Cadenhead’s London “Small Batch 21st Release” – Scotch Whisky News

We’re Having Another Birthday!

Yes folks, we at Cadenhead’s like to mark social days or events, so this is our big one for the year!

SMALL BATCH 21st RELEASE IS NOW AVAILABLE

Before we go into the release list it’s worth going over a few drams we will explain about the small batch for our new customers! Cadenhead’s small batch is a by-monthly release that sits alongside the Authentic single cask selection.

Small batch can be from a single cask or barrel or several cask married together for example Knockdhu 11 is made from 3 casks Macduff 11 is 1 cask!

Why do they do this? Simple really because it’s all about the taste profile. Some of most legendary whiskies have come out under the small batch range, this season will see a whole new range of legendary whiskies.

I will also list a few of the archive whiskies from the range we are releasing on the web shop!

Lets talk about age and brand!

What is it that makes you buy a whisky, is it the age or distillery or both?

We see a huge spike in demand for the usual suspects so lets dig a little deeper into the drams you miss out on! From this seasons release I am going to say Macduff 11 & Knockdhu 11 alongside the Tomintoul 11! Yes they are young but they taste so much older!

From other releases we have the following small batch whiskies…

LINKWOOD 1992 24 Years Old 50.9% -70CL- HOGSHEAD CASKS

AULTMORE 20 YEARS OLD 1997 51.8% – 70CL – HOGSHEAD CASKS

GLEN SPEY 22 YEARS OLD 57.9% HOGSHEAD CASKS

While some of you know of the distilleries some do not! So its normal to feel unsure about trying them out!

In our tasting room you will usually find a dram or 3 you have never tied before so with that in mind check out the store in the coming few Saturdays we will have open house events upstairs in-between the Tasting experience events where we will try out the lesser known and younger drams!

Mind you our younger drams are older then most other malts on the general market!

The LONDON TASTING PANEL = (LTP)

Has been taking place over several days and nights for the new range!

The general consensus is possibly the best response to a release I have seen since the early 2000’s every dram had fans every taste made them smile especially with the younger vintages!

To truly get a proper perspective the tastes can and will be blind so they have no idea what the distillery is age or ABV so as to give a truly honest tasting note.
