The Scottish Highlands are home to various distilleries making disparate styles of single malt. From the maritime malts of Oban and Pulteney to the light, citrussy Glernmorangie and the dry complexity of Glen Ord, there's something for everyone here. Read More »
The 18 year old offering from Loch Lomond. The site is multi functional and is home to a malt distillery, a grain distillery (which creates High Commissioner Whisky) and even a cooperage. This is sweet and smoky with hints of raisins and Christmas pudding.
Just like the 15yo, Glendronach Allardice 18yo (named after the distillery's founder) has been 100% matured in Oloroso sherry casks. We're delighted to welcome Glendronach back from the wilderness - Billy Walker and his team are doing outstanding work here.
A single cask 2006 vintage Edradour, selected by The Whisky Exchange in early 2013 and bottled by the distillery at 7 years of age. While visiting the distillery we tried a number of their single casks and were shocked at the depth of flavour they'd manage to get into this dram in such a short amount of time - fresh and zesty with a solid oloroso sherry wood backbone.
A triple matured expression of Dalmore originally launched for the Travel Retail market. This was aged in a combination of first fill ex-bourbon casks from Boston and Clermont, oloroso butts from Gonzalez Byass and port pipes.
A single cask 1997 vintage Clynelish released in 2013 by independent bottlers Hunter Laing as part of their Old Malt Cask series. This was one of the first bottlings released after Douglas Laing was split in two, with Stewart creating Hunter Laing.
Launched in Spring 2013, initially for the travel retail market only, Glengoyne's 15 year old Distiller's Gold. About as unsmoky as a whisky can get, it has been aged predominantly in sherry casks, leading to a rich, sweet and remarkably balanced whisky.
Ballechin is the name given to the heavily peated whisky produced at Edradour Distillery. The barrels used for maturation vary with each release. The seventh release has been fully matured in First Fill Bordeaux hogsheads.
The eight and final release in Ballechin's The Discovery Series. Matured in first fill Sauternes hogsheads throughout it's life, this was released in 2013. The next Ballechin to be released after this one, will be the 10 year old in Summer 2014, which will be the core expression going forward.
A hogshead of 1995 Macduff, bottled at full strength at the end of 2012 by Signatory for their Cask Strength Collection. You don't see a lot of these about, as most of Macduff's spirit goes into owner Dewar's William Lawson blend.
A 1996 vintage sherry-matured Clynelish released by independent bottlers Douglas Laing as part of their Old Particular series. Aged for 17 years in refill butt 10033 before being bottled in October 2013.
Originally launched as part of the travel retail only 'The Lighthouse Collection' in August 2013, Pentland Skerries is named after not one but two lighthouses, which are located on the eponymous archipelago between the mainland and Orkney. The taste leaves you in no doubt as to its sherried origins.
