Old Pulteney 12 Year Old (1x 70cl)

Originating from the remote coastal town of Wick, Old Pulteney’s seafaring spirit runs deep within its soul. Historically, Old Pulteney Single Malt was dispatched by boat and matured in barrels surrounded by the ocean’s spray, giving the whisky its unique taste. Built in 1826, the Pulteney Distillery is rich in history. With traditional warehouses exposed to the invigorating sea air blowing in off the North Sea, Old Pulteney captures the taste of the sea in every drop of its liquid gold. From subtle coastal chords to more defined salty notes, the flavour of our whiskies says much about the role and influence of our home.

Matured wholly in air-dried, hand-selected ex-bourbon casks, the 'unashamedly excellent' Old Pulteney 12 Year Old is the definitive expression in the Old Pulteney family. Traditionally crafted using techniques that other distillers have long abandoned, this winner of numerous gold medals at the most prestigious international competitions is a high water-mark of quality spirits.

Old Pulteney 12 Year Old has a colour of deep amber, is red golden (with a slight pink hue) with a copper glow. The aromas are of medium to high intensity with a briny hint of sea air. The flavours in this whisky are dry, medium bodied and smooth, redolent of honey and cream, faintly salty with a slight spicy note and a sweet long-lasting finish.

Peats Beast Sherry Finish - Cask Strength (1x 70cl)

This edition of Peat's Beast Cask strength has been finished in Pedro Ximénez sherry casks giving it great depth and richness. This is an extremely peaty whisky from an unknown distillery, it's got the rampant smoke you'd expect from a beastly named whisky, as well as a pleasant sherried character.

This comprehensive tasting note by Richard Patterson will give you an insight into the character of this whisky.

Colour - Straw yellow with glittering highlights.

Nose - A rugged fusion of sea spray, bonfire smoke, damp earth and spicy cinnamon immediately arouses the senses. These powerful aromas of peat moss and wet grass must be fully respected before seductive notes of crushed pear, apple and freshly baked bread provide the perfect finish to this memorable melody.

Taste - Strong and bold with plenty of backbone and structure as this great monster unfolds its fiery fangs on your palate. This is not for the faint hearted. Take a generous mouthful with a biting wind blowing furiously in your face. Hold it long in your mouth allow the thick tar, peat smoke and creamy liquorice to penetrate every part of your tongue. Time will tame it.There is indeed unashamed beauty in this beast.

Royal Brackla 12 Year Old (1x 70cl)

Standing on the fertile farmland of the Cawdor Estate, Royal Brackla Distillery was established in 1812 by the fiery Captain William Fraser who returned to the family farm after military service and took advantage of the fine barley it grew. Within 25 years his distillery’s reputation for spirit of sterling taste received its crowning moment when King William IV bestowed ‘Royal’ status to Brackla, in 1835. It thus became the first ever Scotch to garner a royal warrant, a revelation that led to its nickname: ‘The King’s Own Whisky’.

Traditional production techniques help to protect a distilling heritage that spans more than two centuries and preserves the unparalleled quality of a rather special spirit. To allow for the development of intriguing complexity and fruitiness, extra time is taken at the fermentation stage, which acts for up to 80 hours; far longer than most Scottish distilleries. The notably tall stills run at an unusually slow pace. Their height allows plenty of reflux, with the leisurely nature of the operation increasing the contact that the spirit shares with copper, thus filtering out unwanted sulphury notes. Instead, delicate and lightly perfumed notes of grass and green foliage develop, alongside inviting fruity aromas. Crucially, the whisky is finished in premium first-fill sherry casks, enriching it with notes of muscovado sweetness and dates, alongside opulent walnuts.

Stephen Marshall, Bacardi’s Global Marketing Manager – Single Malts says: “This is the one that was described as ‘The Drink Divine’ by the Royal household in the 1830s, that’s no small claim, so we had to take our time and the entire team have done an amazing job that really does justice to Royal Brackla’s incredible heritage.”

The flavours abound with almonds, vine fruits and opulent spices steeped in sherried richness. This is an ennobled nectar, fit for a king.

