We have 4 new bottlings in from AD Rattray and they are all spectacular.

AD Rattray Bowmore 1998 12 Years Old

This is a big Bowmore which I found more smoky that the tasting notes from ADR with intriguing orange peel.  Well worth the money.  A genuine  winter warmer.

Nose: Malty cereal notes, a touch of smoke and peat with hints of orange peel.

Taste: Very malty, soft oily texture, smoke coming through with a touch of spice.

This is a phenominal sherry cask Clynelish - don't miss out.

Nose: Creme Brulee, caramelised pears and slight savoury noted.

Taste: Good all-over mouthfeel, very warming with creamy liquorice.

AD Rattray Craigellachie 1991 20 Years Old

A delicious elder bourbon cask whisky.

Nose: Sweet and fruity with honeysuckle blossom, nectarines and vanilla.

Taste: Silky mouthfeel with caramel and soft spice. Well structured.

AD Rattray Monymusk Jamaican Rum 1986 25 Years Old

Looking for something different this Christmas? May be another cracking rum from ADR might fit the bill.  It certainly has lots of Christmas notes.

Nose: Deep rich and complex. Fruity with hints of steeped raisins and pineapple.

Taste: Spicy wood and a lovely velvety mouthfeel. Christmas fruits and banoffee pie.

By Mike Lord

AD Rattray Glen Grant 1985 24 Years Old @ 55.8%

A class act this one.  Well aged an sophisticated.  If it was a person it would wear tweed and look good in it.

Kiwi fruits and bananas but a real chardonnay edge to this one.  Amazing.

Another cracking Laphroaig from ADR.  This one is a real feisty 11 years old.

Three fantastic new bottlings from AD Rattray:

Benrinnes 1996 13 Years Old

This whisky is a first fill from a Sherry Hogshead and is at 57%.  It's full on sherry with lots of syrup.  If you ever wanted to know wanted to know what a chocolate fruit cake is like then this it.

Highland Park 1995 14 Years Old

An exceptional Highland Park particularly if you like them a bit more peaty than the average.  The Bourbon cask supports a tary smokiness coming through with creamy.  Smoked custard!

Glen Elgin 1984 24 Years Old

A really smooth 24 years old with the wood not dominant.  Still fresh and buttery.  Has a quality like an oaked Chardonnay.  Great.
