Glenrothes Speyside Single Malt 1st Fill Oloroso Sherry Butt RLA 262.5 ABV 63% Full Cask 2011
Inc. VAT: £33,000.00
2011

Glenrothes Speyside Single Malt 1st Fill Oloroso Sherry Butt RLA 262.5 ABV 63% Full Cask 2011

One of the hottest commodities on the cask market over the past year is assuredly The Glenrothes. Stablemate to Macallan and Highland Park and under the masterful guidance of Gordon Motion who took the reins in 2009, there are few Speysiders which have the reputation for longevity and excellence as The Glenrothes. We are pleased to have secured this 2011 currently maturing in a 1st Fill Oloroso Sherry Butt, in which it has spent its entire life thus far.


Glenrothes is best known as a sherry-aged Speysider and this cask shows why that reputation is so justified; taking the best elements of the wood and developing into a thoroughly impressive malt. Having spent the last decade in first fill butts and taking on some remarkable characteristics as well as impressive depth of colour, they are nothing short of blue chip casks in the early days of their trajectory.


Last re-gauged at 262 RLA and a lofty ABV of 63%, these show just how long a high quality sherry butt coupled with top notch spirit can age without the numbers plummeting. This has a long life ahead of it and as such comes with exceptional investment potential.



Tasting Note
Glenrothes’ spirit generally sports a clear barley-driven aromatic profile the key to this cask’s appeal is the classically oily, muscular structure that has become a hallmark of Glenrothes’ extremely age-worthy spirit over the years. The sherry wood is working wonders inregards to the develoment of a complex, decadent flavour profile as well as colour; a not insignificant element of the overall experience, so be sure.

Linkwood 1st Fill Bourbon Barrel Cask No. 2107102 Full Cask 2021
Inc. VAT: £20,334.00
2020

Linkwood 1st Fill Bourbon Barrel Cask No. 2107102 Full Cask 2021

Linkwood's 200th year distilling since it's foundation in 1821 sees it making the best whiskies in its history, thanks in part to a reinvigorated interest in the distillery's spirit as a single malt, though this Speyside gem wouldn't have made it to 200 years old if not for the essential role it played in the Johnny Walker blended whiskies.


An undeniably finessed whisky that responds equally well to sherry as it does to bourbon wood, giving those who invest in casks of its spirit a multitude of options further down the road when it comes to finishing and bottling.


We are pleased to have secured a number of 2021s in a year when many distillers are severely cutting their allocations of casks to the market and it is a particular coup barrels previously used to mature high-quality Bourbon whiskey in the United States. This is a cask that is destined for a very long life indeed and the gathering scarcity of young new make, in particular in high-quality new wood rather than refill barrel gives this tons of added value.

Pittyvaich Speyside Single Malt Bourbon Cask Finish 30YO Bottled 2020 1989 (1x70cl)
Inc. VAT: £370.00
1989

Pittyvaich Speyside Single Malt Bourbon Cask Finish 30YO Bottled 2020 1989 (1x70cl) Given Pittyvaich only operated for a few short decades it is among the rarest whiskies in the world and one that is rapidly developing a cult following. This Bourbon-matured 30 year old shows off the orchard fruit, baking spice and delicately sweet woodsmoke side of Speyside's character. More elegant than the Sherry-influenced expressions, here is a classic Speyside that almost evokes a mature 1er Cru Puligny-Montrachet (Folatières perhaps?) aromatic profile. A beauty at natural cask strength of 50.8%.
