Bain's Cape Bottling Note

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.

Bain's Cape Mountain Whisky Reviews

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.

Dont be afraid to broaden your horizons

This is an exceptional whisky and something very different. Easy sipping, very sweet on the nose and pallet.
If you are after something a bit different I throughly recommend trying.

This is a beautiful silky smooth whisky. Vanilla on the nose and palate prominent.
For the price this is as good as you can get

I generally love the heavily peated Islay whisky’s but this is really just beautiful! Very smooth and a surprising amount of character.

I was pleasantly surprised. In North America we have a very wide choice and Bains just took up first place on my list of favourites. What a wonderful experience, soft subtle sipping whiskey. Add some friends, some biltong and a cool autumn Canadian evening and you have just passed into a state of Nirvana!
