Distilled at Tobermory on the Isle of Mull, this is a great example of combining their weighty spirit with active sherry cask maturation. Dark and fruity, with heavy notes of chocolate, plums and leathery spice, this is a flavour bomb that will keep any sherried whisky fan happy.
This is a cask strength edition of the wonderful Port Askaig 19 year old, bursting with fabulously flinty, lemony, seashells-on-the-sea-shore flavours. Although the alcoholic strength has only gone up around 4%, the result is a very noticeable jump in flavour intensity. A truly elemental whisky, perfect for swigging from hipflasks during cold winter walks.
A wonderfully fresh, minerally Caol Ila bottled by TWE from a single ex-bourbon cask. Lots of sea air, seaweed and seashells make this the olfactory equivalent of a picnic on the beach. A big hit at 2012's TWE Whisky Show.

A beautiful hogshead of Glengoyne 1990 bottled for The Whisky Exchange. Creamy melted vanilla ice-cream on thick crust baked apple pie. Glengoyne's lack of peat leads some to regard it as a worthy but dull whisky, but the truth is that the spirit made here is of remarkable quality, and when it gets into the right cask the results are magical.
