Ardbeg Auriverdes
700ml 49.90%
Ardbeg Day 2014 Release It's all about football but the dram is highly intriguing. Fuller notes to follow...but in the meantime here's some official notes, "The casks are American white oak ex-Bourbon barrels, which were shipped over from the United States as per the norm. The insides of the barrels had therefore been charred in the traditional, Bourbon specification manner. From Caskstrength.com, "Nose: Hot, with some distinct Ardbeg smokiness (sweet cure bacon), alongside a little dry spiciness, a big waft of vanilla pipe tobacco, expresso coffee, a touch of ginger and an injection of some lighter citrus zest - fresh lemon and lime. It's powerful, but with a light touch alongside - think Didier Drogba... Palate: More classic Ardbeg fullness, the smoke turning a little more medicinal, with greener notes (fresh orchard fruit) and something a little more savoury - sweet potato perhaps? There is a youthful zestiness at play too but the mouthfeel is superb, with more smoked meat, vanilla and a candied sweetness - the 10 year old is a good reference point, but it has a little more depth alongside. Finish: Surprisingly dry, with a lingering oaky spice, some sooty residue and a last-gasp citrus bite."

Lagavulin 1997 15yo Distillers Edition
700ml 43.00%
One of TOWC's favourite, if not well trusted malts for the last 15 or so years. For me the perfect combo of smoke and sherried fruit. Classic big, heavy weight and full on smoky Lagavulin 16yo that's had further matured in ex PX sherry casks. The end result is a melange of big, fat, sweet tasting spirit along with with plenty of smoke and that lush Christmas cake fruit flavours. Magic stuff.

Cadenhead Single Cask Highland Park 1996 20yo
700ml 50.60%
A somewhat curious HP as they notes don't really mention the classic peat/honey combo that HP used to bang on about. I've seen modern versions, very similar to this one. Distilled 1996, bottled 2016, ex Bourbon cask, out-turn: 258 bottles. From Mr Cadenhead, Mark Watt, "A little lemon, vanilla, lots of cream, apple crumble, icing sugar and pear tart...a very coastal finish."

Talisker 10yo
700ml 45.80%
Mmmmm..love that pungent scents of the sea, the big whiff of white pepper, the salty tang at the back and that classic mouthwatering finish. Love it! Buxton's 101.

Glengyle Kilkerran Work In Progress 2 Grey Label 6yo
700ml 46.00%
The feints of the 1st edition have gone and now this malt is starting to blossom. The length and zestiness bordering on salty of this mat is amazing and do like the crisp maltiness mid palate. Can't wait for the next one! From the distillery, "Nose: Light and fragrant, the nose leads you into the dram gently. Refreshing lemon citrus, hints of pear and just a dash of sherbet. Palate: Masses of sweet vanilla immediately take over the taste buds before the classic Campbeltown salt hits the tongue. Creamy toffee and butterscotch become apparent as the natural oils coat the mouth. Finish: gentle smoke comes from deep in the throat followed up by very pleasant ground spices".

Springbank 18yo
700ml 46.00%
Medium to full bodied style, matured in both ex sherry (80%) and ex bourbon casks. Only 7800 bottles produced and now generally in short supply worldwide! This malt is all about precision & refinement...nothing is out of place: from the restrained nose of fruit cake with marzipan and a hint of pine smoke to the very long, lightly peated, crisply malty & fruity palate & dry smokey finish, this malt hums. And keeps on humming for quite some time. Tasting notes from the distillery as well: Nose: Full of authority. Rich and creamy at first, the nose develops to reveal vanilla, ripe fruits and marzipan before hints of sherbet, almonds and strawberries tempt you onwards to the first mouthful. Palate: A classic full-bodied dram. Thick and oily in texture with an extremely fruity and mellow taste which gives way to a sweet liquorice and aniseed flavour as it opens up. Hints of liquorice and aniseed. Finish: Sweet and chocolaty with some coconut, the finish is long and consistent with a pleasant smokey tingle.

Springbank Campbeltown Malts Tasting Pack 3 x
200ml 46.00%
GIFT Brand spanking new for 2013! Three new releases from Springbank Distillers presented in a schmick 3 x 200ml gift pack. . For this year, the pack comprises the triple distilled, no peat, florally yet deceptively rich Hazelburn 12yo, the now classically salty flagship, Springbank 10yo along with the richly smoky Longrow NAS, believed to be the fab CV.

