The Seasons: Summer

Each of the 12 single cask whiskies in this series was chosen to tell the story of the passing seasons. The first three single malts in the collection were selected by our team to reflect the feel and flavours of a long, sunny summer. These are the perfect drams to enjoy on a warm evening – or at any time of year when you need a taste of sunshine.

Benriach 2008 15 Year Old

70cl / 51.9%

£110

(£157.14 per litre)

One of Speyside’s great old distilleries, Benriach is known for its generous notes of soft fruit and citrus. When we searched for a single malt to kick off our trio of summer whiskies, this cask from 2008 was a particular standout.

Lowland Single Malt 2012 11 Year Old

70cl / 58.8%

£69.95

(£99.93 per litre)

The Scottish Lowlands often bring to mind light, floral and refreshing single malts like this one from a mystery distillery. Filled with bright notes of stone fruit and a hint of vanilla, this is the perfect dram to serve to at your summer party.

Ardmore 1997 26Year Old

70cl / 50.3%

£199

(£284.29 per litre)

This well aged Ardmore is waxy and honeyed, with tropical notes that made us think of summer holidays on the beach. It might be the oldest whisky in the collection, but this still has plenty of freshness, with notes of peach and pineapple.
