Single Cask Nation

SINGLE CASK NATION: Founded in 2011 by Joshua Hatton and Jason Johnstone-Yellin,  Single Cask Nation is the United States’ only independent bottler following the Scottish tradition. Each cask selected is bottled at natural cask strength, free from chill filtering and artificial color, with the distillery source front and center.

Cask Numbers 3,10,14,20,30, and 31
1600 bottles produced
A vatting of six 1st fill Bourbon Casks (5 unpeated and 1 lightly peated)
Bright and peppery upon first sip but the rich, oily texture helps the experience. Richly flavored with both apples AND oranges (mandarin) and even some Jaffa Cakes (the milk chocolate note is fantastic here). Some more fruit: ripe banana, starfruit, and golden delicious apples.
Finish: Long and citrusy with the pink peppercorns returning.
