This 2015 edition was distilled in 2003 and matured in traditional cask followed by a finishing period in ex-port wood casks. The ex-port barrels adds an extra layer of flavour and complexity, very much complimenting the base-spirit.
Wolfburn Aurora is matured in three different types of cask: refill quarter casks, first-fill bourbon barrels and first-fill oloroso sherry hogsheads. The three components are married to produce a sweet whisky with hints of spice.
'Eigashima Shuzo’ is the only distillery in Japan being able to make not only Whisky but also Sake, Shochu and Umeshu, a Japanese plum wine. They are also the first distillery in Japan that obtained their whisky making license in 1919, almost a hundred years ago, before "Yamazaki” was established.
Kadhambam means ‘mixture’ or ‘combination’ in Tamil language, which could not define this Amrut whisky any better: a single malt that aged in bourbon cask before being first transferred into ex-oloroso casks, then into brandy casks and finally into rum casks. Kadhambam is a unique and thrilling whisky which requires time to show all the nuances of its aromatic and gustative palette
The whisky with best Indian grain, grown at the foot of the Himalaya, produced according to an old Indian tradition. He is fermented gently and burned in small ranks, to keep the natural flavours.

Every last drop of this spectacular Scotch is triple distilled then matured for over twelve years.

The third and final appearance of The Devil's Casks from Bowmore, this combines the features of the previous two. Both Pedro Ximénez and oloroso sherry casks have been used, resulting in an intense and rich whisky with notes of coffee, salted treacle, chocolate fudge and dates.
This entry level Bunnahabhain bottling comes in a redesigned bottle. This 12 year old is lightly peated for an Islay single malt and consequently is a light, fresh dram. Now at the higher strength of 46.3% - for more complexity and flavour.
The core of the Jura range, aged for 12 years in bourbon casks and then finished in Oloroso sherry. The result blends the distillery's characteristic gently smoky character with sweetness, spice and dark fruit. A great introduction to Jura.
The second Select Reserve from Diageo's Special Releases, Jim Beveridge has again been busy hand-selecting Clynelish casks. Yep, we're all jealous of him too! Liquid was chosen from ex-bourbon first-fill American oak barrels, rejuvenated and refill American oak hogsheads, and ex-Sherry and refill European oak butts - no stone was left unturned it seems. A release of 2,946 individually numbered bottles.
A great blended malt from Compass Box. This was specially crafted by John Glaser, the whisky zealot. It contains highland single malts like Teaninich and secret malts from the villages of Carron and Brora.
