Bain's Cape

First 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 matured in first fill bourbon casks for an initial three years before spending a further two years in fresh first fill bourbon casks! It's named after the chap who built the first roads in Wellington.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Grapefruit peels, custard creams and icing sugar. Soon followed by nutmeg and vanilla sugar. Lightness throughout.

Palate Soft and well-rounded with continued vanilla cream. Fresh pear, banana and hints of cardamom and oak.

Finish The sweet citrus peels return, along with a little bit of meadowsweet.

Reviews for Bain's Cape Mountain Whisky
Super Smooth
The best grain whisky I have ever tasted and it's so reasonably priced. I'm a fairly new convert to a dram which I'm happy to return to. Just goes to prove that it doesn't have to be Scottish to be good.

The best single grain out there!
This is truly a magnificent single grain. Its a 100% corn whiskey with no real similarities to bourbon. This way way way above its price. Its a perfect Whiskey for sipping neat - but be careful an open bottle is an empty bottle. Very easy drinking.

Well-priced, surprising!
This is an interesting one. Sweet biscuits, tropical fruit (verging on the artificial, but in a nice, balanced way - think Pineapple Cubes and Pear Drops) and a deeper, lingering finish. It won't please lovers of traditional or ascetic Scots whiskies or American bourbons, it's quite Irish in its palate and edges towards the liqueur side of things, but there's a lot to like here if approached with an open mind.

Probably the best grain that I have ever sampled - liked it so much that I ordered another couple of bottles.

Very smooth pairs well with my favorite cigar
I found it utterly enjoyable along with my favorite Olivia cigar unfortunately I can't find it in Georgia..(Take hope a friend is visiting a state that has Bains and has promised to get me some)..

Easy drinking
Beautiful whisky agree with the vanilla finish. But im leaving a review as i have a bottle brought over from S.A from time to time and it is actually 43%!!

Tastes like a much older single malt, with a rich dark chocolatey flavour.

Easy Going
Simple and pleasant, but minimal nose and swift finish. Sweet and uncomplicated. Great for those at the beginning of their whisky journey. 100% corn. Perfect for a hot day.

Summer evening
Really light, sweet and smooth. Icing sugar and vanilla stand out to me. Perhaps really indulgent ice cream. It’s not very complex, but it is a decent one for a summer evening and that’s not taking anything away from it.
