COLOR: Warm, golden amber
NOSE: Combination of toffee, floral and vanilla aromas
PALATE: A hint of spice softened by the sweet undertones of oak
FINISH: A warm and extended mouth-feel with an exceptionally smooth finish
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 92 points - The mineral, flinty and savory aromatics are a surprise. But they don’t make it to the palate, which is dominated by candied orange, tropical fruit and peach flesh. Tropical notes sear through the finish, leaving a deep, lasting impression. (Apr 2016)
Bain’s Single Grain Whisky is a double matured whisky produced from 100% South African Yellow Maize, you may call this corn. We first mature it in specially selected first-fill bourbon casks for a period of three years, we then transfer it to a second set of first-fill bourbon casks for a further 18 to 30 months to extract a full rich flavor like no other.
|Inspired by the Cape Mountains and its natural beauty, Bain’s Single Grain Whisky is the first of its kind in South Africa. It pays tribute to the man, Andrew Geddes Bain, who built the Bainskloof Pass that connects the town of Wellington, where our distillery is located, to the interior of the country back in 1853.
