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.
Tomatin Distillery is in the Highlands just outside of Inverness. Known for their fruity and grassy unpeated malts but they do make peated malts as well. This expression is unpeated. Pedro Ximenez Sherry or “PX” sherry is a thick, syrupy, and very sweet style of sherry which really would add to the richness of this Tomatin.
