Kind of anyway!  

Yes, Caskstrength has been dormant for nearly a year now, in readiness of our brand new website,, which is officially launching on 1st April 2016.  It's been a long time coming, but we promise the wait will be worthwhile.

In the meantime -  until the 1st April, we bring you new news!  GENUINE NEW NEWS!! 

Joel and I are really really super-god-damn-'riffic excited to announce the next in a long line of Alphabetic whisky releases that we embarked upon nearly six years ago.  Some of you may remember that we got to the letter 'E' back in 2013.  

Then all went quiet. 

That's because we've spent the past three years trawling round warehouses, meeting fascinating people and trying some truly incredible single casks of whisky.  

Such was the magnitude of what we were trying, that we decided to go off at a slight tangent.. 

Exile Casks was born, with the very simple premise of three words that ring true with both of us:

Great whisky deserves to be discovered - and tasted. Not coveted, cosseted and covered up in a cabinet gathering dust. It deserves to be uncorked, liberated, liberally poured and enjoyed with friends. 

So that gave us the idea of Exile Casks: Exceptional single cask whiskies of real genuine age, each with a story attached to them, delivered direct to you.  

Each release will be different from the last. A limited run of bottlings, starting with the very first one, which will be available to buy from the 31st March 2016.   

Only from 

We're incredibly proud of the first release. We'll be telling you more about this one next Monday, including the name and the incredible story behind the cask, so stay tuned, but for the time being we can let you into a secret... it's going to blow your mind.  

 There will only be 190 bottles of the first release. 

It's 25 years old. It's only £65+P&P
