Taste: A full-bodied dram with great texture. The flavour is spicy at first with notes of vibrant citrus, sherry and dark chocolate developing and revealing a mouth-watering burst of hot toffee and honey sweetness.

ARDBEG AURIVERDES, 750ML

Product SKU: 764244
Nose: Smoked bacon, Tarry ropes on a not-long-dry seashore. Loads of Vanilla. Pomegranates, Fizzy-sweets (refreshers, Sherbet Lemons) and Lemon-zest. Not convinced I’d have got Mocha, if not for the autosuggestion, but it’s definitely there now I think about it.

Palate: Initially sweet, restrained, more of that bacon, but this time it's been cured with Muscovado sugar and maybe a touch of Juniper? Progresses through the inevitable onslaught of peat, but it's there in a slightly different way, more 'high', medicinal phenols than we've come to expect with Ardbeg.

Finish: Long. Cocoa, Charred corners of a pulled pork butt, becomes more ashy as it fades, but clearly from good honest casks albeit with charred heads.

Product SKU: 752097
The power surges onto the taste buds, detonating across the palate in wave after wave of flavour. The olfactory senses first detect the peat settling on the back palate, smouldering with intent. Then the combination of oak & barley take the middle ground & vanilla-dipped fruits hold fast on the front palate. With a second sip, the flavours integrate into a harmonious, vibrant taste experience, with the sweet, biscuity taste of the malt shining through to bring balance to the mid- palate. The natural oils hold all the components together giving a smooth- ness that chill-filtered spirits lack. The citrus, marine, moorland fresh- ness is a perfect foil for the peat flavours, giving a taste that can only be... Islay

EDRADOUR 10 YR. OLD, 700ML

Product SKU: 727788
Edradour boasts its status as Scotland's smallest distillery and at the heart of the range, this 10 year old Eastern Highlander is a rather unique single malt, a decidedly rum-like dram with a thick mouthfeel.

Nose: Medium, great complexity. Thoroughly fruity, sherry, sweetness, alluring vanilla.

Palate: Cloying, seductive murkiness. Rum, barley, toasted almonds. Some may find themselves lost in the mêlée, not quite enough method to the madness.

Finish: Any confusion is arrested: spiced fruitcake with crème anglaise.

Overall: An unusual malt.

EDRADOUR BAROLO FINISH, 500ML

Product SKU: 754049
This splendid Edradour 11 year old, distilled in March 2002, was matured in a hogshead and then transferred into a Barolo red wine hogshead for finishing. After that it was popped right into 440 bottles at cask strength, hence "Straight From The Cask". Those bottles were then popped into the happy, little crates that we really quite enjoy.

GLENDRONACH PARLIAMENT 21 YR., 700ML

Product SKU: 747034
A 21 year old Glendronach released in 2011, and aged in a mix of sherry casks (Oloroso and sweet Pedro Ximenez dessert sherry). The result is really very good indeed. Interestingly enough, this whisky has no political associations. It is, in fact, named "Parliament" after the collective term for a group of rooks - and there is a Parliament of Rooks living in the trees near GlenDronach

Nose: Soft smoke and lemon juice, cedar wood, apple peel, toasty oak, soft earth, date and walnut cake and a hint of freshly made espresso.

Palate: Golden Syrup, soft, juicy raisins, tangy oak notes, peach, cherry blossom, cocoa and honeydew melon.

Finish: Sherry tones lead the finish, with a hint of sulphur, chocolate, luscious fruit and pepper.

Nose: Smoked and malty nose with notes of cured ham, oysters with lemon and red wine vinegar, a touch of TCP and citrus zest.

Palate: Oaky and bittersweet with black pepper, toffee apples, dark chocolate, aniseed and warm, spicy peat. Very complex, with a development of star anise.

Finish: Very long and salty with sticking plasters and blackcurrant.

LAPHROAIG 10 YR. OLD, 750ML

Product SKU: 739119
Really smoky and iodine rich. This has to be one of Scotland's most characterful drams. Laphroaig are known for their medicinal malts, and the classic 10 year old is no exception

Nose: This opens on big, smoky muscular peat notes. There are spices, and liquorice, as well as a big dose of salt. This whisky has become slightly sweeter in recent years, and it beautifully on the nose, amidst the classic iodine/sticking plasters and cool wood smoke we love.

Palate: Seaweed-led, with a hint of vanilla ice cream and more than a whiff of notes from the First Aid box (TCP, plasters etc). The oak is big, and muscles its way into the fore as you hold this whisky over your tongue. An upsurge of spices develop – cardamom/black pepper/chilli.

Finish: Big and drying, as the savoury, tarry notes build up with an iodine complexity.

Overall: The only malt from Laphroaig’s range that John Campbell recommends with water; try it, it opens up the palate massively, providing a dazzling array of additional flavours…

LAPHROAIG TRIPLEWOOD, 750ML

Product SKU: 748480
Nose: Molasses and oily toffee. Dates, walnuts, notes from the Maker’s Mark barrels (vanilla, toastiness, sweetness etc). We got oodles of butter, zest, cool wood smoke, almond, and passion fruit.

Palate: Dry and medicinal, with exotic spices, perhaps even some turmeric. The palate is surprisingly savoury at first, with what John described as “dry dampness” (taste and it’ll make sense!) - think musty wood sheds and hints of moist autumnal forest floor. The sherry notes are there too, but rather than being the big Christmas pudding flavour one often expects from Oloroso-aged whisky, we are instead treated to a much more restrained iced fruitcake, graced with hints of Laphroaig’s classic smoke.

Finish: Oaked. The mustiness carries into the finish, which lasts for a good while, with oily spices and dried fruit.

Notes of barley and malt extract with walnut and pine oil and a hint of iodine with notes of dried fruit and nuts. The palate is medium-bodied and quite rich. There are notes of spice and smoke gathering above the charred oak. The peat is quiet and dry with a touch of black pepper and earth. The finish is of medium-length and slightly smoky with spice.

MACALLAN 1824 AMBER, 750ML

Product SKU: 756704
Amber is part of The Macallan's new no age statement range of Speyside single malts, which concentrates on colour. The theory is that by using 100% sherry casks and natural colour, the darker the whisky, the older and more complex

Nose: Soft aromatic vanilla, lemon and barley with hints of ginger.

Palate: Surprisingly thick and fruity compared to the nose. Golden sultanas, dates, apple peelings and a dusting of cinnamon.

Finish: Fragrant oak finish.

Overall: The second level in the 1824 Series, after the more citrus-led Gold.

MACALLAN 1824 SIENNA, 750ML

Product SKU: 761702
The third darkest and third most expensive bottling in the no age statement, sherry matured 1824 Series from The Macallan. Sienna is a naturally occuring pigment, referring not only to the hue of this expression but to the fact that The Macallan's whiskies are all released with no added colouring.

Nose: Noticeably bigger than Gold and Amber, orange peel, vanilla sugar and hot cross buns.

Palate: Raisins and dried apricots, ripe greengages, frozen currants.

Finish: Fruity and slightly spiced with a touch of anise.

Overall: This is where the 1824 Series becomes more intense.
