Scapa Skiren (1x 70cl)

Scapa is an artisanal single malt forged by the extreme elements of Orkney. Tempests rage and rain fills their lochs and flows everywhere. Water from the Orquil Springs is used for the mashing and the rugged climate means less spirit is lost to evaporation, the legendary Angel’s Share which normally claims 2% of every batch. Scapa is crafted by a small team of 5 dedicated artisans and a Master Distiller, using traditional methods perfected over generations. This is one of the last remaining manually operated distilleries, that is manned 24 hours a day.

The team at Scapa Distillery call Skiren the honeyed tropical one because of its smooth, creamy sweetness with a hint of tropical fruit, citrus and coastal heather. It is exclusively matured in first-fill American Oak Casks, selected by Scapa artisans. 

The aromas include delicate scented floral notes with a hint of fresh pear. There are also sweet and fruity pineapple notes with a citrus tang. The taste is smooth and sweet, with ripe honeydew melon slices, bursts of fruity pear and lemon sherbet. The finish is long, refreshing, shimmering sweetness.

Speyside Distillery SPEY 12 Year Old (1x 70cl)

In 1770, John & Robert Harvey, they founders of Speyside Distillery began their whisky journey by firstly founding Yorker distillery then subsequently Dundashill and Bruichladdich distilleries.  Lord Byron, in celebration of his wedding in 1815 sent gifts to his wedding guests including King George III, a cask of scotch whisky thought to be SPEY Single Malt.

Speyside Distillery, nestled within the magnificent Cairngorm Mountains is widely acknowledged by many as being the prettiest of all Scotland’s distilleries. Originally a barley mill and croft dating back to the 1700’s, it finally closed in 1965. Over the next 25 years from 1965 it was slowly and lovingly converted into a single malt distillery, which then started producing spirit on Christmas Day 1990. The distillery draws it’s water from the Spey River tributary. The River Tromie using the old mill lade, which originally ran the waterwheel that powered the old mill. The old mill and water wheel were retained and are still in working order.

This is a classic 12 Year Old Speyside, which has spent most of its life ageing in Bourbon casks. This bottling has spent 6 months in new oak from specially reconditioned barrels. The new oak lends colour and flavours of oak and vanilla to give a smooth and rounded dram typical from its region of production. The rich gold colour of this Speyside malt whisky promises much. Pear drops and green apples characterise the initial impact of this whisky. Vanilla follows together with hints of nuts and raisins. This whisky has a long finish, which is fresh and clean. A great whisky for any time of the day.

Springbank 10 Year Old (1x 70cl)

Springbank distillery is located in Campbeltown, a picturesque Scottish town situated at the southern end of the Kintyre Peninsula on the glorious west coast. Dividing the Firth of Clyde and the Atlantic Ocean, a sea breeze swirls around the air and a soft Scottish misty glow travels through the town that is rich in heritage, and of course, rich in whisky history. Springbank was established in 1828 on the site of Archibald Mitchell’s illicit still. The distillery is now in the hands of the current Chairman, Hedley G. Wright, Mitchell’s great, great grandson – he is the fifth generation of the Mitchell family to own and manage Springbank. Being based in Campbeltown, the once proclaimed ‘whisky capital of the world’, it is no surprise that many of the methods established by their forefathers are still applied in the distillery today.

This 10-year-old offers whisky drinkers the perfect introduction to the Springbank range. Matured in a combination of bourbon and sherry casks, it is perfectly balanced from the first sip through to the full, rich finish. It has aromas of orchard fruit (pear) with a hint of peat, vanilla and malt. The palate has hints of malt, oak, spice, nutmeg and cinnamon, vanilla essence. The finish is sweet, with a lingering salty tingle.

