What is Cask Strength Whisky?
This is whisky drawn straight from a cask that is non chill filtered or been reduced in strength. Many single malt and blended whiskies are usually bottled at 40% alcohol. But with each Cask Strength Edition bottled at its natural strength varies from batch to batch. For example The Glenlivet 16 year old bottled in 2004 was 56.6% but the latest batch in 2006 is 59.7%. This makes each batch quite unique and is close as you get to experiencing a dram of whisky straight from a cask!
Will There Be More Releases?
Yes, the latest release is from Glenburgie Distillery and will be available for sale in the very near future.
One of our most recent additions to the Cask Strength releases is Scapa 14 year old. Scapa is only one of two distilleries on the beautiful northern island of Orkney and is the only ‘island’ malt produced by Chivas Brothers.
We will continue to search for special casks from the cellars of Chivas Brothers to add to the exclusive selection of Cask Strength Editions already available so please let us know if you wish to be informed of any new releases
