Ardmore Legacy (1x 70cl)

Guided by the majestic golden eagle that glides high above the distillery as protector and protagonist, The Ardmore is a peated single malt whisky shaped by its deep rooted connection to the land, people and wildlife of its Scottish Highland home. Why not allow your spirits to soar with The Ardmore?

The Ardmore distillery sits at the highest point of the Northern railway line, 600 feet above sea level. Close to the small village of Kennethmont, the proximity to the railway line allowed founder Adam Teacher to transport materials from Glasgow to this remote corner of Aberdeenshire, helping the distillery flourish. Almost unchanged from the moment he made his dream a reality, the water is still drawn from the naturally rising springs that sit on the 1,500 foot tall Knockandy Hill. It is said that those who live on the rugged fringes of the Highlands embrace the freedom of the great outdoors and The Ardmore brings together the power of nature in every drop.

The Ardmore Legacy celebrates this distillery’s unique location on the fringes of the Highlands, offering a lightly peated liquid that is sweet and uplifting. The gentle flavour fully captures the essence of this spirit’s stunning Highland home. The Ardmore Legacy will appeal to experienced peated malt drinkers and newcomers, alike.

It has a light golden colour. The aromas are of heather honey with hints of cinnamon and toffee bonbon as well as very subtle hints of peat smoke. On the palate, creamy vanilla spice gives way to more overt smoky charcoal notes, especially with the addition of water. Smoke doesn’t dominate and is balanced by the sweet honey and spice flavours. The Ardmore Legacy is full bodied, has a silky mouth feel with a dry, tangy and lingering aftertaste, coupled with delicious spice notes.

Arran 10 Year Old (1 x 70cl)

Great malt whisky is a distillation of the place where it’s made. The local water, microclimate and air quality all influence the spirit as it’s distilled and matured. Isle of Arran whisky couldn’t come from anywhere else but this wee island, of twenty miles by ten. This whisky is the island, bottled. This geography is key to the character of Arran whisky. Here they make a spirit that reflects a range of regional influences, yet achieves a rare and unique personality all its own. Rather like the island itself.

This is the classic expression of Arran - the fresh and unique island style is captured beautifully in this 10 Year Old Single Malt.

The Arran 10 Year Old has the colour of ripe golden barley. The initial rush of rich vanilla sweetness on the nose gives way to a touch of cinnamon which adds a spicy edge to the soft and sweet texture. The classic Arran citrus notes have rounded with age and reveal new depths of character against a background of sweet oak. The flavours are of sweetness, apple and citrus.

Arran 18 Year Old (1 x 70cl)

Great malt whisky is a distillation of the place where it’s made. The local water, microclimate and air quality all influence the spirit as it’s distilled and matured. Isle of Arran whisky couldn’t come from anywhere else but this wee islan, of twenty miles by ten. This whisky is the island, bottled. This geography is key to the character of Arran whisky. Here they make a spirit that reflects a range of regional influences, yet achieves a rare and unique personality all its own. Rather like the island itself.

The Arran 18 year-old is a wonderfully balanced expression of The Arran Malt which displays the tremendous depth of character of the Distillery. Caramelised citrus and tropical notes on a background of toasted oak have created an intense, well rounded dram with charm and personality. A balanced mix of our finest aged ex-Sherry and ex-Bourbon Casks, this fully mature expression of The Arran Malt is exceptional.

It has a honeyed gold appearance. The aromas will remind you of baked peaches with syrup and toasted almonds as well as vanilla and light cinnamon spice. The flavours are of sweetness, spice, citrus and baked peaches.

Arran Miniature Malts Gift Tin – 10yo / 12yo / 14yo (3x 5cl)

The Arran distillery is dynamic, doing things the old way. They craft their spirit using traditional methods and a few chosen, pure ingredients, reviving an ancient heritage of whisky-making on the Isle of Arran. They are proud of their heritage, but make distinctively modern whiskies. The Arran distillery's whisky is made largely by hand - with the help of the eye, nose and palate. Master Distiller James MacTaggart has over 40 years experience in whisky making. He leads a team of passionate, skilled people as they nurture their spirit from barley to bottle.

The Isle of Arran Gift Pack features three miniature bottles of their most popular whiskies:

10 Year Old - This whisky's initial appearance is the colour of ripe golden barley. The initial rush of rich aromas of vanilla sweetness give way to a touch of cinnamon adding a spicy edge to the soft and sweet texture. The classic Arran citrus notes have rounded with age and reveal new depths of character against a background of sweet oak. The flavours are of sweetness, with hints of apple and citrus.

12 Year Old - The aromas of this cask strength whisky are sweet, with dried tropical fruits and toasted oak notes. The flavours show a rich side to this malt with dark chocolate and coffee beans, as well as orange zest and roasted almonds when water is added.

