Whisky production as an experiment - that's something you have to dare to do. The KASC Project uses handmade hybrid casks. Let's take a look at what that means.

See

Think of a hybrid cask as a newly assembled cask made from the staves of various other casks. Five casks of different origins are used: Portuguese oak, American oak, French oak, Hungarian oak and chestnut. This allows for unique flavours to emerge. At Kinahans, they write about it: So - if you are not ready to leave your comfort zone, the hybrid barrel whiskey releases are simply not for you.

Smell

Fruity! We have strong aromas of caramelised fruits, such as pear and apricot on the nose. Some fig and wood notes can be perceived subliminally.

Taste

It tastes like it smells. Besides the apricot, we also have the taste of ripe mango and a little more in the foreground an intense oak aroma. In the background we taste fine nuts. Pecans.

Finish

In the finish, the fruitiness disappears and is replaced by a sharp peppery spiciness. A little oak resonates.

Conclusion

A very exciting project. We are looking forward to the next releases of the KASC Project. In any case, this bottling makes us long for summer and can easily keep up with other blends in its price range.
