A very limited cask strength blend from Usquaebach.
You know us – give us good storytelling and even better Spirits and we don’t need much else. A Scottish independent bottler, FABLE Whisky sources the rarest single cask Whiskies and brings them to you through the art of storytelling, animation, and illustration. Legendary Scottish myths are brought to life and hand-selected Single Malts are found from across Scotland’s best and little-known distilleries. They bottle the Whisky straight from the cask or leave it to further mature to deliver the most exclusive distinct flavors.
Did you know that the origin of the modern-day word ‘Whisky’ comes from the word Usquaebach, pronounced Oos-Ke-Bah, which translates to “Water of Life” in Scottish Gaelic. Steeped in history, The Usquaebach brand was founded in 1877 with its ‘Old-Rare’ recipe dating back to the 1700s. Dedicated to tradition of the craft to this day, Usquaebach’s renowned Master Blender finds the finest Single Malts and aged Grain Whiskies from the most renowned distillers in the Scottish Highlands.
Usquaebach 'An Ard Ri' Cask Strength Blended Malt Scotch Whisky is named after the word ‘The High Kind’ in Scottish Gaelic. Drawn from over 20 Highlands' Single Malt Whiskies, some of the Single Malts in the blend are aged up to 21 years. Non-chill filtered, the final blend is married in Sherry casks and bottled at cask strength for full flavors of dark fudge, worn leather, and sherries wood. Quantities produced are unfortunately very limited.
