All Chorlton Whisky releases are bottled at natural strength from a single cask, with no chill-filtering or added colouring. No monkey business, basically.
The oldest Chorlton release to date! This Glentauchers has a fantastic balance between zingy fruitiness (pineapple, tangerine, honeysuckle) and a herbal and lightly waxy character that continually develops and changes in the glass. It’s as beautifully complex as you’d hope from something of this age, but also still incredibly lively and zesty.
This whisky was distilled on the 19th September 1989, and matured in a bourbon barrel until being bottled just shy of its 32nd birthday. It produced 153 bottles at a cask strength of 47.5% and they are available for £225 each.
This is almost a Greatest Hits bottling, with a bit of everything you like about Ledaig: coastal smoke, seafood, tar, and all that good stuff. There’s a certain elegance in how it all holds together though, a lean towards an almost Laphroaigy medicinal quality, and with time a ripe red apple sweetness to be found. Lovely!
This whisky was distilled on the 6th May 2009, and matured in a refill hogshead until being bottled in September 2021. It produced 311 bottles at a cask strength of 55.5% and they are available for £76.50 each.
Properly matured single malt here from the reliably fruity Tormore distillery!
On the nose this is a real fruit basket (red apples, orange drops, marmalade, juicy Riesling), backed with some mineralic and foresty depth (waxes, flints and ferns). The palate is lightly syrupy and waxy, with cream teas and biscuits mixed in with the fruits. The finish is very clean, with blood oranges and mandarins. Very summery, and utterly delicious.
This whisky was distilled on the 16th November 1992, and matured in a refill hogshead until being bottled in July 2021. It produced 253 bottles at a cask strength of 42.4% and they are available for £175 each. Last few.
