Cragganmore, 12 Y

Cragganmore, 12 Y

Speyside

John Smith, Scotland's most experienced distiller at the time, built the Cragganmore distillery in 1869. The spirit stills, which he designed himself, stand out because of their unusual shape. He himself designed them at the time to produce a lighter end product. The heavier alcohols condense, fall back into the still and do not end up in the final product. This explains the enormous complexity of the Cragganmore malt. Whisky journalists Michael Jackson and Dave Broom both chose Cragganmore as their big favorite in this price range.

Cardhu, 12 Y

Cardhu, 12 Y

Speyside

Cardhu, one of the oldest distilleries in Speyside, was founded in 1811 by farmer John Cumming and his wife Helen. Like many of his contemporaries, Cumming started out as an illicit distiller. Sometime later Cardhu became one of the first officially licensed distilleries in 1823. Currently Cardhu is also known for being the spiritual home of Johnnie Walker. Cardhu produces a typical Speyside Scotch single malt whisky – beautifully balanced and composed.

Glenkinchie, 12 Y

Glenkinchie, 12 Y

Lowland

The distillery was once named Kinchie, but is known as Glenkinchie since 1837, and is situated not far from Edinburgh – resulting in the nickname “The Edinburgh Malt.” Whisky from the Lowland region is known for its light and floral character. After comprehensive testing, the Classic Malts distillers unanimously decided that 2 years of extra aging in American oak gives Glenkinchie a richer profile, without losing its essential Lowland character. This Scotch single malt is also used in many Johnnie Walker whiskies.

Dalwhinnie, 15 Y

Dalwhinnie, 15 Y

Highland

Located 326 metres above sea level, the Dalwhinnie distillery is Scotland's highest distillery. In 1897 the distillery was built under the name Strathspey and in 1905 the name changed to Dalwhinnie. Due to its location, it used to be a resting place for cattle traders. The distillery has undergone little change in the more than 100 years of its existence. Dalwhinnie speaks of "The Gentle Spirit" when one talks about the malt. This 15-year-old Single Malt matured in Bourbon barrels.

Talisker, 10 Y

Talisker, 10 Y

Isle of Skye

Talisker, founded in 1830, is the only distillery on the island of Skye and was founded by the brothers Hugh and Kenneth MacAskill. Although there are occasional slight shifts in emphasis, the connection between peat smoke, maritime influences, sweetness and white pepper remains a golden combination. Since the introduction of the Classic Malts in 1988, Talisker has rightly been a favourite of many, who appreciate this explosive and complex character. For them, this whisky is also known as "The golden spirit of Skye".

Clynelish, 14 Y

Clynelish, 14 Y

Highland

In the north of Scotland, not far from the small town of Brora and coast of the North Sea, stands Clynelish distillery. It was built in 1968 and stands right next to the former Brora distillery – which closed in 1983, but was founded from 1819. Clynelish matures in bourbon casks and is mainly used for blended whiskies. This Scotch single malt is a signature component of Johnnie Walker, 18 Y Gold Label. Only a few percent of production is released as single malt: a robust Highland whisky with a subtle smokiness.

Singleton, 12 Y

Singleton, 12 Y

Speyside

Over half of Scotland’s malt whisky distilleries are found on Speyside, and Dufftown distillery is at the centre of this fertile region, caught between mountains, rivers and sea. It’s situated in the burgh of Dufftown, which has been dubbed the world capital of malt whisky. The unmistakable taste of The Singleton comes from a selection of European oak and American oak casks. It is a rich, smooth single malt and a perfect introduction into Scotch whisky.

Caol Ila, 12 Y

Caol Ila, 12 Y

Islay

Caol Ila was almost completely demolished in 1969 to make room for a newer, more modern distillery, which opened in 1974. The Caol Ila spirit ages almost exclusively in refill casks. This 12-year old Scotch single malt features a powerful flavor profile. On the nose and palate, the complex, smoky character shines. This whisky is at the heart of all Johnnie Walker blends, but also comes highly recommended for whisky drinkers that prefer the iconic Scotch single malts of Islay.

Knockando, 12 Y

Knockando, 12 Y

Speyside

The Knockando distillery (1898) is located on the river Spey. Knockandu does not bottle at a predetermined age, but only when the right maturity has been reached. The distillation date is indicated on the bottle. For the aging process, Bourbon casks and a small proportion of Sherry casks are used. The proportion of Sherry casks is limited so that they do not predominate in the taste. Only natural ingredients are used. The end result is a subtle, fruity single malt that has all the characteristics of the best Speyside malts.

Oban, 14 Y

Oban, 14 Y

Highland

The Oban distillery is located on the west coast of Scotland in an unusual location, both on the coast and in urban areas and is one of the country's smaller distilleries and just as old as the city in which it is located. Because the distillery is sandwiched between other buildings, it has never been modernised. You don't see Oban as a single malt that often, but he has a very high reputation with Connaisseurs. The Oban, 14 Y is part of the Classic Malts by Diageo.

