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.

Highland Park Orkney Single Malt Full Cask RLA 142.6 60.3% 1st Fill Hogshead Cask No. 623 2014
Inc. VAT: £65,160.00
2014

Highland Park Orkney Single Malt Full Cask RLA 142.6 60.3% 1st Fill Hogshead Cask No. 623 2014 Highland Park Distillery is one of the world’s greatest single malt whiskies. In 2018, Highland Park ranked 2nd behind only Macallan in volume of auction sales. Located on the island of Orkney, the distillery was founded in 1798 by Magnus Eunson. Eunson was a colourful character who was a butcher and church warden by day and an illicit whisky smuggler by night!

Highland Park is the only distillery to use peat from Orkney in the distillation process. This gives the resulting whisky its iconic smoky, slightly sweet flavour, rather than the briny, medicinal peatiness more common in Islay whiskies. Today it is one of the world’s most recognised and collectable whiskies.

Single cask bottlings of Highland Park command exceptionally high prices in the secondary market. Filled on the 6th of November 2014, this hogshead is a phenomenal opportunity to add a cask of one of Scotland's most legendary whiskies to your portfolio. Most recently re-gauged at 136.8 RLA and 59.9% ABV this is maturing at an even pace and offers excellent medium and long-term upside. With 5 and a half years already aged into this cask it is a tremendous value compared with new make spirit that, frankly, costs a similar amount.
Tasting Note
This is a pleasant surprise! Highland Park can often be sherried to the extent that much of the imprint of its unique location and raw materials is subsumed into a standardised Single Malt but this is maritime, peaty, complex and satisfying. That unique Orcadian peat is shining through with glorious smouldering intensity while the salty sea breeze comes through with an oily, seaweed-y edge. A touch of smouldering pine logs on a fire adds to the experience which is finished off by a fiery flourish on the end. Give it time to calm down but this is a cracking good cask.
