Aberfeldy 1999 - Gordon & MacPhail
Polished leather and spice with a sherry hint on the nose. The palete brings sweet treacle, dark chocolate and a faint whiff of smoke. The finish is long, spicy and the faint hint of smoke appears again.


£52.00

Aberlour A'bunhadh
A lovely cask strength Speysider, orange, black cherries, dried fruit and ginger, spiked with dark bitter chocolate and enriched with sherry and oak.


£45.00

Ardbeg Uigeadail
Peat, smoke and fire with hints of the sea and iodine, almost medicinal. A very powerful Islay cask strength.


£70.00

Ardbeg 10
The stalwart Ardbeg with the peat, smoke and fire with citrus notes and oh so lovely to drink.


£45.00

Ardbeg Auriverdes
The world cup Ardbeg (green and gold) which is back to the citrus stuff amonst the peat and smoke. Not as heavy as some of the other Ardbegs but very drinkable. Apologies for the price but I got this via a route that meant I have to charge this. Still cheaper than auction.


£110.00

Ardbeg Kildalton 2014 edition
Only had the briefest of tastes but peated (unlike the original) and citrus coming through well, like the more delicate 1978 in character but this was only a small dram so I may be wrong!


£175.00

Ardbeg 21
Time has eased the peat on this one, the bourbon cask shows through more with the vanilla and wood blending nicely. A very complex and different Ardbeg to spend time with and savour.


£390.00

Cadenheads Arran 1997, 19yo
Arran had only been open 2 years when this was casked and one of the older ones you will have the opportunity to taste.


£72.00

Ballantines Original Character
A blend at 47%. No idea what it is like but normal Ballentines is a good blend.


£75.00

Bells Special Reserve Pure Malt
A pure malt (blended or vatted malt is what we would say today) from Bells. Only produced between 2000 and 2006 so a rare botle to find.


£25.00

Benromach 10yo
Toffee, caramel (not added) and a little soft smoke.


£35.00

Benromach 10yo - 100 proof
Oh my goodness what a fantastic beefy sherry speyside whisky, all the complexity and depth that you would expect from Benromach but turned up to 11. One of my top 5 whisky under £50.


£49.50

Benromach 15yo
A deeply satisfying sherry dram with depth and complexity you can explore time and again. The thinking maltheads malt.


£51.50

Benromach Organic - Gordon & MacPhail
Oak, vanilla and a delicate sweetness a possible a little fruit on the nose. The palate is fantastic rich oak, vanilla sweetness without cloying - Moffatt toffee anyone. The flavour lasts and fills your mouth. It might be young but it doesn't display it, this is a great whisky.


£38.50

Bladnoch 1993 - Gordon & MacPhail
Sweet, floral, a dry grassiness with a hint of spice & liquorice - delicate & fragrant. A gentle lowlander.


£110.00

Bowmore 16yo single sherry cask hand bottled at Bowmore October 2013
A big brutal sherry monster with burnt molasses, seaweed, coal smoke, sticky sherry and a big mouthfeel. Not one for the faint hearted and certainly not a session whisky. Winter and firesides were made for this dram.


£115.00

Bowmore 15yo single cask hand bottled at Bowmore October 2014
A perfect foil for the one above, all gentle smoke with a creamy mouthfeel, smoked cream works for me.


£115.00

Bowmore 10yo single cask (bourbon)hand bottled at Bowmore October 2015
Vanilla fruit notes give way to the Bowmore smoke and small hints of iodine.


£95.00

Bowmore 18yo single cask (bourbon)hand bottled at Bowmore April 2017
soft fruity vanilla smoke, delicate, complex and oh soooooo good.


£160.00

Bowmore 14yo Cadenheads cask end
Single cask bottling from the warehouse tour at Cadenheads in Campbeltown - a smashing little example of a bourbon cask beauty!


£75.00

Bowmore 16yo Cadenheads cask end
Single cask bottling from the warehouse tour at Cadenheads in Campbeltown and now 2 years older than when I firest tried it. Age has not diminished this one and a classy smoky dram continues to develop. Worth buying all three to see how the colour changes and the flavours.


