A giant leap forward for Bunnahabhain 12yo, this edition was launched in summer 2010 with a jump in strength to 46.3% and a declaration of no chill-filtration and no added colouring. Enormous credit goes to Burn Stewart for giving punters what they want without jacking up the price too much and we earnestly hope that this will be a massive success. Bravo!
World Whiskies Awards 2014: Best Islay Single Malt 12yo and Under
A 50cl bottle of Suntory's excellent Hibiki 12yo, the starting point of the Hibiki range. It's a fantastic example of a Japanese style blended whisky: sweet and perfumed. Along with grain from Chita and malt from Yamazaki they use some whisky matured in plum wine casks in the mix.
A gift set containing a bottle of perennial-favourite Highland Park 12 Year Old and a pair of glasses to share it from. It remains one of the gold standard malts for other distillery bottlings to aspire to. With a delicious sweetness (heather-honey is their preferred description) and a warming, silky mouthfeel, this is a whisky that never lets you down.
Glen Scotia's 2013 reboot sees the familiar old 12 year old replaced by a radically different tall bottle decorated with one of Scotland's iconic hairy cows. Fans of the old 12 year old will be delighted to discover that the relaunched edition now packs more of a punch, with the strength having been upped to a feisty 46%.
This is the third edition of Tweeddale's blended Scotch whisky, released in March 2013. This is a blend of 18 year old sherry butt matured grain whisky and eight different single malts, aged between 13 and 21 years old.
Redbreast is a beautifully balanced pure pot still Irish Whiskey, with a warm, generous texture, rich, sweet flavours and a spicy kick. In the view of many connoisseurs, the finest Irish whiskey available.
World Whiskies Awards 2014: Best Pot Still 12yo and Under
Introduced to Glen Garioch's standard range in late 2010 this 12yo is a mix of ex-Bourbon and sherry casks and, like the other distillery bottlings since the revamp, has been bottled at a feisty 48%. A real charmer. World Whiskies Awards 2012 - Best Highland 12 years and under
Balvenie Signature 12yo replaced the fondly-remembered Founders Reserve 10yo as the staple in the distillery's range. This is a marriage of Sherry, Bourbon and Refill casks and, as always with Balvenie, it's a polished, mellow whisky to relax with.
Please note this is limited to three bottles per customer.