14 Year Old - This is sunset copper in colour. The aromas are dominated by dried fruits, vanilla and toffee. With a little water a salty tang appears, with caramelised fruits indicating a depth of flavour to come. On the palate there is sweetness, spice, bitter orange, charred oak, honey, apple and pears.

Arran The Bothy Quarter Cask - Batch 2 (1x 70cl)

Great malt whisky is a distillation of the place where it’s made. The local water, microclimate and air quality all influence the spirit as it’s distilled and matured. Isle of Arran whisky couldn’t come from anywhere else but this wee islan, of twenty miles by ten. This whisky is the island, bottled. This geography is key to the character of Arran whisky. Here they make a spirit that reflects a range of regional influences, yet achieves a rare and unique personality all its own. Rather like the island itself.

The Arran Single Malt selected for The Bothy Batch 2 was initially matured in first-fill ex-Bourbon barrels before being transferred for secondary maturation into smaller casks also made of the finest American oak for a minimum of 18 months. This process produces far greater contact between the whisky & oak and a faster, more intense maturation. 

The end result is a full-bodied expression of The Arran Malt combining power and finesse full of rich vanilla sweetness, with notes of tropical fruit, citrus and toast and bold peppery spice. Bottling at natural Cask Strength without chill-filtration or artificial colouring of any sort presents this whisky in its purest form. 

Small casks would have been a common feature of the Arran whisky trade in the eighteenth & nineteenth centuries as they were easier to handle and transport around the island. With The Bothy they have proudly brought this tradition back to life.

Auchentoshan Three Wood (1x 70cl)

Here are the Auchentoshan team's thoughts on their distillery: "They say where you're from says a lot about who you are. And most Single Malts are from the middle of nowhere. Us? We're different. We were forged in the fires of The Industrial Revolution and the Glaswegian sweat of our forefathers. We've taken the sweat out now. But boy do we still have the spirit. We're part of the city. And the city is part of us. We play hard. And we work even harder. We're not triple distilled because it's tradition. But because that's what it takes to create a delicate flavour unlike any other. Smooth, yet gutsy. Approachable yet deep. Open to newcomers and old friends alike. Just like where we're from."

No other Scottish distillery insists on triple distilling every drop. Auchentoshan new make spirit is the highest distillate of any single malt distillery in Scotland. Because they distil away all the impurities in the liquid, strong notes of fruit and citrus come through. It also makes the spirit more prone to the epic woodiness that comes from the casks in maturation. This makes Auchentoshan the smoothest, most delicate tasting single malt scotch whisky.

This award-winning Auchentoshan has been matured in three different cask types. From American Bourbon to Spanish Oloroso Sherry - and finally Pedro Ximenez Sherry casks - this is a rich, complex whisky with toffee and sherry flavours.

Auchentoshan 3 Wood has a rich golden bronze colour with aromas of blackcurrant, brown sugar, orange plum and raisin. Its flavours are of fruit and syrup with hazelnuts and a hint of cinnamon and lemon. A butterscotch sweetness adds to the overall complexity. The finish is fresh and fruity with long lasting oaky sweetness.

Auchentoshan 3 wood is a fine dram but also lends itself well to cocktails such as an "Old Fashioned". Please click on the blue link below for recipe.

Balblair Highland Malt 2005 (1x 70cl)

Each Balblair Vintage captures the essence of its year in a bottle. They’re only ever selected at the absolute peak of perfection. Handpicked, to represent the very best Balblair Distillery has to offer. You may have noticed that their bottles are not marked with an age statement, but simply with the year that the whisky was laid down. Every cask is regularly sampled, judged and selected by John MacDonald, the distillery manager, to assess its optimum maturation point. It will only ever be bottled at the point when a particular vintage says it’s ready.

Only a handful of American oak, ex-bourbon casks laid down in 2005 were selected by John MacDonald to form this classic Balblair expression. Light, fruity and refreshing, this classic vintage embodies Balblair's house style.

The Balblair 2005 has a light, almost sparkling gold colour. Its aromas are full bodied with the classic aromas of fresh green apples, ground spices and honey. The American oak ex-bourbon barrels used in maturation impart notes of oaky vanilla, leather and oranges with a hint of fragrant cut flowers and smoke. On the palate, Balblair’s signature style of citrus orchards is followed by the intense sweetness of toffee and vanilla. It is rounded off by a deliciously spicy, long finish. This superb dram is bright and full of character, a ray of sunshine in a bottle.

Balvenie Carribean Cask (1x 70cl)

Thanks to natural alchemy and centuries-old craftsmanship, The Balvenie is unique among single malts. Their whisky-making process is dedicated to maintaining the Five Rare Crafts and they are the only distillery in Scotland that still grows its own barley, uses traditional floor maltings and keeps both a coppersmith and a team of coopers on site. And of course, Malt Master David C. Stewart MBE presides over the all-important maturation process. 

