Introducing the first release of Strathearn Highland Single Malt. Strathearn Distillery joined the Douglas Laing family in October 2019 and, in-line with our approach, this Small Batch bottling is offered proudly at 46.6% alcohol strength, without colouring or chill-filtration.
Despite being distilled in 2013 and 2014, this is a surprisingly mature Single Malt having spent its life in the finest European oak and ex-Sherry casks.
Anticipate a soft and mellow style developing to rich red fruits and subtle sweetness from those Sherry casks.
Less spicy, more mature, slightly darker in colour, and deeper in flavour than the 12-year-old; the house style of the distillery, beautifully presented.
THE SINGLETON 15 Glen Ord. Glen Ord is one of three distilleries (along with Dufftown and Glendullan) which use The Singleton brand. The 15 Year Old is rich and complex with notes of ginger, vanilla and melon.
SINGLETON Of Glen Ord 12 Year Old Sherry Cask. The triple cask maturation process begins with maturing whisky respectively in a fusion of European oak Sherry casks and American oak Bourbon casks.
The Bourbon cask brings vanilla, caramel and woody notes and the Sherry cask adds fruity, bitter characters. After 12 years, these two whiskies are then brought together and married by Malt Master, Maureen Robinson
A sweet and citrus-forward single malt from Dufftown distillery. Matured in a combination of American and European oak casks, this is a richly honeyed dram filled with aromas of ginger, oranges and crunchy red apples that give way to a palate of stewed fruit, treacle toffee and berries.
Introduced as the flagship Port Charlotte expression produced by Bruichladdich in 2018, this 10 year old single malt from the Isle of Islay is a lip-smackingly smoky number indeed. It's peated to 40ppm, and drawn from a combination of first-fill American whiskey casks, second-fill American whiskey casks and second-fill French wine casks.
OMAR Cask Strength Sherry Cask. An incredibly complex whisky considering it’s only been maturing (albeit in Taiwan’s climate) for 5 years.
OMAR SingleMalt Whisky Sherry Cask. Nantou is the other distillery in Taiwan. Built in 2008 by the state, Omar single malt was launched in 2015. This is the bottling aged in sherry cask, resulting in a full-bodied and intense whisky with notes of caramel, toast, dried fruit and a hint of smoke.
OMAR Cask Strength Bourbon Cask an incredibly complex whisky considering it’s only been maturing (albeit in Taiwan’s climate) for 5 years.
OMAR Single Malt Whisky Bourbon comes from the Taiwanese state-owned Nantou distillery. Aged entirely in ex-bourbon casks, this is medium bodied with an oily texture and notes of vanilla and mandarin.

Comparing Octomore 11.1 and 11.3 gives one of our finest lessons in stratospheric smoke and barley terroir. While both editions are malted to a Brobdingnagian 100+PPM reading, the differences in barley character from the respective growing region is ever present. Our Octomore Islay barley is grown each year by friend and farmer James Brown, on Octomore farm itself. It is harvested, malted and distilled separately, even from our other Islay barley harvests, in order to become a single field, single vintage single malt.
OBAN Little Bay. Bold and complex. This whisky boasts luscious notes of christmas pudding, citrus, and spice, with a dark-chocolate finish.
