Single cask whisky is at the heart of A. D. Rattray. We go to great lengths to source interesting and unusual casks from the six traditional whisky regions of Scotland. Each distillery represented is different and every cask is unique.
We curate 4 releases of our Cask Collection per year, choosing between 6 and 8 casks for each collection. Our cask are evaluated over time and are selected for inclusion only when we judge they have reached the peak of perfection.
Once a cask is selected, the spirit is rough filtered, removing any fragments of charred wood left behind by the cask, and then bottled at natural colour and cask strength, with no chill-filtration. There are therefore a limited number of bottles from each cask.
This process retains the true essence of the distillery character and cask maturation for your enjoyment.
Speyside, Highland and Islay are all represented across the 7 casks selected for our 67th Cask Collection release. Each cask displays what we consider to be classic regional character, with the four Speysiders showing versatility and drinkability, the two Highlanders have a rich and full-bodied texture, whilst the oily peat and coastal smoke of the Islay malt simply couldn’t be from any other place.
Highlights in this release depend entirely therefore on the drinker’s style of choice. Those familiar with our Casks of Scotland range can be reliably guided by region to take the next step from enjoying our small batch 46% single malts, to savouring the pinnacle of spirits, a single cask single malt Scotch whisky at cask strength.
