An impressive new bottling today - an exclusive single cask from Midleton, distilled in 1991 and bottled at the end of last year. At almost 21 years old this is the oldest single pot still whiskey we've ever tried and one of a very small number of single cask whiskies to come out of the Midleton warehouses in recent times. Tim has more information about it and some tasting notes over on our blog.

In summary - it's a bit of a fruit bomb.

Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey
A very exciting single cask of Irish whiskey bottled exclusively for The Whisky Exchange. This first fill bourbon cask of single pot still whiskey from Ireland's largest distillery, Midleton, was distilled in November 1991 and bottled at cask strength in October 2012 a month shy of its 21st birthday. A profusion of tropical fruit flavours on a luxurious bed of creamy vanilla.

Severe Weather Affecting Deliveries

We have been advised by our couriers that UK deliveries are currently being disrupted due to the severe weather conditions affecting many parts of the country. In the worst-affected areas, serious disruption is expected.

Courier Statement: "Red alert weather warnings have been issued for South Wales as heavy snow is already falling, and amber alerts predict moderate snow falls over much of England and Wales throughout the day. We will endeavour to deliver where it is safe to do so but disruption is inevitable today."

Update: We have just been advised that many postcode areas are so badly affected that drivers are unable to leave their depots. Apologies for the delay & disruption to services.

We apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused by these delays to the delivery services.  Unfortunately these circumstances are out of our control, but we hope that the disruption will be short-lived.

The latest edition of Glenmorangie's very popular Private Edition annual releases is Glenmorangie Ealanta. The name means "skilled and ingenious", and Ealanta is perhaps the purest expression of Glenmorangie's wood policy since Astar, being entirely comprised of whisky that has been full-term matured in new virgin oak casks made with trees from the company's famous stash in the Ozark mountains.

Ealanta is notable also as the first Private Edition to have a vintage (1993) and an age statement (19 year old). We can't wait to see how it's turned out.

Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling
The 2013 release in Glenmorangie's annual Private Edition series of small batch wood experiments, Ealanta differs from its predecessors as it has been full-term matured (rather than finished) in its designer casks, which in this instance are made from heavily toasted new white oak.
This is limited to 1 bottle per customer
