A combination of rich sweetness with a smoky dryness and appetising spice distinguishes this lovingly-matured Highland malt.

This single malt Scotch Whisky is inspired by the iconic and rewarding first bottling of the 16 year old released in 1992. It has been matured in only Sherry casks to impart rich, fruity and fragrant notes atop the beasty complexity synonymous with Mortlach.
MORTLACH 12 Year Old The Wee Witchie. The entry point of the Mortlach range, combining both ex-bourbon- and ex-sherry-matured whisky to balance the distillery’s traditionally weighty, dried fruit character against fresh fruit and vanilla notes.
The result is a success, combining the best of both of these worlds while still showing off the meaty Mortlach spirit.
The MACALLAN Sir Peter Blake Special Edition 2021, The Anecdotes of Ages Collection is an extraordinary art and whisky collaboration with globally renowned British pop artist, Sir Peter Blake.
The collaboration is The Macallan’s third with the iconic artist, and is part of a relationship that has spanned almost four decades. The partnership celebrates our rich legacy and Sir Peter Blake’s remarkable contribution to the art world.
This special single malt whisky has been created to commemorate Sir Peter Blake’s visit to The Macallan Estate on the legendary River Spey. An Estate, A Community, and A Distillery tells the story of some of the colourful characters from The Macallan’s past and present and features a label digitally designed by Sir Peter himself.
The Macallan Lead Whisky Maker, Sarah Burgess, was inspired by Sir Peter Blake’s character to create a whisky classic in style with surprising notes of treacle and black pepper.
The label that adorns this limited edition single malt has been created by Sir Peter Blake digitally. Taking inspiration from Sir Peter, the presentation box has been created with colours that inspired his art – blue and green with natural textures.
The presentation box houses the bottle, a certificate detailing the history and heritage on which the art was based, and artwork printed on a scroll. This brightly coloured scroll contains a collage representing anecdotes from the wider collection, portrayed in Sir Peter Blake’s distinct style. A tracing paper overlay provides information on each character from The Macallan’s history that Sir Peter chose to include in his art.
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.
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.
This bicentenary limited edition is magnificently full-on in flavour – a celebration of the people and craft that make Lagavulin great.
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.
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...
AMESON Black Barrel is an irish whiskey elaborated with a triple distilled, twice charred, for a rich smooth taste.
Charring is an age-old method for invigorating barrels to intensify the taste. Jameson Black Barrel is a tribute to the distillery’s coopers, who painstakingly give their bourbon barrels an additional charring to reveal their untold richness and complexity. Because every barrel contains secrets; the trick is coaxing them out.
Time spent maturing in these barrels leads to intensified aromas of butterscotch, fudge and creamy toffee. Nutty notes are in abundance alongside the smooth sweetness of spice and vanilla.
Finish Jameson Black Barrel, enjoy the richness and intensity of toasted wood and vanilla.
Highland Park's 15 Year Old Viking Heart has been made using predominantly sherry-seasoned European and American casks, as well as a few refill casks, bottled at 44% ABV. Well, I suppose we should say "ceramic decantered" rather than "bottled", really. The decanters were made by Wade Ceramics, and inspired by the earthenware vessels that whisky would have been stored in centuries ago.
VIKING HONOUR reflects the unique culture of our remote island home here on Orkney. Part of Scotland yes, but originally belonging to a vast Viking kingdom. At Highland Park, we honour the spirit of our Viking ancestors, sharing their pride, integrity and fierce independence, and we distill our award-winning whisky to the same exacting standards introduced in 1798 by our founder, Magnus Eunson, a descendant of those early Viking settlers.
GLENROTHES Whisky Maker’s Cut. A rich non-age-statement whisky matured entirely in first-fill sherry casks, with notes of orange, vanilla, nutmeg and oak. It is part of The Soleo Collection: a range of five whiskies from Glenrothes, ranging from 10 to 25 years old, which pay homage to the grapes from which some sherries, such as Pedro Ximénez, are made. The red label on this bottle reflects the colour of the grape just before it begins to ripen.
The Soleo Collection Matured only in sherry seasoned oak casks and bottled at natural colour with a character of vanilla, melon, and cinnamon.