Shackleton Blended Malt Whisky (1x70cl)

Sir Ernest Shackleton is known as much for his camaraderie and leadership as he is for his adventurous spirit. It was with whisky that Sir Ernest Shackleton brought his crew together to toast wives and sweethearts, celebrate birthdays and above all foster a sense of team spirit that led them to succeed against the hardest of odds. To bolster team spirit on his Antarctic expedition (Nimrod, 1907), Sir Ernest Shackleton personally ordered 25 cases of Mackinlay’s Rare Old Highland Malt Whisky. In 2007, a century after the expedition, three cases of the perfectly preserved whisky were discovered, frozen into the ice beneath Shackleton’s base camp at Cape Royds. The whisky was excavated and flown to New Zealand where it was carefully thawed by the New Zealand Antarctic Heritage Trust in a purpose-built environment and public gallery at Canterbury Museum. After its discovery frozen in the ice, world renowned Master Blender, Richard Paterson, carried out painstaking analysis to re-create this antique whisky, and used this as the foundation to create Shackleton – a modern Blended Malt with ice in its DNA.

Inspired by one of the 20th century’s most charismatic leaders, Shackleton is a modern Scotch that embodies the spirit of a legend. Best enjoyed over ice. Shackleton Blended Malt Scotch is based on the spirit supplied to the 1907 British Antarctic Expedition, expertly crafted using a selection of the finest Highland Single Malt Scotch Whiskies.

The aromas on this whisky are smooth and warming with vanilla, toffee apple, cinnamon and ginger. On the palate you will find dark sugar, sweet dried fruits and glazed pineapple giving it a freshness in addition to its more comforting and rich flavours. The finish is almost like hot mulled wine with praline chocolate and a final whisper of bonfire smoke.

Singleton Of Dufftown 18 Year Old (1 x 70cl)

The Singleton of Dufftown was built during the reign of Queen Victoria. And though the traditional methods, centuries of craft and ancient water source remain, Dufftown – the smoothest of the family of three – is on a mission to create new, great tasting Single Malt Scotch Whiskies that burst with flavour. The 1890s saw a boom in the Scotch whisky trade, and the establishment of this – Dufftown’s sixth distillery at the time – by Peter MacKenzie and Richard Stackpole. The two converted an old saw mill and, despite a few wranglings over the distillery’s water supply, set about producing a whisky so popular that it survived the whisky crash of 1898, the US Prohibition Act of 1920, and thanks to Arthur Bell and Sons, the great depression of the 1930s to become a global brand, known for its accessible, balanced taste. The Singleton of Dufftown is often described as possessing an exceptional smoothness, although the new-make spirit from its three pairs of stills runs spicy in character. Using a combination of American and European Oak casks at roughly a 50/50 split, the finishing rounds off that edge – evoking in some expressions nuttier, cereal notes of this Speysider.

The aromas are soft, inviting, dry and autumnal.  There are nuances of sweet, stewed fruits (apricot preserve), ripe autumn apples and rich berry fruits. Soon, roasted nuts; hazelnut, walnut appear as well as wood scent, dry tea-leaves and fresh-cut pine resin. The fruits soften, revealing rich vanilla and toffee over chocolate and caramel. This smoothness is finely balanced by subtle cereal; neither overpowering, nor cloying. A little water restores the appetising fruit: blackberries, pears in syrup. Vanilla and polished wood too. The palate feels firm but full. Again it is dry and sweet, gently dominated by nuts, dark toffee and gentle mint, before the fruits return as rhubarb and apple juice. Becomes deep and mouth-coating; a hint of almond biscuit, then woody, light spiciness. Late dryness with a rich, silky cocoa bitterness, growing spicy. The fruits darken and run sweetly below. Water cools things; softer and less rich now, dominated by the sweet fruit. Very subtle mint and liquorice toffee notes.

As this is a richer whisky in the Singleton of Dufftown family, it goes well with copious amounts of dark chocolate. This is a Speyside that’s deep but not inaccessible.

Smokehead (1x 70cl)

This is an Islay Single Malt Whisky that’s an assault on your senses. So if you refuse to conform to the rules of normal whisky drinking, and are seeking out something more uncommon, then according to the team that make it: "here’s where that pig-headed inquisitiveness of yours gets rewarded."

