Caskstrength is First Blog to Launch Own Whisky
Caskstrength.net is First Blog to Launch Own Whisky
28 June 2011

To celebrate its 3rd birthday, the award-winning whisky blog Caskstrength.net has released a very special limited edition, single malt whisky from the Isle of Arran Distillery. This is the first time a blog has launched its own whisky, and it is made all the more exclusive as the Scotch is from a single cask that yielded just 92 bottles, which are set to sell out very quickly.

Caskstrength.net (http://caskstrength.blogspot.com/) was founded in early 2008 by two former rival A&R men working at Warner Bros and Island Records respectively. They created their blog to share their love of whisky with friends, but since then it has grown beyond all expectation, and now they regularly travel around the world to write about new whiskies and distilleries for publications including Whisky Magazine, The Chap, Imbibe and Aston Martin Magazine, as well as conducting high profile tastings and running the very popular whisky competition “Best in Glass” which celebrates the year’s best new releases.

Their first official whisky “Caskstrength and Carry On” was drawn from a single first fill bourbon cask (number 1554) which was filled in 1998 and bottle in May 2011. There are just 92 bottles from the cask, all of which were bottled undiluted at 49.9%abv. The whisky is retailing for £48.95, and it is exclusively available from online retailer Master of Malt here: http://www.masterofmalt.com/whiskies/cask-strength-and-carry-on-whisky/
