Blackadder does not believe in chill-filtering or in colouring whisky. Quite simply, Blackadder RAW CASK is every bit a Blackadder whisky but even more so. Each and every bottle of Blackadder RAW CASK contains its own share of the CASK SEDIMENT, as well as NATURAL OILS AND FATS that might otherwise be left behind when filling a cask strength whisky straight from cask. We use a UNIQUE PROCESS when bottling to ensure the MAXIMUM POSSIBLE FLAVOUR. Blackadder RAW CASK is therefore single malt or grain whisky as it always used to be when it was often sold direct from barrels kept behind the bar. As Blackadder RAW CASK is a high-strength cask whisky we recommend "cutting" your spirit with water according to taste. The addition of water to a natural unfiltered whisky helps to unlock and release the esters, or flavours, from the fats. This is especially so with a cask-strength whisky and will enable you to enjoy the fullest possible range of complex flavours in your glass of Blackadder RAW CASK.
