Cask Strength Whisky
Cask strength whisky, also known as barrel proof, is a potent expression of the spirit that is bottled directly from the cask without dilution. Its history dates back to traditional whisky production methods, where the spirit was drawn straight from the barrel for consumption. Cask strength whiskies offer aficionados a raw and intense tasting experience, showcasing the full impact of the ageing process. With alcohol content often exceeding the standard bottling strength, usually over 50% abv, cask strength releases allow connoisseurs to appreciate the nuances of the whisky in its most undiluted and powerful form.
