Usquaebach An Ard Ri Cask Strength Blended Malt Scotch Whisky

Usquaebach An Ard Ri Cask Strength Blended Malt Scotch Whisky


Usquaebach Cask Strength is an expertly crafted blend of over 20 single malt whisky casks from the Highlands. Produced in extremely limited quantities.


Usquaebach, translating to “Water of Life” in Scottish Gaelic and the root of the term “whisky,” originates from a brand founded in 1877 and is currently meticulously crafted by a distinguished family-owned whisky blending house.

Firmly committed to tradition, quality, and craftsmanship, Usquaebach’s esteemed Master Blender selects the finest single malts and aged grain whiskies from reputable distilleries in the Scottish Highlands. Using personally selected single malt casks, the Master Blender curates four distinct scotch expressions, each offering a balanced complexity of flavors.

One of their exceptional offerings, Usquaebach ‘An Ard Ri’ (meaning “The High King” in Gaelic) Cask Strength, is an artful blend of over 20 single malt whisky casks sourced from the Highlands. Under the guidance of the Master Blender, each cask is meticulously nurtured until maturation is perfected. This Cask Strength expression is created from a blend of various aged malts, including those up to 21 years old, and culminates in finishing within sherry casks.

Produced in limited quantities, its aroma unveils raw cacao, toasted almonds, freshly baked pastries, and stewed cherries, leading to a palate of dark fudge, worn leather, and sherried wood. The finish is lavish, highlighted by dark chocolate and hazelnut praline notes. It’s recommended to savor this whisky neat in a proper nosing glass, with a touch of purified water for the optimal experience. Presented in a distinctive “trophy” case, it boasts an ABV of 57.1% and a deep copper color.
