Around Scotland (Standard)

Auchentoshan 12 year old (Lowland)

This Scotch is triple distilled then matured over twelve years in ex-bourbon barrels.

There is a distinctive aroma of crème brulee with a burst of citrus and the signature green leafiness you would expect from this whiskey. It is smooth on the palate with hints of tangerine and lime characteristics with a slightly gingery and dry finish and a pleasant lingering nuttiness.

 

Glenmorangie 10 year old (Highland) 

The original expression of this elegant floral spirit. This 10 year old single malt is produced by marrying the delicate spirit that emerges from Scotland’s tallest still, with first and second fill American white oak casks.

The scent of citrus and ripening peaches is softened by the aroma of vanilla, you will then first taste a hint of vanilla on the tongue before it ripples along the palate bringing a burst of flowery fruitiness. On the finish you are left with a clean and crisp orange and peach notes.

 

 

The Glenlivet 12 year old (Speyside)

Representing The Glenlivet’s signature style, this classic malt is first matured in traditional oak, before spending sometime in American oak casks which imparts notes of vanilla and gives the whisky it’s distinctive smoothness.

A fruity and summery nose with a well balanced and fruity flavour with strong pineapple notes. A long and creamy finish with juicy lingering citrus notes.

 

Springbank 10 year old (Cambeltown) 

Blended from a mixture of bourbon and sherry casks the colour of this malt belies the richness of character.

The nose has a wide range of aromas, from citrus fruits to pears and a hint of peat, while the palate shows touches of smoke, vanilla essence, nutmeg, cinnamon and the salty tang characteristic of the distillery.

 

Talisker 10 year old (Isle of Skye)

Talisker is the oldest single malt scotch whisky made by the sea on the shores of the Isle of Skye, one of the most remote, rugged yet beautiful landscapes in Scotland.

Powerful peat smoke with salt water aromas with a touch of sweetness. Underneath Talisker’s smoke is a sweet pear quality. Notes of heather, moor, sweet seaweed and a huge, long warming peppery finish.

 

Laphroaig 10 year old (Islay)

This is probably one of Scotland’s most characterful drams. Laphroaig are well known for their distinctive, medicinal malts.

Big, smoky, peat-filled aromas with spices, liquorice and salt notes of Iodine and cool wood (classic of this particular whisky). The palate is seaweed led, with a hint of vanilla ice cream and more notes of TCP. The oak is big with upsurges of spices such as cardamom, chilli and black pepper. The finish is big and drying with an iodine complexity.
