Perfect Speyside NAS for the cherry lovers.

Aberlour, residing in a picturesque town of - yes, Aberlour, just a shout away from the legendary Walkers Shortbread bakery, has Speyside in its genes. Betting on fruit-forward character with a Sherry cask soul, they create six Whiskies in the core of their Single Malt range.

After the blockbuster of A'bunadh comes the new kid on the blocks of Aberlour and it's a cheeky and fun NAS Single Malt matured in a trio of casks (European and American Oak). 'Casg Annamh' is Gaelic for 'rare cask' and as the name implies, this Batch #1 is the very first. The Casg is a perfect introduction to Whiskies that were matured in Sherry casks and this particular batch spent some time in former Oloroso Sherry vessels. Young and fresh aromas accompanied by lovely sweet flavors will surely make you enamored with this kind of Whisky and we're sure many batches are bound to come after this one.

Ildefonso
Ildefonso,
Simply one of the best
 
Lynn
Lynn,
I purchased this while on vacation in Aberlour Scotland without tasting beforehand. It has become my new favorite over their 12 year. If I could afford it I’d purchase a case to put away for a long time and always have some on hand. The moment it hits your tongue, it envelopes ALL your taste buds and senses. WONDERFUL and please don’t change a thing.
 
Nellie
Nellie,
Sweet finish with a kick of heat
 
Adam
Adam,
Very easy to drink with nice buttery taste.
 
Thomas
Thomas,
Not bad but like so many NAS whiskies, the immaturity comes through a bit. I'd buy the Aberlour 12 double cask over this but not a bad Scotch.
 
Cate
Cate,
It is very good. It has great taste and drinks easy but for the price, I prefer the 12
 
Brian
Brian,
Interesting tastes of honey, butter, and dark fruits with a lingering warm finish. Very easy to drink neat.
 
Sean
Sean,
Not a lot of flavor. Very bland and not too smooth
 
Dan
Dan,
Fantastic. Aberlour's answer to what I like to call the "A'Bunadh Dilemma." Love the A'Bunadh taste, but not always up for the cask strength kick. Casg Annamh is awesome. So good. Buying more bottles now!
 
Matejka
Matejka,
One of my favourites. Complex, strong tasty drink. The color, the nose, and the taste is beautiful. Nearly perfect in my opinion.
 
Michael
Michael,
This was not for me. It reminded me of every cheap bar whisky I've had. The smell was ok, and the first flavor that hits your mouth is nice, but it immediately turns to pure alcohol. The after taste is not pleasant either.
Michael
Michael,
Also, I just noticed that the flavor spiral that came with the sample pack (what about Nas) is very different than the one above. Mine shows mostly oak, burnt caramel, sherry, spicy notes, dark chocolate, and continues from there. There's no butter, pepper, or smokiness in mine.
Antti
Antti,
It is a classic, balanced, Single Malt Scotch Whisky with a rich birth of Bourbon and Sherry casks; while a balanced life leads to a short & warm death.
 
Jon
Jon,
Awesome! Plum, straberry, fruit wine.

guest,
Amazing product and masterpiece for the price range, soft buttery flavor along with pepper, spices and oak slide along each other, the felling of apricot and spring mild Smokey sherry cask followed by start session BBQ makes you raise the eye brows- excursions and new beginnings with the true nose of aberlour - wonderful
 
Thomas
Thomas,
Decent but not one I'd buy a bottle of. As a lover of sherry cask aged scotch I found this one to be a bit harsh. I've had some decent NAS whiskies but my experience is nothing can beat age and there is a reason they don't put an age statement on here. Probably be excellent if they allowed it to age a few years
 
Burton
Burton,
The aroma of honey, sorghums, and caramel. In the mouth it is viscous spicy butter and fruit. The 48% abv is obvious and welcome. A winner!
 
Will
Will,
Spicy, sherry, very good!!
 
James
James,
Missing the oak on front. Definitely getting the caramel and cinnamon. I’ll try this one again for sure.
 
Dan
Dan,
On the thin side. Very mild nose. Oak and smoke. A little spice on the finish. A bit of water brought out the spice more. Not a favorite.
 
David
David,
Great notes and lasting flavor!!!
 
Aaron
Aaron,
Sweet and peppery, but tastes hollow, like it's missing something. Still good, but needs something smoother to round it out.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Pretty fantastic stuff. Flavors reminiscent of a nice bourbon. Smooth, caramel, spice, and lots of oak come out in this. Not overpowering like Islay region scotches can be. Nice full mouthfeel.
 
Scott
Scott,
Sorry to say this didn’t do it for me. Really didn’t care for it neat but a small ice cube opened up the flavors a bit. Not very dynamic IMO
 
Kevin
Kevin,
Spiciness comes forward in the taste but especially in the finish. Could definitely drink some more but not at the top of my list.
 
Mathew
Mathew,
Tastes and smells like weak sweet tea and medicinal alcohol. The tasting notes talk about cherries and butter and smoke. I don’t know what they were drinking but I don’t think it was this.
 
Katherine
Katherine,
Interesting, so I guess that's better than boring. Licorice spice
 
Deja
Deja,
It's not bad but I'm not in love with it.
