Mossburn Signature Casks Series | Cheers

Independent bottling company Mossburn has created individual blends to showcase the archetypal styles of two Scotch whisky regions, the Islands and Speyside, in the Mossburn Signature Casks Series.

Neil Macleod Mathieson, Whisky Maker at Mossburn, says: “We have taken the classic flavour profile of whiskies from two of the most prominent Scotch producing regions – Speyside and Islands – and elevated them, adding complexity, depth and intense flavour while respecting the character of each of the regions.” 

“The traditional peated flavour historically associated with Island whiskies is well known, and we have looked to build on these more aromatic phenols with additional oak spice and vanilla to enhance the typical maritime flavours. The fruity profile of Speyside has allowed us to enrich the flavour and broaden the finish of the spirit whilst maintaining the honey and heather florality of the finest Speyside malts,” continues Mathieson. 

Mossburn Signature Casks series bottlings are available from major whisky retailers, including Peake Wines, Bottle Apostle, The Wine Reserve and Royal Mail Whiskies and the series includes: 

Mossburn Signature Cask Series Cask Bill No.1 – Island – 46% – Smoke & Spice

Displaying a seductive, potpourri reminiscent example of the signature Island coastal smoke and spice on the nose, with a touch of tannin spice on first sip, mellowing to heathery, pepper and a long with a dry, fiery kick, according to Mossburn.
