Cadenheads Back in US?

Postby bcrossan » Thu Jun 03, 2010 5:04 am

I got word from one of my local liquor stores that Preiss Imports is going to be importing Cadenhead bottlings to the US again. I know in TX these have not been available for a while and I am pretty sure that is the same with the rest of the country. Has anyone else heard anything about this?

Single Cask Cadenhead's would be a more than welcome sight in the US again.

Did these ever show? I haven't seen them around here (Madison, WI), but they'd be a welcome sight.

The Campbeltown district of my collection includes a Springbank 100 proof, a Glen Scotia 12, a Kilkerran WIP, a "poured from the cask in a Cadenhead's shop" bottle, and a Duthies 46%. The Duthies is king.

It's a Duthies Campbeltown with no distillery declared and NAS. 46%, no chill filter. Organge label.

I got it from the Cadenhead's shop on Edinburgh's Royal Mile in May 2010 and have been nursing it ever since. The shopkeeper recommended it, adding that he had just given a gift of the same to his father-in-law. "Totally decent stuff," was his summary, as I recall.
I'm no Cambeltown expert, but I love 'em and I think this is the best I've had. I'd really love to see it stateside.

Wow! What a funny little chance. And I probably wouldn't believe it if you didn't have the profile and post history on this site to show it's true.

With all the folks coming through your shop, I can't expect you to remember one random Yank from 2+ years ago, but I remember you! For me, it was a great moment on an exceptionally great trip. You generously poured some samples from the casks behind the counter, one of which was my first-ever taste of Campbeltown. What an eye-opener! All the Campbeltown bottles I named above (which the Duthies stands out from) have been special-occasion gifts from the wife since that day.
Her: "Honey, it's Father's Day coming up. Anything special you'd like?"
Me: "Campbeltown whisky!"

We also hit up Feis Ile on Islay before returning home from that trip, and I begrudged not the spot in my luggage taken up by Duthies instead of a festival bottling. (Though I can't say the same for the spot that was taken up by a Loch Lomond.)

So, thanks!
And I don't suppose there's any chance you can reveal anything more about mystery contents of that Duthies? Though really, I believe it's a vatted malt, and it wouldn't take TOO much guessing to land on the Campbeltown distilleries that must have gone into it. : )

Cheers,
