Hidden Gems of June

At The Scotch Malt Whisky Society, we are on a passionate pursuit of the world’s most unique casks of whisky. Oftentimes the casks that turn out to be the most memorable happen to be the most unexpected. Here are three (3) Hidden Gems to consider for your home collection this month:

Cask No. 68.65 Flaurel Laurel

From the always intriguing Spicy & Sweet flavour profile comes this unexpected delight. Cask No. 68.65 Flaurel laurel is a 12-year-old Highland whisky with a profile that evokes a forest floor complete with pine needles, dried grass and a hint of dried ginger. The texture is thick and oily and with each sip comes something new to explore.

Cask No. 35.303 A Dazzling Display

Sometimes I just want a whisky that checks all the boxes. And if you like the classic Speyside style, it’s hard to look past Cask No. 35.303 A dazzling display. At 15 years of age, the whisky has evolved into a rich and complex spirit evocative of a summer orchard. Ripe pears and lemon zest are intertwined with raw honey and a touch of cedarwood in a symphony of flavours.

Cask No. 108.41 Burnt Dust

Speyside is the largest whisky producing region in Scotland by volume. But despite its massive output, very little of the liquid is peated. This makes Cask No. 108.41 Burnt dust a rarity on the spectrum of the many styles and flavours that Scotch whisky has to offer. A light yet smoky whisky, this one offers a beautiful combination of ripe orchard fruits, cold ash and as the name suggests, burnt dust.
