The Vaults Collection 

Cask No. 29.289

Gusto and gratitude


We were transported to a stately home in the Caribbean, to a room full of 19th-century mahogany and cedrela wood furniture. The taste was out of this world: words could not do it justice, but we tried. Fine tannins, ground ginger, smoked marmalade, freshly ground coffee beans and caramelised French toast. A drop of water and, as we burned driftwood on a Caribbean beach, we felt it was the perfect time to recite the poem Love After Love by Derek Walcott which ends with the line "Sit. Feast on your life." Following 21 years in an ex-bourbon hogshead, we transferred this whisky into a first fill Spanish oak oloroso hogshead.

About The Vaults Collection:

The Vaults Collection is a selection of the finest and rarest single cask, single malt whisky, set aside from The Scotch Malt Whisky Society’s most remarkable stocks over the years. They have been released from the depths of our treasure trove of casks, after decades of slow maturation and careful nurturing. The Vaults Collection represents the whisky lover’s dream: chance to journey back into whisky history, including the opportunity to experience styles or distilleries that no longer exist. The Collection takes its name from the Society’s historical home at The Vaults in Leith, Scotland’s oldest commercial building in continuous use whose connection with the drinks world dates back to the 12th century. Each bottle has a specially designed label and is offered in a beautiful wooden box.
