Launched in 2019 for duty-free, this is the first in the Founder’s Collection series paying tribute to Andrew Geddes Bain who built the Bain’s Kloof Pass, one of his most spectacular mountain passes constructed across South Africa. The whisky started its life as the standard Bain’s Cape Mountain Whisky but then spent an additional 10 years maturing in older American oak. Only 3,600 bottles were produced. Bottled at 52.5%. (Bottle size 1 litre)
Nose: Soft floral notes, spice, tropical fruits, banana and teak.
Palate: Sweet butterscotch, raisins and banana loaf.
Finish: A complex, smooth and delicately lingering taste.
