There have been quite a few new bottlings for single malt whisky into the shop over the last week or two.
Kilchoman Spring Spring 2010 Release £45.95
Ã¯»¿Ã¯»¿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
Adelphi Bunnahabhain 1968 41 Years Old £137.95
From 2 European Oak Sherry Butts. This is a fabulous old whisky. A real stunner.
Adelphi Longmorn 1992 17 Years Old £75.95
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.
Adelphi Macallan 1995 14 Years Old £69.95
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.
"Spiced Apples" Benrinnes 1995 £46.95
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.
"The Fruit Bowl" Glen Garioch 1989 £66.50
This does what it says and its all about fruit salad from a wooden bowl.
"Tropical Spice" Dalmore 1990 19 Years Old £71.95
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.