Glendronach 14yo Marsala Cask Finish
700ml 46.00%
New one for May 2107, take the much loved 12yo and then re-mature it in Italian Marsala (ie fortified wine) casks. Bright, breezy and fruity but still those classic hallmarks of Glendronach's richness.

Glendronach 18yo Allardice
700ml 46.00%
On top of the belting 15yo Revival comes this recent 2016 bottling of a full on Oloroso matured Speysider. The name refers to the founder of Glendronach. From the distillery, "Appearance: Bright deep gold with a tawny centre. Nose: Sweet aromatics of fudge and muscovado sugar. Fruit compote and glacier morello cherries provide added complexity. Palate: Rich dark and seductive. Remarkable flavours of stewed fruits and all-spice marry together with classical aged Oloroso and toasted walnut bread and chocolate orange. Conclusions: Tremendously complex and long".

Glenfarclas 25yo
700ml 43.00%
Another classic sherry monster from the good folks at Glenfarclas. In their words, "Nose: Complex, yet refined, delicately peated, with fresh tempting aromas of marmalade, honey, freshly ground coffee, sherry and nuts. Some oaky tannins. Flavour: Full-bodied and robust, the sherry and the oak fight for your attention yet neither is overpowering. A powerful nutty smokiness. Finish: Intense, long lasting, dry smoky and malty. A beautiful dark Belgium chocolate taste at the back of your mouth to complete the flavour of the 25 Years Old. Comment: A great after-dinner whisky so rich and full that it is a dessert in itself, with a finish that goes on forever. " July 2105 notes from the Big G, "Old school,yet spicy and bright. Massively long and wide palate."

Glenlivet 15yo Single Cask Edition Morinsh
700ml 56.30%
Well, wonders never cease! I normally have little to do with the whiskies of George & JG Smith, but a limited edition of 270 bottles (those so well used words) did catch my attention, mainly because it is at cask strength. From WhiskyNick, it appears that this dram is an exclusive bottling for an Aussie retailer, it’s all bourbon oak, to which he describes it as classic Glenlivet at full strength. I thought “classic Glenlivet” had a tad of sherry oak in it. I have heard described as, “bold, honey and ripe pears, rich, luxurious dark chocolate and sweet ginger flavours.” Sounds like a sherry cask to me. . My notes to follow shortly.

Dalwhinnie 1997 16yo Distillers Edition
700ml 43.00%
The additional of an extra dose of Oloroso sherry maturation adds a pleasing degree of sweetness & richness to this clean, sweet & subtly peaty �classic� malt.

Deanston 18yo
700ml 46.30%
Wonders never cease! A couple of years back I would not have given you tuppence for the stuff that was coming out of Deanston. Then with new owners, a tasting in Adelaide and meeting the distiller changed my opinion completely. Finally the distillery worked out how to produce a decent and classy whisky. So I was quite excited when this turned up...an aged Deanston! Double distilled, matured in ex bourbon hoggies then top dressed infirst fill bourbon oak and bottled at 46.3% alc. As one retailer put it, "The result is classic, pure, and outstanding. Rich vanilla and malted barley make up the core constituents of flavor, a creamy and supple mouthfeel adds to that delight, and the finish is loaded with oiliness and a lip-smacking note of honey and citrus."

Diageo Classic Malts Strong Tasting Gift Pack 3 x
200ml 42.93%
This is the global drink's giant STRONG pack as it comprises 3 x 200ml bottles of Cragganmore 12yo, Talisker 10 and Lagavulin 16. All contained in a ripper gift pack.

Old Pulteney 12yo
700ml 40.00%
A beaut introduction to this classic salty, seaside malt. Sheery influenced and rated as one of the Ten Best Scotch Whiskies by Charles MacLean for the Independent newspapaer in 2009! "An elegant malt from Wick...this has a lighlty maritime charachter and goes well with fish and seafood". Well said Mr MacLean.

Balblair 10yo 70 Proof
750ml 40.00%
A dram from a bygone era possibly coming from the late 1970's or early 1980's. So a nice chance to taste a piece of classic whisky history,

Cadenhead Single Cask Glen Mhor 1982 34yo
700ml 50.30%
RARE Closed distillery. Another classic that has now long departed. Distilled in 1982, a year before it was closed and bottled in 2016 from an ex Bourbon cask. Out-tun was 126 bottles! Official notes read, "Biscuity notes, apple crumble, pears, old leather, woodiness, brambles and sweet jam."
