Casg Annamh Scotch Whisky
Batch release 0001.
Translating as ‘Rare Cask’ in Gaelic, Casg Annamh is created from a limited number of carefully selected casks. These Spanish oak Oloroso Sherry casks/butts have a significant influence on the non-chill filtered liquid and perfectly complement Aberlour’s distillate flavour, bringing sweet and rich notes. Casg Annamh is a distinctively rich Single Malt providing adventurous malt lovers with the ideal introduction to Sherry cask matured whiskies.
Nestling in the heart of Speyside is the village of Aberlour where a source of exceptionally pure spring water known as St Drostan’s Well inspired James Fleming to build his distillery in 1879. The richness of the natural environment combined with the soft and pure water creates Aberlour single malt, a distinctive whisky of generous character.
Casg Annamh means ‘rare cask’ in Gaelic. This expression is significantly influenced by the finest quality, hand-selected Oloroso Sherry casks. Casg Annamh has been matured three types of cask, the European oak Sherry casks and two different types of American oak casks, resulting in a rich and intense whisky. The fruity flavours are balanced perfectly with spicy notes of liquorice, ginger and cinnamon.
