All the island malts might be described a ‘maritime’ in character, except Isle of Arran, which is as sweet and fruity as a Speyside. Highland Park and Scapa are lightly smoky, Talisker and Ledaig (an expression made at Tobermory Distillery) distinctly so. Tobermory and Jura have no smoke. Read More »
A 1996 vintage Ledaig from independent bottlers Gordon & Macphail as part of their Connoisseurs Choice range, bottled in 2013. Ledaig is the name for peated whisky produced at Tobermory on the Isle of Mull.
An interesting entry in the Arran Cask Finishes range, with the spirit spending the last few years of its maturation in a Sauternes sweet wine cask. Expect some sweet grapey notes as well as some tasty woody spice.
A three pack of 20cl bottles of different Talsikers, comprising one eaxch of 10yo, Distillers Edition (finished in Amoroso sherry casks) and the cask strength 57' North. Please note that these are 20cl bottles! VERY SPECIAL PRICE!!
With the smoothness of the 10 year-old allied to extra complexity from more ageing, this is a winner. 'A delicious and sophisticated dram with impressive depth and almost perfect weight.' Jim Murray, Whisky Magazine Dec 2000
A big and punchy peat monster from Ledaig, bottled by The Whisky Exchange and released at The Whisky Show 2013 with a striking retro look. One of the hits of the Show Bottlings stand, with a fantastic combination of peat and sherry that's packed with flavour beyond its years.
The 2002 vintage of Talisker's ever popular and quite excellent Distillers Edition. Double matured, with the finishing period occurring in Amoroso (a sweetened fortified Spanish wine) casks, this is a sweet and smoky whisky.
The initially controversial 16yo official expression of Scapa is now winning people round with a jump in quality after a few wobbly years following the rapid transition from the much-loved 12yo via the short-lived 14yo. Orkney's less shouted about (but still lovely in its own way) malt whisky has found its feet. World Whiskies Awards 2012 - Best Island 13 to 20 years