£90.00

Bowmore Blackrock
A Travel Retail exclusive or lucky little independents like me and it is a litre to start so bonus! A younger more fiesty version of the Darkest for me, rather enjoyable.


£65.00

Bruichladdich God Save the Queen Valinch - 50cl
I cannot tell you what this is like as I did not get the chance to try it as I got the last bottle. Very collectable and if it is a Laddies will it be bad whisky? No I do not think so either.


£140.00

Bruichladdich Micro Provenance 2005
All coconut and vanilla with a hefty alcohol bite (63.6% ABV) but a good fruity sipping whisky even so, Bruichladdich, bourbon cask and no ACEing, lovely stuff.


£125.00

Bruichladdich 23yo Cadenheads cask end
Classic and classy Laddie with tropical fruit and coconut, summer in a glass.


£140.00

Bruichladdich PHD - Feis 2016
So complex you need a doctorate to enjoy.


£125.00

Bruichladdich Rennaissance (no tin)
Slightly higher peating level than normal gives a little hint of smoke to the normal laddie fruityness.


£55.00

Bruichladdich Islay Barley 2009
A heavier oilier Laddie from the Islay barley but still good classic Bruichladdich flavour.


£57.00

Bruichladdich Wee Laddie Tasting set
Beautiful presentation box containing the Wee Laddie collection 3 x 20cl Classic Laddie, Islay Barley & Port Charlotte Scottish Barley.


£60.00

Bruichladdich Kentra Farm Barley 2004
Not had this one but if it is as good as usual you will not be disappointed.


£58.00

Bunnahabhain 18yr
Honey nuts and a hint of the sea. A huge sherry hit followed by oak and vanilla hints and a fine richness that last a long time before bringing spice and drying slightly to leave you wanting more. Now unchillfiltered and 46.3%


£110.00

Bunnahabhain 12yr
The old 12 was great but this is the new one at 46.3% and unchillfiltered. It is brilliant, richer, deeper, longer and more Bunny than a field of rabbits.


£52.00 w

Bunnahabhain 8yo Heavily peated - MacPhails Collection
Booming peat and soft silky Bunny seem to work for me. Not the most complex but great peaty fun.


£34.00

Bunnahabhain Moine Rum cask
A little cracker and rum hints adding different edge to the good solid Bunny flavour profile.


£125.00

Clynelish 1999 cask strength - Gordon & MacPhail
A stunning example of Clynelish, rich sherry influenced spirit but not over powered and depth, no alcohol burn despite the cask strength and a finish that lasts for a week.


£86.00

Caol Ila 1999 - Gordon & MacPhail
This one is a rubbery version, meaty, flat and slightly dirty with only limited sweetness. Very different from the normal distillery offering.


£40.00

Cadenheads Creations 26yo grain blend
One of Mark Watts babies and sweet vanilla driven aged blend, very different and a clear indication of why independents do so well with experimentation.


£69.00

Dutch Smile 7yo Netherlands 100% Rye Whisky
One of the whiskies picked by Whisky Magazine editor Dom Roskrow . 100% rye with loads of weird wood and oil notes, aromas and flavours, a stunning little belter.


£55.00

Edradour 10yr
Rich sweet sherry, dark chocolate, figs, marzipan and vanilla with a hint of parma violets. A classic sherried Highlander.


£43.50

Edradour 2005 Unchillfiltered - Signatory
Like the 10yo but delivers bigger hits across the flavour range - a big brother of the classic sherried Highlander.


£51.50

Garrison Bros Single Barrel Texas Bourbon
Big complex frontier whisky, loads of vanilla oak and sweetness but a silkiness too. New kids on the block but an exciting addition to the bourbon world.


£99.00

Glenallachie 22yo Cadenheads
Vanilla and cut grass nose, creamy lemon icing with a touch of herbs and grass to finish, picnic time.


