70cl * 57.7% ABV * Scotland
A very special, very limited inaugural release of the 'Cask Collaboration Series'. Mossburn Foursquare started life as a classic expression of Speyside Malt Whisky, first aged for more than 12 years in ex-bourbon casks before re-aging in American oak casks that previously contained mature Foursquare Barbados rums.
A winning combination of "Scottish spirit. Caribbean casks." it is released at cask strength - 57.7% abv. Full of elegant rum aromas that intertwine with evident malty cereal notes and a subtle vanilla/banana undertone. On the palate it has full-bodied maltiness with complexity in the form of toffee, vanilla, apples and balanced with a beguiling rum and raisin note. The finish is well balanced with a long finish of raisins, vanilla and complex sweet spice.
The annual Mossburn cask collaboration series highlights the skills of master blenders; blending and finishing different Scotches in special casks using barrels sourced from distinctive world-renowned distilleries, handpicked by Mossburn's most experienced whisky-makers.
