The Old Particular Single Casks are a particularly sought-after range of individually-selected Single Malt and Single Grain Scotch Whiskies from all over Scotland. Each is bottled exactly the way the Distiller intended: without colouring or chill-filtration, and at high alcohol strength. This combination allows the cask to retain the naturally present oils, fats and enzymes in the spirit that enhance the quality of the nose, the mouthfeel and flavour profile of the Whisky.
Nose: damp bonfire embers, charred oak, bbq’d mango and a hint of liquorice.
Palate: lightly toasted barley, Scottish sea salt and citrus fruits with a pistachio shell quality; followed by a medium-long finish with home-baking, fresh sponge cake, sweet pear and stewed strawberries.
