Remember, remember the Fifth of November fondly this year with these cracking tipples…

Bonfire Night, or as those who own cats and dogs presumably call it, National Scare the Crap out of My Pet(s) Day, has come around again. This is great news because Bonfire Night is brilliant. Countless fireworks lighting up the sky. Heaps of amazing autumnal food. Plus there are the actual bonfires, carrying that fantastic scent and welcome heat through the crisp night air.

For some people, it’s all about the festival atmosphere at parties and displays. For others, it’s all about wrapping up warm and snug at home, enjoying the spectacle from afar. Ultimately, we’re all going to take advantage of another perfectly good excuse to indulge in some spectacular seasonal spirits. Right?

For those nodding enthusiastically in agreement, we’ve decided to round up some of the best Bonfire Night boozes and fireside beverages, each with an appropriately smouldering serve. Enjoy!

Bear with us while we compose ourselves – the latest Master of Malt exclusive bottling is here and it’s so good it’s got us in a right fluster. Behold: Redbreast 16 Year Old 2001 Single Cask!

Lingo that we like here are MoM Towers: whisky. Irish whiskey. Single pot still. Single cask. Cask strength. It’s like the most wonderful game of word association.

So imagine the joy – nay, near-frenzy – when the fruit of our intrepid spirits buyers’ latest adventure found its way into the office. Redbreast 16 Year Old 2001 Single Cask is a delectably divine single pot still showcase – and it is also a Master of Malt exclusive, which sent the excitement levels well and truly through the roof!

Gather round dear friends of the whisky-world – for I bring delightful news… We’ve got nine brand new Master of Malt Single Cask Series bottlings!

Independent bottlings are such an essential and brilliant aspect of this beautiful industry of ours, so much so that sometimes we can’t help ourselves and we have to do a few of our own! We’ve taken time out of our busy Christmas* schedule (we’re past Halloween, we can talk about it – that’s the rule) to bring you a whopping nine new whiskies for our Single Cask Series.

These newest releases include an exquisite, 28 year old example from Miltonduff, a delightfully youthful pair of Rock Towns (as they are only 1 year matured, these technically aren’t whiskies) and a sumptuous offerings from Cragganmore!

All of these fine examples, and more, can be viewed below – complete with tasting notes and links to the appropriate beverages!

They say good things come in threes and today’s dose of deliciousness is a trio of Malt Single Cask Series expressions – incredible single cask Scotch whisky bottlings from some of Scotland’s most exciting distilleries. And yes, that includes a Port Ellen!

We love independently-bottled spirits. Someone – in this case, our ace buying team – has gone out of their way to pick out and purchase each cask because it’s got a real point of difference. Want to experience a whole different aspect of a distillery’s character? Check out independently bottled single casks. They act as a snapshot in time – quirks and eccentricities blended out in a brand’s usual vatting and marrying processes shine through. Each is unique – and in the case of these three, our latest Master of Malt Single Cask Series releases, downright delicious.

English Whisky Company

Long time readers of the Master of Malt Blog will know that we visited the home of the English Whisky Company in Norfolk all the way back in 2009 – over 6 years ago! Ben had a look around the awesome St. George’s Distillery, saw a dog and definitely didn’t get told off by a colleague for having to be physically dragged away from their cask storage containers.

So it may be gorgeous,
So it may not be famous,
Armagnac, twenty-one years old.

There’s a new release in the Master of Malt Single Cask Series charts, and the artist isn’t even Scottish! In fact, it’s not even whisky. (We do have some more Single Cask whiskies on the way shortly though… and not necessarily all from Scotland…) Extending the range into different spirit types entirely, we’re delighted to present our very first independent bottling of Armagnac!

Master Of Malt Single Casks Glass Closures

So, here’s the thing. We fucked up. We got the pricing on our recently released Bruichladdich single casks wrong. To be precise, we accidentally used the figure per litre of pure alcohol instead of the figure per litre of finished liquid in our calculations. The prices of our bottlings are always based on the cost of the liquid, and in this case the costs we used were incorrect. This blog post, for the avoidance of doubt, was written on the naughty step. We took ourselves there.

Master Of Malt Single Casks Glass Closures

You may have seen that we recently launched a couple of single casks that featured our shiny new innovative glass closures, which you can read all about here. We also invited you to give your feedback and one query that arose was whether we were going to sell the closures separately, after all, they’ll fit any of the bottles in our Single Cask Series! We thought this was such a good idea that we should do it immediately. So we did.
