The Dimensions Collection - New Releases
Bottled from single casks at cask strength, The Dimensions Collection is testament to the diversity and influence of individual casks, offering unrepeatable expressions from both renowned and lesser known distilleries.
Neither chill filtered nor artificially coloured, only the finest whiskies are selected for inclusion ensuring that each release delivers the multidimensional character of the distillery, true to our ethos “Whisky Without Compromise”.
Our May 2019 releases are no exception. All three whiskies have been bottled in May 2019 and are exemplary with depth and complexity befitting The Dimensions Collection.
