Bladnoch Ember Casks

Bladnoch Ember Casks is as close as you’ll ever come to drinking a campfire-toasted whisky marshmallow. And not only is it Bladnoch’s first-ever triple-cask whisky, it’s also the next instalment of Dr Nick Savage’s world exclusive Bladnoch Whisky Club series.

With past Whisky Club Bladnoch releases being sought after worldwide, it was up to Master Distiller Dr Nick Savage to create something not only the Club, but the world had never seen from the distillery. Working his way through the extensive Bladnoch cask list, he discovered a triple-cask combination that elevates Bladnoch’s flavour profile into a whole new experience.

This is whisky genius.

Starting with 60% American oak ex-Bourbon casks, he then brought in 20% new American oak casks, and for the first time ever 20% peated Oloroso Sherry Spanish oak quarter casks. With moreish notes of toasted marshmallows, chocolate mousse and the long-lasting campfire embers from which it takes its name, Bladnoch Ember Casks is bottled exclusively for the Club at Dr Nick’s choice cut of 53.5% ABV, non-chill filtered, and natural colour.

“You've got the classic nature of the ex-Bourbon giving that toffee, citrus, and tropical notes that you get out of American oak,” says Dr Nick. “But you've got it with a lot more intensity with the new oak. The Spanish oak with the Oloroso quarter casks starts to add that rich mouthfeel, the dried fruits and rich apricots start to come through alongside the caramelisation and the nuttiness of the roasted almonds… It's a hell of a dram. I think everyone is very proud of it and I think Ember Casks really does just exemplify what you're going to get.”

It's the third time in Club history that we’ve featured Bladnoch as our Whisky of the Month. The previous two have gained massive followings and these days fetch up to $360 each at auction. So, at $120 Bladnoch Ember Casks is a must-have for your whisky collection.

Bladnoch's History

For Bladnoch we’re headed deep into the south of the Scottish Lowland – a Scotch whisky region we don’t often visit – and a distillery that sits even further south than the Isle of Arran and Campbeltown.
