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, 15 Y

Cardhu, 15 Y

Speyside

Cardhu comes from one of the oldest of the Speyside distilleries. 2 determined women are largely responsible for its success. Helen Cumming, who founded the distillery with her husband in 1811, can fairly be called the first ‘woman of whisky’, and her daughter-in-law, Elizabeth, became known as the ‘Queen of the Whisky Trade’. Aged for 15 years, this is an expression that was awarded a silver medal at the San Francisco International Wine and Spirit Competition 2014.

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.

The Singleton, 15 Y

The Singleton, 15 Y

Speyside

The Dufftown distillery is located in a small valley, just outside the town of Dufftown. The name comes from the Duff Clan, which used to own the land. During the 'whisky boom' in the nineties of the last century started by Peter Mackenzie and Richard Stackpole. This 15 year old edition is an accessible yet rich and round Speyside Malt. The soft, sweet style and spicy dry finish is due to the aging process in a mix of European and American oak barrels.

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.

Mortlach, 12 Y

Mortlach, 12 Y

Speyside

Mortlach was the first distillery built around the town of Dufftown in 1823. Mortlach uses a special distillation method. When all the distillates of the different spirit stills have been distilled in their own individual way, they are mixed together. The new spirit is then filled for maturation in Sherry, Bourbon and refill casks. This 12-year-old Mortlach Single Malt, which combines both Bourbon and Sherry cask aged whisky, is a success and combines the best of both worlds.

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.

Jameson - Crested Ten

Jameson - Crested Ten

Ireland

The Dublin distillery is now a museum; they are now distilling in Midleton, Cork. This Crested Ten was originated in 1963, when Jameson went to bottle their Whiskey themselves, because other bottlers too often added water to it. It is a traditional blend with a large proportion of Whiskey matured in sherry casks.

Millstone - Peated PX

Netherlands

Zuidam (1975) is one of the last independent Dutch distilleries. When oldest son Patrick starts at the company in the early nineties, a lot changes. Their Single Malt Whisky is released at the beginning of 2007 and when in 2012 a 12 year old version matured on Sherry casks is internationally acclaimed, this is the big breakthrough. Today, various casks are being used for maturing: Sherry and Bourbon casks and casks of new American and French oaks. Everything is still produced here in the same traditional way.

Wales

A award winning Single Malt, not from Scotland, but from South Wales, the village of Penderyn, where the producer of this whiskey produces only 1 barrel a day.

The red dragon on the bottle label is the symbol of Wales dating from the time of the Romans.

Speyside

The Glenfiddich Solera system is unique among Scotch whisky distillers. This 15 year old Single Malt comes from 3 types of barrels, Bourbon, Sherry barrels and new oak, and is 'married' in a large Solera cask, made of pine wood from Oregon. The barrel is always kept half full, so that the quality of the topped whisky remains constant. Before bottling, this beautifully balanced single malt is left to settle in a small 'Solera Tun'.

For ripening, a mix of bourbon and refill sherry casks is used.

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.
