The Benromach distillery is famous for its traditional style of single malt whisky, with flavours of creme brulee, dried fruit, peppery oak spices and a distinctive, gentle background note of peat smoke uncommonly seen in Speyside whiskies. A characterful and old-school tasting dram that has broad appeal and a serious following around the world.
Crafted from a marriage of fruity Barbadian, full-bodied Guyanese and vibrant Jamaican rums, the Black Tot gets its name from the ration of rum issued daily to sailors of the Royal Navy. This is a rich and complex rum, offering flavours of golden syrup, exotic tropical fruits and a leathery hint. A note of coffee and chocolatey mocha comes through on the palate, with butter toffee and oaky spice. A lingering note of roasted bananas comes through on the finish, ending this rich, fruity and slightly funky rum. A fantastic sipping style or one to enjoy as the star ingredient in cocktails.
A rich, heavily fruity nose (Christmas cake, dates) and palate that has elements of dark chocolate and oak notes, in particular a clove & pepper spice. At 60% this is still a very drinkable dram, but it really opens up and excels with a generous splash of water. A whisky to be played and experimented with, this is a brilliant introduction to the world of cask-strength whiskies.
The McConnell's distillery was originally founded in 1776 in Belfast and is the oldest whisky brand in Northern Ireland. After becoming a household brand around the world, the distillery suffered a devistating fire in 1909 and the effects of the American prohibition forcing its eventual closure. The brand has laid dormant until its revival this year, launching this 5 year old whisky is a blend of Irish malt and grain whisky, matured solely in ex-bourbon casks. This is a classic Irish style, sweet and delicate fruits, wood and spice with vanilla throughout.
Aurora is the second expression to come out of the Wolfburn distillery, founded in 2013 in the sea-side village of Thurso at the very northern edges of mainland Scotland. This new release is matured in a mixture of both American oak and ex-sherry casks, the latter bringing more nutty, orchard fruity flavours to the whisky. The malty, sea-side maritime flavour that comes from slow fermentation and oceanic maturing is there on the nose and finish. A brilliant new release from Wolfburn.
Hailing from one of Scotland's most notherly distilleries, Old Pulteney resides in the old fishing village of Wick. Pulteney's whiskies are known for their gentle honeyed, vanilla sweetness, and a touch of marzipan nuttyness. The distinctive slightly salty tang tells of the distilleries home by the sea. A great introductory dram for those new to whisky.
