Blackadder Raw Cask whisky is created in the centuries-old tradition of natural distillation and years spent maturing in cask. The result is a pure Scottish, unfiltered libation of rich liquid amber that is truly "whisky from the Old School."
A selection of small bites prepared by The Sea's Executive Chef Yu Min Lin will accompany this flight of rare and intriguing whiskies: Blackadder Auchentoshan 1991 24yr 55.8%, Blackadder Drop of the Irish 1989 26yr 56.2%, Blackadder Amrut Rum Cask Finish 61.4%, Blackadder Macallan 1989 27yr 45.7%, Blackadder Bunnahabhain 1989 26yr 44.7% and Blackadder Raw Cask Peat Reek 59.3%.
Chef Lin, 39 years old, grew up in Taiwan and trained in Japan. At The Sea, he has become known for his fine dining seafood-focused menu prepared with premium quality ingredients and techniques that distinguished his previous work at the Michelin two-star restaurant Providence located in Los Angeles. In 2008, together with Chef Michael Cimarusti, Lin defeated the most famous Iron Chef, Masaharu Morimoto, in “Battle Black Fish” on the Food Network’s Iron Chef America program.
