Here we have Batch 11 of The GlenDronach Cask Strength series. This Highland single malt has been matured in oloroso and Pedro Ximénez sherry casks for big helpings of dried fruit character, and sweet spice. Bottled naturally coloured, non-chill filtered, and at a robust ABV of 59.8%, so a drop of water wouldn't go amiss. A great whisky to cosy up with next to the fireplace this one.
It has been matured within fine Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso sherry casks, from Andalucia in Spain, and port casks, from the Douro Valley in Portugal, as was imported and served in the houses of Scotland’s gentry at turn of the 19th century. The Spanish sherry casks bring out the rich house character of The GlenDronach while the port casks add the complex layers of bramble fruitiness that pay homage to the distillery’s home. In many ways it is the expression that our founder Allardice would have enjoyed in Glen House in years gone by.
This right here is a 25 year old single malt Scotch whisky from the Talisker distillery. Housing a single malt Scotch whisky that was predominantly matured in American oak hogsheads with some European oak refill. Truly spectacular stuff from the beautiful island of Skye.
‘The Flames of the Phoenix' is an appropriate theme for the 2022 Special Release bottling of Lagavulin, as it was designed to be the most phenolic Lagavulin yet. Fans of the distillery will know that means a truly peaty customer, with lots of spice and power amplified by the virgin oak casks this heavily peated Lagavulin was aged in, alongside American oak refill casks.
This tremendous Talisker joins Diageo's 2022 Special Release lineup following 11 years of maturing in first-fill ex-bourbon casks. Deliciously sweet and fruit-forward, with all the classic layers of pepper and coastal bonfire, this lightly peated offering fits right into the collection. The label features a rather mesmerizing luminescent jellyfish, bringing some light to the dark depths of the ocean.
Cuervo® Gold is golden-style joven tequila made from a blend of reposado (aged) and younger tequilas. Ever the story-maker, Cuervo® Gold’s own story includes the leading role in the invention of The Margarita, and it is still the perfect tequila for that beloved cocktail.
The second addition to The Original Stories series from The Glenlivet! This expression follows The Glenlivet 12 Year Old - Illicit Still, and celebrates the next chapter in the history of the distillery's founder George Smith. After years of illicit distilling, Smith became one of the first to gain a license to legally distill Scotch following the passing of the 1823 Excise Act. Matured for 12 years in a combination of American and European oak, we reckon he'd be rather proud of this splendid Speysider.
The Macallan Sherry Oak 18 Years Old forms part of our Sherry Oak range which features a series of single malt whiskies matured in hand-picked sherry seasoned oak casks from Jerez for richness and complexity. A full bodied palate of mature oak, ginger and raisin flavours is complimented by a light mahogany natural colour.
Samuel Gelston's Single Malt, a non age statement Single Malt, matured in ex-bourbon casks, is a versatile premium whiskey. With a savoury spice note coming to the fore, this expression is perfect served neat, or adding a unique character to your favourite whiskey cocktail or Irish Coffee.
Johnnie Walker gets experimental with this Blenders' Batch Bourbon Cask and Rye Finish. A blend from five distilleries, including Dufftown and Port Dundas, was aged in first-fill bourbon casks and finished in rye casks, for a Scotch whisky full of American bourbon and spicy rye character. This is a litre bottle of the stuff, which is a great sipper, but also works rather well in a Scotch twist on a Manhattan.
