Lessons in the Dram

The three oldest distilleries in Scotland still operate at the same location since day one. They are Strathisla (1786), Glenturret (1775), and Bowmore (1779). Anyone up for a historical field trip?

Description

Always the popular choice. This Speyside favourite has all the right spices and gives great value for money. It’s double matured in traditional oak and sherry casks, currently bottled at a comfortable 40% ABV. What’s not to like?

Tasting Notes

Sight
Mahogany
Nose
A mouthwatering scent of cinnamon crumb cake right out of the oven. It’s heavy on the vanilla and seasoned with light spices.
Palate
A classic Speyside: rich in yummy sherry flavours of sultanas, nutmeg, currant fruitcake, oak, and vanilla.
Finish
Medium long. Deliciously fruity with an upsurge of baking spices.

Mark your calendars. On 8th February, we celebrate International Scotch Day! It’s a global event. Whether you’re a whisky explorer, an enthusiast, or a collector, grab your dram and let’s cheers to a good scotch.

Description

A definite must for sherry lovers. This 15-year-old whisky is overflowing with dried fruits and spices, and that’s an understatement. There is no real reason for it to be bottled at 46% ABV other than the fact that George Grant's grandfather liked it that way. Who is George Grant? He is the 6th generation to run the Glenfarclas distillery; whisky-making is practically in his blood.

Tasting Notes

Sight
Gold amber
Nose
The sherry note packs a punch! It says 15 years but smells older. Invites an intricate blend of cream sherry, possibly Pedro Ximenez, maybe peppermint, and likely spiced. It’s too anomalous to tell.
Palate
Have we shouted sherry? Well, here it is again! Topped that with sweet chewy raisins, some orange peels, crunchy walnuts, and rich dates.
Finish
Extraordinarily long and intricate in flavour. At one point it’s a handful of walnuts. Then it’s fruitcake soaked in whisky. Have we told you that drops of water work like magic? Turns the whisky sweeter and gives it a blissful ending.

Lessons in the Dram

Here’s a fact from the Guinness Book of World Records. The oldest bottle of whisky is believed to be the Glenavon Special Liqueur Whisky, bottled by the Glenavon Distillery in Ballindalloch, Scotland. No one knows the exact age of the bottle, but professionals estimate it to be roughly 160 years old. We would very much like a taste of that. Just saying.

Description

It’s a jolly good whisky from up north of Scotland. Not exactly the north pole but close enough. Langskip is Christmas in a bottle. Matured exclusively in first-fill bourbon casks. It keeps us warm and fuzzy inside with a whopping 58% ABV, then wins our heart with its strong yummilicious flavours.

Tasting Notes

Sight
Golden straw
Nose
It smells a lot like Christmas. Spices all over with gingerbread and white pepper. Infused with the lovely scent of Demerara sugar, floral malt, and sugar-coated almonds.
Palate
Starts with a prominent taste of dried fruits like sultanas and apricots. Has an added nutty layer of macadamia and walnut, followed by big servings of nutmeg and candied ginger for that extra zing.
Finish
A good balance of lasting toffee apple and black pepper. Feisty but sweet.
