Cask Noir: Launch of Batch #2

Launch of the 2nd batch of Cask Noir

We are thrilled to announce the launch of our 2nd batch of Cask Noir single cask releases. 

Cask Noir are exquisitely curated single cask whiskies from Scotland’s finest distilleries. Cask Noir whiskies start their life in some of Scotland’s finest studios (aka 'distilleries') and each release takes inspiration from classic movies and novels from a bygone era. The 1st batch gave tasters a  many thrilling, adventurous, romantic and mysterious journeys around the exotic flavours from these incredible casks. 

The new series of Cask Noir has introduced some equally interesting characters! Some of them were created in exciting ‘studios’ like Bunnahabhain, Dalrymple, Benrinnes, and Caol Ila. Others hail from beautiful locations like the Orkney Islands and the Kintyre peninsula. Each of these productions bring together a cast of characters that were carefully chosen by the dedicated ‘production team’ at Brave New Spirits. The focus is on flavour and finding that perfect cask that showcases the unique characteristics of a particular spirit.

The full list of ‘acts’ of the 2nd batch of Cask Noir production: 

“Mutiny On The Wyre Majestic” (Bunnahabhain Moine 10yo, bourbon barrel)

“Mysteries Of The Wee Toon” (Campbeltown Blended Malt 6yo, bourbon barrel)

“Take It To The Brig” (Cameronbridge 12yo, Pedro Ximenez hogshead)

“Alisa & The Secret Torcy Twin” (Dalrymple 11yo, sherry butt)

“Campfire Songs” (Caol Ila 6yo, Lafite wine barrel)

The single cask releases in this new batch display rich and complex flavour profiles, dominated by both bourbon and sherry casks. The ages of the casks vary between 6 to 22 years old. This offers a great opportunity to explore a wide range of flavour profiles from across the Scottish whisky scene. 

We can't wait for you to take part in this series! Enjoy discovering new characters in this ever-so-adventurous series of Cask Noir.
