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.
New Yarmouth Distillery is a part of the Appleton Estate.
This is one of 257 bottles and is cask # BR21-08.
Holly’s Tasting Notes: Rich and thick caramel and honeycomb, nutty with Werther’s thickness – and this is all just on the nose! An amazingly intense nose. The palate is more of that rich, fall harvest honey with juicy fruit and orange and milk chocolate. The finish shows an herbal almost wintergreen side. It goes from thick sweetness to refreshing. A really amazing rum.
