Bowmore, 12 Y

Bowmore, 12 Y

Islay

The Bowmore Distillery is located on the Scottish island of Islay. Because the distillery is located below sea level it has ideal conditions for maturation of whisky in re-fill-, sherry and bourbon casks. The water for the production comes from rainwater from the hills, flowing over the peat soil. Islay malts are famous for their peaty, smoky flavor and this 12 years matured Bowmore is no exception.

Springbank, 10 Y

Springbank, 10 Y

Campbeltown

When Archibald Mitchell founded the Springbank distillery in 1828, there were more than 30 distilleries in Campbeltown. Now there are only 3. Springbank is still owned by the Mitchell family, which still works very traditionally. They malt all the barley themselves and drying the malt is still done on a peat fire. The whisky is distilled 2.5 times; something very different. This softly peated Springbank is matured in bourbon and sherry casks.

Jura - Origin, 10 Y

Jura - Origin, 10 Y

Isle of Jura

Next to Islay is the island of Jura. The Isle of Jura distillery has been here since 1810. On the island live 200 people and 5000 deer. The water used by Jura comes from a lake nearby, the "Loch a' Bhaile-Mhargaidh". This water is peat-containing and gives the whisky a light soily taste. The malt for the whisky is not peated, but dried with hot air. This 10-year-old Jura has matured on bourbon casks and is firm and floral.

Cardhu, 12 Y

Cardhu, 12 Y

Speyside

This Cardhu is commonly seen as a female whisky. Makes sense, if you know that Cardhu had a lady in charge for many years. In 1885 Elizabeth Cumming took charge of the distillery, built in 1824. Cardhu is located in the middle of the Speyside, high in Mannoch Hills and overlooks the River Spey. Cardhu still makes a silky, accessible whisky. Only refill barrels are used for aging, in order not to increase the impact of the wood. The Cardhu whisky is highly recognizable by the graceful bottle, complete with a beechwood cap.

Clynelish, 14 Y

Clynelish, 14 Y

Highlands

In 1968, in the north of Scotland, at Brora on the North Sea coast, the Clynelish distillery was built. It was built next to the old Brora distillery (1819) which was closed forever in 1983. Clynelish is a typical production distillery, built to make Whisky for the blends of Johnnie Walker and others. A small portion is destined for Single Malt and matures on bourbon caks. This is a robust Highland Whisky with light smoke tones.

Laphroaig - Quarter Cask

Laphroaig - Quarter Cask

Islay

This is a single malt whisky from Islay. Because in the smaller 125 liter 'Quarter Casks', the spirit has about 30% more contact with the wood during maturation than with standard casks, this process is much more intensive. The additional influence of the oak gives a softer, sweeter character to the flavor, beautifully combining with the Laphroaig characteristic peat smoke.

Ardmore - Tradition

Ardmore - Tradition

Speyside

Ardmore is an under-appreciated malt, because production is focussed on making whisky to blend in Teacher’s and other blends. The peat is sourced on the Scottish mainland and so differs in composition from the more familiar Islays. A bit grassy on the nose with pleasing hints of smoke, Tradition is richer on the palate with coffee, licorice and citrus notes over hot spices and muted but ever-present peatiness.

Glenfiddich, 12 Y

Glenfiddich, 12 Y

Speyside

The distillery, founded in 1886 by William Grant, is located on the river Fiddich. The company is still in the hands of the Grant family; now the 5th generation.

Knockando, 12 Y

Knockando, 12 Y

Speyside

Knockando is a completely natural product without any artificial coloring. The distillery is located in Speyside and uses mostly ex-bourbon casks and Sherry casks for the maturation. Unlike other single malts, the whisky of Knockando is not bottled at a predetermined age, but only when it has matured enough and is at it's best potential.

