Daftmill Debuts 2010 Cask Strength Single Malt

Daftmill 2010 Cask Strength

Lowland Scotch distillery Daftmill has unveiled its 2010 Cask Strength Single Malt, bottled at 58.7% ABV

Lowland whisky maker Daftmill has unveiled its 2010 Cask Strength single malt. The new limited edition release is the first of its kind from the distillery to be released in the US.

Daftmill 2010 Cask Strength was produced using 15 first-fill ex-bourbon casks that yielded 2,400 bottles. The whisky offers aromas of vanilla and spiced custard, which evolve into notes of honeyed beeswax, sweet lemon candy, apricot jam, and hints of fresh cake dough. The palate features spicy oak balanced with fruit, which give way to caramelized brown sugar, toffee and hints of mashed banana and marzipan. The finish delivers wood spice with waves of warming cinnamon and dried ginger.

Located in Fife on the East coast of Scotland, just north of Edinburgh, Daftmill produces just 100 casks per year from 100 percent single estate barley according to a seasonal schedule – two months in the summer and two months in winter. Hotaling & Co are making the release available in the U.S. 

“Daftmill is renowned for its dedication to authenticity and craft as a true Scottish farm-to-bottle single malt,” says Dan Leese, Hotaling & Co CEO. “We pride ourselves on bringing exceptional spirits from around the world to American consumers, and this new cask strength expression from Daftmill will be sure to appeal to every whisky collector.”

Bottled at 58.7% ABV, the Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky features an SRP of $324.99 per 700ml bottle.
