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.

The Famous Grouse Blended Scotch Whisky (1x 5cl)

This iconic whisky was created in 1896 by Matthew Gloag. Matthew was born to the trade – his grandfather, also called Matthew, founded the family wine and spirit business in Perth in 1835, and his uncle William started blending whisky in 1860.

Over the years, generations of the Gloag family have worked with expert blenders, stillmen, coopers, merchants and retailers to make this whisky Famous.

Three kinds of cask add character to The Famous Grouse whisky as it is maturing. It’s the magic of the cask that lends The Famous Grouse its unique flavour. The European oak they use in the sherry casks and the American oak in the bourbon ones make sure each dram is full of flavour. Each has its own qualities, and each adds its own subtle shades of character to the whiskies that go into The Famous Grouse. By choosing one over another, they can add a little sweetness, a rich, toasty undertone, or a bright fruity note. Their cask policy is key and one of the ways that they achieve consistent quality with every drop.

These miniatures make fantastic gifts, stocking fillers or wedding favours. For the collectors amongst you these are not the current label, but one from a few years ago. Although our pricing reflects the price of a single miniature, these delightful little bottles come in packs of 12.

Tomintoul 10 Year Old

Tomintoul Distillery is located inside the picturesque Glenlivet estate, within the whisky producing region of Speyside.

The distillery uses traditional techniques that stretch back hundreds of years, to make their award-winning single malt, “the gentle dram”. The natural environment, fresh air and pure water all add to this uniquely smooth and mellow spirit.

Tomintoul 10 Year Old is matured in ex-bourbon casks made from American white oak. There is a beautiful gold colour to this whisky. The aromas include hints of citrus with honey tones and a whiff of mountain heather. The flavours are well rounded with creamy sweetness that is balanced by gently spicy oak. At the finish there is a surge of sweetness that is swiftly pursued by tingling spice.

Tullibardine 228 Burgundy Finish (1x 70cl)

The history of Tullibardine as a location for brewing and distilling dates back to the 15th Century.  The story begins in 1488 when the young King James IV stopped at Tullibardine before his coronation to purchase beer from the local brewery. The brewery which was known for producing fine beer as a result of the local water source was granted a royal charter in 1503. In 1947 William Delmé-Evans began converting the brewery into the Tullibardine Distillery that we know today. He made his decision after testing the water from the nearby springs and discovering it was perfect for distilling whisky.  The water comes from the Ochil Hills and is Drawn from the Danny Burn. (This is the same water source used by Highland Spring for their bottled water.) 

The auburn hue of this whisky comes directly from the time it has spent in 228 litre barriques that held Pinot Noir from Chateau de Chassagne Montrachet. The aromas of the 228 feature red cherries and vanilla with hints of chocolate and Turkish Delight. On the palate there is a good hint of red summer fruit, more chocolate and a sweet spice note on the finish.

anCnoc 12 Year Old (1x 70cl)

The anCnoc is a rather curious whisky. This fine single malt is created using traditional production methods. It's just that they use them to make a refreshingly modern whisky (something that's reflected in the contemporary bottle design and packaging). The end result is a lighter-tasting single malt that doesn't compromise on quality.

The anCnoc 12 year old is renowned the world over. Known as a must-have in any whisky drinker’s collection, it’s light and yet complex. Smooth yet challenging. And each twist and turn delivers a surprise. 

This whisky has a gentle amber colour with a slight yellow hue. The aromas are soft and very aromatic with a hint of honey and lemon in the foreground. The flavours are sweet to start, with an appetising fruitiness and a long smooth finish. It is both light yet complex, smooth yet challenging. This is a dram that has something for everyone.

Antiquary 21 Year Old (1x 70cl)

John & William Hardie began their quest to create the perfect blended Scotch whisky more than 150 years ago. In 1888, using only the finest and rarest malts, they succeeded in creating what was considered to be superior to all other blends; The Antiquary. The name is taken from the famous Gothic novel written by Sir Walter Scott, redolent with family secrets, stories of hidden treasure and hopeless love. Today, the story continues with their range of premium Blended Scotch Whisky which is, quite simply, a cut above.

Matured in specially selected oak casks for over twenty one years, The Antiquary 21 Year Old is a smooth blend of rare distinction, containing only the best Scottish malt and grain whiskies.

Its aromas are fresh and invigorating, very malty sweet – treacle toffee with hints of bitter orange and lemon. The palate is full and smooth with a warming syrupy sweetness, burst of malty flavours. Very long satisfying heather honeyed aftertaste. It has a dry oak spice finish.

£90.00

Ardbeg 10 Year Old (1x 70cl)

Ardbeg has been called “as close to perfection as makes no difference,” by whisky connoisseurs. Proof then, that Ardbeg truly deserves its incredible reputation. It’s a whisky that’s worshipped around the world. Ardbeg is the most phenolic malt in the business, using soft pure water from their own water source plus dedication and passion. Making Ardbeg requires a special kind of chemistry – some would say it's a combination of the process itself and the people who make it. And we'd agree. 

