Glenmorangie's Lasanta sees their 'original' single malt filled in to ex-sherry casks from the sun scorched plains of Jerez de la Frontera in southern Spain for an additional two years of extra maturation. These casks add warmth, dried fruit and nutty flavours to the classic honeyed tones of the distillery
Ardbeg 'An Oa' is the latest release from the iconic Ardbeg distillery on Islay, named after the southern point of the island known as the Mull of Oa (pronounced 'oh'). A creation of three different cask types that are married in a new 'gathering' vat which allows these flavours to mellow and mingle. The aroma is classic Ardbeg - sooty, ashy peat smoke wrapped in a lush sweetness, joined by spices and sea-spray. The palate is sweet and heavy with an oily mouthfeel, followed by rich peat smoke and hints of dark chocolate bitterness in the finish. A welcome new addition to the permanent Ardbeg range - gather 'round and get to know An Oa.
The Arran Barrel Reserve is a new expression from this West-coast Scottish distillery, carefully selected from a small number of barrels that show its classic style - wonderfully fruity, honeyed and with a lush vanilla scent and flavour.
The Glenlivet's 12 year old single malt, one of the most famous whiskies in the world, indtroducing many to the joys of Scotch whisky. It has a soft, fruity nose with notes of vanilla and sweet spice, leading onto the palate with more fruit flavours including green apple and pineapple. One of the truly iconic whiskies of the world.
A classic Speyside dram, Aberlour 12 is a vatting of ex-Sherry and ex-Bourbon casks. It carries notes of dried fruit (juicy raisins and sultanas) and vanilla toffee, leading into a slightly spicy and lingering finish. A very worthwhile replacement to the 10 years old.
A stalwart from Speyside, the Balvenie distillery is just next door to Glenfiddich and is known for its custardy, creamy style of whisky. This 'Doublewood' expression is a combination of two cask types, American oak and Spanish sherry casks. Sherry and honey mingle together along with dried fruits, Christmas spices and baking green apples. A classic expression of Scotland's famous Speyside region.
Situated just outside of Huntly in the highlands of Scotland, the GlenDronach distillery has since 1826 produced a style of whisky that is renowned for its rich, heavy character. Notes of dried fruit (raisins, sultanas) followed by a big dollop of heavy toffee and sherry lead into hints of dark chocolate/cocoa. A perfect introduction to the distilleries more intense whiskies (the 18 and 21 year old) or heavily sherried drams in general. The GlenDronach 12 is one of the best value for money whiskies that we stock, punching far above its weight.
Distilled at the most northerly distillery in Scotland, Highland Park remains one of the best examples of the Island style. Notes of heather honey sweetness are joined with a malty flavour and exotic stewed fruits. A thread of heather-tinged peat smoke and a lip-smacking salinity cuts through in the finish. A true Scottish classic.
