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.

Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
