Black Bottle Alchemy Series #5, Set sail to the Caribbean. Discover rum-cask-finished malts and gorgeous aged grains at the heart of our latest Alchemy experiment. Expect notes of pineapple, coconut and vanilla with a signature Black Bottle smoky tail. Made to a secret recipe – with an ingenious, alchemic method to bring a secret smoke to life – CAPTAIN’S CASK combines smooth older malts with intense, explosive ones for a powerful yet balanced taste. Master Blender Julieann Fernandez went all out with this one, using peated malts which had been finishing in the finest rum casks to enhance the wonderful tropical fruit notes of the grain. Packed full of ripe pineapple and toasted oak, this complex blend has layers of toffee, hazelnut and freshly burnt kindling, with a sprinkle of cracked black pepper.
