Magic Cask

Blended Malt Scotch Whisky

A precocious whisky from a magic cask.

When we began a maturation trial in 2016, we hadn’t expected the whiskies to develop such deliciousness in so short a period of time. One-year-old malt spirit, made at a Speyside distillery famous for the robust character of its whiskies, was re-racked into first fill Oloroso-seasoned butts. Sampling them three years later, one particular cask - #2 – proved so compelling that we began to experiment.

A parcel of first fill Bourbon barrels containing whisky from the now closed Imperial Distillery had sat in our sample library for some years. Though delicious in its own right, as whiskymakers we couldn’t hit on the ideal match. The much younger malt whisky from the Oloroso-seasoned cask proved the ideal means to deepen the fruity and creamy profile of this rare parcel.

To mitigate any possible complications when it comes to delivering whisky to mainland Europe in 2021, some countries will receive Magic Cask this year, ahead of schedule. Whisky enthusiasts in the UK, USA and Canada can rest assured, however, that bottles will be available in the new year.

For those who appreciate lush fruitiness and fullness of body in their malt whiskies, it will be worth waiting for. Pour Magic Cask after dinner and savour its medley of autumn fruits and dark chocolate.
