Glenlivet, 21 Y - Archive

Glenlivet, 21 Y - Archive

Speyside

In the valley (Glen) of the river Livet lies a famous Scottish distillery, The Glenlivet. Founded in 1824 by the illustrious George Smith in 1824. In' The Archive' -the best place in their warehouse- the most special barrels are kept. The current Distillery Manager, Alan Winchester, thinks his Whisky is best when it matures for about 21 years. That's why he sometimes takes a few 21-year-old barrels out of his' Archive' and makes this limited edition of it.

GlenDronach, 21 Y - Parliament

GlenDronach, 21 Y - Parliament

Highland

Glendronach (1826) is an example of a distillery, which, from the first opening onward, experienced only closures and reopenings. As Whisky quickly became more popular, Glendronach still remained a big unknown in the world for a long time. But nowadays, Glendronach can rejoice in a great popularity, especially amoung lovers of sherry cask-matured Speyside Whisky. This beautiful 21 year old has matured on Oloroso and Pedro Ximenez sherry casks.

Glenrothes, 18 Y

Glenrothes, 18 Y

Speyside

Glenrothes calls it the Four Corners – meaning the foundation upon which Glenrothes single malt is built. Water is one of the Corners, as is slow distillation. The latter eliminates impurities and allows for a lighter and fruitier spirit. Sherry-seasoned casks impart a unique depth of flavor to the maturation process. Finally, the color of Glenrothes is never altered, always kept in its natural state. Together these Four Corners form the basis of the Glenrothes 18 Y, one of the distilleries’ newest expressions, matured in first-fill sherry-seasoned casks.

Dalmore, 18 Y

Dalmore, 18 Y

Highland

Dalmore (1839) is now one of the classics of Whisky. The distillery is located in the Northern Highlands and overlooks the sea. Dalmore has received a lot of attention, because they occasionally release very expensive and very old bottlings. This 18 year old has matured for 14 years on bourbon barrels and then another 4 years on Matusalem Oloroso sherry casks. This makes it a perfect example of Dalmore's class.

The Benriach, 25 Y

The Benriach, 25 Y

Speyside

Benriach, founded in 1898 in the heart of the Speyside, has experienced a lot. 2 years after its establishment, the distillery closed again. Benriach was not put back into production until 1965. Until 2004, with intermediate stops, neighbour Longmorn occasionally distilled at Benriach to keep the distillery from being dilapidated. The distillery was then taken over and brought fully into production. This Benriach matured 25 years in a mix of bourbon, Oloroso sherry and new American barrels.

Jura, 21 Y

Jura, 21 Y

Isle of Jura

Next to Islay is the island of Jura. The Isle of Jura distillery has been here since 1810. The water used by Jura comes from a nearby lake, the 'Loch a' Bhaile-Mhargaidh'. This water is peat-containing, which gives the whisky a light earthy taste. The malt for the whisky is not peated, but dried with hot air. This 21 year old, like all Jura Whisky, has matured on bourbon casks, but exceptionally got a finish on old Oloroso sherry casks.

Ledaig - Sherry Finish, 1996

Ledaig - Sherry Finish, 1996

Island

Ledaig is produced by the only distillery on the island of Mull, the Tobermory Distillery, which also has the Tobermory Single Malt range. Half of the whisky produced here is very peaty and is sold as 'Ledaig Single Malt'. For this whisky, they used Refill, sherry and bourbon casks. Unlike Tobermory, Ledaig has a much higher peat content. This Ledaig 1996 got a finish in Oloroso Sherry casks, resulting in a beautiful whisky with a mixture of smoky, spicy and sweet tones.

Talisker, 25 Y

Talisker, 25 Y

Isle of Skye

Talisker, the only distillery on the island of Skye, was founded in 1810. In terms of location, by the sea on a mountain slope, it is really a picture-perfect. After a major reconstruction in 1997, it became a modern computer-controlled distillery on the inside. As far as Whisky is concerned, little has changed; this is still a powerful, complex Malt. This 25-year-old Talisker has matured on oak barrels; what kind of barrels exactly is a carefully kept secret.

Laphroaig, 18 Y

Laphroaig, 18 Y

Islay

Laphroaig is supposed to have been founded in 1815 by the brothers Alex and Donald Johnston. The distillery is located on the south coast of Islay, near the port town of Port Ellen. In the last century it was a Whisky that mainly went to blenders, but since the nineties Laphroaig gained popularity very quickly as a single malt. The peated malt is 20% sourced from the own malt floors, the rest from the Port Ellen malt
house. This Whisky, firmly peated Whisky has had a full aging on bourbon barrels.

Mortlach, 15 Y

Mortlach, 15 Y

Speyside

The whisky of Mortlach Distillery goes for 99.9% to Johnnie Walker blends. Occasionally, you encounter a Mortlach in an independent bottling. For a few years now, very occasionally, they release Single Malt themselves. Usually, Sherry casks are used for aging the Single Malt. However, this Carn Mor has aged on bourbon barrels. This gives the whisky vanilla tones with fruit and herbs. A great example of how Mortlach can be; firm and complex.

Caol Ila, 18 Y

Caol Ila, 18 Y

Islay

Located on the Isle of Islay, Caol Ila is known for its heavily peated whisky. The distillery was originally founded in 1846, but the old distillery was demolished in the early 1970s and a new, much larger version of Caol Ila was built. To this day, Caol Ila is the largest producer of Scotch single malt whisky on Islay. The Caol Ila, 18 Y is an elegant whisky. The extra years of aging in oak casks has mellowed the impact of the peat, turning it into a very mature Islay whisky with lots of interesting subtleties.

Octomore - 09.1

Octomore - 09.1

Islay

Octomore 9.1 is one of the smokiest, peatiest whiskies in the world. While only 5 years of age, this Scotch single malt demonstrates the importance of high-quality ingredients and careful distillation. The Octomore 9.1, which matured in top-tier ex-American whiskey casks, is evidence that older is not always better.