Strathisla 12 Year Old (1x 70cl)

Originally established in 1786, just a stone’s throw from the ruins of Milton Castle. Milton Distillery, as it was originally known, was a small concern and took all its water from the nearby Broomhill Spring. It is interesting to note that although the Distillery was known as Milton, the malt whisky was always sold as “Strathisla”. Strathisla is reputedly the oldest working distillery in the Scottish Highlands. Located in the Speyside region of Scotland, Strathisla Single Malt is at the heart of each and every Chivas Regal blend. A tremendously picturesque distillery, Strathisla proves that beauty really isn't skin deep. Beneath the iconic twin pagodas, the copper stills have a distinctive shape that determines the unique character of every drop of Strathisla whisky. A signature richness, fruity and full-bodied. Such are the stills importance in maintaining the absolute continuity of flavour, should any replacements be needed in the future, the exact replicas would need to be just that exact, dents, creases and all. It is this micro attention to detail that ensures Strathisla Single Malt is preserved for generations to come. Maintaining this unwavering attention to exquisite quality over time hasn't always been plain sailing. Strathisla has witnessed its fair share of drama over the years, with a fire in 1876 and an explosion in the malt mill in 1879.

During the Second World War, the Distillery fell into hands of a group of London black marketeers who proceeded to sell off the stock the stock of whisky at a huge profit and allowed the Distillery to fall into disrepair. After an investigation by the Inland Revenue, the Company was found to owe a large sum in unpaid excise duty and was placed in the hands of the receivers. Chivas Brothers rescued the Distillery in 1950 by purchasing it and set about restoring it to its former glory. At this time the name of the Distillery was changed from Milton to “Strathisla”.

The nose has malt and hay notes, with richness and fruitiness as well as a dry oakiness. The flavours are fruity, nutty and malty. This is a traditional Speyside style with rich Christmas cake sweetness and spice augmented by a whiff of smoke.

Talisker 10 Years Old (1x 70cl)

One of the Classic Malts; Talisker 10 is a fuggy peaty dream punctuated with incisive pepper spice. The ten year old remains as expressive as Talisker gets.

Talisker Storm (1x 70cl)

Talisker is the oldest Single Malt Scotch Whisky made by the sea on the shores of the Isle of Skye, one of the most remote, rugged, yet beautiful landscapes in Scotland. Few whiskies tell the story of their origin better than Talisker. Its smell and taste instantly connect the drinker with the rugged environment – like a warm welcome from a wild sea. It’s a powerhouse; challenging but adored; once discovered rarely left.

Talisker Storm offers the drinker Talisker’s full maritime majesty, all unfettered elemental power and confidence. It is an intensely dark, smoky, more brooding Talisker with swirling notes of wood, brine and spice that puts you right at the heart of a storm at sea.

Powerful, fresh-clean and growing in complexity like a gathering storm to reveal a sweet maltiness with ripe red berry fruit. Eventually well integrated mellow smoke drifts across the scene as a wild sea turns up briny, fresh clean notes, and an oily explosion of pepper. At first mellow and rich in the mouth then quickly very spicy and increasingly stormy as the Talisker heat comes through. It’s as if the pure, tongue-coating sweetness joins hands with a deep nutty smokiness to embrace those spicier notes. The flavour is elegantly drawn out with a good balance between sweetness, smoke and salt, which is all the more evident when a little water is added.

Savour Talisker Storm's peppery sweet and salty flavours neat, or draw them out with a little water. When it comes to Talisker you can’t go past smoked salmon, the two are made for each other.

The Deveron 12 Year Old - Highland (1x 70cl)

Located where the river meets the sea, Macduff distillery sits near the mouth of the River Deveron, shortly before its cool waters join the restless surge of the North Sea. Sheltered from the worst of the seaboard storms and winter winds, this tranquil spot has seen the creation of The Deveron malt whisky for many a decade. A comparatively modern distillery – its spirit first began to flow in 1960 – Macduff was brought into being mainly for the purpose of supplying malt whisky to the blending industry. It was commissioned by a consortium of four businessmen, who called themselves Glen Deveron Distillers Ltd. Emanating from five small copper pot stills, and unusual horizontal condensers that gently coax extra character from the spirit, The Deveron is an approachable dram which has a tang of coastal air about it. The distillery is set up for a light, fruity spirit that’s replete with apple tones and nutty notes.