£64.00

Glendronach 8yo "The Heilan"
A mix of bourbon and sherry cask bring more depth and flavour than you would expect from a young whisky as this. Holds its own amongst good company when we did it at a tasting.


£38.00

Glendullan 2001 - Gordon & MacPhail
Floral, gentle yet complex and a very sophisticated dram.


£45.75

Glenfarclas 105
Cask strength Glenfarclas, no pretentions just hard hitting alcoholic fruit cake and spice battering you round the head, smashing!


£54.00

Glenfarclas 17yo
A lovely well balanced mature Glenfarclas, more delicate on the christmas cake fruit and spices but the subtlety of this one makes it a very interesting and enjoyable in a civilised way. A gentle(mans/womans) drink.


£62.25

Glenfiddich 20cl presentation pack - 12yo, 15yo and 18yo
The biggest selling malt and 3 different expressions in this tasting pack, personal favourite is the 15yo but a great introduction for someone starting out.


last pack at this price - £30.00

Glen Grant 19yo Cadenheads International
Tasting Notes - TBC.


£55.00

Glen Grant 2005 Gordn & MacPhail
Usual fun sticky sherry casked G&M pop.


£40.00

Glenlivet Archive 1990s
What an absolute belter this is, no light fluffy stuff here, proper rich deep Glenlivet with fruit cakes and heavy sherry influence. This is how Glenlivet can be at its best, like a good aged G&M one from 1960s.


£105.00

Glenlivet Cadenheads Cask End from the Warehouse Tour
A true gem of a tutti-fruiti whisky. Slides down like an Angel caressing your throat, not burn, massive mouthfeel and a magic length. A fantastic example of what a brilliant distillery Glenlivet is when not mass produced.


£140.00

Glen Spey 2001 Cadenheads
Tasting Notes - TBC.


£36.00

Glentauchers 1989 - 25yo - Cadenheads
Tasting Notes - TBC.


£99.00

Hazelburn 12yo
A triple distilled unpeated malt whisky from Springbank. This is a sherry monster with massive hits of flavour and richness lingering around for days with the Campbeltown brine hints at the end. Beautiful.


£54.00

Hazelburn 10yo
A triple distilled unpeated malt whisky from Springbank. A fruity fun dram a little bit of sunshine with gentle spice hints and a touch of brine at the end.


£41.00

Hazelburn 13yo Oloroso cask
Loads of dried fruit, sweet sherry, a little maritime hint drifting in and it lasts with Muscatel raisins coming in on the back-palate at the end.


£55.00

Highland Park Odin - 16yo
The final Valhalla collection and all in black. Not tried it but very limted and collectable, so much so we only have one bottle for sale.


£275.00

Highland Park Ice 17yo
The follow on from the Valhalla collection and the official tasting notes point to mangoes, pineapple with vanilla and hints of smoke.


£220.00

Highland Park Fire 15yo
The follow on from the Valhalla collection sibbling to Ice. Refill port pipes give this a light smoky citrus and spiced dram.


£220.00

Ichiros Malt
A malt made up of the products from two distilleries, and what a blast of fruit you get on this one, could be a classic sauvignon if it wasn't for the 46% buzz, very different and very enjoyable.


£75.00

Kilchoman Loch Gorm 2016
The 2016 is a more gentle version with the cask coming through more to compete with the peat and the dried fruits coming up more in the mix make this even better than usual for me.


£74.00

Kilkerran 8yo Cask strength
A great fruity (apples and pear style) start with hints of spice and ginger and although 56% not harsh.


£52.00

Kilkerran 12yo
a fruity fresh dram with hints of brine way at the back.


£40.00

Laphroaig Quarter Cask
Softer than the 10, the peat, smoke and iodine are still there but softer and easier on the palate, but this isn't one for the faint hearted - it has the south Islay power.


£45.00

Laphroaig 200th Anniversary 15yo
Limited release to celebrate 200 years of Laphroaig. Good hit of Lappy at first but then softens out on the third or forth sip. Very nice but lacks that power of the older 15.


