Single Cask Nation Craigellachie 2008 10 Year Scotch

Arriving earlier than anticipated, we’re pleased to announce the launch of our fourth retail release in the United States. This release marks the beginning of a new partnership with ImpEx who will represent Single Cask Nation retail nationally. As you can imagine, we’re incredibly excited by this latest development and there will be plenty more single cask offerings in 2019! ImpEx has a proven track record of supporting independent bottlers (Chieftains and Exclusive Malts, for example) as well as independently owned distillers (Kilchoman, Penderyn, and Ohishi immediately come to mind). Fear not, though, Joshua and Jason will still be flying around the country in support of both retail and online sales.

We continue to update our distributor list so you’ll know when Single Cask Nation retail has made it to your state. Watch closely in 2019 for new forays into mezcal and American single malt as well as a return to more single cask rum. In the meantime, here are the details for the three Scotch single casks in this fourth release:

Single Cask Nation Craigellachie 2008 10 Year Scotch

Craigellachie 10yo, refill Bourbon Hogshead

This cask bottling, distilled in May 2008, spent ten years maturing in a refill bourbon hogshead. It was bottled at cask strength in May 2018 at a whopping 67.3% ABV! Cask #900305 yielded 288 bottles.

  • Color: White tea
  • Nose: Opens with a pungent thick peat reek but in time a sweetness develops with candy necklaces and pear drop hard candies, then a brininess that also includes ground grey pepper (unmistakable cask presence)
  • Palate: Meaty and juicy upon entry with warm malted barley, powdered confectioner’s sugar, a burst of ground clove, Garibaldi biscuits, and distinct barrel char!
  • Finish: Long and warming with lingering barrel char, dark chocolate with sea salt, more confectioner’s sugar, and damp oak
  • On the label: Known for it’s typically heavy style of whisky, this Craigellachie falls right into line. Its departure, however, is in the heavily peated character of this spirit. Dank and pungent with earthy smoke, however, don’t fret, rich fruits, an oily mouthfeel, and a bread-like malty backbone remain
