A quarter bottle of Dalwhinnie 15yo, the Highland representative in Diageo's Classic Malts series. Dalwhinnie 15yo is a good introduction to the delights of single malt whisky - elegant, smooth and medium-bodied with a light, fruity palate and a whiff of heather on the finish.
A 20cl bottle of 15 year old Glengoyne. Famously the only distillery where the malt is produced in the Highlands but matured in the Lowlands, with the road splitting the two being the boundary. This has notes of vanilla and spice and is complex, sweet and rounded.
Immensely popular Glenfiddich variant. Using a Solera system common in the maturation of quality sherry, 15yo malt from three different types of casks is married together in a wooden vat, which is constantly topped up to ensure the quality is maintained.
Dalwhinnie 15yo is a good introduction to the delights of single malt whisky - elegant, smooth and medium-bodied with a light, fruity palate and a whiff of heather on the finish. Part of Diageo's Classic Malt range.
A 15 year-old expression of Singleton of Dufftown, Diageo's easy-drinking Speysider. This is a mix of European and American oak casks, producing a smooth, sweet, approachable style and a spicy, drying finish.
A 15 year old Old Pulteney, bottled by Gordon & Macphail and presented with a replica of the old distillery label. The distillery is located in Wick and, as of 2013, is the second northernmost distillery on the Scottish mainland.
A 15 year old whisky from the creatively independent folks at Benriach in Speyside. This time they've finished their whisky in tawny port casks, adding some rich vine fruit to their already fruity whisky.
Glendronach Revival is the culmination of nearly a year's hard work by the distillery's new owners, replicating their success at Benriach. This Oloroso-matured Revival received a whopping 92 points from the highly-esteemed Whiskyfun website.
Glencadam 15 has gone from strength to strength since a packaging facelift in 2009, at which time the strength was upped to 46% by owners Angus Dundee, who took over the distillery from Allied in 2003. An undersung distillery that is now starting to stretch its wings with some very good value for money whiskies.
