Coopers Choice - Laggan Mill, 8 Y

Coopers Choice - Laggan Mill, 8 Y

Islay

This whisky is an 8 years old, single cask bottling, matured from 2008 to 2016, of which only 400 bottles have been produced. The whisky is bottled by an independent bottler for the Cooper's Choice range. However, where this Laggan Mill comes from is a mystery, but it is said that Lagavullin is the distillery behind this whisky. This is a smooth whisky full of character with a sweet vanilla, fruity approach to a famous distillery. Certainly a must try.

Isle of Jura, 10 Y - Origin

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.

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.

Balvenie, 12 Y - Doublewood

Speyside

This distillery grows its own barley, has its own malt floor, coopers and coppersmith for the care of the casks and boilers and is the longest active malt master in the industry. Balvenie 12 Y DoubleWood is a classic Speyside, matured in bourbon casks for 10 years and finished for 2 years in Oloroso sherry casks. The aging in bourbon casks gives the whisky the traditional smooth flavor and the sherry casks adds the strength and depth of flavor to it.

Islay blend

Big Peat is a blended malt of Islay. Blended from Ardbeg, Bowmore, Caol Ola and Port Ellen (!) malts, this whisky is an absolute winner. We will never know how many Port Ellen is in the bottle, but it brings elegance and balance to the rest of the young malts. Big Peat is bottled in different alcohol contents and certainly if you can lay your hand on a cast strength, immediately open the bottle!

Campbeltown Loch, 5 Y

Campbeltown Loch, 5 Y

Scotland

This whisky is named after the famous Loch near the fishing town of Campbeltown at the tip of the Kintyre peninsula and is a blend of Springbank and Longrow. Both whiskies come from the same stills, from the famous Springbank distillery. The lightly peated Springbank and the heavier peated Longrow together create a special blend; A combination of smoke, fruit, vanilla and herbs. This 5 year old has a value for money that is more than fine!

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.

Old Perth Peated

Old Perth Peated

Scotland

A blend of peated Single malt. There would be 4 different whiskies from the west of Scotland in this blended malt. The vast majority comes from the Tobermory distillery on the island of Mull; in this case their peated whisky, Ledaig. Peated whisky has become very popular, but that's just one of the many reasons for the popularity of this particular whisky. Lots of peat smoke, fruit, especially citrus and some oak. A very beautiful, peated whisky.

Puni - Alba

Italy

After years of contemplation and planning, builder Albrecht Ebensperger quite literally laid the foundation of the first Italian whisky distillery in 2010. This Italian whisky is made with malted wheat, malted barley and malted rye. Alba is Italian for 'dawn', but also means 'Scotland' in Scottish Gaelic. Puni Alba is aged for 3 years in Sicilian Marsala casks before a finishing period in handselected casks that previously held peated whisky from Islay.

Glendalough, 7 Y

Ireland

Glendalough literally means 'valley of 2 lakes'. It is a remote valley on the Irish East Coast, near Wicklow. Glendalough is the first new Irish Craft Distillery, founded in 2014. The label shows St. Kevin, who stayed in the wilderness for 7 years before he died in 617. This is also the reason why their first bottling contains 7 years old Whiskey.

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.

Old Bardstown Estate

Old Bardstown Estate

U.S.A.

Kentucky Bourbon Distillers Ltd. was founded in 1935 as the Willett Distilling Company by father Lambert and son A. L. "Thompson" Willett. In the 1970s, the family switched to producing Ethanol in the 1970s, something that did not work out well because this fuel never really took off. The company continued in the 1980s as a blender until they opened another distillery in 2012. This 10-year-old Old Bardstown is a real Kentucky Straight with a high corn share.

Bunnahabhain - Toiteach

Bunnahabhain - Toiteach

Islay

A special 'un-chill filtered' and 'non colored' variation of the famous Bunnahabhain Islay malt whiskies. Through a special distillation process a slight "touch" of smoky notes will go along with the grain. The big difference with the other distilleries on Islay is that Bunnahabhain does not dry the malt with peat but with hot air. Thus this Islay malt is not smoky or peaty. For ripening, a mix of bourbon and refill sherry casks is used.
