    Glaswegian Single Grain 29 Year Old / Whisky Works

    A classic whisky from a now-silent grain distillery, which once stood at the heart of Glasgow’s waterways. Matured for 29 years in American white-oak casks, this light grain whisky has developed a wonderfully balanced, sweet character full of butterscotch, vanilla and exotic fruity flavours.

  • Mortlach 16 Year Old / Distiller's Dram

    Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky

    70cl / 43.4%

    5 (2 Reviews)

    Mortlach 16 Year Old / Distiller's Dram

    A rich and sherried expression from Mortlach that's will always be compared to the fan-favourite 16-year-old Flora & Fauna bottling. This is more balanced than that discontinued dram, with a mix of first-fill and refill sherry casks giving a wider range of sherry-cask character, from rich and dark dried fruit to plump and juicy berries.

    4.5 (52 Reviews)

  • Pike Creek 21 Year Old Speyside Cask Ltd Release

    Canadian Whisky

    75cl / 45%

    4 (1 Review)

    Pike Creek 21 Year Old Speyside Cask Ltd Release

    An innovative Canadian whisky that's been aged for 21 years and then finished in casks that previously held Scotch whisky from Speyside. It's far from a gimmick, however – taste it and you'll discover rich, fruity notes combined with warm spice, dry oak, prunes, hints of tobacco and a rich, honeyed butteryness. The Speyside finish has added depths of spice to what is already a pedigree whisky, and this is a fantastic dram for those with an adventurous palate.

    70cl / 40%

    5 (1 Review)

    Jura 12 Year Old

    The core of the Jura range, aged for 12 years in bourbon casks and then finished in Oloroso sherry. The result blends the distillery's characteristic gently smoky character with sweetness, spice and dark fruit. A great introduction to Jura.
