A brand new A Rich Pour column for Scotch enthusiasts...

Now, another in the A Rich Pour series of articles that will be of particular interest to fans of wine cask matured single malt Scotches...



A Rich Pour – No. 17: Wine Casks at Work in the Land of Scotch

Monday March 9th, 2009
Doug Kuebler (jazznut)

The concept of placing distilled whisky into a used wine cask may seem slightly incongruous at first. Why not simply allow wood alone to have its say in enhancing flavour while the spirit slumbers and mellows down through the years? As anyone who has experienced single malts from Aberlour and Macallan (to name but two Highland sites renowned for Sherry cask maturation) or some of the increasingly prevalent special editions from other distilleries knows, though, wine casks seem to be practically everywhere in Scotland these days. Yet this phenomenon is not entirely new.

As always, I hope you enjoy the read!
My whisky adventure began at the age of nine.
Good things DO take time!
