Complete Whisky Casks

One of the most compelling alternative assets on the market today is cask whisky. The rates of return achievable by whisky casks dwarf those of fine wine, with less risk though there is a more prohibitive cost of entry with casks starting around £3,600 (equivalent to HK$38,500 or SG$6,685) for newly filled barrels and hogsheads and progressing steadily up to 15-year olds at £15,000-£20,000 (equivalent to HK$161,200 - HK$215,000 or SG$27,845 - SG$37,130), at which point the value and cost can begin to truly soar.

Cru is pleased to offer cask sales from some of the finest, most sought after distilleries in Scotland with blue-chip icons Mortlach, Springbank, Laphroaig and Bowmore all attainable for the right price, while more boutique names including closed distilleries and rare single grains, offering incredible upside for comparatively reasonable sums of money.

With Cru's industry-leading automated sales platform designed for fine wine and the first in the world to be applied effectively to cask whisky, there is not where better to invest in this remarkable asset. Whether you're looking for en primeur new make casks, maturing casks with superb upside or venerably mature 25+-year-old single malts we have a uniquely varied supply chain and agile platform built upon our long-standing expertise and close contacts within the industry.

Aberlour Speyside Single Malt Refill Hogshead OLA 147 ABV 63.7% Full Cask 2013
Inc. VAT: £24,341.26

Aberlour Speyside Single Malt Refill Hogshead OLA 147 ABV 63.7% Full Cask 2013

The jewel in the Chivas crown, Aberlour has been a lynchpin of the Speyside landscape since its founding by James Fleming in 1879. Situated in the eponymous village of Aberlour between the River Spey and Ben Rinnes, Aberlour is as decorated a distillery as they come, winning 58 titles at the IWSC and ISC for their various expressions, presenting a quality and consistency matched by few if any distilleries in Scotland or around the world.


Aberlour is one of the most popular Speyside single malts for very good reason. Known and beloved for its classic, richly sherried style and incredible balance it is, for many, the first point of contact with both heavily sherried whisky and cask strength whisky in the form of the ever popular A'bunadh expression. Single cask renditions are however increasingly rare as the distillery's profile raises to such levels that more and more of the spirit is dedicated to distillery bottlings. Those that are found on the market are highly coveted and jealously sought-after.


A rare find on the cask market, this 8-year-old refill hogshead is a relative bargain given the strength of the brand and full naming rights. Sold with OLA numbers rather than RLA, it comes at a solid discount presenting the savvy investor with added upside along with the looming landmark age statements of 10 and 12 years. Suited for the long term as Aberlour's spirit ages exceptionally well, look for this to take on a softened bourbon sweetness and gentle orchard fruit characteristic over the years which will lend itself well to either finishing or to secondary maturation in Sherry or even Madeira wood.

Ardmore Highland Single Malt Hogshead Cask No. 86 Full Cask 2009
Inc. VAT: £17,226.00
2009

Ardmore Highland Single Malt Hogshead Cask No. 86 Full Cask 2009 If Tullibardine is the refined Highland Gentleman then Ardmore is the wild Claymore-wielding cateran with its intense, peat-infused spirit giving it added muscle over many of its Highland counterparts. That said, this is hardly a Highlander at all, hailing from the village of Kennethmont, Aberdeenshire on the borders of Speyside.

Originally founded in the 1890s by William Teacher to provide spirit for the blended whisky Teacher’s Highland Cream it is known as the peated Highland malt. While other distilleries experiment with peat, BenRiach, GlenDronach and Edradour, Ardmore is the only consistently heavily-peated Highlander and as such it has developed a devoted following.

Ardmore is a classic for independent bottlers and even at younger age statements the spirit can impress mightily with its intensity, richness and slightly waxy texture, not dissimilar from Clynelish sans the coastal element. A throwback to an earlier age when many if not all whiskies were at least somewhat peated this is a standalone remnant of Highland malt as it once was.

