Bains 75cl Bottling Note
South African single grain whisky! How often do you see that? "Not often" is the answer, and the question was rhetorical so... Anyway, released in 2009, this is South Africa's first ever single grain whisky, coming from the The James Sedgwick Distillery in Wellington. Bain's Cape Mountain whisky is produced in column stills, matured in first fill bourbon casks for five years and named after the chap who built the first roads in Wellington.
A superb whisky ... And this from a member of the Scotch Malt Whisky Society!
This is a surprise. A delightfully smooth whiskey and I understand it has won a number of awards. I am not usually influenced by such awards but this one is definitely deserved. A lovely whiskey and one that even a Malt devotee should try ... And then keep in his whiskey cabinet!
