Single Cask Club - Tasting Notes

October 2022

Month 11

Well, the Glenallachie went down well! I am chuffed that went so well and a lot of love for the Lochlea also! Great Stuff. 

This month we have an Isle of Raasay ballot coming out for some single cask stuff from them, that will be coming very soon so keep your eyes peeled for that. 

 We have a couple more from Morrisons distillers this month, they just keep release wonderful spirit, so I have got to keep sharing! 
Dram 1 - Glen Keith - Carn Mor Strictly Limited.
Glen Keith is a wonderful distillery tucked away behind the Strathisla Distillery in Keith and produces a tripled distilled spirit on thinnish still with upward running lynarms which help produce a fruity light spirit. Mothballed in 1999 and reopened in 2013 this is some of the first spirit to have run from the stills again. 

Distilled in 2013 and bottled in 2022 this 9-year-old was finished in PX sherry hogsheads with a final yield of 1410 bottles at a bottled strength of, of course 47.5% ABV. This really opens with a lovely bright golden syrup note that carries throughout the dram, it brings a vibrant fig and datey note with the PX which leads to a darker chocolate and mocha mid to finish on the palate. A welcome spice helps to add balance and structure to lead to you a long lingering sweet milk chocolate finish.

Dram 2 -Ardmore - Carn Mor Strictly Limited
Ardmore is a peated Highland spirit in Kennethmont Aberdeenshire. Using local peat to smoke the barley helps to add local character to the spirit. As the peat in Aberdeenshire is made from trees and heather it creates more of a wood smoke character then the marine life structures that create west coast peat. Downward lynarms and onion shaped stills also help create a bigger heavier spirit. 

Distilled in 2012 and bottled in 2022 at 9-years-old having being finished in Bourbon barrels with a total out run of 1184 bottles at 47.5% ABV. 

The initial nose is like a cold wood fire on an Autumnal day, the citrus coming through creates this glorious saline quality that’s almost salted caramel. The palate brings more of that wood smoke and a soft spiced sweetness. The finished is medium long with more if a lemon méringue style sweetness.
