Bain's Cape Mountain South African Single Grain Whiskey 40°: Description and customer reviews

Released in 2009, this whisky from the James Sedgwick distillery can be described as a pioneer. Indeed, it is the first South African grain whisky.

Bain's Cape Mountain South African Single Grain Whisky spent three years in bourbon casks before spending a further two years in first-fill bourbon barrels.

It was named best grain whisky at the World Whiskies Awards in 2013.

Our tasting note from Thomas

The nose offers the traditional delicacy of grain whisky. Almond cake and egg cream mingle with pears in syrup. Hints of citrus (orange), shredded coconut, vanilla and toffee follow. Finally, a touch of rye makes its way to our nostrils.

The palate is not very powerful, and carries these notes of almond cake. The egg cream is still there, too, along with a few spices (ginger in particular, white pepper), rye, a little vanilla and coconut milk. Then there are light notes of popcorn and varnish. In fact, the palate remains really accessible and close to certain American whiskeys.

The finish remains very soft, carried by almonds, caramel, vanilla and spices (pepper, ginger). The pastry and spicy elements remain on the palate.

" A grain whisky reminiscent of a bourbon with softened contours..."