£75.00

Lagavulin Jazz Festival 2016
Official notes say sweet and smoky - honey, fresh fruit, smoked ham, raisins, toffee, tobacco and classic Lagavulin smoke.


£150.00

Lagavulin 8yo - 200th Anniversary
A young and fiesty Laga, flatter and dirtier than the usual 16 and loving that peaty hit.


£55.00

Loch Dhu
The legandary(??) black whisky from Mannachmore, too much E150 and you get a black whisky. One I dislike intensly but loved by others. Ths sticky black film it leaves is like treacle, why people buy it I don't know but we are not all the same.


£150.00

Longrow Barolo Cask – 55.8%
Big hit of ripe red fruit on the nose and the smoke we love. Big powerful dram on the palate with the red fruit showing through again mellowing the brine but not hiding it and then the complex smoky finish. Fun and fruity Longrow.


£65.00

Longrow
The no age statement standard offering from Longrow. Not as peaty as the old ones but still with the brine and smoke hints. A more subtle offering that does not capture the old Longrow but does still capture your taste buds. A soft lightly peated easy drinker.


£41.00

Longrow 10yr - 1995
One of the first releases of Longrow 10 with a year of distillation and slightly heavier in the peat than the later ones and a raw edge (but in a good way) sweet smoke and salt still a great dram.


£75.00

Longrow 18, 2011 release in a purple version of the normal Longrow style box
I have to confess I had this at the Springbank Open Day and loved it but for the life of me struggle with the tasting notes for it as it was about no 14 that day but I do remember it had all the Longrow highlights but softer and more gentle. I will update this once I have bought my bottle to try but it is Longrow, it is 18yo so it is not going to be bad is it now?


£90.00

MacPhails 15 - Gordon & MacPhail
A top Speyside distilleries spirit put in G&M casks, aged in G&M warehouses and then bottled by G&M. Fruit cake and Xmas in a glass but with a small hint of smoke and very easy drinking.


£50.00

MacPhails 25 - Gordon & MacPhail
A top Speyside distilleries spirit put in G&M casks, aged in G&M warehouses and then bottled by G&M. Sherry, spice, vanilla and fruit cake on the nose. great balance of sherry, oak and fruit on the palate with a long complex finish with a faint hint of smoke(?). This is a fantastic example that allow you to see what 25 year old spirit is like from this distillery without having to find a good few pounds extra.


£125.00

MacPhails 30 - Gordon & MacPhail
A top Speyside distilleries spirit put in G&M casks, aged in G&M warehouses and then bottled by G&M this time for 30 years. This has rich oak panelled office with a hint of smoke. On the palate rich sherry, oak, hints of smoke and spice. The finish last for ages and lingers until you have to have another. A perfect example of a fantastic speysider at its best. Character, richness and depth.


£195.00

MacPhails 40 - Gordon & MacPhail
A top Speyside distilleries spirit put in G&M casks, aged in G&M warehouses and then bottled by G&M this time for 40 years. More oak and wood influence but not overpowering the whisky as the fuit and sherry come through followed by a whiff of smoke and the whole thing lingers on you needing a sip only occassionally to spark the joy off again.


£400.00

MacPhails 50 - Gordon & MacPhail
A top Speyside distilleries spirit put in G&M casks, aged in G&M warehouses and then bottled by G&M and in this case left for a very long time. I have now tried it and this is an absolute gem. The wood works in harmony and does not overpower even at this age, there is no harshness or burn just silky smooth spirit caressing your senses with rich warmth and bags of winter spices, dark chocolate and dried ftuits. It is in my top 10 must have whiskies and in the top 5 for those that you can still get as a general release.
In addition here are the abridged official tasting notes. Resin and pine giving way to tofee and fudge on the nose, the palate is sherry wood with charred oak hints of menthol and bitter chocolate finishing in sweet sherry with a phenolic edge (sounds lovely, I had best save up).


