Whisky Round Table

Tasting notes by Ruben Luyten - Posted in * News

Head over to Whisky Israel (by Gal) for this month’s Whisky Round Table.
The twelve of us are discussing this question:

The Single Cask. A distinct point in time, A unique combination, of a cask, maturation climate, location, and magic. the whisky world’s version of a “singularity”. No two casks are ever the same, and once finished, only a memory is left”.

  • What was the best single cask bottling you have had the pleasure of sampling . Where did you try it, did you own the bottle, and what made it so good?
  • Did you ever come by a single cask bottling which was really bad?
  • What’s your take on Vatting two extraordinary casks together? is a Quasi single cask vatting better than a “classic” single Cask?
