A rather young (for them) release from Berry Brothers & Rudd, but testament to their philosophy that it's about maturity rather than age. The peat balances the citrus notes, leading to a quite delicious dram.
A 7 year old whisky distilled at Bruichladdich in 2003, deeply coloured thanks to its unusual maturation - rather than maturing in ex-bourbon casks before being ACE-d, or finished, this whisky was aged solely in Port casks.
The fourth batch in Benromach's Origins series goes back to both batch 2 and experiments done by previous generations of the Urquahart family, owners of both Benromach and Gordon & Macphail. This is fully matured in port pipes, giving a sweet vanilla hit and some smoky undertones.
The fifth release of Edradour's limited edition 2003 vintage bourbon cask whisky, limited to just 1496 decanters and bottled at 10 years of age. A beautifully presented release from the Highlands's smallest distillery.
The third and final release in Springbank distillery's Rundlets and Kilderkins series, this time it's triple distilled Hazelburn that was maturing in the titular 60 and 80 litre casks between 2003 and January 2014. Small casks mean lots of wood contact and this combines the elegant Hazelburn with lots of wood influence for an oaky dram.
A historic moment: TWE's first Finnish whisky! Teerenpeli distillery was founded in 2002 at the brewery of the same name in Lahti, Finland, and the name means 'flirtation' or 'dalliance'. We tried this 8yo at Whisky Live and were knocked out at how balanced and tasty it was - this is a very well-made whisky and is destined to be a huge hit.