£750.00

Mortlach 16 - Flora and Fauna - Now sadly discontinued
Sherry heaven with spices and toffee galore and treacle and far too easy to drink.
Now last bottle


£125.00

Nikka All Malt
Nice lightly spiced blend from two distilleries and two different production methods (pot and coffey stills) but only using malted barley. Gentle sweetness and a rich delicate spiced middle, rather good.

A nice little fruit burst sipper even at cask strength - 58%.


£52.00

Octomore 8.3 limited availability
Another peat beast from Bruichladdich.


£160.00

Port Charlotte PC10 from Bruichladdich - 59.2%
This shows how things soften with age, a great drinking peaty dram. Lost is the brutal youth of the PC6 and replaced with a fine mature example of what Bruichladdich can do and should do as they do it so well . Scored 96 in whisky bible so no slouch.


£120.00

Port Charlotte PC11 from Bruichladdich
Yet to try as so limited (we only have 1 bottle) and that is for sale. If it is like the rest both drinkable and collectable all at the same time.


£145.00

Port Charlotte PC12 from Bruichladdich
The final release and on the tasting list but had a sip when we were up there, rather jolly good and more sophisticated and showing gentleness with age, great whisky.


£145.00

Shackleton Mackinlay’s Rare Old Highland Malt - Limited edition bottling
A faithful reproduction of the actual Mackinlay’s whisky taken on the ill-fated Shackleton Antarctic expedition to the South pole in 1907. Fantastic presentation in its own wooden casket wrapped in paper and settled in straw with a spare cork for if you open it. A marketing mans dream and great presentation, plus Dave Broom rates the blended/vatted malt whisky inside after Richard Patterson of Whyte & MacKay tried to mirror the original and made a good job according to Dave who tried both.


£135.00

Smokehead
Rich seaweedy whisky & pearty whisky with toffee, smoke, peat, iodine, sea salt and sherry fighting for recognition. My mum loves it and she is a peathead.

Peppery initially with orange marmalade, a touch of apple and milk chocolate flavours.

Sherry aromas and a hint of the sea on the nose. The palette brings dark chocolate, Christmas fruits, marzipan and vanilla with that Springbank tang at the end.. A classic Springbank.


£57.00

Springbank 10yr
Citrus fruit and a hint of peat on the nose. The palate has a hint of smoke, vanilla, nutmeg and cinnamon ending in the salty Springbank tang.. A young sea dog at heart.


£41.00

Springbank Green 13yo sherry cask - 2015
Sherry cask this year for the Organic offering and sweeter than last years, a little deeper and just as warming and slurpable.


£60.00

Big alcohol nose with hints of the sea, sweet toffee middle on the palate rolling into a smokey sea to finish.


£51.00

Herbal and minty nose, sweet oily ginger finishing with spice and brown sugar.


£66.00

Fruit and honey with a hint of lime nose, sweety syrup and grassy notes finishing with honey and nuts.


£71.00

Yamazaki 12yo
Aged Japanease malt is going to be a thing of the past very shortly and I managed to get 2 bottles of this before my supplier ran out. The price has rocketed I am sorry to say but this is a rather good dram from the land of the rising sun.


£95.00

The Tweedale Blend
A blend recreated from an old family recipe, it is a little gem with 50/50 malt/grain and a smashing rich smooth but flavourful blend is the result. You can see the sherry influence from Speyside and just a hint of peat and smoke from Islay, a blend worth buying.


£28.50

GIN


Botanist from Bruichladdich
Containing 22 botanicals from Islay and made in the Lomand still at Bruichladdich this a bright and citrus gin so smooth you do not even need tonic. Fresh and luxurious all at the same time and a constant presence in Christines gin arsenal.


£37.00

Brockmans

£32.50

Blackwoods 60 (60% ABV)
Uses Shetland botanicals in the mix and the high alcohol gives this a beuatiful punch. Mental Martini anyone??.


£35.50

Cadenheads Classic Gin 50%
Same rich mix of heady botanicals as the Old Raj but without the saffron and more along the lines of a classical gin but classy rather than the usual gut rot mothers ruin type.