Craigellachie Speyside Single Malt Full Cask RLA 124.3 Pedro Ximenez Hogshead 60.5% 2014
Inc. VAT: £14,189.26
2014

Craigellachie Speyside Single Malt Full Cask RLA 124.3 Pedro Ximenez Hogshead 60.5% 2014 Not as soft as a typical Speyside, Craigellachie was referred to by Master of Malt as "the Bad Boy of Speyside" and is well known and prized for its more "masculine" character, it’s oily texture and meatiness. This is a distillery that does best in Bourbon barrels which allow the natural intensity of the spirit to shine through without cluttering it with over-sherried distraction.

Craigellachie has had a recent resurgence in attention, not least because they only started putting out official bottlings for the first time in decades in 2014. Previously making most of its impact in the White Horse blend which won Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible Blend of the Year in 2007 it was high time for a resurgence of the magical malt behind the brand.

A stylish rebranding and refocus on the distillery’s more intense, bold spirit has led to a new generation of devotees and prices for official distillery bottlings are high, giving a definitive reference point for valuation on casks that are held by patient owners for the years to come.

2010

Glen Spey Speyside Single Malt Refill Bourbon Hogshead RLA 115 ABV 59.9 Full Cask 2010

The Glen Spey distillery is one of the last true hidden gems of Speyside because although it has been operating since the 1870s in the heart of Scotland’s whisky country, it is only recently that it has developed a cult following of malt connoisseurs and devotees.


One of just a handful of distilleries to use spirit purifiers, which are in essence condensers which recharge a portion of the distillate beach into the pot still, Glen Spey has a reputation for producing a delicate, light-bodied spirit that ages with style and grace rather than power and richness. While only a few bottlings of Glen Spey have been released from the distillery (under the much-beloved Flora & Fauna series for instance) it is quickly gaining traction among independent bottlers and as such the reputation is on the rise.


With more than a decade already built into the age of this hogshead and a solid ABV pushing 60%, there is plenty of time to see this through to the 20-year mark and realise some impressive returns, or bottle a phenomenal whisky. Alternatively, you could just bottle it at 12-15 years (perhaps with a judicious cask finish) and have a spectacular, classy Speyside Single Malt on your hands.

Inc. VAT: £29,230.06
2012

Glenrothes Speyside Single Malt 1st Fill Oloroso Sherry Butt OLA 349.6 ABV 69.7% Full Cask 2013

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. After a rapturous reception to our recent offering of the 2011s and a follow up of 2012, we are pleased that we can offer a last butt of 2013 to our customers as well.


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.


Stored at Glenrothes distillery since distillation, this has not been regauged hence the cask being listed with OLA details but a sample drawn has indicated excellent colour extraction and a recent regauge of the 2011 casks we purchased registered RLA 262.5 which is par for the course on a 1st fill Sherry butt and we would expect this to be regauged in the coming weeks between 262 and 285 RLA or thereabouts with an ABV in the low to mid 60s, indicating excellent longevity.



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.

Inc. VAT: £24,815.26
2021

Holyrood 'Golden Promise' 1st Fill Oloroso Hogshead Cask No. 227 Full Cask 2021

The Holyrood Distillery is the first malt distillery to open in Edinburgh in nearly 100 years and its founding comes amidst a truly exciting time for the whisky industry in Scotland. With an innovative and ambitious spirit sweeping the country buttressed by steadily growing global demand for the world’s most famous distillate, Scotch whisky has been reinvigorated by new start-ups and micro distillers placing the ancestral homeland of whisky back at the forefront of this global industry.


Founded by Canadians Rob & Kelly Carpenter and Scot David Robertson, it is in many ways remarkable that Holyrood is the first malt distillery for so long to make a home in Edinburgh (Glenkinchie is well out of town in Pencaitland and North British is single grain only). The city has a long and proud history of brewing and distilling (legal and otherwise) and the city’s natural underground water supply is known through history as “the Charmed Circle” for its purity and abundance.


The focus in this casks is the barley variety; distilled from a mash bill of 100% pure Golden Promise barley - the same type used in the distillation of The Macallan and Glengoyne single malts, and filled them into 1st Fill Oloroso Sherry hogsheads (in which Golden Promise has shown excellent success at both the aforementioned distilleries) of the highest possible quality.


