It’s incredibly uncommon for us to be able to offer up sequential cask numbers from the same distillate. Casks 44.134 and 44.135 are both from the same distillery, the same cask type, the same flavour profile, AND were both distilled on the same day!

Yet the differences in the glass are utterly unique and world’s apart. The magic of the single cask! In Outturn, these are being offered up at $240 & $245 separately, but if you jump on this mid-month pair bundle for just $439, you save $46 and get to enjoy these two Spicy & Sweet teenage casks around the fireplace this winter!

Description

Cask 44.134

We encountered initially a rather perfumed nose. All on new leather hardbag, potpourri, white balsamic vinegar, chopped pistachios, aged white port, powder puff and rice pudding. Unusual but enthralling. Water brought out pineapple cubes, nutmeg, white jellybeans, red liquorice and freshly laundered linens. The palate was full of savoury barley broth, cantaloupe melon, lime jelly, camphor, rolling tobacco, menthol cough sweets, baking soda and sweet juniper. With water we found more savoury notes such as chicken noodle soup, ham terrine, dry spiced dates, spicy peanuts and then things like muesli with dark fruits, chalk and sponge cake.

Cask 44.135

The nose suggested sipping Vinho Verde or Gewürztraminer in a sunny meadow – sitting on straw and hessian; nearby – a greengage tree and someone opening a packet of Avanti vanilla cigars. The sweet, tasty palate contained Revels and M&M’s, marzipan, floral honey and a Magnum ice-lolly stick. The reduced nose had us lounging on a corduroy sofa in a sun-dappled hay loft, passing round a box of assorted milk chocolates. The palate combined Dolly Mixtures and Jap Desserts with hints of something savoury – wine-cooked porcini or salt beef, washed down with Sauvignon Blanc or tawny port – then a nice dry, memory-rich, thirst-provoking finish.
