Aged in oak casks for at least sixteen years, this much sought-after single malt has the massive peat-smoke that's typical of southern Islay - but also offering a dryness that turns it into a truly interesting dram.
Single malt Scotch whisky from the Knockando distillery in the prolific Speyside region, aged for a dozen years before being bottled. Interestingly, they seem to have done away with including the vintage for this bottling...
AMESON Black Barrel is an irish whiskey elaborated with a triple distilled, twice charred, for a rich smooth taste.
Charring is an age-old method for invigorating barrels to intensify the taste. Jameson Black Barrel is a tribute to the distillery’s coopers, who painstakingly give their bourbon barrels an additional charring to reveal their untold richness and complexity. Because every barrel contains secrets; the trick is coaxing them out.
Time spent maturing in these barrels leads to intensified aromas of butterscotch, fudge and creamy toffee. Nutty notes are in abundance alongside the smooth sweetness of spice and vanilla.
Finish Jameson Black Barrel, enjoy the richness and intensity of toasted wood and vanilla.
Highland Park's 15 Year Old Viking Heart has been made using predominantly sherry-seasoned European and American casks, as well as a few refill casks, bottled at 44% ABV. Well, I suppose we should say "ceramic decantered" rather than "bottled", really. The decanters were made by Wade Ceramics, and inspired by the earthenware vessels that whisky would have been stored in centuries ago.
VIKING HONOUR reflects the unique culture of our remote island home here on Orkney. Part of Scotland yes, but originally belonging to a vast Viking kingdom. At Highland Park, we honour the spirit of our Viking ancestors, sharing their pride, integrity and fierce independence, and we distill our award-winning whisky to the same exacting standards introduced in 1798 by our founder, Magnus Eunson, a descendant of those early Viking settlers.
GLENROTHES Whisky Maker’s Cut. A rich non-age-statement whisky matured entirely in first-fill sherry casks, with notes of orange, vanilla, nutmeg and oak. It is part of The Soleo Collection: a range of five whiskies from Glenrothes, ranging from 10 to 25 years old, which pay homage to the grapes from which some sherries, such as Pedro Ximénez, are made. The red label on this bottle reflects the colour of the grape just before it begins to ripen.
The Soleo Collection Matured only in sherry seasoned oak casks and bottled at natural colour with a character of vanilla, melon, and cinnamon.
The original expression of our elegant, floral spirit and the real backbone of the Glenmorangie range. A ten-year-old single malt, Glenmorangie Original is produced by marrying the delicate spirit that emerges from Scotland's tallest stills, with first and second fill American white oak casks. It is here, maturing for ten long years in a range of ex-bourbon casks such as our famous slow-grown and air-dried 'designer casks' from Missouri, that our raw spirit develops a perfect balance between sweetness and complexity. Resulting in a mature spirit that is soft, mellow and creamy. Perfect for enjoying at any time.
Rich and full-bodied, our signature expression is first aged in American oak ex-bourbon casks for smoothness. We then finish this single malt whisky in hand-selected Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez sherry casks. Sourced from Jerez in Spain, the sherry casks bring rich raisin intensity, toffee and spices to Glenmorangie's renowned smooth style, enjoyed and awarded across the world.
A perfect balance of oak and sweetness. Lemon zest, toffee apples – and a scent of coconut. Our signature sherry wood brings intensity and richness, while first fill bourbon casks add fresh notes of citrus and vanilla.
We've seen the Revival and the Evolution, and now Glenglassaugh are adding a peated expression to their range. The Torfa (which refers to the Old Norse word for turf or peat) has been matured in ex-bourbon barrels and weighs in at 20 PPM. We love to see that Glenglassaugh is back up and running again after being closed for over 20 years, and they've even got enough momentum to try new things, as this is their first peated single malt Scotch whisky!
GLENGLASSAUGH Revival was mothballed from 1986 until 2008 and this the first whisky to be made from spirit distilled at the distillery since it reopened. It was matured in a mixture of first-fill bourbon casks and red wine casks before a final short finish in first-fill oloroso sherry butts.
It was closed in 1986 but resumed production in 2008. This revival bottling is the first whisky to be made at the distillery since it reopened. Matured in a mixture of first and refill bourbon casks, this was finished for 6 months in first-fill oloroso sherry butts.
The Glenglassaugh distillery launched their Wood Finishes series in late 2017, marking the first time they've ever released cask-finished expressions. Very exciting stuff! This particular bottling was initially aged in bourbon casks before being moved over to Pedro Ximenéz for up to two years.
Col. James Moir founded of Glenglassaugh distillery in 1875. Moreover, this distillery is located at the east end of the beautiful Sandend Bay. He quickly established a reputation for making a quality whisky and the company prospered. He ran the distillery with his two nephews until 1892. However, Highland Distillers purchased the distillery after then. The distillery continued to produce whisky until 1986 when it’s mothballed.
The distillery sat silent for over 20 years. In addition, until a group of investors purchased it and started production again in December 2008. In 2013, the BenRiach Distillery Company took over Glenglassaugh distillery. They have the intention to bring this iconic distillery fully back to life. They gave the investment, commitment and care it deserves. Glenglassaugh uses the highest quality of Scottish barley and traditional distilling methods, our key focus being on quality. While many distilleries have become highly automated. However, in Glenglassaugh, our spirit is still believe in handcraft. We made our whisky by a small, highly skilled team dedicated to creating the highest quality product. We only select the finest casks and slowly mature our precious spirit in our coastal warehouses until it is ready.
