My Handcrafted Opinions on Whiskies, Distilleries and Other Related Stuff

Whisky Castle Edition Kaser

There is a little story behind my acquisition of this very interesting bottle of single malt from a small Swiss distillery. I first learned of it in the book 101 World Whiskies to Try Before You Die. Unavailable in USA I found their website and attempted to order a bottle (or sample) online. As they only delivered in Europe I tried to get a bottle delivered to my father in the UK. However website was in German, no credit card details were requested or taken, no confirmation or follow up email was ever received (I think it went straight to Junk Mail) and so I put it out of my mind, assuming failure, and vowed to come up with another plan. That was August 2013. In January 2014 my father travelled to USA to visit me and in his bag was a bottle of Whisky Castle Edition Kaser. They had shipped it to UK and included an invoice with shipment. As I was not expecting the shipment and had not seen the invoice I had basically ignored their fine whisky (and their invoice) for over 4 months! I felt bad and can assure all readers that I have since dispatched payment along with an apology. The nose is quite rich and rather good with dark fruits, and a light yeasty, even cheesy note (Kaser = cheese). The taste is blast of spice and alcohol, citrus peel and cayenne pepper. Finish is spicy, malty and a touch of tobacco. Plenty going on and what it lacks in complexity and subtlety it makes up in overall flavor and overall punch!  I spent a little time trying to come up with a line about Swiss whisky, like Swiss cheese, being full of holes.... but it isn't.