The Balvenie Caribbean Cask 14 year old single malt whisky has been matured in traditional oak whisky casks for 14 years, and then ‘finished’ in casks that previously held Caribbean rum. To create the ideal finish Malt Master David C. Stewart MBE filled American oak casks with his own blend of select West Indian rums. When he judged the casks to be ready, the rum was replaced with the 14 year old spirit and the wood was put to work adding the final touches. The result is an exceptional single malt whisky with the traditional smooth, honeyed character of The Balvenie married with notes of toffee and a hint of fruit, with a warm, lingering finish.

The aromas are rich, sweet and creamy toffee on the nose combines with fresh fruit notes. The flavours are perfectly rounded with vanilla and sweet oak notes, in conjunction with a fruity character that develops over time. The finish is soft and lingering.

Benriach 21 Year Old Whisky (1x70cl)

Located in the ‘Heart of Speyside’, BenRiach displays all the traditional charm of a Speyside distillery. Built by John Duff in 1898, BenRiach draws its water from the Burnside springs located underground, deep below the distillery. BenRiach became independent in 2004, having been purchased by The BenRiach Distillery Company Limited. This independent ownership allows them to experiment with several interesting wood finishes and it continues to produce whisky from both peated and non-peated malted barley. The BenRiach portrays its own uniqueness through the particular methods and skills of the men who craft the whisky, the ingredients used, the distinctive copper stills and the high quality casks selected for maturation.

This particular whisky is matured for at least 21 years in a combination of four types of casks: bourbon barrels, virgin oak casks, Pedro Ximenez sherry casks and red wine casks. The whisky from these four woods has then been expertly blended together by BenRiach's Master Blender to create a multi-faceted and superbly balanced malt, with each cask type adding unique notes to the taste experience.

BenRiach 21 year old is a bright autumn gold colour. The aromas are of a ripe summer fruit compote with contrasting candied peel and a warming stem ginger background. On the palate, soft vanilla and cinnamon give way to tangy red fruits and citrus peel. Barley sugars and honeyed malt build into the long, sweet and satisfying finish.

Blanton Original Single Barrel (1x 70cl)

Single Barrel Bourbon started with Blanton’s in 1984. Nearing retirement, Master Distiller Elmer T. Lee was tasked with creating a bourbon of exceptionally high quality. With careful reflection, he recalled the earlier days of his career in the late 1940s when he worked under Colonel Albert B. Blanton. Colonel Blanton was the president of the distillery until 1952. Mr. Lee remembered that when Colonel Blanton would entertain dignitaries and other important guests he would handpick “honey barrels” from the center cut of Warehouse H and have that bourbon bottled one barrel at a time. As a tribute to Colonel Blanton’s old tradition, Elmer T. Lee decided to name this new bourbon “Blanton’s Single Barrel”.    

Taken from the centre-cut or middle sections of the famous Warehouse H, Blanton’s Original Single Barrel was once designated for ambassadors, dignitaries, and Colonel Blanton’s family and friends. Today, everyone has access to the world’s first single barrel bourbon. 

The taste profile is sweet, with notes of citrus and oak. The creamy vanilla nose is teased with caramel and butterscotch, all underscored by familiar baking spices such as clove, nutmeg, or cinnamon.

Blanton’s Original set the standard for single barrel bourbons in 1984. Best served neat or on the rocks. Bottled at 46.5% alcohol by volume. The horse and jockey atop the bottle stoppers are now a recognized trademark of Blanton's Single Barrel Bourbon. The rich heritage and tradition of horses in Kentucky parallel that of bourbon. This is their way of paying homage to this Kentucky heritage.

Bruichladdich Port Charlotte Scottish Barley Heavily Peated (1x 70cl)

At Bruichladdich they believe that  their spirits should have character; an authenticity derived from where they are distilled and the philosophies of those who distil them. There are many attributes the team at Bruichladdich share with their distant Gaelic forefathers: they are stubborn, resolute, self-sufficient, tough, hard-working, enduring, straight-talking, emotional, passionate, philosophical and engaging… perhaps with a certain roguish quality. In summary they are proudly nonconformist, as has always been the way in the Western Isles – Oirthir Gaidheal, the Coast of the Gaels, the land of the outsider.

They passionately believe in terroir – an authenticity of place and provenance, the ultimate in traceability. They seek to produce the most natural, thought-provoking, intellectually stimulating & enjoyable spirits possible. Obsessive? Probably. They pride themselves in being progressive, Hebridean distillers.

Peated to a heavyweight 40ppm, Port Charlotte Scottish Barley is a cuvee crafted from casks hand-picked by master distiller Jim McEwan. It showcases the supreme elegance of this remarkable single malt - a union of the classic floral elegance of Bruichladdich and heavy peat. The texture is extraordinarily rich with a huge depth of character. The smouldering heat of peat fires pulls you into a whirlpool of Islay flavours and aromas but with such finesse that you welcome the storm.
