1 Scotch Single Malt Whisky

This Tasting Contains 6 tubes of the following Whiskies:

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.

Glen Elgin, 12 Y

Glen Elgin, 12 Y

Speyside

Founded at the end of the whisky boom in 1898, Glen Elgin was designed by the distillery architect Charles Doig of Elgin. It is an unusually distinctive Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky from a little known traditional distillery that finds its home 10 miles south of where the river Lossie exits to the sea. A typical Speyside whisky, it’s complex and fragrant. On the palate it is soft and malty, delivering flavours of honey and lightly salted butter on toasted sultana loaf, plus hints of tiramisu. A characteristic heather-honey on the nose leads on to a pleasant malty palate, but never too rich. Sweet to start, then fruity, Glen Elgin whisky is a typical Speyside – complex, fragrant, with a delicious orange blossom finish. Often described as a ‘fruitcake in a bottle’.

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.

2 Scotch Single Malt Whisky 2

This Tasting Contains 6 tubes of the following Whiskies:

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 - Little Bay

Oban - Little Bay

Highland

Nestling beneath the cliff that overlooks Oban, this unusual distillery is just a few short steps from the shore. Unusual in that it is an urban distillery, as well as a seaside one. The first official record of distilling at Oban dates from 1799, and ever since its reputation has kept on growing. Nowadays Oban is one of the smaller distilleries in owner Diageo’s portfolio, but its whisky is anything but. Oban Little Bay is married in Quarter Casks, the smallest casks available at the distillery. The result is remarkable, as it’ll transport you to the Scottish coast.

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.

3 World Whisky

This Tasting Contains 6 tubes of the following Whiskies:

Amrut - Fusion

Amrut - Fusion

India

Indian whisky is conquering the world, and Amrut is the absolute frontrunner, stunning connoisseurs with their exquisite single malt whisky. The warm climate in India is perfectly suited for maturing whisky, of which the Amrut Fusion is an excellent example. The name is apt, because Amrut Fusion is made with barley grown in India, as well as peated barley from Scotland. This single malt is a clever combination of the best both countries have to offer.

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.

Black Velvet - Reserve, 8 Y

Black Velvet - Reserve, 8 Y

Canada

This whisky was first produced in 1951. The brand was known at the time as 'Black Label', but after the first batch was sampled by Jack Napier, it was changed to Black Velvet. The Whisky is known for its velvety smooth taste. Black Velvet has been producing the 'Reserve' since 1991; an 8-year-old Whisky made by mixing the Rye of both aged and non-aged corn after which the mixture matures for 8 years, giving it a nutty and spicy character.

Vink - Triple Wood

Vink - Triple Wood

The Netherlands

Vink Triple Wood is a Dutch whisky founded by the people behind the innovative Kever Genever. Produced at distillery De Tweekoppige Phoenix, Vink Whisky has aged for three to seven years. It’s not a malt whisky. Barley is the dominant grain, but rye, corn and wheat is also used. Vink Whisky matured in a first-fill ex-bourbon casks, a refill bourbon cask that was previously used to mature Scotch whisky and a former Bordeaux red wine cask made from French oak. Not your average cask recipe.

Bulleit - Bourbon

Bulleit - Bourbon

USA

Bulleit Bourbon is a Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey whose high-rye content and iconic frontier inspired bottle is a favourite among bartenders and mixologists across the world. When Tom Bulleit set out to make a bourbon unlike any other, he was inspired by a recipe created by his great-great grandfather Augustus Bulleit more than 175 years ago. Crafted using pure limestone-filtered water and charred American oak barrels for all of the colour and some of the flavour, Bulleit is especially high in rye content, giving it a bold, spicy character with a distinctively smooth, clean finish.

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.

4 Japanese Whisky

This Tasting Contains 6 tubes of the following Whiskies:

Yamazakura - Fine Blended

Yamazakura - Fine Blended

Japan

A blend of four malt and grain whiskies, Yamazakura is brought to market by the Japanese company Sasanokawa Shuzo. ‘Yama’ means ‘mountain’ in Japanese, while ‘sakura’ is a reference to the legendary Japanese cherry tree.

