The Ultis Cask Strength Tasting at Strathisla
Great whiskies have hearts of oak. Character-building, flavour-creating wooden casks racked silently in the shadows and stillness of a bonded warehouse situated at Mulben, never open to the public. Each one carefully nurturing new spirit, and for as long as it takes. You really must experience the atmosphere, so for the first hour of this event Brand Ambassador Caris Simpson will accompany you out from Strathisla to Mulben, where Ross and Duncan, from our North Operations team, will reveal fascinating insights about cask selection and the long maturation process.
On returning to our Visitor Centre Boardroom, you’ll explore the results of this highly-skilled craft. Chivas Regal blending expert Kevin Balmforth will guide you through tastings of five aged editions from the Distillery Reserve Collection. (Allt-a-Bhaine 15yo, Braeval 18yo, Tormore 20yo, Longmorn 24yo and Strathisla 25yo). Then, moving on to the Chivas Cellar of Warehouse No.3, we’ll offer you a farewell dram drawn straight from the cask, together with a 50cl Strathisla 25yo bottle to take with you.
