I’m very pleased to be able to offer a small batch of a lovely port-matured Glenturret – a perfect whisky for Christmas! Also available are the amazing new Glenrothes and Bruichladdich, as well as the last few bottles of the very fine Benrinnes and Bunnahabhain from earlier this year.
If you’re not sure what to choose there are now some sample packs available.
All Chorlton Whisky bottlings are single malts bottled at natural cask strength from a single cask, with no chill-filtering or added colouring. No monkey business, basically.
Five 3cl wax-sealed bottles of the whiskies currently in the range, plus a sheet with info and tasting notes. Purchasing one entitles you to a £5 discount if you subsequently order a bottle. £20, including delivery.
From one of oldest working distilleries in Scotland comes this Highland malt that has spent 14 whole years maturing in a port cask. As well as a beautiful deep colour this has also given the whisky a very rich taste, full of dried fruits, chocolate, nuts and gingerbread. It’s very appropriate for the festive season!
Bottled at 54.0% (and fantastic to drink neat) with just 50 bottles available at £50 each.
This is wonderfully old-school Speyside whisky, bottled at 52.8% after spending 20 years in a bourbon hogshead.
The nose on this is very fudgy (maybe a bit of tarte tatine too?), and the taste is honeyed and orangey with a long malty finish. Very mature and elegant, and yet so very easy to drink. No promises, but I find it really hard to imagine anyone not liking this!
Just 30 bottles available, at £70.
This Islay whisky has been bottled from a fresh bourbon barrel, and even at the full-strength of 58.4% it is incredibly smooth and creamy.
Adding water brings out a fascinating balance of flavours: green melon, savoury BBQ smoke, sweet pink peppercorns, and a distinct coastal feel. A delicious and unique whisky that you’ll want to spend a long time exploring.
Just 42 bottles available, at £65.
From the east coast of the lovely Hebridean island of Islay comes this well-aged and lightly-peated Bunnahabhain, matured in a hogshead and bottled at cask strength of 46.3%.
It’s a subtle and dignified old feller, this, with a hint of smoke running through it. The nose is very clean, honeyed and fruity, with a distinct fresh coastal quality. Peaches and seashells! Tastewise it starts off with lots of lemon and fudge, and then becomes more seasidey, with some black pepper and a salted chocolate aftertaste. It’s very easy to drink at the same time as being quite complex and nuanced.
Just 30 bottles available, at £70.
This is a single malt from the great Speyside distillery of Benrinnes, matured for 18 years in a refill bourbon barrel. The whisky is presented at natural cask strength of 50.0%.
The nose is beautifully floral and aromatic, with lots of ripe peaches and pears and a little bit of hazelnut syrup. The taste is more centred on ripe apples and light honey, with the sweetness balanced by some lemon and lime zest, mint, and a touch of peppery spice. A very elegant and delicious whisky at perfect strength.
There are just 50 bottles of this available, and the cost is £55.
