Ardmore’ 2000 14 yr
There was a time when all of the malt whisky made in Scotland was made using barley that had been dried over a peat fire meaning the whisky was smoky. Whilst this tradition slowly diminished with the production of coal, there are a few distilleries that continue to produce smoky on the mainland. Ardmore is one such distillery and this heavily peated expression is a real lesson in the history of Scotch whisky.
Bunnahabhain’ 1987 26 yr
This cask from the Bunnahabhain Distillery has been maturing quietly in an oak hogshead for over 26 years. In that time, the oak has given the whisky a golden glow and a rich, dessert-like flavour. Time does not suit all malt whiskies but this cask has matured slowly allowing a gradual depth of flavour. 26 years well spent!
Dalmore’ 1996 18 yr
Dalmore Distillery is situated in the North Highlands on the edge of the Dornoch Firth. It is a rugged area of Scotland, full of mystique and charm yet the people are always warm and friendly. Expect the same from this cask aged 18 years in a refill oak hogshead. It is a rugged whisky, full of Highland charm but very warming.
Exclusive Blend of Malts’94 20 yr
Glenrothes’ 1996 18 yr
Glenrothes Distillery is at the heart of the town with the same name. The whisky has been prized by blenders for over a century and by malt whisky drinkers when they could find it. It is now quite commonly available although single cask bottlings are getting rarer to find. This cask demonstrates all of the reasons that make Glenrothes so prized.
With youth on its side, this cask demonstrates all that is great about heavily-peated Scotch malt whisky. Taken from a distillery not normally associated with peaty whisky, this cask is full of smoke, seaweed and the smells of the Isle of Mull. A brute of a whisky bottled before time dulled its full powers.
Speyside’ 1989 25 yr
This single barrel of malt whisky is taken from a secret distillery in Speyside. Famed for its honey-richness and soft fruits, this cask does not disappoint with an added layer of vanilla in the finish. A classis cask from a classic distillery – sip and savour all of its 25 years.
Bowmore’ 2001 12 yr
The Isle of Islay is famed for its richly-flavoured malt whisky distilleries. The whisky in this bottle was distilled at the Bowmore Distillery, the heart of the Isle of Islay and is a full-bodied, rich and smoky affair having spent 12 years in a refill ex-Sherry butt.
