Aerstone 10 year old Land Cask, is a single malt whisky by William Grant and it contains Highland malt, even though being produced at Lowland’s Ailsa Bay distillery. While this exquisite whisky didn’t undergo maturation at sea, it absorbed the essence of the maritime environment through its aging process in coastal warehouses on the scenic Ayrshire coast in Scotland.
The brand also has Sea Cask edition in its portfolio. Which is easier to comprehend. Land Cask series were aged in inland warehouses and were distilled using Highland peated malt.
This one is quite easy to drink. Almost a bang for buck whisky. I have to say almost, because five years ago this wouldn’t be near bang for buck. But with today’s whisky prices it is. I got this as a gift but I know that the price was affordable, somewhere below 40 euros.
For a single malt in this day and age, that’s a bargain. Especially when you enjoy the taste. Malt source is unknown but Ardmore comes to mind first, even though it’s not the only peated Highlander malt whisky available.
