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.

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

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.

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 Glenlivet, 15 Y - French Oak

The Glenlivet, 15 Y - French Oak

Speyside

The Glenlivet 15 Y has its own distinctive character which it gets from a special maturation regime. One of the most popular Scotch single malt whiskies, part of The Glenlivet 15 Y matures in Limousin oak — a type of oak usually reserved for the famous cognacs from France. Because of the low density of the oak the whisky can sink deep into the wood. It gives The Glenlivet 15 Y a pleasant spiciness.

When it first was released, Conor McGregor’s Proper No. Twelve whiskey sold out in an instant.

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.
