Auchentoshan, 18 Y

Auchentoshan, 18 Y

Lowland

A 3 times distilled whisky from the Lowlands, near Glasgow. The Auchentoshan distillery was opened in 1825 by Irish refugees, which explains the light character of the whisky. Because Auchentoshan distils 3 times, the spirit has a much higher alcohol content than usual; 81%. By triple distillation, the whisky is also purified. This Auchentoshan has been fully matured on bourbon barrels for 18 years and has therefore acquired a beautiful, deep complexity.

Dubbed ‘The King’s Own Whisky’, this is your chance to drink a single malt deemed fit for royalty! This Royal Brackla matured for 21 years in oak casks and—crucially—was finished in premium first-fill sherry casks. It displays succulent notes of summer berries and dark chocolate.

Bowmore, 18 Y

Bowmore, 18 Y

Islay

The oldest distillery on the island of Islay, founded in 1779. Since the start, smoky, daring Whisky has been made here, 30% of which is still made from their own malt floor. Bowmore has Scotland's oldest warehouse, which is partly below sea level. This makes the barrel maturation balanced and gives the Whisky most of its true Islay character. Due to its age, the smoke is quite mild and the Whisky very complex.

This 18 year old has matured for most of the time on sherry casks. The combination of their own malt, Sherry casks and a very traditional way of working, has made this Whisky a prize winner. According to many lovers the best Whisky in the world.

Knockando, 21 Y

Knockando, 21 Y

Speyside

The Knockando distillery was founded in 1898 and was thoroughly rebuilt in 1968. It is a small traditional distillery, where the Whisky mainly ages on bourbon casks. Only a small part of the product ages on sherry casks. With this 21-year-old, the year of distillation and the year of bottling is on the label. There is no splash of dye in it and the Whisky is completely natural. The addition on the label; 'Master Reserve', tells you that the barrels have been carefully selected.

Amrut - Madeira Finish

Amrut - Madeira Finish

India

Indian whisky is conquering the world, and Amrut is the absolute frontrunner, stunning connoisseurs over and over with their exquisite single malt whisky. The warm climate in India is perfectly suited for maturing whisky, of which the Amrut - Madeira Finish is an excellent example. It aged primarily in ex-bourbon casks before a length finish in ex-Madeira casks from Spain and Portugal. There are only 4,800 bottles available of this first batch, a fantastic whisky.

Kavalan - Solist, Sherry Cask Strength

Kavalan - Solist, Sherry Cask Strength

Taiwan

This very first distillery in Taiwan opened its doors in 2005. Kavalan produces a soft sweet spirit, which matures briefly on sherry and bourbon casks. Because it is quite hot in Taiwan, the Whisky matures very quickly. With 7 years of maturing, this soloist is the oldest Whisky that they release. Up to 15% of the contents evaporate from the cask on an annual basis. This is a so-called Single Barrel bottling; for each batch only 1 Sherry cask is used.

WhistlePig, 12 Y - Rye

Canada

After studying the best techniques of the Old World, particularly Scotch whiskies, Master Distiller Dave Pickerell finished 12-year-old rye in premium European Sauternes, Madeira, and Port wine casks, releasing these single wine barrel finishes individually as the Old World Series in limited quantities. Then, they carefully married the 3 whiskeys into the Old World, highlighting their distinct flavors to create an exceptionally balanced spirit. This ultra-premium straight rye is distinctly American, yet harkens back to its stately Old World roots.

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.

Glen Deveron, 20 Y

Glen Deveron, 20 Y

Highland

Confusingly, when you set out to find a Glen Deveron Distillery, you won’t find one. Instead, Glen Deveron (or The Deveron) is made at Macduff. Both brands are named in reference to the River Deveron, which runs along this distillery located in the northeast of Scotland. For a long time, Macduff anonymously produced single malt whisky, almost everything of it destined for blends. Nowadays some of it turns up as standalone bottlings. This Glen Deveron, 20 Y is an example, and an excellent one at that.

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, 20 Y

Mortlach, 20 Y

Speyside

Nicknamed ‘The Beast of Dufftown’ by famous whisky writer Dave Broom, Mortlach is a whisky that has long been championed by connoisseurs. Finally, the distillery is starting to gain a wider audience. The Mortlach, 20 Y is the oldest whisky in the new range, which was launched in 2018. It matured solely in sherry casks and was named ‘Cowie’s Blue Seal’, after one of the original bottlings of Mortlach dating back to 1909. The Mortlach, 20 Y is balanced and complex – a whisky that deserves your time and attention.

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 - 10.1

Octomore - 10.1

Islay

Octomore is famous for being the smokiest whisky in the world. But focusing on that reputation would sell Octomore short. This brand is made at Bruichladdich, an artisanal distillery on the Isle of Islay. While the Octomore 10.1 is very smoky indeed, there are many more flavors and aromas to discover. This is because of Bruichladdich’s hands-on distillation process and the use of first-fill bourbon casks from a variety of sources like Jim Beam, Heaven Hill, Buffalo Trace and Jack Daniel’s.
