“Top 15 Scotch We Carry that you should try.”
>Stronachie 18yrs Single Malt Scotch
This fabulous recreation of one of Scotland’s closed distilleries is sourced from the unusual and rare Benrinnes Distillery in Speyside. The Morrisons of A.D. Rattray compared samples from the original Stronachie Distillery, distilled in 1904, to the Highland and Speyside’s finest malts until the located a stylistic match. The 18 year is bottled in small batches, using both bourbon hogshead and sherry butts. Benrinnes, sometimes compared to Mortlach, has a very earthy almost herbal side. Truly a great value from A.D. Rattray.
Nose: Strong honey and heather. Intense malt with hints of spice and lemon.
Palate: Full-bodied, robust and oily-smooth. Malted biscuits with rich honey then lingering pepper and spice.
Conclusion: Rich and complex.
>Armorik Single Malt Double Maturation
An innovative malt from this Breton distillery. The whisky is aged first in Breton oak casks before being finished in sherry casks. This whisky has a real marine influence, which no doubt comes from the distillery’s coastal location.
Nose: Fruity and elegant, it shows beautiful notes of citrus and apple, all served with salted butter caramel.
Palate: A fine woodiness changing rapidly to cereals, all with an unsuspected magnitude.
Finish: Hints of heather honey come to the finish supported by the cereals and enjoyable marine notes.
>Amrut Fusion Single Malt Whiskey
Amrut Fusion gets its name from the fact that it uses two barleys: Indian and Scottish – with the latter being peated for good measure. Fusion has been picking up awards ever since it first appeared in 2009, and in 2012 was named the best whisky for a Rob Roy in the Ultimate Cocktail Challenge in New York.
Whisky Bible Awards 2014: 97 Points
Third Finest Whiskey of the World 2010
Nose:- Concentrated floral notes of mint, lavender, jasmine and loam. Brine too.
Palate:- Powerful horse kick of cedar, cloves, cardamon, spiced dark treacle, coriander. Dark chocolate that has a heavy weighting of cocoa.
Finish:- Long lingering flavors of polished mahogany, leather, mouth watering body, red and black licorice, slight anise, pungent cocoa, raisin, Moroccan dates. Rich black coffee.
>Laphroaig Islay Single Malt Triple Wood
Formerly a travel retail exclusive, the popularity of the Triple Wood has led to it being launched into the general market. The whisky starts off maturing in regular bourbon casks, before being moved to Laphroaig’s bespoke quarter casks for a time. The whisky is then finished in Oloroso sherry casks to gently sand off any remaining sharp edges.
IWSC 2012 – Gold Medal – Whisky – Scotch
Nose:- Molasses and oily toffee. Dates, walnuts, notes from the Maker’s Mark barrels (vanilla, toastiness, sweetness etc). We got oodles of butter, zest, cool wood smoke, almond, and passion fruit.
Palate:- Dry and medicinal, with exotic spices, perhaps even some turmeric. The palate is surprisingly savoury at first, with what John described as “dry dampness” (taste and it’ll make sense!) – think musty wood sheds and hints of moist autumnal forest floor. The sherry notes are there too, but rather than being the big Christmas pudding flavour one often expects from Oloroso-aged whisky, we are instead treated to a much more restrained iced fruitcake, graced with hints of Laphroaig’s classic smoke.
Finish:- Oaked. The mustiness carries into the finish, which lasts for a good while, with oily spices and dried fruit.
>Old Malt Cask Brechin Distillery 28yrs Old
Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky. Douglas Laing & Company are independent and family owned Scotch Whisky blenders. This Brechin distilled Highland was bottled in March of 2005. 418 bottles released. Nonchillfiltered. 50% alc./vol.
Nose:- The nose is crisp with excellent depth and clarity. Notes of gentle smoke rise from a lit bundle of hay. A touch of grist and drying grass, a little citric tang provides veritable lucidity. A touch of malt and barley rises.
Palate:- beautifully balanced with notes of freshly cut grass, a touch of fennel and parsley, blossom and rubbed petals with lemon juice and gentle sugars. The wood develops with a very faint nod towards salinity.
Finish:- long with the oak rising to proffer a touch of desiccation.
>Talisker Single Malt Double Matured Distiller’s Edition
The 2000 vintage of Talisker’s ever popular and quite excellent Distillers Edition. Double matured, as are all of the range, with the finish being in Amoroso casks, a sweetened Oloroso sherry, adding some sweet and juicy fruit to Talisker smoke and maritime edge.