Filled in April of this year, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to follow the development of a new distillery with one of their earliest distillations. Imagine having a cask of 2001 Port Charlotte bought for under £17 IB per bottle when casks now go for £60,000-plus! The one difference being that Port Charlotte is just a sub-brand from the Bruichladdich distillery which had been running for many years already; here we have a new distillery entirely founded with a commitment to making the best possible whisky in the heart of Scotland’s capital.

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.

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. That being said, there is a decided benefit to having aged since distillation in a single cask, in particular if that cask is 1st fill Oloroso sherry.


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 specially selected for us; bourbon-sized barrels previously used for top-grade Oloroso sherry giving a smaller surface area than ex sherry hogsheads, butts or puncheons. Therefore the whisky will develop relatively quickly, rewarding the years more profoundly than lower-quality, lower cost refill barrels.

Macduff Highland Single Malt Refill Hogshead RLA 136.8 ABV 60.2% Full Cask 2014
Inc. VAT: £6,619.20
2014

Macduff Highland Single Malt Refill Hogshead RLA 136.8 ABV 60.2% Full Cask 2014 ”Beware the Thane of Fife…”

The Macduff Distillery has no connection to the literary nemesis of MacBeth, but instead takes its name from the nearby fishing port of the same name, which was formerly known by its Gaelic name of an Dùn but was purchased in whole by William Duff, the 1st Earl of Fife and renamed in honour of his legendary ancestor.

Best known as the source of the Glen Deveron single malt, which has at times been the name of the distillery -changing a number of times since its founding in the 1960s - Macduff is a perfectly designed malt distillery built to purpose and designed by renowned architect William Delmé-Evans.

A unique still set up using a gentle upward slant for the lyne-arms and a 90° kink in the swan necks, coupled with cold water condensers results in a nutty impressive spirit which retains a lot of the impurities needed for a characterful whisky. A nutty flavour profile with a struck match element in youth that lends itself to long ageing belies a spirit with excellent structure, perfect for complimenting cask finishes without losing its unique style, where softer whiskies can be obliterated by a characterful cask.

Managed by John Dewar & Sons alongside the legendary Aberfeldy and fellow cult stablemates Craigellachie, Aultmore and Royal Brackla, Macduff is a hidden gem with a lot of upside offering as it does excellent value even for casks with age built in, such as this 7-year-old hogshead.

North Point Highland Rum 1st Fill Madeira Hogshead OLA 140 ABV 65% Full Cask 2021

As single malt casks take off around the world with investors looking for something more engaging than traditional assets, the natural step for those who got in early is to look for the next big thing. For many in the cask investment world, that is Rum. With a variety of origins spanning the globe, Rum is an age worthy, highly-regarded product that is increasingly on the radar of investors looking for prestigious bottles as well as casks.


Cru is pleased therefore to have secured a partnership with the award-winning North Point Distillery on the northern coast of the Scottish Highlands (that’s right, Highland Rum!) and we are able to present a number of casks offered directly from the distillery and filled to our specifications in the finest casks available.


Matched perfectly to the Caribbean-styled spirit, we have selected a number of 1st Fill Port and Madeira casks filled with high ABVs in order to ensure a lengthy window for extended maturation. Given the sweeter nature of Rum’s sugar-based spirit, it is easy to be tempted to bottle young and indeed white rum is in essence new make rum spirit, but as they sage and take on the character of the casks we anticipate they will become truly thrilling spirits indeed.


This 1st Fill Ex-Madeira cask is practically a match made in heaven for North Point's robust spirit. Madeira casks given incredible richness, intense dried fruit and soaring complexity to which interacts perfectly with top-flight rum. Madeira aged rum is the core of the world-famous Foursquare Redoubtable Rum released last year to thunderous enthusiasm. The upside here is immense for someone looking to hold onto this Rum for the long term. Filled at 65% rather than 70% for the Port Casks, this is a carefully tailored spirit that will gently extract the intense richness of the Madeira cask without losing the intrinsic, nuanced beauty of North Point's spirit.


North Point Distillery, founded in 2020 on the Northern Coast of Scotland, is already a multi-award winning distillery. Garnering awards from the likes of the Scottish Food and Drink Awards, the Gin Guide, and most recently IWSC for their Rums and Gin.


