Vintage Cask Collection

Our Vintage Cask Collection represents the most exquisite and rare whiskies in our portfolio. These casks have been selected from some of Scotland’s most respected distilleries, bottled at vintages rarely found.

While sourcing and monitoring our individual casks over the years, truly exceptional casks come to light. When we judge that cask has reached its prime, we bottle it as part of our Vintage Cask Collection. We bottle is in its purest and most natural form, so the fullest flavours and true characteristics are retained for your enjoyment. We simply rough filter the spirit and bottle it at cask strength and natural colour, and without chill-filtering. 

As is the nature of single cask whiskies, and in particular older whiskies, these expressions are extremely limited in number.

    Rhosdhu is unpeated Loch Lomond single malt from a configuration of pot stills not used since the 1990s. An extremely rare cask bursting with a medley of ripe fruit and spice, the underlying waxy character is highly sought after and characteristic of a much older malt.

This 33-year-old bourbon hogshead from perhaps the most highly regarded of all Scotland’s grain distilleries, offers an incredible array of aromas and flavour, with a smoothness to match many a malt of a similar age.

    Further Information

    Hard to find (a mile north-west of the tiny hamlet of Mulben), difficult to pronounce (“Orth-rusk”), and mainly bottled under a different name (Singleton), you’d be forgiven for thinking Diageo want to keep Auchroisk a secret. With beautiful floral top-notes, we’d happily shout about this bourbon hogshead from the rooftops.
