  • Personality

    As a cask comes to maturity, Finn curates sampling sessions in interesting and relaxing environments, with friends, whisky experts and trusted partners to discover the personality of each cask and gauge the experience each dram evokes.

  • Distillery character

    All the best distillers pride themselves on crafting whisky with a distinctive flavour, which is determined by the water source, grain and barley, the peat and malting, and their distilling processes. High quality original spirit is integral to every cask we bottle.

  • Cask influence

    The cask itself interacts with the whisky over time. The type of wood plays a big role, as do treatments such as the whiskies are aged in a variety of types of casks. The whiskies are aged in former sherry or bourbon casks, augmenting the cask influence. External conditions such as air temperature, pressure and humidity also interact with the cask producing a knock-on effect that makes the spirit inside unique.

  • Balance

    Finn uses these factors to balance each FT whisky experience. He may sample a cask and decide to leave it on the rack, allowing age to further develop its personality. He might decide to re-rack a whisky in a new cask to add a finishing touch. Or, he might simply deem it ready. When Finn decides the flavour is perfectly balanced, it’s time to bottle the whisky.

"Miltonduff is rarely encountered as a single malt, and old expressions like this are almost impossible to find. This is a cask that showcases the true heart of the distillery."

Cask Story

This 35 Year Old Miltonduff is one of a kind. Added to the collection while my grandfather was still producing his famous Golden Beneagles blend, it is the only Miltonduff cask remaining from this bygone era.

Miltonduff is rarely encountered as a single malt, and old expressions like this are almost impossible to find. This is a cask that showcases the true heart of the distillery. Matured in a refill hogshead, the 35 years of ageing have allowed the fruity and floral distillery character to deepen while still remaining delicate and not overly dominated by wood. More than three decades of maturation has produced hints of zesty lime and aromatic spices, while notes of star anise and liquorice add even more fragrant complexity to this gentle giant.

These 220 bottles will never be repeated. It is a cask with which I am sad to part but delighted to share. An inimitable Rare release.