North Point Distillery's flagship product, Pilot Rum, is a young Caribbean Styled Rum aged in Highland Whisky Casks for between 6 and 8 months. The young distillery is also working on a number of different cask finishes and ageings, including Port, Madeira, Bourbon, Islay malt, Bordeaux, Champagne, and Sherry.

North Point Highland Rum 1st Fill Port Hogshead OLA 140 ABV 70% Full Cask 2021

As single malt casks take off around the world with investors looking for something more engaging than traditional assets, the natural step for those who got in early is to look for the next big thing. For many in the cask investment world, that is Rum. With a variety of origins spanning the globe, Rum is an age worthy, highly-regarded product that is increasingly on the radar of investors looking for prestigious bottles as well as casks.


Cru is pleased therefore to have secured a partnership with the award-winning North Point Distillery on the northern coast of the Scottish Highlands (that’s right, Highland Rum!) and we are able to present a number of casks offered directly from the distillery and filled to our specifications in the finest casks available.


Matched perfectly to the Caribbean-styled spirit, we have selected a number of 1st Fill Port and Madeira casks filled with high ABVs in order to ensure a lengthy window for extended maturation. Given the sweeter nature of Rum’s sugar-based spirit, it is easy to be tempted to bottle young and indeed white rum is in essence new make rum spirit, but as they sage and take on the character of the casks we anticipate they will become truly thrilling spirits indeed.

Aberlour Speyside Single Malt Refill Hogshead OLA 147 ABV 63.7% Full Cask 2013
In Bond: £18,560.00

Aberlour Speyside Single Malt Refill Hogshead OLA 147 ABV 63.7% Full Cask 2013

The jewel in the Chivas crown, Aberlour has been a lynchpin of the Speyside landscape since its founding by James Fleming in 1879. Situated in the eponymous village of Aberlour between the River Spey and Ben Rinnes, Aberlour is as decorated a distillery as they come, winning 58 titles at the IWSC and ISC for their various expressions, presenting a quality and consistency matched by few if any distilleries in Scotland or around the world.


Aberlour is one of the most popular Speyside single malts for very good reason. Known and beloved for its classic, richly sherried style and incredible balance it is, for many, the first point of contact with both heavily sherried whisky and cask strength whisky in the form of the ever popular A'bunadh expression. Single cask renditions are however increasingly rare as the distillery's profile raises to such levels that more and more of the spirit is dedicated to distillery bottlings. Those that are found on the market are highly coveted and jealously sought-after.


A rare find on the cask market, this 8-year-old refill hogshead is a relative bargain given the strength of the brand and full naming rights. Sold with OLA numbers rather than RLA, it comes at a solid discount presenting the savvy investor with added upside along with the looming landmark age statements of 10 and 12 years. Suited for the long term as Aberlour's spirit ages exceptionally well, look for this to take on a softened bourbon sweetness and gentle orchard fruit characteristic over the years which will lend itself well to either finishing or to secondary maturation in Sherry or even Madeira wood.

Ardmore Highland Single Malt Hogshead Cask No. 86 Full Cask 2009
In Bond: £14,355.00
2009

Ardmore Highland Single Malt Hogshead Cask No. 86 Full Cask 2009 If Tullibardine is the refined Highland Gentleman then Ardmore is the wild Claymore-wielding cateran with its intense, peat-infused spirit giving it added muscle over many of its Highland counterparts. That said, this is hardly a Highlander at all, hailing from the village of Kennethmont, Aberdeenshire on the borders of Speyside.

Originally founded in the 1890s by William Teacher to provide spirit for the blended whisky Teacher’s Highland Cream it is known as the peated Highland malt. While other distilleries experiment with peat, BenRiach, GlenDronach and Edradour, Ardmore is the only consistently heavily-peated Highlander and as such it has developed a devoted following.

Ardmore is a classic for independent bottlers and even at younger age statements the spirit can impress mightily with its intensity, richness and slightly waxy texture, not dissimilar from Clynelish sans the coastal element. A throwback to an earlier age when many if not all whiskies were at least somewhat peated this is a standalone remnant of Highland malt as it once was.

