Strathearn Single Malt – Casks 028 and 044 (57% ABV) have been produced using whisky that has been matured in small 50 litre, octave sized casks.
|Strathearn Distillery launches second batch of single cask bottlings|
Each of the two casks are said to vary, with Cask 028 delivering youthful notes of pineapple and sherbet on the nose, followed by a palate which is rich and malty with hint of vanilla and a peppercorn spice. Cask 044, is said to deliver notes of orange and toffee on the nose, followed by a sweet fruit, toffee and oak led palate.
Commenting on the news, Tony Reeman-Clark, Founder of Strathearn Distillery said: "Strathearn spirit is all about quality and flavour. We’ve waited another six months to start bottling our whisky as the small 50 litre casks develop and mellow into outstanding Single Malt Scotch. We’re thrilled to get another batch to market and feel that the tasting should no longer be limited to members of staff and shared with the wider public and especially all of our followers!”
He went onto say: “In March, we sent David Hogg, our Distiller and Whisky Wizard, into the bonded store and he emerged and selected Casks 028 and 044 as our next release after many long hours tasting – tough work. Others will follow, if we dare send David back in there”.
Strathearn, which is one of Scotland's smallest distilleries, was established in 2013 by Tony Reeman-Clark who has a passion for whisky and small-scale distilling. Production began in the October of 2013, with their first cask being filled with Strathearn new-make spirit. Strathearn also produces a range of highly acclaimed Scottish gins.
