Aromas of dusty whisky warehouses and rich malt are complemented by more playful zinfandel hints of summer berries and liquorice. The palate is balanced with a heavy, creamy mouthfeel and notes of spice, molasses and thyme honey.


Distillery Notes:Nose: Creamy vanilla with toasted oak spice flows ovre candy store confectionery and crisp freshly peated barley.Palate: Crisp oak and hints of candied ginger, boiled sweets and brittle toffee, all surrounded by the most deliciously sweet peat smoke.


A rare and old bottling of Dalwhinnie 8 Year Old from the 1980s. In the old 75cl format, we only have one and we won't be opening it to provide a tasting note, sorry! In its stead, please enjoy this description from the back of the bottle..."This whisky has been distilled in one of the highest distilleries in Scotland. Set in bleak wild country surrounded by mountains of the Grampian range by the end of Loch Ericht and near to the source of the Spey. Cluny's Cave on the Loch Ericht West Shore was where Bonnie Prince Charlie hid after Culloden. An area full of Scottish history.This Pure Malt with its unique flavour has the famous signature of renown on its label."(the signature is that of James Buchanan)


A fascinating blended malt, comprised of rare Scottish and Japanese whiskies. Its name derives from the Scottish Samurai", Thomas Blake Glover, and is a tribute to the bond between Scotland and Japan.


Port Ellen enjoys a somewhat cult status amongst whisky fans who favour a peated style. This is one of the last distillations before the distillery was mothballed in 1983,  bottled by flag-bearers for the whisky industry, Gordon & Macphail. With the distillery expected to be operational again some time in 2020, these old bottlings will provide fascinating insight into how the new liquid measures up!Distillery Note:Nose: Peaty with some citrus notes.Palate: Delicate ash and fruity, with balanced body.Finish: Peat smoke with a spicy edge.
