Easter-time drams full o' chocolate flavours
Aberlour a'bunadh 60.8%
Aberlour a'bunadh is a natural single cask strength malt whisky. Taken directly from specially selected sherry casks it is bottled as simply as possible without the use of modern filtering methods or the addition of water. This is a dark, strong mega-sherried Aberlour a'bunadh, matured exclusively in Spanish casks that formerly were home to Olor...
BenRiach 35 years old 42.5%
The all-new BenRiach is made from a selection of 'classic' (unpeated) BenRiach spirit, matured for 35 years at this iconic Speyside distillery. Billy Walker, a name known to many as the owner of this distillery and GlenDronach and Glenglassaugh, speaks of traditional old BenRiach aromas such as lush tropical fruit salad, a distinctive herbal ton...
Benromach Hermitage Wood Finish 2005 45%
Intense and juicy summer fruits, pure vanilla and milk chocolate are some of the flavours you may get from this Benromach bottling which has had a rather long finish, 27 months to be precise, in hand-selected red wine casks from the Hermitage appellation of northern Rhone, France.
Bunnahabhain 18 years old 46.3%
The nose on the Bunnahabhain 18 is truly incredible - huge notes of rich honey, nuts, old leather, dried fruits and a hint of sea-side smoke. A distinct umami (the Japanese word for 'savoury', think soy sauce and dried meat) character and a truly to-die-for rich dark chocolate flavour push this whisky in to a league far beyond what its age and p...
Edradour 'Caledonia' 12 years old 46%
Selected by Scottish musician Douglie MacLean, in conjunction with Andrew Symington at Edradour Distillery, this 12 year old Edradour carries rich notes of Oloroso sherry casks, peppermint chocolate creme and a hint of sulphur from the casks. A wee bit gruntier and robust than the standard 10 year old.
GlenDronach 'Allardice' 18 years old 46%
Matured for 18 years in old Spanish Oloroso sherry casks, this whisky has a rich and incredibly complex flavour, with syrupy dark stewed fruit, dark cherries and raisins all carried by a silky smooth mouthfeel that becomes intensely chocolatey, nutty and earthy in the finish. One of Scotland's very finest single malts and a benchmark of the robu...
Glenmorangie Signet 46%
The Signet from Glenmorangie is a fantastic departure from the usually light and delicate spirit, and hails from a time when the maltings were still operational at the distillery. Heavily roasted 'chocolate' malt gives the Signet a rich chocolate / mocha flavour that compliments the candied orange peel, warming spices and plummy, dark fruit flav...
Tobermory 'Old Malt Cask' 1996 / 18 years old 50%
Distilled at the sea-side distillery on the Isle of Mull, this 18 year old Tobermory was bottled from a single cask, selected by one of Scotland's premier independent bottlers, Hunter Laing & Co. At 50% this doesn't need water to be enjoyed, but a few drops can really open the whisky up both on the aroma and palate.
