The Exclusive Malts Batch #12

 

Invergordon ’72

43 yr

43 years have passed since this whisky saw the light of day, or at least the inside of a bottle. Those 43 years have been spent well in the wood combining rich and deep flavours of vanilla, fudge and caramel. Savour slowly and enjoy its deliciousness.

Cask type: Refill Barrel

 

 

Glen Moray’07

9 yr

A perfect example of American oak and Scotch whisky in harmony; the creamy, vanilla layers that have been sucked out of the oak combine with a soft and sweet malt flavours. Young Speyside at its very best.

Cask type: First Fill Ex-Bourbon Barrel

 

 

Benrinnes ’95

20 yr

A full-bodied and rich Speyside whisky from the distillery located on the hill that overlooks Dufftown. The whisky is laden with caramel and honey, toffee and sweets (or candy if you prefer). A sweet and spicy finish makes you want to pour another.

Cask type: Refill Hogshead

 

 

Balmenach’03

13 yr

A little known distillery in the Speyside region offering us a glimpse of whisky from this ex-Bourbon barrel. Soft and fruity with a hint of coconut and citrus on the palate and just a touch of vanilla and wafer in the finish.

Cask type: First Fill Ex-Bourbon Barrel

 

 

Caol Ila ’06

10 yr

Caol Ila Distillery is situated near Port Askaig on the North East coast of the Isle of Islay. It is the largest distillery on the Island (which currently boasts 8 distilleries) and is also notable for having no warehouses for its whisky which is taken off the Island for maturation. The whisky is smoky as you would expect with a distinctly toasted malt flavour.

Cask type: Refill Hogshead

Exclusive Blend

’80 35 yr

BLENDED SCOTCH WHISKY Distilled in 1980 Aged for a minimum of 35 years in oak casks

Cask type: Oak Casks

Stirk’s Gin

David Stirk, the man behind our beloved The Exclusive Malts line, is ready to show the world what his Gin is all about: made using the finest botanicals, including juniper and coriander, natural color and full flavor, expect hints of toffee and caramel, touches of vanilla and a sweet oak finish from this grown-up Gin.  It has been created, barrel-finished and bottled with care and attention ensuring that as much flavour is left in as possible. It has not been filtered and may go slightly hazy, but worry not: this a good sign! 

Tomintoul ’06

10 yr

Tomintoul Distillery recently celebrated its 50th birthday having been established in 1964. Its rich and fruity style was instantly a hit with blenders and now with malt whisky drinkers. This whisky was matured in a cask that previously held Sherry and then whisky thus it demonstrates perfectly the distilleries charms.

Cask type: Refill Butt

The Exclusive Malts Batch #13

 

 

Cameronbridge’84

33yr

One of the few remaining grain distilleries, and now better known for being the contents of a rather blue bottle. It is a huge distillery capable of making 140 million litres of alcohol a year. You may have never heard of it, but chances are if you have drunk a white spirit from Scotland you have had some of its output. This whisky has lain in a refill hogshead since 1984 and is grain whisky at its very best. A truly sumptuous dram that has nothing blue about it.

Cask type: Refill Hogshead

 

 

Highland Park’92

25 yr

The island of Orkney is famous for many historical and archaeological reasons but for whisky lovers it’s synonymous with Highland Park Whisky.  Its unique, slightly smoky and heather-rich flavors have long been sought after by the discerning malt drinker.  This cask has slowly matured for 25 years, allowing the true distillery character to shine through. Savour, slowly.

Cask type: Refill Hogshead

 

Clynelish’95

21 yr

There are only two distilleries more north than Clynelish. Built on the site of the old Clynelish Distillery, now known as Brora, the new Clynelish Distillery makes quite a unique malt whisky, highly sought after by those in the “know”. Sweet, malty and waxy distillate has combined with an active cask for the 20 year maturation of this whisky.  The resultant whisky is full-bodied and full-flavored; one for the purists.

Cask type: Refill Hogshead

Glen Elgin’95

21 yr

Glen Elgin is situated a few miles south of the town of the same name. The whisky from the distillery is almost exclusively used for blending, but occasionally the odd cask surfaces and like this one aged for over 20 years, demonstrates why it is so highly sought after by blenders. Being a typical Speyside whisky, this whisky is full of fruits with light spice.

Cask type: Refill Hogshead

Exclusive Blend’93

23 yr

Speyside and Highland Whiskies all distilled in 1993 and aged for a minimum of 23 years in ex-Sherry casks, with a high proportion of Single Malt.

Cask type: Ex-Sherry cask

Non-Chill Filtered, Natural Color

 

The Exclusive Rums

 

 

 

Caroni ’99

17 yr

Established in 1923, Caroni Distillery on the island of Trinidad made a heavy style of rum from sugar cane often supplied to the British navy. Its sale in 2001 to a rival company signalled the demise of the distillery and eventual closure in 2002. Often considered to be one of the finest rum distilleries in recent times.

 

Nicaraguan ’99

17 yr

Distilled at the ‘volcano’ distillery, which is a reference to the locale rather than the distillation techniques, this golden rum has spent 17 long years in a barrel that previously held bourbon whiskey. The result is a rich, obviously sweet, and whiskey-edged rum that will surprise most palates.

The Exclusive Regions

Islay

The Isle of Islay is synonymous with peaty, smoky whiskies.  Using water taken from peaty burns and drying the malt exclusively over a peat fire results in deep, rich smoke flavors.  These casks are for the discerning drinker – of which there are many.

Single Cask, Bottled at 50% ABV
Non-Chill Filtered, Natural Color

 

 

 

Peated Highland

Made using malted barley dried over a peat fire, this whisky represents the historical flavor of Scotch whisky (as all Scotch whisky used to be dried over a peat fire). Whilst not as aggressive as the Islay version, this whisky packs a big flavor and will be a stepping stone for those not used to ‘peaty’ whisky.

Single Cask, Bottled at 50% ABV
Non-Chill Filtered, Natural Color

 

Speyside

The Speyside region is the most densely populated with distilleries. After grain whisky, Speyside malts are the next most used part of the blending industry. These whiskies are not smoky and usually not heavy, although sometimes being matured in an ex-Sherry cask will add the depth.

Single Cask, Bottled at 50% ABV
Non-Chill Filtered, Natural Color

 

 

 

 

Single Grain (Lowland)

Made from wheat in column still, this whisky represents the backbone of the Scotch Whisky industry; the base from which all blends begin. Each cask will demonstrate the sweet and refined nature of grain whisky with candy notes throughout. A real crowd pleaser which will appeal to bourbon drinkers.

Single Cask, Bottled at 50% ABV
Non-Chill Filtered, Natural Color
