The Perfect Dram
A full-strength bottling of a single 1970 first-fill Oloroso sherry butt from one of Speyside's finest distilleries, just the (natural) colour of this has got us licking our lips. Very unlucky to miss out on a gold Medal at 2009's Malt Maniacs Awards.

Campbeltown Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling
The 2010 official release for Hazelburn, Springbank's triple-distilled, unpeated single malt, which is now fully mature. It's quite a colour too, suggesting some sherry influence in the final make-up. Well-priced, we expect this to go quickly.

August '09 20th Thursday

A handful of treasures hitting our online virtual cyber-shelves today.  We have the latest in the highly successful heavily-peated Ballechin series from Edradour (who also chip in with a full strength single cask), this time matured in a 'normal' Oloroso sherry cask. 

We also have a very special old Longmorn, Douglas Laing's latest G1£nf*rcl&s and a 30yo Macallan from a single non-sherry cask. 

And finally, we have the world-conquering Hankey Bannister 40yo.  Which is nice.

*STOP PRESS*  Just in time for the weekend, we have none other than Port Charlotte PC8!

70cl / 46%
Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling
This is the fourth release of Ballechin, the heavily-peated malt from Edradour. The interesting thing here is that while previous releases have been matured in unusual casks like Burgundy and Madeira, this is a straightforward full-term Sherry maturation - and Oloroso sherry at that.
£62.45 Inc. VAT
(£52.04 Ex. VAT)
70cl / 43.3%
Blended Scotch Whisky
Produced to celebrate the 250th anniversary of the Hankey Bannister company, this 40yo went on to scoop the title of Best Blended Whisky in the World at the World Whiskies Awards. A true one-off, containing whisky from long-extinct distilleries including Glen Flagler, Killyloch and Garnheath.

Another fascinating bottling for Douglas Laing's 60th Anniversary celebrations - this time it's a 40yo from a sherry butt of what could in all honesty be Glenfarclas. Yummy.

An Edradour 1996 bottled from a single cask at full strength. Judging by the colour, that must have been a pretty active cask to impart so much in just 13 years...

Douglas Laing
Another rarity from the peerless Douglas Laing - an old cask-strength Macallan 'without the sherry maturation'. We take this to mean that this 1979 vintage 30yo has been matured in ex-bourbon casks.

The fourth official release of Bruichladdich's heavily-peated Port Charlotte single malt came out in 2009, arriving the same week that it was named Best Whisky at the 2009 Whisky Fringe in Edinburgh. PC8 Ar Duthchas has been amongst the most highly-regarded of this hugely sought-after series ever since.

August '09 18th Tuesday

A mixed bag of whisky delights today after a brief hiatus caused by the combined effects of a devastating outbreak of annual leave alongside a particularly unforgiving strain of man flu (not swine flu, mind) sweeping through TWE Towers in the last couple of weeks.

In no particular order, we kick off with the trusty Ardmore breaking new ground with their first-ever 25yo (the oldest official bottling released from this distillery); then there's the experimental Woodford Reserve going back to their roots with the Masters Collection 1838 Sweet Mash; an ancient 40yo sherried Speysider and a relatively perky 21yo sherried Laphroaig as the newest Douglas Laing Anniversary bottlings (plus the Duty Free OB Triple Wood and a curious Islay / Speyside combo); a trio of outstanding new releases from the suddenly-superb Amrut; and the small matter of the newest of our sister company SDL's fantastic Rosebank 1991s. 

You lucky people!

Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling
The most recent extension of the revamped Ardmore brand (sister distillery to Laphroaig in the Jim Beam portfolio)is a cask-strength 25 year-old expression. Full and rich, with more than a hint of peat.

(£120.83 Ex. VAT)
70cl / 43.2%
Small Batch Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Another experiment in the Woodford Reserve Masters Collection, this 1838 Sweet Mash expression is made with entirely fresh ingredients - eschewing the addition of 'Sour' mash from the previous fermentation (as is standard practice across the industry).

Douglas Laing
Bottled in May 2009, this is another stunning bottling of Douglas Laing's splendid (and very old) sherried malts from 'Probably Speyside's Finest Distillery'. Absolutely delicious.

70cl / 46%
Indian Single Malt Whisky
The new 46% Amruts are a very different proposition to the pleasant but unexciting original release. At the higher strength this 24ppm peated effort fairly fizzes along the tastebuds. This is excellent - hugely improved stuff from a distillery coming along in leaps and bounds.
£40.95 Inc. VAT
(£34.13 Ex. VAT)
70cl / 50%
Indian Single Malt Whisky
Amrut Fusion gets its name from the fact that it uses two barleys: Indian and Scottish - with the latter being peated for good measure. Fusion has been picking up awards ever since it first appeared in 2009, and in 2012 was named the best whisky for a Rob Roy in the Ultimate Cocktail Challenge in New York.

70cl / 46%
Indian Single Malt Whisky
We were staggered by the quality of this new Amrut, matured first in India before spending its final three years of maturation in Europe. Robust and complex, with deliciously elegant compensating sweetness, this perfectly-balanced dram is a revelatory malt that could herald the breakthrough for Indian whisky.

70cl / 46%
Blended Malt Scotch Whisky
An intriguing combination of single casks of Laphroaig and Macallan, vatted together by Douglas Laing for a bit of a laugh. The Laphroaig, as you might expect, has come out on top in the ensuing flavour tussle.
