WHISKY TASTING NOTES
The musical tasting notes for this cask:
Nose: A heady riff of Frosties cereal followed by spicy licks of cinnamon and mellow white wine kick things off on the nose of this exceptional dram.
Palate: A harmonious fusion of malty, creamy and nutty hints followed by a vibrant stone fruits.
Finish: Just like a great song, this dram finishes on a crescendo which is accompanied by hints of salted macadamia nuts.
TSC x AHF Collaboration
Whisky and music have been enjoyed together for many years by people all around the world, including us here at TSC, so this was a very exciting collaboration.
To close this year The Single Cask has the pleasure to bring you a very special edition of our whisky. A whisky selected with and for the Canadian singer, Alex Henry Foster band. Alex Henry Foster, the band and the team are all big lovers of both American whiskey and Scotch. So when they approached us for a collaboration on this very special edition, we just could not pass up the opportunity. After long talks and tasting various samples of a wide array of TSC casks at different maturation points, various distilleries and finishes, we had found the cask that met the expectations and preferences of AHF. We dispatched the sample and waited for the feedback with a sense of excitement as we felt that it represented the essence of whom AHF are as well as their personal flavour profiles. When we got the call that it was perfect, we were over the moon and proud to have this very special edition whisky carry not only our branding, but also the AHF humming bird. Music in our glass and harmony on the palate, from spoken words to a liquid song of love, this is a project of passion that we are proud to share with you.
For us, one of the best aspects of a good single malt whisky is its ability to bring people together. So when we created our bottles we wanted to design something that felt like a decanter - meant to be passed around a group of friends, new and old, as they enjoy sharing a dram together.
Our bottles have a good weight to them, making them feel substantial and giving them the presence a good whisky deserves. We've offset the label, so that the whisky is centre stage; it shows the natural colour of the liquid clearly and proudly.
The label clearly and transparently shows you all the key information, including: the nature of the liquid (for example, single malt scotch) where it was distilled; how old it is; and how strong it is. All our liquids are natural colour and non chill filtered.
Packaging: All our bottles are shipped in a specialist anti-shock 'air tubes'. These create a sleeve of air around the bottle to keep it safe and protected while in the post. The air tubes are then places in discreet, plain, cardboard outer boxes.
