Sorry about this...

Aerstone 10yo Land Cask Bottling Note

Here we have the counterpart to William Grant's Aerstone Sea Cask, it's Land Cask! As you can probably deduce, if Sea Cask was matured in warehouses on the coast, this variant is aged in warehouses located much further inland. Another point of difference is that Land Cask is a smoky single malt thanks to the use of Highland peat, making for a sweet and smoky dram.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Earthy peat smoke and vanilla pod, with a briney note, black pepper, smoked meats and burnt rubber, with just a touch of fresh fruity sweetness.

Palate: Balanced sweet and smoky notes, with aniseed, burnt brown sugar, charred oak and salted honeycomb. Then there's olive brine, barbecued citrus fruit and smoked meats.

Finish: Sweet and smoky battle it out on the finish, with vanilla fudge and peat smoke alongside dry, spicy oak.

Aerstone 10 Year Old Land Cask Reviews

Like a Laphroaig, but with the volume turned down

Picked it up at the store for about $35 American. Only real point of comparison I have is a Laphroaig 10 and a Talisker Storm. It definitely leans more towards the Laphroaig, but the flavors are a bit weaker, less bold. That's bad, in my opinion, when it comes to the smokiness, but good when it comes to the briney/seawatery flavors. For the price, I'm happy with my purchase!

Decent price/quaility

Not that bad for the price. Reminds me of Caol Ila 12. You cannot expect much from a 10 yo bottled at 40% ABV.

Find something better

Yuk, tastes like old cough syrup from the 80s

Smoked Dirt

Tastes exactly like smoked peat. Sea Cask is much better in my opinion.

Not my first choice, but will serve as a weekday, after work drink.

I prefer the subtleness of the Sea Cask. Here, the smoke seems forced and rough. However, for the price (around $30 American) I've had harsher at this price point.

Avoid this

Disappointment. Shallow and watery. No specific nose or taste notes, just some muddy ashtray wash without proper finish.

Strange experience

Better do not smell it. Suprisingly - it drinkable. I need time, to understand what happened ...

Great value peaty malt..recommended

Fabulously smoky malt, and for money its great value. I don't understand some of the snobbish comments on i think peoples palates differ and the negative comments I would surmise they'd been eating reindeer droppings tasting

Nice smoky for the money

A good one.

A sufficently good weekday tipple

Strikes as an island malt 'Second Label' - sort of a second tier Talisker. Similar characters. Smokey, slightly tarry, briney characters.

Not terrible, just not great. Mid week drinking as a filler - keep the better stuff for the weekend when you can enjoy & not worry about work tomorrow