2014

Craigellachie Speyside Single Malt Full Cask RLA 124.3 Pedro Ximenez Hogshead 60.5% 2014 Not as soft as a typical Speyside, Craigellachie was referred to by Master of Malt as "the Bad Boy of Speyside" and is well known and prized for its more "masculine" character, it’s oily texture and meatiness. This is a distillery that does best in Bourbon barrels which allow the natural intensity of the spirit to shine through without cluttering it with over-sherried distraction.

Craigellachie has had a recent resurgence in attention, not least because they only started putting out official bottlings for the first time in decades in 2014. Previously making most of its impact in the White Horse blend which won Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible Blend of the Year in 2007 it was high time for a resurgence of the magical malt behind the brand.

A stylish rebranding and refocus on the distillery’s more intense, bold spirit has led to a new generation of devotees and prices for official distillery bottlings are high, giving a definitive reference point for valuation on casks that are held by patient owners for the years to come.

Glen Spey Speyside Single Malt Refill Bourbon Hogshead RLA 115 ABV 59.9 Full Cask 2010

The Glen Spey distillery is one of the last true hidden gems of Speyside because although it has been operating since the 1870s in the heart of Scotland’s whisky country, it is only recently that it has developed a cult following of malt connoisseurs and devotees.


One of just a handful of distilleries to use spirit purifiers, which are in essence condensers which recharge a portion of the distillate beach into the pot still, Glen Spey has a reputation for producing a delicate, light-bodied spirit that ages with style and grace rather than power and richness. While only a few bottlings of Glen Spey have been released from the distillery (under the much-beloved Flora & Fauna series for instance) it is quickly gaining traction among independent bottlers and as such the reputation is on the rise.


With more than a decade already built into the age of this hogshead and a solid ABV pushing 60%, there is plenty of time to see this through to the 20-year mark and realise some impressive returns, or bottle a phenomenal whisky. Alternatively, you could just bottle it at 12-15 years (perhaps with a judicious cask finish) and have a spectacular, classy Speyside Single Malt on your hands.

2012

Glenrothes Speyside Single Malt 1st Fill Oloroso Sherry Butt OLA 349.6 ABV 69.7% Full Cask 2013

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. After a rapturous reception to our recent offering of the 2011s and a follow up of 2012, we are pleased that we can offer a last butt of 2013 to our customers as well.


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.


Stored at Glenrothes distillery since distillation, this has not been regauged hence the cask being listed with OLA details but a sample drawn has indicated excellent colour extraction and a recent regauge of the 2011 casks we purchased registered RLA 262.5 which is par for the course on a 1st fill Sherry butt and we would expect this to be regauged in the coming weeks between 262 and 285 RLA or thereabouts with an ABV in the low to mid 60s, indicating excellent longevity.



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.

Holyrood 'Golden Promise' 1st Fill Oloroso Hogshead Cask No. 227 Full Cask 2021

The Holyrood Distillery is the first malt distillery to open in Edinburgh in nearly 100 years and its founding comes amidst a truly exciting time for the whisky industry in Scotland. With an innovative and ambitious spirit sweeping the country buttressed by steadily growing global demand for the world’s most famous distillate, Scotch whisky has been reinvigorated by new start-ups and micro distillers placing the ancestral homeland of whisky back at the forefront of this global industry.


Founded by Canadians Rob & Kelly Carpenter and Scot David Robertson, it is in many ways remarkable that Holyrood is the first malt distillery for so long to make a home in Edinburgh (Glenkinchie is well out of town in Pencaitland and North British is single grain only). The city has a long and proud history of brewing and distilling (legal and otherwise) and the city’s natural underground water supply is known through history as “the Charmed Circle” for its purity and abundance.


The focus in this casks is the barley variety; distilled from a mash bill of 100% pure Golden Promise barley - the same type used in the distillation of The Macallan and Glengoyne single malts, and filled them into 1st Fill Oloroso Sherry hogsheads (in which Golden Promise has shown excellent success at both the aforementioned distilleries) of the highest possible quality.


