We've brought together some of our finest Single Cask, Single Malt Whiskies and carefully presented them in our hand labelled 100mL Fila bottles. This is a unique way to experience Single Cask Whiskies - buying these extremely rare Whiskies the normal way would cost shy of $900 in their normal full-size variants so this is bound to be an unusual gift or treat for the Whisky lovers out there! Packaged in wooden wool with tasting notes to guide you through the selection.
Remember: These aren't ordinary Whiskies you'd find anywhere! All our limited, single cask Whiskies are produced by renowned independent bottler 'The Adelphi' plus Australia's only Rye Whisky.
Please note: customised boxes do not include tasting notes but you can choose any of our whiskies.
So what delicious drams have we thoughtfully brought together?
- Amfora's Finest Blend: produced by the highly respected Adelphi company in Edinburgh. A perfect place to start as it combines the fruity Speysides and the smokey Islays in a very drinkable dram.
- Glenrothes Single Malt: You'll taste a special example of a Highland Speyside with touches of citrus, toffee and butterscotch. Unbelievable colours and intense flavours - this shows what an active cask can do! Age is not as important as maturity and this proves it. Awarded Gold by Malt Maniacs in 2014. Highly limited bottling.
- Bunnahabhain Single Malt: Islay is the last Scotch stop, an island on the west coast of Scotland where the sea plays it part. On the nose you'll pick up the sea's influence and smell the influence of the peated barley. On the palate you'll taste sweet, charcoal flavours too.
- Belgrove Rye Whisky: Finally to Tasmania, something entirely different in the form of Australia's only Rye Whisky, and possibly one of only a few paddock to bottle distilleries. You'll find cinnamon, honey, nutmeg and smokiness combined in this delicious amber nectar. A much more spicy style of Whisky.
Each tasting pack is packaged in its own box with tasting notes, including a personalised message on the first bottle if requested. Approximately 13 servings is included within this pack.
How should I enjoy a dram? When nosing and tasting whisky it is advisable to use a tulip shaped glass (e.g. a Glencairn glass) which will concentrate the aromas. Swirling the whisky in the glass will expose it to the air and releases the nose clearly. How much it sticks to the sides says much about it's consistency and alcohol level. If you like add a touch of water - this can help release the flavours and aromas for some whiskies. Push your nose into the glass and inhale with your mouth slightly open. What do you smell? Take a sip and hold it in your mouth for a few seconds before swallowing. Every whisky comes with its own range of aromas and flavours; the range is really quite astonishing!