Stephen Marshall, Bacardi’s Global Marketing Manager – Single Malts remarks: “People underestimate the quality of whisky that can be made at a comparatively modern distillery, this is really top notch stuff. Get yourself up to Macduff, or if you can’t then stick Local Hero on the telly and pour yourself a dram”.

The essence of The Deveron 12 Year Old as described by the good folk at Bacardi: "When billows break and haar ghosts in, then haste ye home or some bit warm, Unwind with toasted grain and apples, seaborne spice; calm from the storm." In summary, this whisky has warm and fragrant aromas of toasted grains intermingling with baked apples; a subtle vanilla sweetness and delicate floral notes.

Tomatin 12 Year Old (1x 70cl)

Whisky production has been central to the way of life in this area most probably since the 15th when drovers would stop to fill their ram’s horns at the still of the old laird’s house.  This house was part of the Tomatin estate and located where the modern day Distillery stands.  1897. The first formal distillery on the site was established in 1897. The settlement of Tomatin was formed as result of the wealth created by the distillery. Around 80% of their employees still live on site in the distillery houses, so working at Tomatin is more than just a job for their employees; it is a way of life. This in turn is reflected in the quality of whisky produced; every bottle of whisky they make is distilled with pride.

The smooth, rounded hills sheltering the Tomatin Distillery reflect the softer side of nature in this quiet corner of the Highlands. Here, bubbling pure spring water, tender barley and gentle patience all go into creating an incredibly soft Highland whisky. A whisky which is as easy to enjoy as it is hard to forget.

Tomatin describe their whisky perfectly: "Since 1897 there has been a quiet revolution unfolding in the heart of the Scottish Highlands. In this idyllic spot, the naturally soft water of the Allt na Frith burn is introduced to tender Scottish barley. Later, from the tall, slim copper stills of the Tomatin Distillery a mellow, fruity spirit is born. You have heard the myths of this often wild and beautiful place. Now hear the truth: there is a softer side to the Highlands. There is Tomatin."  

The Tomatin 12 Year Old is smooth and silky, having been matured in traditional Scotch Whisky, ex-Bourbon and ex-Spanish Sherry casks. A rich, fruity aroma is the prelude to sweet flavours of ripe apples, pears and a subtle hint of nut before the long, pleasantly oily finish.

The Tomatin 14 Year Old is soft, smooth and sweet, benefiting from its time spent in Tawny Port casks which previously held port for around 50 years. Rich but balanced aromas of red berries, sweet honey and rich toffee develop into aspects of light fruits and nuts on the palate and an abiding finish of smooth fruit salad.

Tomatin Cu Bocan Single Cask Release (1x 70cl)

During the last week of every year, Tomatin Distillery use lightly peated barley to produce their Cù Bòcan whisky.  This spirit is filled into 1st fill ex-Bourbon, ex-Sherry and Virgin Oak casks.

"Why 'Cù Bòcan'?" we hear you ask...

Cù Bòcan has stalked residents of the remote Highland village of Tomatin for centuries, his legend embellished by the hound's increasingly fractious behaviour. Sightings are rare, once in a generation, but are always terrifying. A distillery worker, out walking late, was once relentlessly pursued by an imposing black beast, steam spiralling from flared nostrils, teeth bared. Compelled beyond all natural reason to feel the hound's dense fur he stopped and reached out, hand trembling, only to see the ghostly spectre - Cù Bòcan - dissolve before his eyes leaving nothing but a vacuum of deathly silence and an inky blue cloud of smoke, soon spirited away across the peat moorland… 

The legend of  Cù Bòcan lives on in this lightly peated single malt Scotch Whisky from Tomatin Distillery. 

You are initially hit with aromas of coconuts and cream with some botanic notes, parsley and coriander. The smoke emerges after a minute, but only drifting past the nose. There is a mesmeric mix of lime, grapefruit and tangerines with rich almond and aniseed. The palate is initially feather light, followed by a honeyed smoke; toasted almonds. The rich spice of cloves, cinnamon and star anise create an enigmatic elegance. Imagine a café latte with fresh chocolate shavings. The finish is light with a hint of sweet smoke.
