The Tullibardine 15 Year Old has arrived! The Highland distillery reopened in 2003, and this is one of the most well-aged releases to date. Seeing as it was matured entirely in first-fill bourbon casks, there's lots of creamy, honeyed influence to be found in this one.
When Tomatin Distillery was established in 1897, the isolated and idyllic setting of Tomatin was almost perfect. However there wasn’t a local workforce; the local inhabitants were scattered shepherds and cattle drovers. The company began a project of construction to accommodate its workforce. Since that time the distillery has been at the heart of the community and the community at the heart of the distillery. This legacy has continued and Tomatin remains one of the few distilleries to provide a home for its dedicated craftsmen.
The English Smokey Single Malt Whisky. Introducing a peated expression to their already fine range, the English Whisky Company have pulled another future classic out of the bag. As the name suggests this is a superbly smoky malt, evident from the first sip to the lingering aftertaste with hints of ginger and vanilla completing the flavour.
Another wonderful release from the East Anglian distillery, the first dedicated English malt distillery for over 100 years. The distillery first decided to produce peated whisky after taking advice from Laphroaig’s Ian Henderson. This whisky certainly packs a peaty punch, being peated to a whopping 45ppm. Unlike the Original, it uses malt bought in from Scotland, as local maltings do not have the facilities for peating the grain. It does remain un-chill-filtered, and without colouring. This is a delectable whisky, with delicate spice notes of ginger, cardamom and aniseed alongside a powerful peat flavour. Something very different, yet delicious!
The English Original Single Malt Whisky.
The Nelstrop family has a 600-year tradition of growing and processing grain. In 2005 the family decided to build a distillery and make its own whisky, this would be England’s first whisky distillery in over 100 years. The best barley is grown in Norfolk and the Breckland water is peerless. In December 2006, the distillery was able to make the first 29 barrels of English whisky and the following year HRH Prince Charles officially opened the distillery. The English Whisky Company distills four days a week, for 44 weeks of the year, which produces around 150,000 bottles of whisky.
Awards. In 2015 The English Whisky Co. was awarded 2 Great Taste Gold Awards for its Chapter 15 and Nelstrop’s PX. It has also been awarded 15 Liquid Gold awards by Jim Murray as well as being named as producer of European Whisky of the Year 2015.
Light, fresh and fragrant. Sweet, soft, slightly spicy and welcoming. Gentle vanilla, fruity with hints of tropical fruits (lime zest, mango, dried apricots). Fresh cut grass. Slightly nutty with a hint of marzipan. Like a soft whipped vanilla ice cream. Melts on the palate. Smooth but with a with a slight peppery spice tingle. Fresh wood and vanilla, again with tropical fruits. Slightly nutty with a long malty finish. Finish is clean, dry and slightly salty.
Talisker Storm was released in early 2013 as a no age statement whisky, which was matured in specifically selected refill and toasted American oak casks. An intense and vibrant dram, the Storm offers up plenty of distillery character alongside some smokier depth and complexity.
With a classic Talisker profile, a depth of beautiful flavours and a very reasonable price point, this is an ideal single malt for those thinking of exploring the island whisky category.
An award-winning whisky with wonderful sweetness and warmth, intertwined with just a thread of smoke. Rich and soft but still assertive.
The classic stalwart of the Talisker family. The perfect companion for when the day is done, smooth, smoky with a comforting afterglow.
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
This 21 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky amplifies The Singleton’s signature richness, in a harmony of rich fruits and silky toffee notes forged by our Trinity Harmony Philosophy. Three different cask styles have been united to create a Single Malt even greater than the sum of its parts. Maureen and her team painstakingly hand-selected and then harmonised slow crafted whiskies from Pedro Ximenez Oloroso seasoned casks and Refill Ex-Bourbon casks, which had been resting in our private reserves for over two decades, then masterfully marrying the final liquid in European Oak casks. The richness of these whiskies was given greater depth as layers of flavour were enhanced by this third expertly chosen cask. It is a labour of love celebrating different whisky characters transformed by aging and oak, then skillfully unified in a symphony for the senses unlike any other.
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.
