This classic Islay make has been matured for 18 years in a sherry butt, and is a great example of the distillery style. The nose starts with sea air and waxed mandarins, before developing in a richer direction with brioche, praline and chocolate-covered raisins. The palate has a clean, crisp fruitiness to it that again develops towards deeper notes of toasted nuts, Daim bars and orange marmalade. Just a touch of smoke in here too. Grand!
This sherry butt produced 322 bottles at 53.4% and they’re available for £150 each. Last few!
A well-aged and elegantly fruity Speysider for you, that comes alive with a drop of water. The nose has melon, peach tea, orange oil and dried flowers. The palate is honeyed and floral, with stone fruits, orange jelly, cola cubes and almond biscuits over a solid cereal backbone. I have a particular fondness for these early 90s ‘lossies, so I’m delighted to be able to offer you this example.
This hogshead produced 170 bottles at 51.2% and they are available for £180 each.
Peated single malt from Captain Haddock’s favourite distillery! This one starts on a sweet note, with banana milkshake, Milky Bars and a funky sort of fruitiness on the nose. The palate starts with fudgy chocolate, soft ginger and mango, before the peat makes itself felt with light smoke and a hit of black olive saltiness. This is a hugely fun whisky, and enjoyably weird around the edges.
This hogshead produced 231 bottles at 53.9% and they are available for £62.50 each.
This whisky (from the more famous of the two Orkney distilleries) has been matured in a very active cask, giving it the sort of hue you might expect from first-fill bourbon. The nose has waxy citrus, sea water and sticky cherry-flavour cough syrup alongside a lightly fragrant peat smoke. The palate is oily and chewy, with stewed red berries, smouldering wood, rose petals, herbal pastilles and a long coastal finish.
There are only 121 bottles of this at 57.1% and £75 each. Only one per person please.
