First introduced in 2016, the Double Cask series of single-malt whiskies, which also features the Double Cask 12 Years Old, attempts to bring Scottish and American distilling techniques together. The liquor is aged in both American and European oak casks, which have been seasoned with sherry. Time in both casks helps create a balanced single-malt Scotch that’s warm and punctuated by a soft sweetness.
The first of the new whiskies, the Double Cask 15 Years Old, has a golden butterscotch color and an aroma that features a fruity aroma that has hints of toffee, vanilla, honey, chocolate and oak. Its older sibling, the Double Cask 18 Years Old, has an amber honey tint and smells of dried fruits, ginger, toffee and has a hint of clove. Both single-malt whiskies clock in at 86 proof.
