Whisky Castle Bottlings
OUR AWARD WINNING WHISKIES
The Whisky Castle is absolutely delighted to be the recipient of 3 outstanding awards in the 2020 Jim Murray Whisky Bible.
Our exclusive single cask Glen Spey 21 year old made it to the Liquid Gold Category, meaning out of the 4,700 whiskies listed in the Bible, it came out as one of the most revered and elite single malts.
It was also the overall winner in the 16-21 year old single cask category with a rating of 96.5 out of 100. Not bad when you consider the highest rating Jim has ever given is 97.5.
“We are sent head first into Brazil for one of their divinely and uniquely aromatic nutty biscuits, as well as diced coconut and unmalted barley. A vague citrus note lightens the load beyond juicy. Salivating is nowhere near the right adjective. The grist, followed by a secretive spice keeps the taste buds in aromatic turmoil with a degree of liquorice and heather honey. The spice and chocolate fade is almost indecent in its alluring sexiness. As single casks go, it is as near as damn it perfection. Such beauty could bring a tear to the eye”
Our exclusive single cask Benrinnes 9 year old was rated 91 out of 100 for it’s fantastic rum finished flavours.
“Fabulously crisp barley. Clean and sugar coated. What a gorgeous delivery. You really couldn’t ask for more from the grain of the rum influence. A happy and harmonious marriage. Disarmingly orchestrated. A superior Benrinnes”.
Our exclusive single cask Glentauchers 9 year old (now sold out) was rated 92 out of 100.
“A wonderful, slightly sharp, peardrop nose. Some outstanding well weighted spices add to the complexity and charm. Superb!”.
They are non-chill filtered so all the natural elements remain to give them a wonderful texture and taste. In short, the tasty bits haven’t been removed. They may go cloudy when they get cold, a sign that they have all their lovely natural oils.
Nearly all our own bottling’s are cask strength so you can decide just how much water you add to your whisky when enjoying them in their purest form.
