Chorlton Whisky

Bottlings

The first new releases of 2022 are starting to appear, and there’ll be three more bottlings available in May. As usual the best way to keep up to date is by signing up to the mailing list here.

If you’re looking for one of the older bottlings then feel free to drop me a line and I may be able to point you towards one of our stockists.

An important note: I cannot currently ship to the EU. I’m really very sorry about this, and hope to be able to resume at some point.

Shipping is charged at cost, and there’s a free local pick-up option at checkout if you’re in the Manchester area. If your location isn’t available please get in touch and I’ll see what I can do. All the packaging used for shipping is recyclable.

All Chorlton Whisky releases are bottled at natural strength from a single cask, with no chill-filtering or added colouring. No monkey business, basically.


Caol Ila 11-year-old

The nose has camphor and bonfires, with more sweet fruitiness than is typical for this distillery: smoky cherries, red fruits and cough syrup. The palate balances the fruit with tarry smoke and coastal salt. With water the whisky becomes more classically Caol Ila: perfectly clean, coastal, smoky and lemony.

This whisky was distilled on the 7th October 2010, and matured in a hogshead until being bottled in March 2022. It produced 281 bottles at a cask strength of 60.4% and they are available for £76.50 each.


Mannochmore 13-year-old

An impeccable dram for the spring and summer here. The nose is full of sweet lemons, with touches of spearmint and honey. The texture on the palate is syrupy and waxy, with the citrus balanced by butterscotch sweetness, before a finish that is clean, citrussy, slightly salty and honeyed. Available exclusively here in the UK.

This whisky was distilled on the 15th October 2008, and matured in a bourbon barrel until being bottled in March 2022. It produced 162 bottles at a cask strength of 59% and they are available for £78.50 each.


Tullibardine 29-year-old

A characterful but easy-drinking example of this distinctive Highland make. The nose has banana bread, caraway and rye, peanut brittle, honey, olive oil and apricot jam. The palate takes us to a bakery somewhere in central Europe with gingerbread, rye bread, baking spices and honeyed pastries, plus orange cream and sweet Frisian tea.

This whisky was distilled on the 3rd March 1993, and matured in a hogshead until being bottled in March 2022. It produced 181 bottles at a cask strength of 47.5% and they are available for £160 each.


Speyside 13-year-old

This is sherry-matured single malt from Glenrothes distillery.

You almost get two whiskies for one here. Neat this is rich and intense, with chocolate, peanut brittle, dried figs, jaffa cake and a thickly-textured mouthfeel. Adding water brings a zesty fruitiness into the foreground (orange cake, grapefruit jam, apple pie), with the richer caramel and nutty notes returning in the finish. It’s great fun to play around and find your own perfect balance!

This whisky was distilled on the 19th June 2008, and matured in a second-fill sherry butt until being bottled in November 2021. It produced 368 bottles at a cask strength of 64.6% and they are available for £76.50 each.


Tormore 28-year-old

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.


Tote Bag

A sturdy canvas shopping bag with long handles and a gusset, perfect for transporting whisky or other essentials. Screenprinted in Yorkshire. £4 each, and can be added to any bottle order for no extra postage.

    Hi,

    Do you ship to the U.S.? I’d love to get a hold of some. Thanks!

      Hi Matt. I can’t send to the US directly I’m afraid, but some of my stockists (Whiskybase, Tyndrum, Nickolls & Perks, Milroy’s) should be able to ship to you.

    I have just bought and tried the Cataibh 10-year-old here in Hong Kong. What a fantastic whisky this is (Clynelish) immediately impressed with the initial power and flavour and adding a few drops of water made this explode with aroma and hidden flavours. Right up there as one of my favorite expressions.
