Glenmorangie 10 Year Old Original 86 Proof Single Malt Highland Scotch Whisky
Glenmorangie 10 Year Old Original 86 Proof Single Malt Highland Scotch Whisky

Highland Single Malt Scotch 94 Points - Jim Murray's Whiskey Bible "[Nose - 24] perhaps the most enigmatic aroma of them all: delicate yet assertive, sweet yet dry, young yet oaky: a malty poem; [Taste - 22] flaky oakiness throughout but there is an impossibly complex toastiness to the barley which seems to suggest the lightest hint of smoke; [Finish - 24] amazingly long for such a light dram, drying from the initial sweetness but flaked almonds amid the oakier, rich cocoa notes; [Overall Balance - 24] remains one of the great single malts, a whiskey of uncompromising aesthetic beauty from the first enigmatic whiff to the last teasing and tantalizing gulp. Complexity at its most complex." - Jim Murray

Good light gold, pale straw color. Fresh, medium-bodied, steely with floral notes and a touch of peat. Light, fresh,slightly smoky with oily creaminess. Sweet finish, with good length." -The Distillery

Glenmorangie 12 Year Old Lasanta Extra Sherry Cask Matured 92 Proof Single Malt Highland Scotch Whisky 750 mL

"Elegant but full bodied this whisky has spent ten years maturing in American white oak ex-bourbon casks before being extra-matured for a further two years in Oloroso and PX Sherry casks from Jerez in Spain. "Lasanta is Gaelic for warmth and passion, a reminder not just of the Spanish provenance of these Oloroso sherry butts, but also a reflection of this expressions lusciously soft texture and deep, enticingly sweet aroma.Non chill-filtered for additional aroma and mouthfeel.." - Glenmorangie Tasting Notes: Aroma: Warm spices mix with smooth chocolate covered raisins, honeycomb and caramel toffee. Taste: Deliciously sweet sherry flavoured sultanas, orange segments, walnuts and butterscotch combine to create complex warm spices. Finish: Long and satisfying finish with spiced orange and chocolate covered hazelnuts.

Lagavulin 8 Year Old 200th Anniversary Limited Edition Single Malt Scotch 750mL
Lagavulin 8 Year Old 200th Anniversary Limited Edition Single Malt Scotch 750mL

Master of Malt: Back in the 1880s Alfred Barnard, author of The Whisky Distilleries of the United Kingdom, enjoyed an 8 year old Lagavulin he described as "exceptionally fine". As part of their 200th anniversary celebrations, the distillery have therefore decided to recreate an 8 year old! It's bottled at an exciting 48% abv and was matured in refill European and American oak casks.

Producer's Tasting Note: The palate is light in texture, with a magnificently full-on Lagavulin taste that’s even bigger than you may expect; sweet, smoky and warming, with a growing, smoky pungency, then dry, with more smoke. The finish is lovely: clean, very long and smoky. This is a polished and exquisitely crafted celebration of Lagavulin with smoky-clean aromas and a mighty taste.
