Aberlour Casg Annamh Batch 4 Single Malt Scotch Whisky - Spirits Worth Raising

Aberlour Casg Annamh Batch 4 Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Aberlour Distillery, founded by James Fleming in 1879, is located in the Scottish region of Strathspey, the home of Speyside single malt Scotch whisky. Under UK legislation, Speyside is a protected region for Scotch whisky distilling. The River Spey, and the proximity of barley farms and the Atlantic port of Garmouth make this dry and warm area a perfect place for whisky makers. Strathspey has the greatest number of distilleries of any of the whisky producing areas of Scotland, and about 50 percent of the countrys whisky is made by some 50 distilleries in this region. After the founders death, Aberlour Distillery changed a few hands, and joined the Pernod Ricard family in 1975, when the French group acquired Campbell Distilleries. The Aberlour brand is now managed by the groups subsidiary Chivas Brothers, whose portfolio comprises 13 malt distilleries, a grain distillery, and two gin distilleries. Aberlour Distillery, which has won an outstanding list of trophies and medals, is strongly rooted in the community, and makes its generously multi-layered whiskies using pure, soft Ben Rinnes water from nearby natural springs and the finest locally sourced barley. The founders mantra of Let the deed show, is strongly manifested in the end product, and the distillery makes some of the best single malt Scotch whiskies being produced today. The distillerys whiskies are generally double-cask matured for a minimum of 12 years, first in ex-American Oak barrels, followed by finest hand-picked Oloroso Sherry butts. Casg Annamh means Rare Cask in Gaelic, and this expression is created from a limited number of carefully selected barrels. Aberlour Casg Annamh is triple-cask matured, using European oak sherry casks and two types of American oak cask. Casg Annamh is a distinctively rich single malt providing adventurous malt lovers with the ideal introduction to Sherry cask matured whiskies. This is the fourth release in the series of this limited batch whisky. Pick up a bottle today!