Nikka - Days

Nikka - Days

Japan

Nikka Days is a beautiful blended whisky with a fresh and subtle smoky taste profile. For the blend, single malt whisky from well-known Japanese distilleries such as Miyagikyo and Yoichi was used. Nikka is a legendary whisky producer founded by Masataka Taketsuru, also known as the 'Father of Japanese Whisky'. Nikka Days is a whisky Taketsuru can be proud of!

Togouchi - Single Malt

Togouchi - Single Malt

Japan

Created by master distiller Taihei Yamamoto, this single malt is a marriage from ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks. It was distilled at the Sakurao distillery in the Hiroshima region, which only opened in 2018. The whisky matured in an old railway tunnel nestled in the heart of a forest, repurposed as the warehouse for Togouchi. This dark storage space maintains a cool temperature throughout the four seasons and is an important contributor to the aromas and flavor of Togouchi.

Mars Maltage - Cosmo

Mars Maltage - Cosmo

Japan

Mars Maltago Cosmo is a blended malt, consisting of both Japanese and Scotch whisky. It’s unknown from where the Scotch whiskies are sourced, but the Japanese whisky is produced at Mars Shinshu, a distillery with a decades long history. It lies at an altitude of almost 800 meters in the Japanese Alps. During winter time, temperatures drop to 15 degrees Celsius below zero. Mars Maltage Cosmo is a fine example of how the Japanese search for ultimate balance in their whisky.

Akashi - Blended

Akashi - Blended

Japan

This version of Akashi is specially produced for the European market using a mixture of Japanese and foreign-made malt and grain whisky. Akashi Blended is a product of the White Oak whisky distillery in Akashi. The distillery is operational just 2 months a year, which means that the batches are available in very limited quantities. This blend has been aged for about 5.5 years in oak barrels.

Nikka - Super Nikka

Nikka - Super Nikka

Japan

The Nikka Super Rare Old takes a special place in the line-up of this Japanese whisky brand. It was first created in 1962 by founder Masataka Taketsuru, not long after the death of his Scottish wife Rita, to represent his deep love for her. Without her help he could never have accomplished his dream of making genuine Japanese whisky. A large portion of the Nikka Super Rare Old consists of malt whisky produced at the iconic distilleries Yoichi and Miyagikyo.

5 Irish Whiskey

This Tasting Contains 6 tubes of the following Whiskies:

Proper - No. Twelve

Proper - No. Twelve

Ireland

When it first was released, Conor McGregor’s Proper No. Twelve whiskey sold out in an instant. It is a testament to the attention to detail that was given to the MMA fighter’s whiskey, which is much more than just an attention grab. In a short period of time Proper No. Twelve has already become a staple on the Irish whiskey scene. McGregor partnered with Bushmills distillery and its former manager David Elder. Together they created a triple-distilled, ex-bourbon matured gem of a whiskey, that turned heads the world over.

Irishman - Founders Reserve

Irishman - Founders Reserve

Ireland

The Irishman – Founder’s Reserve is a blend of two singular styles, single malt and single pot still. Single malt whisky is made from malted barley, while for single pot still a percentage of unmalted barley is also added. This may not sound like much of a difference, but it massively influences the taste of whisky. The Founder’s Reserve is triple distilled and matured in ex-bourbon casks. It won a Gold Medal at The International Spirits Challenge in London, and was rated 93 points in Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible.

Connemara - Original

Connemara - Original

Ireland

Connemara is made at Cooley, the 1987 distillery on the east coast of Cooley Peninsula, County Louth, to stop the decline of the Irish Whiskey. Connemara is an ode to the forgotten Whiskey's of Ireland, when the barley was still dried above a peat fire. Connemara is therefore smoky and is the only Irish peated Whiskey. Connemara won the most prizes of all Irish Whiskey's.

