No age statement malt from Glen Grant, The Major's Reserve is very easy to drink, and a great entry level malt from the distillery.
Wine casks are great for imparting a wealth of fruity notes to whisky, and Glen Moray knows this fact particularly well indeed. What we've got here is a single malt from the Glen Moray Distillery which has been given a finishing period in casks that previously held Chardonnay wine. An intriguing choice, making for some excellent Speyside whisky.
A peaty expression joins Glen Moray's Classic range! Quite laid-back for a peated expression, but by no means lazy, this Speyside single malt Scotch whisky balances medicinal peaty whiffs with plenty of vanilla, orchard fruits and some floral, fragrant elements shining through along the way.
A 2014 addition to Glen Moray's selection of Speyside single malt Scotch whiskies, their Classic Port Cask Finish is treated to an 8 month finishing period in Tawny Port casks before being bottled.

The GlenDronach 12 Year Old, epitomises our unyielding dedication to the mastery of our craft. Matured in fine Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry casks from Andalucía in Spain, this richly sherried Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky presents smooth vanilla, soft fruits and a memorably long, nutty finish, for which it has become renowned. The expression is bottled at 43%, non-chill filtered and natural in colour.
Inspired by Scotland’s history of importing casked port during the 19th century, Glendronach Port Wood has been finished in port casks from Portugal’s Duoro Valley for three years.
. The palate offers notes of apple crumble, wild berries and sweet gingerbread.
In contrast to the traditional, non-peated character of the GlenDronach, this particular whisky has, unusually, been distilled using peated malted barley. The GlenDronach ‘Peated’ pays homage to the peat historically used to dry the malted barley in the traditional floor matlings during the early days of the distillery. The subtle peated notes in this intriguing expression complement the classic GlenDronach Highland character and the rich sherry notes drawn from the wood.
Our original, signature single malt Scotch whisky has matured for at least 12 years in American and Spanish oak casks. A fragrant malt which is balances the fruitiness of pear with the richness of subtle oak.
Glenfiddich 15 is innovatively matured in three types of oak cask: sherry, bourbon and new oak, before being married in our unique, handcrafted Oregon pine Solera vat. Year on year, this Solera vat is never emptied but is always kept at least half full creating a deliciously harmonious and intense whisky which gets more complex and intriguing every year.
The resulting touch of sweetness from the Sherry wood is perfectly balanced by the oakiness drawn from the traditional casks, delivering a single malt Scotch whisky of brilliant character - smooth and full bodied.

GLENGLASSAUGH Peated. Glenglassaugh’s waves of fruit and smoke are amplified in Peated Port Wood Finish. Whilst finishing in ruby Port pipes, the open structure of the oak brings waves of velvet tannins and peppered dark fruit, reminiscent of Winter berries by an open fire, kissed by the sea.