Royal Lochnagar, 12 Y

Royal Lochnagar, 12 Y

Highland

Three years after the construction of the Lochnagar Distillery at the great location at the foot of the Cairngorms Mountains, Queen Victoria moved into the adjacent Balmoral Castle. She visited the distillery. And so it happened that the distillery was given the title of "purveyor to the court". At the end of the 19th century a large part of the whisky was used for the blend Vat 69. Royal Lochnagar was very rare until 1980 and in the 60's it was even the most expensive whisky in Scotland.

Lagavulin, 8 Y

Lagavulin, 8 Y

Islay

The Lagavulin distillery was founded in 1816 and is located on the southern coast of Islay, where the' Lords of the Isles' reigned centuries ago and their fortress kept out strangers. Lagavulin celebrated their 200th anniversary with this Limited Edition, inspired by the visit that Alfred Barnard made to the distillery in 1885, when he tasted a whisky which he considered to be "exceptionally fine". The whisky matured on refill barrels of American oak.

Suntory - Toki

Suntory - Toki

Japan

Suntory is one of Japan’s largest producers of whisky, as they own several different distilleries. The Suntory Toki is one of their new modern releases, and is a blended whisky created from Suntory’s three distilleries: Yamazaki, Hakushu and Chita. It works great as an easy sipping whisky to spend an evening with, but the Suntory Toki also does really well in a highball – a popular combination of whisky and soda that has captured the imagination of Japan.

Knappogue Castle, 12 Y

Knappogue Castle, 12 Y

Ireland

In 1951 Mark Andrews, owner of the Knappogue Castle, bought barrels of whiskey from other distilleries, which he left to mature in sherry barrels. 36 years later it was bottled as 'Knappoque Castle'. His son selects some good barrels from one distillate each year with whiskey expert Jim Murray. Per 'vintage' year the taste and smell can vary because of that. Irish whiskey makers state that no peat fire is used for malting.

The Legend has matured in bourbon barrels and gets a finish on Portuguese Madeira barrels. The end result is soft and spicy with lots of character.

Vink - Triple Wood

The Netherlands

Not your average cask recipe.

Kavalan - Classic Single Malt

Kavalan - Classic Single Malt

Taiwan

From the moment its first whisky was released in 2008, Kavalan has been a major success. One of the highlights in the relatively young history of this Taiwanese distillery came in 2015, when one of its whiskies was awarded the title “World’s Best Single Malt Whisky.” Due to the warmer climate in Taiwan, Kavalan’s whisky matures at a different rate than it would in Scotland. A great example is the distillery’s flagship expression, Kavalan Single Malt. Sometimes ages simply doesn’t matter.

Crown Royal

Crown Royal

Canada

Undoubtedly the most well-known Canadian whisky, Crown Royal is one of the few whisky brands that lives up to its regal name. Crown Royal was first made to commemorate the Canadian tour of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth in 1939. The whisky was served on board the royal train during the tour. Nowadays this Canadian classic is made in Gimli and about 80 percent of the grains (rye, corn and barley) are harvested in nearby provinces. The maturing barrels of Crown Royal experience extreme temperature swings, which adds to the developing character.

Säntis Malt - Sigel

Säntis Malt - Sigel

Switzerland

For a long time, distilling spirits from grain was not allowed in Switzerland. When the ban was finally lifted in 1999, the beer brewers at Brauerei Locher set out to create the first Swiss single malt whisky ever – Säntis Malt was born. The distillery has picked up all kinds of awards since. Not surprisingly, the distillery/brewery is known for using old beer casks for maturation, like it does for its Sigel expression. The result is a wonderfully hoppy whisky that highlights the grains that are at the heart this single malt whisky.

Mackmyra - Svensk Rök

Mackmyra - Svensk Rök

Sweden

Svensk Rök is the first smoked whisky from Sweden and the idea of a group of friends, born on their winter sports holiday. After many study trips to Scotland, they founded the Mackmyra Svensk Whisky Comp in 1999. The malt was dried above a fire of peat and juniper bushes. This gives him tones of juniper and smoke. Now, also Swedish oak barrels are used, which are seared on the inside in order to obtain the sweet aromas of the wood.

Johnnie Walker - Gold Label Reserve

Johnnie Walker - Gold Label Reserve

Blended Scotch Whisky

At the foundation of this whisky, are the notes of Alexander Walker II for a blend that was supposed to be released in 1920 in honor of the 100th anniversary of Johnnie Walker. But the supply of the 15 Scotch single malt, needed for this blend wasn’t available, because of WW II.The same thing happened in the 1950s, when Alexander II's successor created the Extra Special Old Reserve, based on the notes in the notebook. Even then, the aftermath of WW II prevented greater distribution. A little while ago it was decided to finally release this exclusive blend, at the heart of which is Clynelish, a Scotch single malt from the far north of Scotland.
