A litre bottle presented in a golden tin, Aberfeldy 12 is a fruity, clean and polished malt with a touch of honey and spice. An excellent introduction to this Highland distillery. Aberfeldy's main claim to fame is as the heart of the excellent Dewar's blend but whiskies like this are putting it firmly in the spotlight.
The next instalment in JP Wiser's limited release – and aptly-named – Rare Cask series. A rye-forward mash and a 46.1% ABV provide this whisky a thick, punchy profile full of sweet cereal flavours, rich toffee, plenty of oak spice and big clouds of airy vanilla floating overhead.
Mellow richness are derived from this great value dram distilled and blended at the Cameronbridge distillery – the home of Haig.
Big Peat is back with their Christmas edition: a blend of Ardbeg, Caol Ila, Bowmore and Port Ellen. This Islay dram is full of earthy smoke, charcoal and oyster shells with a woody finish.
Founded by Robert Ransom (ex-Glenfarclas) this independent bottling from Highfern is a blend of Highland and Speyside malts. The name is in reference to the ‘Angel’s Share’, an attempt to retain all the liquid lost to the heavens.
Having spent the last two years of its life in a Fino sherry hogshead this whisky is limited to 1710 bottles. A fresh citrus aroma behind notes of mocha and toffee apple. On the palate dark sweet fruits with nuts and toffee.
Italian independent bottlers have released this cask-strength 10-year-old Ledaig expression from the Tobermory distillery, aged in bourbon barrels.
Distilled in 1999 and bottled in 2018, producing 303 bottles using a bourbon hogshead, this is an independent bottling by Valinch & Mallet from Deanston distillery in the Highlands. It is the largest distillery owned by the Distell Group who also own Bunnahabhain and Tobermory.
Distilled in 2008 this whisky spent the last 2 years of its life aging in French brandy casks before being bottled at cask strength. This dram is packed with orchard fruits with an almost grapey backbone behind dried fruits and sweet caramel.
This single cask of sherry-aged whisky promises notes of raisins, dark chocolate and red fruits, underscored with a little smoke.
From the Bladnoch distillery this is a blend of Bladnoch single malt and aged Speyside, Highland and Islay malts with grain whisky that is designed for mixing. Orchard fruits, toffee, sweet spices and a hint of smoke.
Aged in a refill barrel from 1996 until 2018, this Old Particular expression is bottled at 52% ABV and claims to have produced 544 bottles from a single refill barrel.
