A new series of Single Cask bottlings from The Uncharted Whisky Company.
Rumours – Chapter 1. An enigma cask from an un-named Islay single malt whisky distillery. Aged for 15 years in an exceptional ex-bourbon barrel, this elusive dram was bottled at natural cask strength of 56.1% individually labelled by hand and is proudly offered to you free from colouring or chill-filtration.
This rarity harks from a stunningly good distillery and single casks from here are as sparse as they are extraordinary. This ex-bourbon barrel has voyaged to us from the salty shores of a peaty isle, yielding 295 alluring bottles.
Fifteen years this smouldering spirit has matured, creating something very special indeed!
But where did Uncharted Whisky Co. find this extraordinary spirit? No one knows the real answer, only second-hand guesses... only rumours.
"A rich and heady Islay, beautifully aged with fragrant peat smoke, stone fruit and a complete lack of medicinality."
You'll just have to buy a bottle and try it yourself eh?
