The Blackadder Raw Cask whiskies are complete cask whiskies bottled containing cask sediment.
Blackadder’s philosophy is very simple – they believe that the Cask is King. Sixty to seventy percent of the flavors in a whisky are taken up slowly from the cask as the spirit lies maturing in the warehouse. The action of changing temperature draws the spirit in and out of the cask. Every cask is unique, with its own fingerprint. This is why they bottle most of their whiskies from single casks. They don’t believe in chilling or otherwise heavily filtering their whiskies, and they never, repeat never, add caramel coloring and flavoring to their spirits. They have always believed the personalities of their whiskies are colorful enough.
Indian Single Malt bottled by a Scotch Independent Bottler | Cask #BA33-2022
Amrut is truly the pioneer of Indian Single Malt around the world. Most “whisky” produced in India would be classified as rum here in the United States so producing a Scottish-style single malt was a huge risk but wow did it pay off! The word Amrut is from the Sanskrit language and means “nectar of the gods” or “elixir of life”. Producing alcohol since 1948, they use all 6-row Indian barley which is transported to the distillery in Bengaluru, the garden city of India, 3,000 feet above sea level and has a tropical climate.
Research done in Scotland has shown that Amrut Single Malt Whisky aged in Bangalore, India ages approximately 3.5 times faster than Scottish-aged whisky. This is due to the altitude of 3000 ft above sea level and the constant climate temperature of 78 degrees F. If on average an Amrut Whisky is aged for 4.5 years in Bangalore, then it has the smoothness and profile of a Whisky aged in Scotland for 12 – 15 years.
