SPEYSIDE
Glenfiddich 21yo Gran Reserva Caribbean Rum
700ml 40.00%
  Ret
$270.00
   
Nigel, an old and sadly passed away mate, introduced me to this dram and having long vowed to never to carry this brand, as I really can't compete against the "Great Twosome", I thought this dram was really quite good. Subtle, well put together, very polished, nothing out of place and yet the rum notes add a pleasing degree of interest and complexity. The whisky was only in the rum casks for 4 months.

 
Glenlivet 15yo Single Cask Edition Morinsh
700ml 56.30%
  Ret
$320.00
   
Well, wonders never cease! I normally have little to do with the whiskies of George & JG Smith, but a limited edition of 270 bottles (those so well used words) did catch my attention, mainly because it is at cask strength. From WhiskyNick, it appears that this dram is an exclusive bottling for an Aussie retailer, it’s all bourbon oak, to which he describes it as classic Glenlivet at full strength. I thought “classic Glenlivet” had a tad of sherry oak in it. I have heard described as, “bold, honey and ripe pears, rich, luxurious dark chocolate and sweet ginger flavours.” Sounds like a sherry cask to me. . My notes to follow shortly.

 
Glenlivet 18yo
700ml 43.00%
  Ret
POA
     
The ever faithful Glenlivit 18. What can I really say. A mix of sherry and bourbon oak and a style that would not offend even the most hardened whisky tragic.

 
Knockando 12yo 1992
750ml 43.00%
  Ret
$140.00
   
An older bottling of this medium body, somewhat gentle Speysider. It belongs in the Diageo stable and is a major component of the J&B blended whisky.

 
Macallan 12yo Big Sherry Oak
1750ml 43.00%
  Ret
$780.00
   
It’s Macallan… It’s Sherried… It’s Huge! 11750ml of pure sherried joy. This is a dying breed. Age statements are on the way out and getting hold of sherry Maccas in Oz has become an almost impossible task, so this 750ml bottling comes from the USA. The nose is that inviting mixture of dried fruits, a hint of furniture polish, crisp malt and kitchen spicy oak. Brilliant, as the sherry fruit flavours appear not to be too fresh or too cloying. Big palate, long palate, there’s that famed Macca heavy weight spirit, grippy oak. The sherry influence is on the milder side, thus showing off that magic weighty Macallan spirit to its fullest. Lingering. Very much a treat.

 
Mortlach 18yo
500ml 43.40%
  Ret
$480.00
   
How long has it been since you've seen a Mortlach with such age? For me, a very long time. Big meaty Mortlach meets first fill and refill sherry casks. From Tom Canavan on Whisky Notes, "Mouth: dried fruits, raisins and orange peel again, with plenty of spices now. Gingerbread, soft pepper. Brown sugar and milk chocolate. Some roasted nuts as well. Finish: long, still showing roasted notes, chocolate and spices."

 
Mortlach Rare Old
500ml 43.40%
  Ret
$165.00
   
This is art of the new incarnation of the fabulously rich, flavoursome and very hard to come by Mortlach. Matured both in bourbon and sherry casks. Be warned, it comes in a 500ml bottle. From Whisky For Every One, "On the palate this feels robust, a little feisty and hot. There is a lovely battle going on between the sweet, savoury and spicy notes. First comes delicious sweet notes of toffee, salted caramel and honeycomb. These are quickly joined by a luscious rich fruity characteristic which is reminiscent of a mix of raisins, dried mango and spiced orange. Underneath are notes of vanilla, crystalised ginger and vanilla pods, all of which are backed up and complimented by a distinct savoury characteristic. This manifests itself as a yeasty, slightly meaty note which adds depth, warmth and complexity. The finish is long and becomes increasingly dry with a lovely tobacco leaf/cigar-like earthiness coming through to compliment the sweeter elements."

 
Riverstown Auchroisk 2009 6yo
700ml 61.40%
  Ret
$150.00
   
Riverstown is an offshoot of Robin Tucek's Blackadder range. Most if not all Auchroisk is destined for the J&B blended whisky brand and the spirit has always has been a brisk style of malt. Not often seen as an official or and indie bottling. One retailer has described it as, "powerful, yet elegant, slightly sweet, with notes of caramel, fruit and light nuances of peat."

   
HIGHLANDS
Balblair 2000 2nd Release
700ml 43.00%
  Ret
POA
     
Entry level, youngish dram that has all the hallmarks of Balblairs creamy palate. From WhiskyNotes, "Quite light, sweet and fruity with some muesli, peaches, pineapple and white grapes. A light spicy edge (soft pepper and sweet ginger). Finish: still fruity, but it takes the vanilla and spices a bit further. Balblair 2000 plays around with notes of youngish whisky, but in a smooth and entertaining way. One to revisit when the summer returns!"