Nose: Smoke and spice on the nose with hints of bitter Seville orange marmalade and cracked black pepper. Quite an oily nose.
Palate: Thick, rich fruit notes on the palate. A mix of marmalade and wood smoke meld with allspice linseed oil, cracked black pepper and hints of dried herbs.
Finish: Long spicy finish with black pepper and butterscotch.
Overall: Full-bodied and wonderful rich.
>Lagavulin Islay Single Malt Distiller’s Edition
Bottled in 2012, this 1996 edition of Lagavulin’s Distillers Edition (probably the most sought after in the range) combines the regular rich, peat smoke that the distillery is known for with a finishing period in sweet Pedro Ximenez sherry casks for even more depth of flavour.
Nose: Smoked, woody aromas of truffle oak, allspice and dry hay. A touch of nutmeg, rum and raisin ice cream and prunes.
Palate: Smoked prune juice, porcini mushroom. Christmas Cake, sticking plasters and rum. Chocolate.
Finish: Demerara rum, cocoa powder and black pepper.
Overall: Very rich and beautifully balanced.
>Lagavulin 12yrs Old 2010 Release
Lagavulin 12yo is always one of the most anticipated bottlings in Diageo’s Special Releases. As before, this is a full strength bottling from American oak casks.
Malt Maniacs Awards 2011: Best Natural Cask Award (Daily Drams)
Nose: Spent matches and wood smoke. A big dose of sea spray with hints of malt wine. Lemon zest, lip balm and lemonade. Fresh apple peel and salted butter.
Palate: A medium body with huge peat smoke notes. Dried grass, cocoa and coal tar. Candied lemons, pine oil and manuka honey. Barnyard notes.
Finish: Long, smoky finish with notes of treacle and Black Forest honey.
>Gordon & MacPhail Connoisseurs Choice
Glencadam is located in the Eastern highlands and was briefly mothballed betweem 2000 and 2003. This whisky was distilled in 1990 and bottled in 2009.
Nose: This Glencadam is particularly aromatic with notes of tulips and violets with further notes of basil and oregano.
Palate: The palate is sweet with notes of vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Finish: The finish creamy with notes of mixed spice and rhubarb.
Overall: This is a light whisky which makes for a great pre-dinner drink!
>Dalwhinnie 1992 Distiller’s Edition
This was distilled at Dalwhinnie in 1992, and it’s undergone a finish in Oloroso sherry casks. The result is a beautifully rich whisky with all kinds of thick, syrupy flavours.
Nose: Green and oaky with notes of sweet vanilla, nutmeg and sultana. Hints of redcurrants and barley.
Palate: Hints of bitter oak, creamy malt and custard. Redcurrants and a compote made thereof, a little manuka honey, some charred oak and cinnamon.
Finish: Spicy and very fruity, almost tangy with hints of lavender honey.
>Big Peat Islay Blended Scotch
A big bodied blended malt from Islay. It comprises malt whisky from Coal Ila, Bowmore, Ardbeg and Port Ellen. Big Peat is a great whisky with lots of peaty character.
Nose: Warm slabs of tangy peat. Hints of chocolate, coffee and cedar with spices, walnuts and almond. A touch of cinnamon with oily smoke.
Palate: Simple, easy going, but delicious. Notes of heavy smoke, cut grass, peanut, spices and peat.
Finish: Quite abrupt with cut grass, coastal notes and smoke.
>The Old Malt Cask Dallas Dhu Distillery 28 yrs old.
A pale gold, like a field of young barley at noon on a sunny day. Makes one suspect this was put into a refill bourbon cask for its slow, 28 year development. It grips the glass when swirled in one, with patient rivulets forming and running at a rather slow, sensual speed.
Nose – Apples, lemon, definite alcohol singe, cinnamon, cherry pie
Palate – Surprisingly sweet, oak, spices, full bodied, malty, very different than the nose – loses a lot of the fruit, hides the alcohol well, hint of smoke on the tale
Finish – long, tongue numbing on those spice and smoke notes.
>Caol Ila 1990 McGibbon’s Provenance
Nose of inviting campfire smoke and moss. Palate is that traditional campfire-y Caol Ila smoke. And there’s not a lot else I can say besides that. If you’ve tried some typical Caol Ilas then you’ve had this before, which isn’t to say that it’s bad, because I do like it. It’s a typical, decent, smokey/peaty effort.
