A gift pack containing a bottle of Glenmorangie's 10 year old with a miniature of Quinta Ruban. The 'original' sets a high standard for Highland whisky, and has gone from strength to strength since its slightly controversial packaging redesign a few years ago. Medium-bodied and gently warming, with pleasant spicy notes.
Highland Park 12yo remains one of the gold standard malts for other distillery bottlings to aspire to. With a delicious sweetness (heather-honey is their preferred description), a trace of smoke and a warming, silky mouthfeel, this is a whisky that never lets you down.

A much-loved single malt, Cardhu is an easygoing, charming Speysider. With clean, crisp oak and sweet malt evoking flavours of honeyed flapjacks and home-made caramel squares, this is one for the sweet-toothed among you.
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 massive success as the island representative in Diageo's 'Classic Malts' series, Talisker 10yo's profile keeps increasing as more fans discover its intense coastal spicy, peaty character. A truly elemental malt. Malt Maniacs Awards 2010: Best Natural Cask Award 2010 (Daily Drams)
The Glenrothes traditionally bottle single malts from specific vintages, so this no-age-statement example raised a few eyebrows when it first appeared. However, the only thing recent batches have raised is the bar - this is tremendous easy-drinking Speyside.
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.
Laphroaig 10yo is a full-bodied, smoky gem, with a residual sweetness and a hint of salt amidst the seaweedy, peaty characters before a long warming finish. A classic dram. IWSC 2012 - Gold Medal - Whisky - Scotch
Batch 46 of the increasingly popular full proof sherry monster from Aberlour, A'bunadh. This one follows close on the heels of batch 45 and promises the usual combination of active sherry cask maturation and punchy strength.
A great gift pack from Ardbeg, bringing together their best-selling 10 year old whisky with a mini of the fan favourite Uigeadail, a mix of both bourbon and sherry casks much loved by most peat heads. This is limited to 2 packs per customer
The Islay representative in the 'Classic Malts' series is a deep, dry and exceptionally peaty bruiser. Probably the most pungent of all Islay malts, Lagavulin is not for the faint-hearted but inspires fanatical devotion in its many followers. Malt Maniacs Awards 2010 & 2011: Non-Plus-Ultra Award (Daily Drams) IWSC 2012 - Gold Outstanding Medal - Whisky - Scotch
A malt whisky of unmistakable honey-rich maturity and depth. Glenlivet 18yo is the winner of 2 gold medals in the International Wine and Spirit Competition (I.W.S.C.) and remains one of the best-value expressions of sherried Speyside.
