Glenfiddich 14 Year Rich Oak
“We bring a completely original finish to single malt Scotch whisky. After 14 years maturing in fine American oak casks, our Malt Master carefully selects virgin Spanish and American oak casks to release extra layers of aroma and flavour into our whisky. With precision timing and handling he allows just the right amount of sweet vanilla, soft toffee, spice and gentle nutty notes to come through. The first virgin American and European oak finished whisky in the world.
A complex harmony of fresh fruits and spices. Initial spicy oak notes follow vibrant vanilla and rich dried fruit. Rich and sweet vanilla with a silky texture and elegant hints of fruit. Deeper and richer with time and a subtle nutty character emerges. Nuttiness develops into a spicy oak finish.” Website
“Colour: Burnished Gold
Nose: Lemon citrus, then orange peel and an interlacing sweetness that softens but doesn’t eliminate the zest. A quiet note of vanilla is followed by dark chocolate with lingering floral and light oak notes.
Palate: Citrus and boiled sweets rule the palate, along with hints of ginger and cinnamon, while soft oak tones reveal toasted apples.
Finish: Medium sweet, malty and slightly dry.” Website
Glenlivet 18 Year
“Over the course of 18 years our Master Distiller, Alan Winchester, takes this expression through a combination of cask types, including both first and second-fill American oak (for tropical fruitiness) and ex-sherry oak (for spicy complexity). The result of this deft navigation of the distilling arts is a gorgeous single malt that is complex, yet elegant and balanced.” Website
Aberlour 10 Year
“Aberlour whiskies still bear the signature of founder James Fleming, a farmer’s son who supplied grain to local distilleries before deciding at the end of the 19th century to make his own Scotches. Aberlour attributes a large part of its success to the quality of the local water, its name evoking the ‘’mouth of the chattering burn’’ near the distillery. The 10 Year-Old is typical of the Speyside with its aromas of dried fruit, spices and honey.” Website
Balvenie 12 Year Double Wood
“The Balvenie DoubleWood is a 12 year old single malt Scotch whisky which gains its distinctive character from being matured in two woods. Over its period of maturation, The Balvenie DoubleWood is transferred from a traditional American oak whisky cask to a Spanish oak cask that has previously held sherry. Each stage lends different qualities to the resulting single malt – the traditional casks, having previously held bourbon, soften and add character, whilst the sherry wood brings depth and fullness of flavour.
Sweet fruit and Oloroso sherry notes, layered with honey and vanilla. A smooth and mellow single malt of beautifully combined flavours, nutty sweetness, cinnamon spices and a delicately proportional layer of sherry with a long finish.” Website
The Glenlivet Archive 21 Year
“Meticulously crafted over its 21 years, this whisky is put through a combination of hand-selected American oak and ex-sherry casks, which impart the distinctive flavour of dried fruits and a bold richness, vibrant intensity and long finish. Each cask is hand-selected and individually nosed and approved, and every batch has its own special nuances, making it a rare and unique liquid indeed.
Aromas are beautifully melted, resonant with dried fruit from the sherry cask, but with spicy hints of cinnamon and ginger. Coloured enticingly of rich amber, with shimmering shades of copper, the finish of this prestigious expression is long and warm.” Website
Glenlivet French Oak Reserve 15 Year
“The 15 Year Old gets its distinctive rich and exotic character from a process of selective maturation in which a proportion of the spirit is matured in French oak casks. In fact, we at The Glenlivet were one of the first to use French oak for making whisky, a technique that has since been imitated the world over.
The Limousin oak we use is cut in France’s Dordogne region, where it’s often used to mature cognacs. Its low density allows whisky to sink deep into the wood, and we carefully control how long the whisky matures in the casks so as not to overpower the desired result: a unique, pleasing spiciness.
This process increases the intensity of the whisky, creating a rich, creamy finish, with buttery notes. The 15 Year Old is deep gold in colour, and leaves behind traces of sweet almond and spice. It’s luxury in a glass.” Website
Tamdhu 10 Year
“Tamdhu 10 Year Old is our signature malt and the first release in our slowly maturing range of exquisite whiskies. Matured exclusively in sherry oak casks, some of the finest in the whisky industry, we ensure every drop is as magnificent now as our 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.” Website
Glenrothes Sherry Cask
“There are many factors we consider in determining an expression worthy of bottling and sharing with you. Of course, we’ve always been proud of the fact that we have our sherry casks made to specification in Jerez, southern Spain even though it costs around five times as much as American ex-bourbon equivalents. Now, we can offer you the chance to sample, without distraction, the unique dried fruit and resinous character that underpins the sherry top notes for which these casks are famed.
With a delicious creamy texture that explodes on the palate, this burnished gold single malt delivers soft, spicy and fruity flavours – ginger, orange peel and sherry oak in perfect harmony. Sheer indulgence.” Website
