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.
A. D. Rattray’s 60th Cask Collection release is our final selection of 2019.
21 years may separate the eldest and youngest whiskies in the range, however the bold, complex flavours of the Longmorn 2013 and Glenallachie 2012 prove that age isn’t everything.
Peat is strongly represented from the islands of Islay and Mull, while the further trio of Speyside malts range from soft, mellow Knockdhu, to rich, spicy Glenrothes via a vibrant, fruity Glen Spey.
Inchmurrin is the wildcard in the pack; Loch Lomond with a growing reputation.
Finally, at 26 years old, the venerable charm of the Auchroisk 1993 shows just why it deserves the full Vintage Cask Collection treatment.
