There have been quite a few new bottlings for single malt whisky into the shop over the last week or two.
ï»¿ï»¿The latest release from Kilchoman. This one has been matured in a combination of fresh and refill bourbon barrels for 3 years then finished in 'very active' oloroso butts for 3 and a half months.
Three New Realease from Adelphi
From 2 European Oak Sherry Butts. This is a fabulous old whisky. A real stunner.
On the nose tomatoes, peaches. A background wisp of smoke. On the palate it is rich, creamy with treacle and toffee. Probably the best Longmorn I've had.
A great cask strength Macallan from a refill sherry cask with Sweet. Malt. Madeira cake. Gariboldi biscuits. Raisins. Sun dried tomatoes.
And from Wemyss Vintage Malts
"Honey Smoke" Caol Ila 1996 £78.95
An acceptional Caol Ila. Orange Muscat on fire.
A great Benrinnes from a refill sherry hgshead. Probably my favourite of the bunch. On both the nose and the palate there's just different layers of spice and apples.
This does what it says and its all about fruit salad from a wooden bowl.
This is the Wemyss bottling that so many are raving about. From a first fill sherry butt. The nose is Brandy snaps and fig rolls. The taste is chocolate cake in Cognac.
And for something different:
Darnley's View Gin £19.95
A fabulous gin from Wemyss. The two main botanicals of Elderflower and citrus really standout producing a gin that already smells like gin and tonic.