Alluringly leftfield, yet enticingly off kilter, Smokehead is custom built for outsiders who will happily walk across fields of burning peat to find something real, something authentic, something unusual. Something that fits them perfectly. Salty and seaweedy, peppery and peaty, smoky and sweet, Smokehead is definitely that. And defiantly not for everyone.

The aroma of something powerful and fiery awaiting you. Thick, heavy woodsmoke. Rich, earthy peat. Extremes of spice and sweetness. Fresh lemon, zesty ginger, rich plum jam. The flavour gives an explosion of breathtaking peppery, peaty heat, soothed by honeyed sweetness, before the smoke comes to the fore again. The finale of this whisky brings exotic spices and a curious citrus tang of mandarin, both lulling you into a false sense of calm as the peat roars back to hit your senses again.

Springbank 21Year Old - Hunter Laing First Editions (1x 70cl)

The First Editions range of single barrel expressions by Hunter Laing are always released at natural cask strength, and of course without colouring or chill filtration.

This was distilled in 1995 and just 160 bottles were filled 21 years later in 2016 by Hunter Laing for The First Editions range.

This Springbank has peppery aromas alongside those of gentle peat smoke and apricot / peach. There is also a hint of the sea. The palate is dry and sweet with oranges, smoke, spicy vanilla and a hint of coconut. The finish is long and dry with oak, smoke, ginger and a maritime spiciness.

Tamdhu Single Malt 10 Year Old (1x 70cl)

In 1897, a group of like-minded entrepreneurs came together with a shared ambition to create the best whisky in the world. No mean feat. They raised today’s equivalent of £20 million and began to make their vision a reality. The best distillery architect and engineer of the day, Charles C Doig, was enlisted. The best location by the banks of the River Spey was acquired. The most advanced techniques were chosen. In 1898 the founders secured their first precious shipment of sherry casks from the finest bodegas in Spain. Now over 100 years later, Tamdhu matures its whisky exclusively in the finest Oloroso sherry casks. Although the casks are exceptionally rare and expensive, they wouldn't change their methods, as they believe it's the only way to create the very best single malt whisky. Although the distillery closed in 2010, in January 2012, the determination of Ian Macleod Distillers saw the Tamdhu Distillery doors open once more. Ian Macleod Distillers have returned the distillery to its former glory, using the same processes and passion for sherry maturation as the founders had before them.

Tamdhu 10 Year Old is matured exclusively in sherry oak casks, the finest in the whisky industry. They take great care to ensure every drop is as magnificent now as the founders envisioned over a century ago. Finally, 10 long years are required to allow these fine casks to do their work, giving Tamdhu its wondrous natural colour and award-winning quality.

On the nose, enjoy the softness of vanilla and sugared almonds, balanced by fresh oak and cinnamon. The palate bursts with fruit and spice – gently revealing toffee and the richness of sherry oak. The taste finishes with a touch of fresh fruit, becoming pleasantly drying – slowly unveiling the wisp of peat smoke.

The Deveron 18 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 aromas are smooth with honey, toffee, dried sherried fruits, nuts and just a hint of oak. The Deveron 18 Year Old is medium bodied and smooth with a honeyed sweetness leading the way, vanilla, a touch of burnt raisins, some ripe plum, nutty, tobacco, some tangy orange and toffee apple, pear, a touch of late black treacle sugar. The finish has honey sugar coated oak notes and a touch of tangy orange which quickly fade leaving a little drying nuttiness.

The Epicurean Lowland Malt, Douglas Laing (1 x 70cl)

Douglas Laing’s The Epicurean Lowland Malt Scotch Whisky tells the story of a 1930s Glasgow man, a real cheeky chappy who was ever the life and soul of the party, and a real connoisseur of fine food and drink. A dram they describe as “city born and bred”, The Epicurean is a blend of some of the finest Lowland Malts; a marriage of the best that the East and the West of Scotland have to offer. This small batch bottling is proudly without colouring or chill-filtration and bottled at 46.2% ABV.

The Epicurean has aromas that are barley-rich, citric, floral and herbal. The mouth-coatingly sweet palate displays crunched sugar, burnt citrus, mixed spices, thyme, peaches and hard candy. This is charmingly underpinned and enriched in the finish with more of that earlier herbal character, in a gristy style with almonds, cut grass and burnt sugar.
