy, Creamy
Deeply sherried fruit, sultanas, raisins and cherries.
Cloves and a whiff of cigar smoke with note of polished oak and bitter caramel.
Finishing with a rich, smooth, almost treacle like finish.
How to purchase a bottle from this unique Scotch whisky cask
Cask number 3 is currently sold out, and due to the nature of oak casks, each single cask bottling has its own unique character and flavour.