The aromas give a  burst of intense smoky fruit that escapes into the atmosphere of peat infused with zesty lemon and lime, wrapped in waxy dark chocolate. Bold menthol and black pepper slice through the sweet smoke followed by tarry ropes and graphite. Savour the aroma of smoked fish and crispy bacon alongside green bell peppers, baked pineapple and pear juice. Add water and an oceanic minerality brings a breath of cool, briny seaspray. Waxed lemon and lime follows with coal tar soap, beeswax and herby pine woodlands. Toasted vanilla and sizzling cinnamon simmer with warm hazelnut and almond toffee. The flavours begin with an explosion of crackling peat that sets off millions of flavour explosions: peat effervesces with tangy lemon and lime juice, black pepper pops with sizzling cinnamon-spiced toffee. Then comes a wave of brine infused with smooth buttermilk, ripe bananas and currants. Smoke gradually wells up on the palate bringing a mouthful of warm creamy cappuccino and toasted marshmallows. As the taste lengthens and deepens, dry espresso, liquorice root and tarry smoke develop coating the palate with chewy peat oils. The finish goes on and on a long and smoky with tarry espresso, aniseed, toasted almonds and traces of soft barley and fresh pear.

Ardbeg Ten Year Old is revered around the world as the peatiest, smokiest, most complex single malt of them all. Yet it does not flaunt the peat; rather it gives way to the natural sweetness of the malt to produce a whisky of perfect balance.

Ardbeg Uigeadail (1x 70cl)

Ardbeg has been called “as close to perfection as makes no difference,” by whisky connoisseurs. Proof then, that Ardbeg truly deserves its incredible reputation. It’s a whisky that’s worshipped around the world. Ardbeg is the most phenolic malt in the business, using soft pure water from their own water source plus dedication and passion. Making Ardbeg requires a special kind of chemistry – some would say it's a combination of the process itself and the people who make it. And we'd agree. 

In 2009, Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible named Ardbeg Uigeadail ‘World Whisky of the Year’ – in praise of its “utter silky brilliance” and “complexity on a level only a handful of distilleries in the world can even dream of reaching.” It still carries this crown and has become a firm favourite of Arbeg lovers the world over. Pronounced ‘Oog-a-dal’, it’s a special vatting that marries Ardbeg’s traditional deep, smoky notes with luscious, raisiny tones of old ex-Sherry casks.

Ardbed Uigeadail has the deepest gold colour followed by aromas that are rich and weighty with heady and smoky aromatics. At full strength, the initial aroma is a beguiling mix of warm Christmas cake, walnut oil and parma violets fused with fresh ocean spice, cedar and pine needles falling from the Christmas tree. A smouldering coal fire and the scent of well-oiled leather brings warmth. The sweetness of treacle toffees and chocolate-coated raisins emerge through the smoke. With water, the deep smokiness increases in intensity, reminiscent of a fired Christmas pudding. Rich flowering currants and warm baked banana and walnut bread are served with simmering mocha espresso. The flavours are full and rich with a deep mouth-coating texture. The taste is an intriguing balance between sweet, spicy and deep smokiness. The flavour is initially sweet. A burst of winter spices sets off a smoky-spicy explosion countered by a sumptuous mid-palate of honey glazed smoked food and chewy treacle. Waves of deep smoky tones and rich aromas build up on the palate like a fine Montecristo cigar. It is amazingly long and chewy with lingering raisiny, deep mocha tones and rich aromatic smoke into the perfectly integrated finish.

Arran 14 Year Old (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 14 Year Old is a perfectly balanced marriage of both first fill Sherry and Bourbon casks and is a highly rewarding Single Malt with depth of character and zest. It captures perfectly all the fresh character of the Arran 10 year-old with an added layer of intensity and fruitiness.

It has the colour of copper at sunset. The aromas are of dried fruits, vanilla and toffee up front. With a little water, a salty tang appears, with caramelised fruits indicating that there is a depth of flavour to come. The flavours include sweetness, spice, bitter orange, charred oak, honey, apple and pears.

Arran The Bothy Quarter Cask - Batch 1 (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 Bothy is a limited edition of the Arran Malt which pays homage to the use of small casks which would have played a large part in the Arran whisky trade in the 18th & 19th centuries. Matured in First-Fill ex-Bourbon Barrels before being transferred for secondary maturation into smaller quarter casks also made of the finest American oak. Non chill filtered and no artificial colouring, it is bottled at natural cask strength.

A warm and comforting aroma greets the nose. Sandalwood spice and smells of the outdoors; sweet malty barley and damp oak. Aromas of waxy lemons, melting cane sugar and a hint of cocoa promise intense and complex flavours to follow. A luscious, sweet mouthfeel adheres to the palate as a kick of red chilli heat arrives and starts to warm. Distillery character shines as fresh pineapple and green apples with stalks attached come to the fore. Toasted brioche and vanilla ice cream give a round quality to this dram. A floral note at the start of a finish which lingers on the palate as tangy citrus notes develop to make the mouth water, bringing the flavour full circle; inciting another sweet sip.

£55.00
