- Order number: 19025
Profile: An overview of the Aerstone Sea Cask
- Tradition & innovation: From the relatively young Ailsa Bay distillery of the long-established whiskey icons by William Grant & Sons.
- Mature age: 10 years in a barrel are now very unusual in the lower price regions for single malts.
- Fraternal gang: The Sea Cask matured on the coast near the sea. If you like it smokier, go to the 10-year-old Aerstone Land Cask, matured inland.
- Proud Lowlander: The Ailsa Bay distillery has been producing on the west coast of the once so diverse whiskey region of the Lowlands since 2007, which today only houses a few distilleries.
- Great price-enjoyment ratio: A wonderfully round, balanced single malt whiskey with 10 years of maturity at this price? Access.
Portrait: What defines the Aerstone Sea Cask.
With the Aerstone Sea Cask, William Grant & Sons offer an excellent mild malt for every day. A dram that should convince beginners and die-hard friends of soft, fine whiskeys alike. Especially since the unusually low price for a 10-year-old makes access extremely easy.
William Grant? Aren't they ...? That's right: this is the legendary family of whiskeys that own the Glenfiddich, Balvenie and Kininvie distilleries. Located in the "Whiskey Capital" Dufftown in the Speyside area, the Grants made whiskey history. Without their courage to make the Glenfiddich nationwide available as a single malt and not only to use it namelessly for blends, today's diverse whiskey landscape would not exist.
With the Aerstone, the Grants are now opening a new chapter outside of their home in the Highlands. In 2007, William Grant & Sons built Ailsa Bay Distillery on the west coast of the Lowlands on the site of the Gravan Whiskey Distillery Girvan. The ultra-modern Ailsa Bay distillery - unlike other distilleries - is very flexible in production and can produce five different raw fires. The 16 stills are modeled on those of Balvenie. And one of the distillery's goals is to produce a whiskey that will replace the Balvenie in Grant's blends. So that the Balvenie can fill more than single malt.
At Ailsa Bay, independent Lowland Single Malt is also distilled.
The first widely available bottlings are offered under the name Aerstone. There is a non-smoky variant, the "Sea Cask", and also a smoky brother called "Land Cask." As the name suggests, the Sea Cask was stored near the sea, the Land Cask further inland.
Both are absolutely worth trying.
Tasting Notes: This is how the Aerstone Sea Cask tastes
- Aroma: Mild and appetizing. First, a sweetness becomes noticeable with impressions like from the bakery: freshly baked cookies, toffee, vanilla and cinnamon. In addition honey and nutty aromas, which are complemented by fresh, delicate citrus notes.
- Flavor: very soft and harmonious. The bakery association remains, the pleasant creamy sweetness is complemented by slightly stronger notes of oak and almonds. And is there a delicate pinch of sea salt?
- Aftertaste: The sweetness declines somewhat in the end and makes room for lemons, nuts and cloves and, yes: a maritime note with a hint of a fresh sea breeze.
