Malt whisky is the ‘original’ whisky of Scotland. Malt whisky is made only from malted barley, in two (occasionally three) copper pot stills, by a batch process. ‘Single’ malt whisky is the product of an individual distillery. Read More »
The replacement for the old 12yo as the distillery's standard bottling, Glenturret 10yo has a deliciously rich, fruity character. You can see why Famous Grouse is so successful with Glenturret as its backbone.
A delicious sherry-finished Aberlour, with just the right amount of sherry to enhance the profile of the standard 10yo, without letting the wine take over. Previously only available in France, we think this will be a hit.
Caol ila 12 Year Old is of medium weight, but still packing plenty of potent phenols, this is a refined, powerful dram with a compensating oiliness. A balanced, peaty beauty. International Wine & Spirits Competition 2010: Gold Medal - Best in Class IWSC 2012 - Gold Medal - Whisky - Scotch
Springbank 10's relatively light colour belies its richness of character. The nose moves from citrus fruits to pears and a hint of peat, while the palate shows touches of smoke, vanilla essence, nutmeg, cinnamon and the salty tang characteristic of the distillery. A winner at the World Whisky Awards 2010.
Released in Spring 2010, this Glenfiddich Rich Oak has spent 14 years in ex-bourbon casks in the traditional way, before two separate finishes of 12 weeks in new European oak and six weeks in new American oak before bottling. We like the sound of this.
Benromach Peat Smoke distilled in 2004 is part of the small number of batches of peated whisky. With a level of 53ppm, this is seriously smoky with notes of liquorice, orange (without water) or grapefruit (with water).
The peated release of Loch Lomond was launched in 2008 by popular demand. Home to a cooperage, malt distillery and a grain distillery (which produces the best selling Glen's Vodka), Loch Lomond is a multi functioning site. This has notes of soft fruit and is hugely peated.
A no-age statement release from Longrow. One of the three whiskies distilled at Springbank distillery, Longrow is generally peaty in comparison to its siblings. A well balanced whisky with some slightly medicinal notes.
A 1997 vintage whisky from Benrinnes, bottled by Gordon & Macphail for the Connoisseurs Choice range. Not a lot of whisky from the distillery gets out as single malt, being a blenders favourite, but fortunately G&M have impressive stocks hidden away in their warehouses...
A 1999 vintage Dalmore under the Connoisseurs Choice label of independent bottlers Gordon & Macphail. The distillery gained notoriety in 2002 when a 62 year old release became the most expensive bottle of whisky sold up to that point, at just over £25,000.
A 1997 vintage Dailuaine bottled by Signatory for their Un-Chillfiltered Collection. Distilled on 12th August, it was aged for 16 years in a pair of hogsheads before being bottled on 13th November 2013.
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!
A gift set containing a bottle of Macallan Gold and a pair of branded cufflinks. Gold was released in late 2012 as part of a series of colour-themed bottlings introduced to replace the distillery's age-statement expressions. Produced from 9-15yo first fill and refill sherry casks, it was designed to sit between the now-defunct 10yo Sherry Oak and 10yo Fine Oak bottlings.
