The Casks

We’re pleased to offer an expanded selection that now includes three different types of Nagahama new-make casks. Each of these unique whiskies require another 2 years maturing before they are ‘single malts’ by definition, making them the perfect purchase for those looking for a long-term investment, or those wanting to mature and bottle their very own whisky from scratch.

225L Sherry Cask New

Nagahama distilled their crisp new-make spirit before specially selecting a top quality sherry cask for maturation. Sherry casks impart rich, moreish notes of raisins, winter berries and gentle spices, which will combine perfectly with the beautifully smooth Nagahama spirit to create a delicious and balanced whisky.

225L Madeira Cask

Nagahama created their excellent new-make spirit before carefully selecting a top quality Madeira cask for maturation. Madeira is a fortified wine made on the Portugese Madeira islands, so expect rich notes of dried fruits, winter berries, plum and sticky dates to combine with the smooth, crisp and lightly fruity notes of Nagahama whisky.
