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.

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

Burt,
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,
Spicy, sherry, very good!!

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,
Interesting, so I guess that's better than boring. Licorice spice

Deja,
It's not bad but I'm not in love with it.
