Cask 88 specialises in rare and antique whisky. What started as a small, family-owned business has become a globally recognised brand for high-end whisky, with services including cask procurement, cask storage, bespoke bottle design and sourcing antique releases.
We’ve teamed up with Cask 88 to offer you the chance to win a bottle of the final whisky in its Scottish Folklore Series – The Boobrie: The Ravenous Diver worth £550.
The Cask 88 Scottish Folklore Series consists of six unique, single cask expressions; each expression dictates the myth or legend it embodies, to bond the stories of Scotland’s unique history with the very finest expressions of its spirit.
To complete the Scottish Folklore Series, Cask 88 headed to the remote Kintyre Peninsula to find a cask of unpeated, triple distilled whisky made at Springbank distillery.
The whisky has spent its 21 years in an ex-bourbon hogshead. The triple distillation renders the whisky lighter and softer than its double distilled cousin, and the absence of peat allows the subtler flavours to sing more clearly.
This whisky is something of an ambush predator in itself, in that it greets you with a quick rush of fruity and floral sweetness which then eases back to become a gentler, more nutty fragrance. This is surely a whisky for those calm, sunny days that turn the West Coast of Scotland into a paradise.
Springbank distillery is a darling in the whisky world - they stubbornly make their whisky the old-fashioned way and will not be hurried. Every so often, to shake things up, they produce an entirely unpeated spirit which they distil a third time for extra smoothness. It’s a cask of this triple distilled malt whisky, born in the year 2000, that Cask 88 presents as the 6th in the Scottish Folklore Series.
The question is: Which expression is The Boobrie in Cask 88's Scottish Folklore Series?
