All Chorlton Whisky releases are bottled at natural strength from a single cask, with no chill-filtering or added colouring. No monkey business, basically.
A fully sherry-matured Speysider for the summer? Why ever not! This one has dark berry fruits, honey and toasted teacake on the nose. The palate is creamy, with lemon drops, caramelised pears and an earthy and toasty cardamom spiciness, leading into a hazelnut and dried fruit finish. An affable and quaffable dram, but by no means dull.
This sherry butt produced 455 bottles at 57.6% and they are available for £60 each.
Bealach Ruadh 7-year-old
Another installment in the annual-ish Chorlton Whisky secret Islay single malt release! This one is an absolute delight, with astonishing complexity and development for a young whisky, and an amazing balance of peat smoke, maritime notes and toffee apple sweetness. It also has a really appealing coastal freshness, with herbs and pine forest, and a long smoky-sweet finish.
This bourbon hogshead only produced 152 bottles at 58.2% and they are available for £52.50 each.
Ruadh Maor 8-year-old
Fantastic heavily-peated whisky from Glenturret distillery! On the nose this is earthy, oily and smoky, with patatas bravas, honey and bacon crisps. The palate is huge, complex and deeply savoury, with barbecued meats, charred herbs, orange bitters, espresso and a lovely honeyed taste and mouthfeel. Absolutely delicious, a little bit wild, and bursting with personality.
Sweet and smoky single malt from this amazing Highland distillery. The nose has baked apple with orange cream and honey, backed by a savoury smokiness. The palate is smoky and rich, with burnt honey, gingerbread and treacle. Juicy green fruits pop out with time, and lead into a long, chewy finish with spiced orange.
This bourbon barrel contained 153 bottles at 60.1%, and they are available for £55 each. Last two!
These are sold out, but you may still find a bottle at one of our stockists.
