Two men walk into a bar. One of them is Tristan Stephenson. The other is Thomas Aske. The bar is Black Rock. They sit at a table, and the table is made of an 18 foot European oak tree trunk with whisky and cocktails ageing inside it. We’re not making a joke here; this is just awesome stuff from real life that exists (for real). Anyway, that’s the scene on our label of rare Carsebridge single grain, from a distillery that's been closed since 1983!
Want to know something else cool? On the back label of this whisky there's a voucher for a secret off-menu cocktail at Black Rock!
Nose: Rich wells of butterscotch and floral oak. Very easy to spend 20 minutes or more just nosing it.
Palate: Cigar box and oodles of toffee. A slight hint of chocolate gateau, too.