Redbreast, 12 Y

Redbreast, 12 Y

Ireland

Redbreast is a Single Malt Pot Still Whiskey; the best Ireland has to offer. This Whiskey is made at Midleton and is considered to be the heart of the blended Jameson Whiskey.

It is the most highly regarded Irish Whiskey worldwide; Redbreast has won many prizes and is very popular among connoisseurs.

Writer’s Tears - Copper Pot

Writer’s Tears - Copper Pot

Ireland

Even though the name might suggest otherwise, no writers were harmed in the making of this whiskey. Instead, the name Writer’s Tears draws inspiration from the many great Irish novelists, poets and playwrights from the 19th century. Writer’s Tears is a brand owned by the Irish Walsh Whiskey Distillery, but the whiskey is likely produced elsewhere. This Copper Pot expression is a marriage of Irish single pot still and Irish single malt whiskey. It’s triple distilled, non-peated and matured in charred American oak bourbon casks.

Roe & Co - Traditional Irish Whiskey

Roe & Co - Traditional Irish Whiskey

Ireland

Roe & Co Irish Whiskey is a new blend named after George Roe, an iconic Irish whiskey maker from the 19th century.

Johnnie Walker, 12 Y - Black Label

Johnnie Walker, 12 Y - Black Label

Blended Scotch Whisky

Back in 1909 the Black Label was still called “Extra Special Old Highland Whisky.” Even then it carried a black and gold label and customers called it “…the one with the black label.” Johnnie Walker Black Label gets its complexity from blending about 40 different malt and grain whiskies from Scotland, some of whisky are smoky. Speyside single malt Cardhu is at the heart of this whisky. Caol Ila from Islay is also represented. All single malts used for this blend are at least 12 years old, and together they combine to form a smooth whisky with rich flavors of malt and peat.

Johnnie Walker - Double Black

Johnnie Walker - Double Black

Blended Scotch Whisky

Double Black is made from Scotch single malt whisky from some of the leading Scotch distilleries. Every single malt matures in its own unique way, depending on the chosen cask, climate and location. It is the craft of the Master Blender to blend these malts into a cohesive whisky with a unique palette of flavors. Master Blender Jim Beveridge: “Double Black was created by building upon the existing Black Label, with enhanced smoky notes, and is aimed at drinkers that want to take their experience another step further.”

Johnnie Walker, 15 Y - Green Label

Johnnie Walker, 15 Y - Green Label

Blended Scotch Whisky

Early on the Walker family started buying distilleries. Especially distilleries in the Scottish Highlands were sought after. Owning distilleries made it possible to guarantee a constant supply of single malt whisky, in order to produce blends of the highest quality. The Highlands scenery is varied, from some of the highest mountains in Scotland to long stretching fields of heather. There’s a large variety of micro-climates. Every Highland single malt has its own character. This Green Label is a blend of 12 leading Scotch single malts from the Highlands, and all are aged for a minimum of 15 years.

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.

Johnnie Walker, 18 Y

Johnnie Walker, 18 Y

Blended Scotch Whisky

While searching the Highlands for the best distilleries, Johnnie Walker encountered de Cardhu distillery in Speyside, where they produce a silky-smooth whisky with a sweet and subtle smoky flavor profile.

It’s an intensely soft and subtly peated blended whisky, made from Scottish single malt and grain whiskies that have aged for at least 18 years.

Johnnie Walker - Blue Label

Johnnie Walker - Blue Label

Blended Scotch Whisky

Johnnie Walker’s flagship whisky! This blend of 16 of the rarest Scotch single malts is an homage to the art of blending, perfected by father John Walker and son Alexander. It is a very limited whisky, which is why every bottle has its own individual number. The whiskies have aged for an exceptional amount of time, often in former sherry casks. Rich malts from the iconic Isle of Islay are at the heart of Johnnie Walker Blue Label. The result is a sublime, smoky and tasty whisky.
