GLENROTHES WHISKY MAKERS CUT               

About this Whiskey:  

The Glenrothes distillery has been producing some of Speyside's finest single malt for more than a century. What began in 1879 continues in much the same way to this day: the making of a no-nonsense, finely crafted single malt. A whisky made with integrity, authenticity and, above all, with expert craft.        

Why We Love It:       

Introduced in September 2018, The Glenrothes Whisky Maker’s Cut is a single malt from the brand's Soleo Collection. This collection ages entirely in sherry seasoned oak and is 100% natural color. This bottling, however, matured in first-fill sherry seasoned casks. Named for the process for drying grapes when making some sherry styles like Pedro Ximenez, this collection replaces all existing Glenrothes expressions. This single malt bears no age statement and is bottled at 48.8% ABV.       

Tasting note:  

Aromas of candied peel and fresh oak notes. Rich and spicy on the palate with hints of creamy vanilla and orange peel. Finish is long with a hint of nutmeg.

About this Whiskey:  

Mac-Talla (Mac-Talla, meaning “echo” in Scottish Gaelic) is a range of Single Malt Scotch Whiskies from the Scottish island of Islay. Created by one of Scotland’s oldest whisky families, the Morrison's, it is a journey across this weather beaten island & perfectly reflects the taste journey of multiple dimensions that come from this complex, untamed environment           

Why We Love It:       

Mac-Talla Strata is a rich and balanced whisky that will delight any lover of Islay whiskies. A classic Islay malt with smoky and maritime notes, Strata has been aged for 15 years in a combination of bourbon and sherry casks. Naturally coloured and non chill filtered.

Smoked barley, sea salt, and stewed fruits on the nose, a creamy mouthfeel with typical Islay peat and winter spices, & a lovely smoky finish - rich and warm.

RAMPUR DOUBLE CASK - INDIAN SINGLE MALT

About this Whiskey

Rampur Distillery is stated in the northern region of India; handcrafted and aged in the foothills of the Himalayas. This region is exposed to a massive temperature change from 0°C-45°C and humidity is around 70%-80%, which is less than Scotland. This combination actually increases the speed of oak extraction and makes the whisky ready in a shorter amount of time. 

Why We Love It

This is the Double Cask expression, which spent two-thirds of its life in American oak bourbon barrels, and the other third in European oak sherry casks. A fabulous balance of dry sherry spice and sweeter, tropical notes from the American oak.

Tasting note

Full-bodied aroma of tropical fruits, smooth malty tones and oaky notes from double oak-wood barrels create an aurora of flavors. The palate expresses raisins, plums, cherries, caramel, tobacco, & finishes with a malty sweetness.

FERCULLEN 14 YEAR OLD SINGLE MALT IRISH 

About this Whiskey:   

Fercullen 14 Year Single Malt is a sourced whiskey released by Powerscourt Distillery in Co. Wicklow. It aged for 14 years in ex-bourbon and was distilled by Powerscourt master distiller Noel Sweeney. Bottled at 92 proof.

 

Why We Love It:         

Three custom-designed copper pot stills form the Distillery centrepiece. Uniquely shaped by skilled craftsmen, these copper stills are made in much the same way as they were in the 1800’s when the Mill House was in daily use. Powerscourt Distillery has been custom designed and commissioned by Forsyths, a 5th-generation family owned business from Scotland who have been manufacturing distillery equipment since the 1890’s.

Honey, vanilla, sweet malty, spice, almonds, cinnamon, rich plums, clean and fresh. A refreshingly smooth and complex palate, silky sweet malt with subtle oak. Spicy, fruity, nutty, complex and tasty.

PEARSE LYONS 12 YR SINGLE MALT WHISKEY      

About this Whiskey:  

Pearse Founder’s Choice is a 12-year-old Single Malt aged in ex-Bourbon barrels from our sister distillery, Town Branch Distillery in Lexington Kentucky. Distilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley.

 

Why We Love It:         

Dublin has deep historical roots with world class Irish whiskey. Official records have revealed that Irish Whiskey production grew to some four million gallons in the 1820s. Of course, this did not account for the illegal Irish Whiskey that was also being distilled without permission. The blend is bottled at 42% ABV and features no chill filtration or additional colouring. It is the only member of the line-up to have an age statement, which is 12 years.

 

Tasting note:  

This is a gorgeous Irish whiskey. On the nose this whiskey opens with orchard fruits of white peach, apple and a tingle of spiced pear, herbal and pine. Hints of lemon, dried orange and a touch of honeysuckle. A medium to long finish, is deliciously silky smooth and leaves you with warm notes of ginger and clove.
