Cask Strength Release No. 2 is bottled directly from the cask, with no water added to reduce the alcohol content, to deliver extraordinary depth, complexity and flavor balance.
The cask has a huge impact on the flavour, character and natural color of our whiskey as it matures, so our Cask Strength range presents our whiskey in its purest form, giving you the freedom to enjoy our whiskey your way.
Experience the flavor and strength that suits your palate by experimenting with the amount of water you add to reach your optimal taste.
For this second release in the Cask Strength series, Gordon Motion, our Master Whiskey Maker, selected mainly sherry-matured European and American oak casks, along with just a few ex-bourbon casks.
You'll find aromas of summer rose, ripe pear and fresh coconut gathering on a wave of aromatic smoke, followed by a wild harmony of sweet and spicy flavors - poached pear and rich almond cake, honey and a twist of salty licorice.
You meet hints of toasted oak and exciting notes of ripe fruit, black pepper and sweet aniseed in a satisfyingly long finish -
In a word (or three) they call it 'smoky peppery praline'.
