The Bain’s Cape Mountain Whisky 21-Year-Old Double Cask Finish Travel Retail and Brand Home Exclusive is an elegant expression of the World’s Best Grain Whisky, seasoned in ex-sherry casks.
The whisky started life as Bain’s Cape Mountain Whisky and spent an additional ten years in older.
American oak before transferred to seasoned Amontillado and Manzanilla sherry casks for a final six years’ maturation.
Only three of each sherry cask were selected for the final whisky, which reveals typical sherry influences of nuts, dried fruit, and lingering spice.
Beautiful dark, rich amber in colour with complex layers of fruit and spice from the seasoned sherry casks blending seamlessly with the sweeter notes of the single grain whisky.
Nose: Sticky toffee pudding, Turkish apricots, sultanas, coconut tea biscuits and hints of flower blossom.
Taste: Cinnamon, almonds and hazelnuts with delightful salted caramel and hints
Finish: Rich, lingering with caramel and spice on the finish.
