The Loch Fyne The Living Cask Batch 6
50cl / 43.6% abv
Why have one Living Cask, when you can have two? Inspired by our award-winning The Living Cask 1745, we created a second cask of equal quality. To begin, we part filled it with our 1745, which we then topped up with a selection of carefully chosen Highland malts. We christened this The Living Cask ‘Batch 1’. Because of how it was made, stocks were limited, and it soon sold out.
We then set about creating Batch 2. Taking the depleted stocks of Batch 1, we poured in a selection of delicious Speyside single malts. Once again, stock was limited and The Living Cask Batch 2 sold out as well. Next came Batch 3 – we took what remained of Batch 2 and added some amazing sherry cask single malts. Batch 4 followed, taking the depleted stocks of Batch 3 and adding some of the best bourbon cask single malts we could find. The fifth batch introduced ex-bourbon casks to the mix, bringing a mellower tone than its predecessors. Batch 6 has been influenced by the addition of more Islay malts, returning The Living Cask to its smoky 1745 roots.
And so the process will go on! The Living Cask® will never die and will always be an evolution of its Islay origins. Every batch we craft is different, meaning each intriguing expression is a limited edition release, and part of an ongoing series which is as collectable as it is delicious.
Start your remarkable collection now, and remember, no two batches are ever the same. (Nor are three, four or… you get the picture...!)
Nose: sweet with warm vanilla fudge and toasted coconut, before sweet smoke, peat and a salty sea spray.
Palate: richly textured with grassy notes, tobacco leaf and pine needles; the smoke is subtle, balanced with barley, wood spice, liquorice and lemon zest.
Finish: earthy smoke and black pepper lingering.
