The Mossburn Vintage Casks range are a collection of Single Malt Scotch Whiskies each issuing from a strictly limited and select batch of casks. Each numbered release will only ever yield a finite number of bottles. While this means that we can never replicate the particular character of this Single Malt, it also offers an opportunity to sample what we believe to be an exceptional example of the whisky made by one of Scotland’s most distinguished distilleries.

Not the most picturesque of buildings, Craigellachie Distillery is however ideally situated at the fork of the Spey and Fiddich Rivers. Its spirit is weighty even at birth from the long fermentation and adds floral and fruit weight as it matures – and in many respects that could also describe Marsala: full, round and fruity. So, when our Whisky maker, Neil MacLeod Mathieson acquired some Marsala casks he was intrigued to see how these two would go together. The result is a well tamed whisky with distinct nuance.

Nutty and floral with dried apricots, orange marmalade and some sweet spice on the nose. The palate is quite long and complex, soft oak spice with a touch of fire. The finish brings in red fruit notes and some stewed summer fruit and a light touch of caramel.

This select Single Malt Scotch Whisky has been bottled at cask strength without any colouring or chill filtration.
