Made by the owners of Torabhaig distillery on the Isle of Skye, Caisteal Chamuis is a heavily peated blended malt scotch whisky that offers complex layers of smokiness.
Initially aged in refill and first-fill American oak hogshead casks before an ageing period in a combination of new American oak 250-litre barrels with fresh oloroso sherry wine-seasoned European oak heads, and refill hogsheads. After blending, the final finishing period is in smaller 200-litre first fill ex-bourbon barrels.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 22/12/2022
Clear, pale golden amber.
Smoking embers, earthy peat, seaweed, soy sauce, lemon and vanilla.
Chewy smoke and generous maltiness with sweet vanilla, butterscotch, a touch of tar and lemon zesty oak.
Long and smoky. Pleasing toasty oak dominates the smoke towards the end.
A generous alcohol strength and heavy peating should help make this an assertive whisky, but thanks to clever ageing Caisteal Chamuis is a relatively gentle and sweet giant.