 
Blackadder Black Snake Vat 1 Fourth Venom
700ml 59.90%
  Ret
$160.00
   
This is one of Robin Tucek's clever concoctions, as it is derived from a solera system. Here's how one retailer explains it, "The latest concoction of John Tucek, take some barrels single malt whisky, of which the distillery is not disclosed, let it mature into two ex oloroso sherry casks and through the so-called solera system the casks still be emptied for 2/3 from below and filled again from above. Soft and supple, long palate with gentle kitchen spice and dried fruits. Hint of peat.

 
Blackadder Black Snake Vat 6 Second Venom
700ml 59.30%
  Ret
$160.00
   
This is one of Robin Tucek's clever concoctions, as it is derived from a solera system. Here's how one retailer explains it, "The latest concoction of John Tucek, take some barrels single malt whisky, of which the distillery is not disclosed, let it mature into two ex oloroso sherry casks and through the so-called solera system the casks still be emptied for 2/3 from below and filled again from above. Nose : Full, rich red fruit with Islay influences. Taste: Spicy, cherries, light oak and warming. Finish: Long, tasteful and delicious."

 
Blackadder Raw Cask Peat Reek
700ml 61.30%
  Ret
POA
     
This is Blackadder's big peat monster possibly made up a of one or a number of highly peated & assertive whiskies. And being Raw Cask, means you get the added bonus of the bits in the bottom of the bottle. Tasting notes to follow.

 
Bushmills 16yo Triple Distilled Three Woods Single Malt Whiskey
700ml 40.00%
  Ret
$270.00
   
It's Irish, it's a triple and it's a single malt. Matured in ooroso shery, bourbon and port wine casks.Soft and gentle does it.

 
Cadenhead Aberfeldy 1997 17yo
700ml 46.00%
  Ret
$145.00
   
The heart and soul of Dewar's big selling blended whisky but as a single malt, it's one we don't often see. So an aged, indie bottling should be a real treat. In their words, "Some herbal notes: sage and basil along with some soft woodiness. Some dried pineapple, white chocolate and more spiced apple notes to finish."

   
Cadenhead Single Cask Royal Brackla 1984 30yo
700ml 54.10%
  Ret
$449.00
   
With the recent release of the revitalised Royal Brackla brand, with this dram you can see what the original Brakla was all about. Fully matured in ex bourbon hogsheads, this dram has been described by Mark Watt at Cadenhead as, "Soft oakiness, orange liqueur and a faint hint of spice. Quite full bodied with chocolate and runny toffee." 192 released world wide.

   
Cadenhead Single Cask Teaninich 1983 32yo
700ml 47.50%
  Ret
$439.00
   
A massive, 10mill lts per annum, Diageo owned distillery where almost all of the production goes into Johnnie Walker. The only official release has been a 10yo Flora & Fauna. So a 32yo, ex bourbon hogshead matured dram appears in my warehouse. Wow! From Cadenhead's head honcho, Mark Watt, "More orangey notes emerge along with some distant perfumed smoke, green tea; basil and oregano." Only 162 bottles released world-wide.

   
Cadenhead Small Batch Blair Athol 1997 19yo
700ml 54.50%
  Ret
$165.00
   
This distillery's fame lies in the fact it one of the most visited distilleries in Scotland. What the...!? Because it is the home of the Bells. Not often seen as either an official or indie bottling. From Cadenhead, "Brambles, lingering creaminess, with more pineapple and some flinty notes. After dinner dram for those of us who are less keen on the western malts, This is a big dram but not overpowering in any way. So nice to get a dram like this."

   
Cadenhead Small Batch Deanston 1994 19yo
700ml 56.40%
  Ret
$149.00
   
Deanston! What the f....I've never liked in the past as they are usually sulfured, hard and awkward in style. But this is different: it's so clean! No wonder they got rid of this barrel, it would not have suited their official style in the 1990's. In their words, "Nose Waxy fruits and green apple skins along with some cold meats. Lots of lemon notes, some olives and fig chutney. Palate Spiced apples, green bananas, whole limes and coconut milk. Fresh cut grass and lots of fragrant herbs. Finish White wine, watermelon, cloves and a little oily." Only 846 bottles produced.

 
Cadenhead Small Batch Royal Brackla 1997 18yo
700ml 54.40%
  Ret
$179.00
   
Official bottlings, besides the old Flora & Fauna range, were only released in 2015, so what a surprise to a see a well-aged RB hit shelves. All bourbon matured and tasting like, "apples and tangerines with peaches and a slight lime note. Peppery finish." Only 402 bottles released.

 
Cadenhead Small Batch Teaninich 2006 10yo
700ml 46.00%
  Ret
$110.00
   
Right! Hands up those you have tried Teaninich (tee - ni - nick) recently? Not me, that's for sure. This distillery has an unusual method of mashing, that involves filtering rather than using a mash tun. Look it ip. Another big Diageo distillery, all bourbon cask matured and outturn for this bottling was 684 bottles. From Mark Watt, "Butterscotch, caramel, goosberries and toffee."
