Out of stock
Founded by Robin Tucek in 1995, Blackadder is another independent bottler coming to you from Scotland but bottling not just whisky but also rum and other spirits. They are iconic for their “raw casks” which leaves all sediment from the cask in the bottle. Literally little pieces of cask and char are still in the bottle!
First ever release of Cask Strength Chimera
Chimera is a new range of BLACKADDER Vatted Malt Whiskies.
In mythology a Chimera was a monstrous creature made up of multiple animals. Don’t worry though, we at Blackadder haven’t gone mad ! Today’s Chimera is a single organism made of mixed species, the result of which is often breathtaking. As we are best known for our single cask bottlings, we felt Chimera would be the perfect name for this exciting range of exclusive blended malt whiskies. All Chimera are vatted together for extra aging after which they are bottled from the individual single casks in which their constituent malt whiskies have been married together.
No two Chimeras will ever be the same; from the sources of the constituent whiskies to the fingerprints left by the individual casks.
Chimera 01 is a mix of four different Single Malt Whiskies. One is a Single Islay from refill cask, One is from First Fill ex Bourbon cask, one is a Sherry Cask Highland and one is a Sherry Cask Speyside.
We have to use the horrible term Blended Malt to keep it legal but we prefer to call this beautifully crafted whisky a Vatted Malt.
Chimera will never be the same, always different. Even as you enjoy your first dram you will notice changing sensations from sip to sip. Chimera – taste and enjoy the difference!
