IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS

Established in 1992, Mossburn is a bottler of a range of whiskies, most of them sourced from other distilleries around Scotland. (It also operates Torabhaig, which is tiptoeing into its own distillates as we speak.)

While Mossburn bottles a variety of single vintage whiskies from other distilleries (much like any independent bottler), what you’re more likely to find on shelves and bar lists are the two whiskies from its Signature Casks Series, both of which are blended malts — made from multiple single malts, but no grain whiskies. The two whiskies are bottled with labels that bear an intense amount of information — everything but the age of the spirits and where they’re actually distilled — but I have to admit none of it makes a ton of sense. As such, I’ve broken down the details that are available on the two complex “Mossburn Cask Bills” in narrative form, both of which are outlined below.

Mossburn Cask Bill #2 is a blend of Speyside single malts, no grain whisky. First maturation in 200-liter ex-bourbon oak, second maturation in 500-liter oloroso sherry butts with heavily-charred virgin oak cask heads. The nose is pretty and emblematic of Speyside, exuding a mix of cereal notes, toasty oak, and a hint of oxidized wine. Gentle and mild, the sherry influence is minimal but present on both nose and tongue, sweetened up with some notes of raisins and stone fruits, though nothing is over the top. The finish is where we find this malt at its sweetest, with notes of nougat, golden raisins, and a pinch of Christmas spice lingering on the fade-out. While a bit innocuous, it’s a fine example of Speyside, a greatest hits collection of the area’s flavor profile.