Royal Brackla 2001 14 Y

Royal Brackla 2001 14 Y

Highland

A Royal Distillery, started in 1812, which was awarded the title "Royal" of King William IV in 1835. Their nickname became the "Kings own whisky". He is soft and fruity, making him very suitable for blenders, which causes Brackla to mostly end up in the blends of Dewar's. However, nowadays Brackla also has 3 Single Malts of their own on the market; a 12-, 16- and 21-year-old. This 2001 aged on hogsheads for 14 years and has a very soft and fruity character with hints of grass. A fresh complex whisky. A Royal Dram.

Old Pulteney, 12 Y

Highlands

Fully matured in air-dried, specially selected old bourbon casks, this whisky is still made according to the same artisan, traditional techniques that many other distilleries have abandoned long ago. This winner of several gold medals at several prestigious international competitions is an established name in quality whiskies.

Ledaig, 10 Y

Islands

This whisky is aged 10 years in oak barrels in ancient cellars, without any outside influence. The Lochan source, high in the mountains, makes for particularly aromatic water. Along with malted barley, which is specially dried with peat, the result is this smoky, peaty single malt.

Power’s John’s Lane, 12 Y

Power’s John’s Lane, 12 Y

Penderyn - Legend

Penderyn - Legend

Wales

Somewhere in the late nineties, a group of friends were sitting in a pub somewhere in Wales. They openly dreamt about building a Whisky distillery. And after a lot of effort, it was ready in 2004. After more than a hundred years Wales had a distillery; The Penderyn. They make Whisky of excellent quality on a small scale. 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.

Tobermory 2008

Tobermory 2008

Island

This distillery, founded in 1798, is located at Tobermory Bay on the island of Mull and has a rugged history of closures, in between serving as a cheese storage and even as a power plant. In recent years, they produce 2 different whiskies; the unpeated Tobermory and the peated variant, Ledaig. An independent bottled Tobermory is not often encountered. This one aged on bourbon barrels, resulting in tones of candy and fruit like grapefruit, cherries and toffee apples. The hint of vanilla and light tones of oak provide a very interesting whisky.

Auchentoshan - Heartwood

Auchentoshan - Heartwood

Lowlands

A 3 times distilled whisky, as it is a lowlander! The Auchentoshan Distillery was opened in 1825 by Irish refugees, which probably explains the light character. This Heartwood is named after the heart of the oak tree. The wood therefore plays an important role in this whisky. Aged on firmly roasted bourbon and Spanish Oloroso sherry barrels, it is a mix of 2 worlds. The whisky is soft, has citrus and the bitter of the wood comes back well. A true homage to the oak tree.

AnCnoc - Black Hill Reserve

Highland

Highland Park, 12 Y

Highland Park, 12 Y

Orkney

Founded in 1798 by a direct descendant of the Vikings, Magnus Eunson. Highland Park is Scotland's most northern distillery and still has its own malt floors, where 25% of the malt comes from. This 12 year old has for the most part matured on sherry casks. The combination of own malt, sherry casks and a very traditional way of working have made this Whisky a prize winner. A lightly smoky, spicy and fruity whisky.

Arran, 10 Y

Arran, 10 Y

Island

The distillery uses unpeated malt in the production process. Therefore the Arran whiskies do not have the typical smoky flavor, like other Island whiskies. This 10 year matured malt is presented as Arran's base-malt with age indication. It is a classic Arran with the known characteristics of this distillery; soft sweet, fresh and fruity with delicate notes of barley.

Bunnahabhain - Cruach Mhòna

Bunnahabhain - Cruach Mhòna

Islay

Cruach Mhòna is Celtic and means 'drying pile of peat'. And boy, can you taste this! Bunnahabhain is the only distillery on Islay that makes mostly unpeated whisky. Since 1997, they also produce peated whisky for a few months a year. This Cruach Mhòna is a great example. Sturdy peat smoke, as if you are near a burning peat stove, a hint of toasted bread and herbs. Pepper and licorice with fruit somewhere in the background. In short, if you are a lover of peated whisky, this one is well recommended.
