Whisky Round Table

Posted by: Ruben Luyten 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?

  • Jorn: I agree, the first expressions tend to go up in value the most, - ofcourse -, but do you really think the Bowmore DC 2 will sink below 150,00 euro? N
  • WhiskyNotes: I tend to disagree. I would just wait for n°III and make sure you inform your favourite retailer that you want one beforehand. Buying a hyped product
  • Jorn: It's worth 150 allright, but mainly from a collector's point of view. That's where the market is. Like precious little stamps (Nothing wrong with that