Filled in April of this year, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to follow the development of a new distillery with one of their earliest distillations. Imagine having a cask of 2001 Port Charlotte bought for under £17 IB per bottle when casks now go for £60,000-plus! The one difference being that Port Charlotte is just a sub-brand from the Bruichladdich distillery which had been running for many years already; here we have a new distillery entirely founded with a commitment to making the best possible whisky in the heart of Scotland’s capital.

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.

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. That being said, there is a decided benefit to having aged since distillation in a single cask, in particular if that cask is 1st fill Oloroso sherry.


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 specially selected for us; bourbon-sized barrels previously used for top-grade Oloroso sherry giving a smaller surface area than ex sherry hogsheads, butts or puncheons. Therefore the whisky will develop relatively quickly, rewarding the years more profoundly than lower-quality, lower cost refill barrels.

2014

Macduff Highland Single Malt Refill Hogshead RLA 136.8 ABV 60.2% Full Cask 2014 ”Beware the Thane of Fife…”

The Macduff Distillery has no connection to the literary nemesis of MacBeth, but instead takes its name from the nearby fishing port of the same name, which was formerly known by its Gaelic name of an Dùn but was purchased in whole by William Duff, the 1st Earl of Fife and renamed in honour of his legendary ancestor.

Best known as the source of the Glen Deveron single malt, which has at times been the name of the distillery -changing a number of times since its founding in the 1960s - Macduff is a perfectly designed malt distillery built to purpose and designed by renowned architect William Delmé-Evans.

A unique still set up using a gentle upward slant for the lyne-arms and a 90° kink in the swan necks, coupled with cold water condensers results in a nutty impressive spirit which retains a lot of the impurities needed for a characterful whisky. A nutty flavour profile with a struck match element in youth that lends itself to long ageing belies a spirit with excellent structure, perfect for complimenting cask finishes without losing its unique style, where softer whiskies can be obliterated by a characterful cask.

Managed by John Dewar & Sons alongside the legendary Aberfeldy and fellow cult stablemates Craigellachie, Aultmore and Royal Brackla, Macduff is a hidden gem with a lot of upside offering as it does excellent value even for casks with age built in, such as this 7-year-old hogshead.

North Point Highland Rum 1st Fill Port Hogshead OLA 140 ABV 70% Full Cask 2021

As single malt casks take off around the world with investors looking for something more engaging than traditional assets, the natural step for those who got in early is to look for the next big thing. For many in the cask investment world, that is Rum. With a variety of origins spanning the globe, Rum is an age worthy, highly-regarded product that is increasingly on the radar of investors looking for prestigious bottles as well as casks.


Cru is pleased therefore to have secured a partnership with the award-winning North Point Distillery on the northern coast of the Scottish Highlands (that’s right, Highland Rum!) and we are able to present a number of casks offered directly from the distillery and filled to our specifications in the finest casks available.


Matched perfectly to the Caribbean-styled spirit, we have selected a number of 1st Fill Port and Madeira casks filled with high ABVs in order to ensure a lengthy window for extended maturation. Given the sweeter nature of Rum’s sugar-based spirit, it is easy to be tempted to bottle young and indeed white rum is in essence new make rum spirit, but as they sage and take on the character of the casks we anticipate they will become truly thrilling spirits indeed.


This 1st Fill Port Hogshead will add rich red fruit to the nose and bouquet while the subtle auburn reddish hue that one finds in port-aged whiskies will be evident here as well. When bottled we can expect this to be a glorious, complex rum with bright flavour profile and excellent concentration. Given the high fill ABV there is no hurry to bottle this at all.


North Point Distillery, founded in 2020 on the Northern Coast of Scotland, is already a multi-award winning distillery. Garnering awards from the likes of the Scottish Food and Drink Awards, the Gin Guide, and most recently IWSC for their Rums and Gin.


North Point Distillery's flagship product, Pilot Rum, is a young Caribbean Styled Rum aged in Highland Whisky Casks for between 6 and 8 months. The young distillery is also working on a number of different cask finishes and ageings, including Port, Madeira, Bourbon, Islay malt, Bordeaux, Champagne, and Sherry.
