A cask strength sherried scotch that delivers on the nice toffee and chocolate notes that we expect from a sherried cask but also it's surprisingly smooth and elegant for its high ABV. A really special dram for those who love sherried whisky.
Classic Islay peated malt that is non-chill filtered and has a higher than normal ABV for a standard expression. The result is a beautifully rich and peaty dram that has a nice sweetness of the front end to balance the overall headiness.
A lovely intermingling of sweetness, peat, and brininess makes this Port Charlotte absolutely irresistible. On the nose one is immediately struck by green apple and peat. On the palate, the fruit shines through with tropical fruits, green apple, and a bit of cocoa nibs. The finish is truly delightful, with the sherry finally coming through with some cigar box, cinnamon and ash.
A balanced, medium weight scotch that has a lovely oiliness on the palate and just the right amount of peat.
The successor to the now-silent Brora, built just opposite. This coastal highland malt exudes nice maritime notes with a nice smokiness. The nose gives way to floral notes as well as sea breezes. On the palate it is rich, yet smooth and gives way to a little honeyed flavor and a small amount of peat. An absolute steal in terms of quality.
Springbank is one of the only family owned Scottish distilleries and handles the production of their whisky from the malting of the barley to the finishing of the spirit. On the nose, lemongrass, seaweed, and hints of peat. On the palate it has a medium weight but with plenty of oil. One can pick out coconut, honeysuckle, and a little lemon peal as well as bacon.
