Distilleries sometimes cut their whiskies with water before bottling. This makes the whisky taste the way they think is best. And that's OK in principle; adding water can be an important part of enjoying whisky.
Cask strength whisky can have a high percentage of alcohol. Adding a little water removes any alcohol prickle and allows the whisky to open up. As the whisky opens and relaxes, it unlocks more flavour molecules; which means you’ll be able to enjoy more aromas and pick out new tasting notes. We want to put you in control of that process with The Final Cut, which gives you everything you need to create your perfect dram - cut to your taste.
