About Uncharted's Come As You Are
First-fill oloroso sherry cask maturation… what is not to love?
Distilled in July of 2012, this stunning malt has soaked in sumptuous sherry wood for all its life. A fantastic spirit born of the Ayrshire coast, this is often referred to in the indy whisky world as ‘Dalrymple’. This is a title given to the spirit by the distillery, taken from the distillery’s local village. This is a glass of butterscotch and sticky toffee pudding drowned in melting vanilla ice cream, served at cask strength with an awesome natural colour as dark as stewed tea.
This was a sherry butt- that is a big cask. There was a yield of 687 bottles and about half of that is staying in the UK.
What's in a name? Come as you are?
A lot of what Jack and Dana do at Uncharted Whisky is seeking out and buying lots of different casks. They only bottle casks that are exceptional - so what do they do with a cask that maybe haven’t been matured in the best wood? We have to re-rack it. This means pumping the whisky out of the tired cask it is in and sourcing a brand new cask with loads of funky fresh flavour to receive the spirit… and then they sit back and wait.
That is the bread and butter of Uncharted's business. In a nut shell, creating something remarkable from something that was un-remarkable.
However, every once in a while, Jack and Dana find a cracker of a cask that is perfect the way it is. It needs no further work. They get the cask, they adore it, they bottle it. Come As You Are. That is what happened here.
