Daftmill 2006 Single Cask #35 - W Club Description

The W Club team hand-selected this cask for bottling in early 2020 when the early discussions of Doddie’s Charity Whisky Auction had just started. As soon as the bottles were filled, we held on to bottle #50 as our own contribution to the auction, with the bottle number being a nod to Doddie’s 50th birthday this year.

Daftmill is a single farm estate distillery in the Kingdom of Fife. Owned and operated by the Cuthbert family, distillation only runs in the farm's quiet periods, producing as few as 100 casks per year. Each batch is highly sought-after, with most releases only being available to buy through winning a ballot, due to extremely high demand. In other words, Daftmill is hot property!

For this single cask expression, Chariot barley was harvested from the farm's Dam Park and Curling Pond fields on 31st August 2004, and was among the last to be malted in Fife by Robert Kilgour & Co. before they closed. Distilled in the summer season of 2006, the spirit was filled to an ex-bourbon barrel from Kentucky's Heaven Hill distillery, number 035/2006.

Just 216 bottles have been filled, each one bearing an individual bottle number and presented at a natural cask strength of 56.4% abv.

Each winner of a bottle from Doddie's auction will receive two complimentary Glencairn glasses, branded with the My Name'5 Doddie Foundation logo (pictured on homepage)!

Doddie Weir OBE is one of rugby’s most recognizable personalities. He earned 61 caps for Scotland during a successful playing career.

Doddie is now facing his biggest challenge. In June 2017 the Scot revealed he was suffering from Motor Neuron Disease. From the outset, Doddie has been driven to help fellow sufferers and seek ways to further research into this, as yet, incurable disease.

In November 2017 Doddie and his Trustees launched the registered charity My Name’5 Doddie Foundation. Its aims are simple: to raise funds to aid research into the causes of Motor Neuron Disease and investigate potential cures; to make grants to individuals suffering from MND, to enable them to live as fulfilled a life as possible.
