Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship Aerstone 10 Year Old Land Cask to you in United States at the moment. We're working on a solution.

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

Trying too hard.

Both the nose and the palate remind me of a saying I once heard in a movie:
"It's like a sumo wrestler took a dump on a burning tire!"
'Nuff said.

Very impressive for the price

On a cold winter's night you might find yourself reaching for a peaty Islay malt like Laphroaig or Lagavulin. There's no pretending that this malt comes close to those in terms of depth of balance of flavour.

But for the price I have not encountered a smoother and more satisfying smoky malt.

Surprisingly great whisky

I love Islay whiskey. This one was pretty surprising for me, that I found typical taste and aroma like on Lagavulin, Ardbeg or Laphroaig. But for 1/3 of its price. Well done. Next thing I must try Sea Cask :).

Very good!

I am not sure why the first review here is so dismissive about this whisky. Maybe he or she does not like peated whisky or expected the quality of Macallan or Lagavullin for the price.
I personally can only recommend this one for all that people
who are looking for a medium peated whisky which does not ruin their bank account

Awful stuff

Awful stuff. Acrid burnt rubber and pungent sulphur. And not in a "man I love Laphroaig" kind of way.

Great staff

This is delicious and a new favorite
Lots of smoke, peat , burned rubber
Reach and oily if you’re a peat head this dram is a must , with unbelievable price for a 10 years peated single malt ... here in Oz
can’t find any better for example even double black is more expensive
Great work grants family, this is a great whisky , I’m happy to have your bottle if you are disappointed

Sweet, peaty, strong character and warming

Quite nice! It is strong, but perfect for those who like a strong peat kick. For the price I think it's hard to find something that quite matches it. Over here in aus, most whiskies of decent quality start around 80, this one sits at 60 but with an age statement

Beautiful stuff!

Loving it , it’s taste slightly odd at the start , almost artificial smoke flavor, as the bottle go down , it’s open beautifuly , sweet Peat , creamy ,very smoky, dried fruit , ash pretty long finish , remind me Ardmore traditional cask, big pack of flavour .if you are a peat peak /sow

Hums of a failed experiment

Nowadays we're spoilt for choice when it comes to Scotch offerings, people can be critical within the context of things not being as good as other 'integrity' expressions but rarely do you find a release that is genuinely bad.
This Land Cask is genuinely bad. It hums of a failed experiment, distillery/producer getting rid of stock not suitable to release under their real branding.

Save yourself the trouble.
