To achieve final finishing, sake needs to go through 3 final pressing stage namely the Arabashiri (first pressed/first run sake), Nakadorl (2nd pressed/middle take) and finally, Seme (last pressed).
Hence, for this special Anniversary joint bottling (also our first Sake product) we are introducing a special sake experience by releasing a set of 3 bottle sake from the same single tank, harvested individually from each of the three pressing stage, allowing you to experience and satisfying curious palate with the difference in taste that each (three) of the pressing stage brings. This is also the first ever single tank sake in set ever release.
Single malt Scotch whisky from the Knockando distillery in the prolific Speyside region, aged for a dozen years before being bottled. Interestingly, they seem to have done away with including the vintage for this bottling...
Aged in oak casks for at least sixteen years, this much sought-after single malt has the massive peat-smoke that's typical of southern Islay - but also offering a dryness that turns it into a truly interesting dram.
This bicentenary limited edition is magnificently full-on in flavour – a celebration of the people and craft that make Lagavulin great.
LAPHROAIG 10 Year Old is the original Laphroaig, distilled the same way today as when Ian Hunter invented it more than 75 years ago. It is the foundation of all other Laphroaig expressions.
In making Laphroaig, malted barley is dried over a peat fire. The smoke from this peat, found only on Islay, gives Laphroaig its particularly rich flavour.
Those enjoying the 10 Year Old will first notice the bold, smoky taste, followed by a hint of seaweed and a surprising sweetness. This full-bodied variant is the foundation of all Laphroaig expressions and comes with a long finish.
This whisky was also named 2019 Best Single Malt Scotch 10 Years & Under by Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible.
Released in 2004, this bottling was aged for around five years before being finished in a quarter cask for several months, the size of the cask is quite small, thus does not require such a long maturation. This remains a truly great achievement from Laphroaig.
For the Laphroaig Select, the Islay distillery has taken whisky from a number of different types of cask, including Oloroso Sherry butts, white American oak, Pedro Ximenez seasoned hoggies, Quarter casks and first fill bourbon casks. Quite a "selection", wouldn't you say? A laid-back addition to the Laphroaig core range of single malts.
This exquisite 12 year old single malt has a deep fruity character of peach and pear layered with a vanilla sweetness and the characteristic hints of peat and smoke found in loch lomond whiskies.

Loch Lomond Inchmoan 10-Year-Old Single Malt scotch whisky has an unconventional peat character with a lot of depth marrying smoke and spiciness.
It is matured for 10 years in a mix of re-charred American oak and refills bourbon American oak casks giving sweet vanilla background notes that complement the soft peat style of Loch Lomond’s unique still set up. For centuries, the mainland inhabitants of Luss, on the west side of Loch Lomond, used Inchmoan island as their source of peat fuel for the village fires. Hence its name ‘Inch-moan’: the island of the peat in Gaelic.
Loch Lomond 14 year old single malt is born from a combination of malt whiskies from our traditional swan neck pot still and our unique straight neck pot still to create an unconventional peat character with a lot of depth marrying smoke and spiciness.

Loch Lomond 18 year old has a strong oak character, with hints of summer grass, tropical fruit and zesty citrus notes. our master cooper back then was tommy wallace, who carefully selected the finest casks to mature the liquid for a minimum of 18 years allowing time and nature to bring out the sweet character of the wood. our 18 year old is non-chill filtered to keep things just as nature intended.
Our master distiller Bill White selects individual casks matured exclusively in traditional American oak whisky barrels before marrying them together for a further maturation in casks that have previously been used for making fortified madeira wine. the madeira cask finish enhances the orchard fruit character of peach and pear with marzipan and nutmeg and gives a dry nuttiness to the long, oak finish.
