Over and above our choice for blend of the month, Inverarity have three malts-
Speyside 10 Year Single Malt One of Scotland’s top ten single malts, this Whisky is aged in selected oak casks for ten years.
Islay 10 Year Pure ( Vatted ) Malt From a handful of Islay distilleries.
Ancestral 14 Year Single Malt Dark gold in colour, full bodied and sweet from years of sherry casks.
Well we thought it might be a wee bit difficult in trying to obtain any of the Inverarity range, but, after a wee search through the web we found quite a few suppliers who hold some of these expressions, for example Master of Malt, Loch Fyne Whiskies and Royal Mile Whiskies to name but a few.
We are also sure that if you contact Inverarity direct they will supply you with outlets stocking their products.
This dram has now been put on our list of blends to taste.
As always when you go out and buy a bottle or three remember to tell them that the Whisky Boys recommended it.
