So here we are folks, one again poised before another exciting time for whisky releases. And we're extra specially proud, as November 11th is the official release of our 4th bottling in the series of the Caskstrength & Carry On 'A-Z of Whiskies' - and this one is a biggie.
We've come some way with our last bottlings: From the Arran first fill single cask, to a spice-laden BenRiach to the Cutty Sark we launched in March this year to commemorate the 90th anniversary of the brand, Caskstrength have always tried to bring you something exciting, vibrant and above all else superbly drinkable. This time round, we've gone even further... into the 3rd dimension of flavour to be precise.
Ladies and gentlemen, we bring you 3D Whisky!
3D has been our most ambitious project yet and brings together a partnership between three distinctly different distilleries: Dailuaine, Dalwhinnie and Dufftown
Working with Dr Matthew Crow, one of the master blenders for Johnnie Walker, we've come up with a brand new recipe blending these three great distilleries together, to produce something that literally takes whisky to another dimension.
3D Whisky is bottled at 56.4% and will be limited to 504 hand signed, individually numbered bottles.
In addition, the label harks back to a golden age of 3D, printed in true 'StereoScopic' effect and every bottle comes with a pair of 3D glasses to enhance your viewing (and possibly drinking) experience.

If not, we'll tell you where you can get one printed
But that's not all. On the back is where it gets really cool. Bringing together both Old and New Schools is what Caskstrength is all about and on the back label you'll find a QR Code that enables you to download the plans for the very first 'Print-Your-Own' presentation case in the drinks business for your bottle of 3D, using the latest, most high tech 3D printing capabilities.
We've also had a lot of fun during the project and have made a short feature film (which is partially shot in 3D) charting the thrilling time we had constructing such a monstrous whisky. You can see the trailer for the film here: http://youtu.be/evhklEgMMXY
The premier of the full film will take place at 7.30pm on the release date '3D Day':
Monday 11th November.
As with our previous releases, the chaps at Master Of Malt will be retailing 3D whisky and a bottle will set you back just £49.99
This is whisky, Jim... But not as we know it...
