The whisky fairies are sprinkling a wee bit of fairy dust for the holidays! The three (3) exceptionally rare single malts that follow will be a welcomed addition to any whisky collection! From the shores of Islay to the shores of British Columbia, these precious drams are rarely seen and in very short supply.
Let’s start with a unicorn from Islay in Cask No. 127.45 Leviathan - the Society hasn’t bottled a cask from Distillery 127 since 2016 and we’re really excited that a few bottles made it to the US! Aged 20 years and peated to 40ppm phenols, this is a robust and expressive malt that combines richness and intensity with poise and precision. Very few malts capture the sense of place that this cask does. We envy those fellow Society members who secure a bottle! Next, we head due east across the North Sea to Denmark for Cask No. 141.2 Prowling the undergrowth. Scotland meets Scandinavia in a most delicious way! A combination of malted barley from the UK and barley malted locally with fresh nettles picked from the surrounding forest creates a distillate that’s oily and complex. Microscopic yields from this distillery make any offering a special occasion. Share this with someone who enjoys an old school Highland style. Finally, we head to Vancouver Island, Canada for a coastal malt made from 100% estate grown barley. Cask No. 152.2 Cornucopia possesses rich and heady aromas and flavours to unpack. Oscillating between tropical fruits, vanilla sweets and exotic spices, the creamy and indulgent delivery makes it easy to understand why this distillery is racking up the whisky awards at breakneck speed! It’s time to indulge and treat yourself!
