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.

Reviews for Aerstone 10 Year Old Land Cask
Would recommend this to anyone who enjoys whisky
This whisky has an aroma that fills a room as soon as you remove the cork. Very pleasant mix of fruits giving it a good sweetness along side a strong peat and smokiness which lingers on your palate in a very pleasant manner.

A nice dram at the right price
If you can pick this up for £20.00 a bottle, which I have done on a couple of occasions, it's a great one to have in your collection. I think the nose is great with good amounts of smoke and peat. Sure, there is little complexity on the palate and the finish is all too brief, but whisky at this price is never going to rival the more expensive offerings. For me, it's one that you can open and quaff without remorse. If you have £25.00 knocking around, Laphroaig Select is, for me, a much better option, but at the right price I will happily champion this easy-drinking whisky until the Highland cattle come home.

Not worth your time.
Great potential - all the flavours of a peaty, smoky, salty oceanside whisky are here - but it's a bit much, tbh. Not much care given to balance, depth or subtlety and the end result is harsh, one-dimensional and distinctly medicinal. Supermarkets are selling this stuff for £30 a bottle, which is the same price range as Laphroig and Ardbeg, and they do this sort of thing a lot better.

Not overly complex but a very nice dram.
Having been lead up the garden path by some non Islay malts that promise peat smoke I wasn't expecting too much. However, This malt offers a significant smoky kick without being too 'medicinal' in flavour. It's sweet, not overly complex, but a very nice dram indeed, with the peaty twang adding balance. Far superior to the 'Sea Cask' IMO. I'd like to see a nearer to cask strength version offered- maybe NAS to keep the price within reason.

A guid wee drap wi more than a hint o’ the peat. A guid accompaniment to a Burns night!
Nice. Not overwhelming in the smoke department - I have gone away from Laphroig and Ardbeg a little, but this seems a mellow medium between a nice Speyside and the Islay malts. $69 in Gosford so pretty reasonable.. One my son can come and put a considerable dent in without upsetting his Dad! Particularly if I help!

Good for price but lacks depth.
If you just want a cheaper easy drinking smooth whiskey (with a bit of peat*) its does that job well, but it lacks the body and comfort factor you get with a good whiskey.
*This is a peaty whiskey so if you don't like that flavour it is not for you. If you like your whiskey peaty, for me this one is missing a bit of punch and the peaty taste doesn't linger. I miss the complexity of a finish you get with the pricer whiskeys.

Too Smokey Burnt Rubber Taste
I agree with other people who are not whiskey drinkers with a palate I found this to be to totally unpleasant to drink like a medical smell not nice to smell or pleasant to drink for some reason distillers think that if they make a whiskey really smokey it will make it smell and taste better it doesn’t it makes it in drinkable I got this bought for my birthday and I now feel embarrassed that I have to tell my friends it’s awful and undrinkable sorry not for me and anybody who thinks this is nice to drink wants there heads examined

Plenty of phenolic smoke for islay lovers
If like me you like your whisky heavy on the smoke, like lagavulin 16 or big pete then you'll love this at £20 a bottle.
Nothing comes close at this price, just enough smoke and phenol to satisfy my taste and the smoothness of a 10yr old with no "off" flavour of tails from the still like say the nas bunnahabhain.
10/10 a bargain.

Really nice give it a go.
A really nice whisky, I usually go for Speyside single malts but was given a bottle of Aerstone Land Cask as an inexpensive surprise gift from my wife. Smoky with an interesting nose and wonderful finish, it is as lovely as she is.

Be warned, barely dirnkable - coming from an unpretentious drinker
I normally do not review whisky; leave it to those with finer palates, but I have to review this and warn people. When I read other reviews saying it tasted like burned rubber I doubted that and could not even imagine it tasting like burnt rubber. Oh how wrong I was.

I don't know if this was intentional but the smoky taste is not good, its so artificial I am surprised it is allowed or even safe to be produced - and this coming from someone who usually eats/drinks anything, really.

Still left with 3/4 of the bottle and I don't know if I'll be able to go through it because of this overwhelming taste of burnt tires. Like someone else suggested, will most likely blend it with another whisky.
