SPEYSIDE
Cadenhead Small Batch Speyside 1991 24yo
700ml 50.50%
  Ret
$229.00
   
One of the newer distillery's in Speyside, as it was only completed in 1987! So to see one at this age is quite stunning. From Cadenheads, "The palate is rather good as we get to discover how well balanced drams from this great distillery can be. A nice soft slight creaminess, with sweet toffee apples and caramel liqueur coat the palate." Only 630 bottles released, all bourbon oak matured.

 
Cadenhead Small Batch Strathisla 1997 18yo
700ml 56.90%
  Ret
$169.00
   
Officially there is only one bottling of Strathisla available to the public. And you can only buy it at the distillery. So when an 18yo turns up, I do get a little excited. In Mr Watt's words of wisdom, "Oily and syrupy to start and then gingerbread with butter and hints of cooking apples, is this a bake off challenge in a bottle? If so then i am having another try. A second time with this dram gets us to a sublime creamy fruity note, Some delicate spice comes out with the addition of a few drops of water or if left to open for 10-20 mins then its a lot more fruity."

   
Cadenhead Small Batch Strathmill 1992 23yo
700ml 47.20%
  Ret
$229.00
   
A big distillery where most of its malt ends up in the giant J&B blend. More notes to follow,

 
Cadenhead Small Batch Tamdhu 1991 22yo
700ml 54.00%
  Ret
$215.00
   
Another curious whisky: this is an independent bottling of a distillery owned by an independent bottler, Ian MacLeod! In Cadenhead's words, "Nose: Lots of honey, almonds, vanilla and shortbread. Palate: Some olive oil, very grassy and quite herbal. Finish: Lots of salted caramel, more shortbread and some citrus notes."

 
Cadenhead Small Batch Tamdhu 1991 24yo
700ml 54.40%
  Ret
$239.00
   
Once the backbone of White Horse and Vat 69, Tamdhu not stands in the same stable as Glengoyne. Notes to follow.

   
Cadenhead Small Batch Tamnavulin 1992 22yo
700ml 52.90%
  Ret
$215.00
   
A big distillery with another curious, maybe even dubious history: Founded 1966 and to date it has had 9 different owners! Tasting notes from Wm Cadenhead, "Nose: Some oaty notes to start, some pistachio nuts and a little toffee. Palate: Quite buttery, lots of honey notes and pancake mix. Some grassier notes also with a touch of fennel. Finish: Lots of creamy vanilla notes, sweet toffee and a hint of lemongrass."

 
Cadenhead Small Batch Tormore 1984 30yo
700ml 55.80%
  Ret
$419.00
   
A big Chivas owned distillery that was a late starter, as it was built in 1958. Can't say I've seen many official or Indie bottlings from this impressive looking distillery. Being a 30yo strongly suggest a big degree of rarity. In Cadenheads words, "Soft toffee with ginger spice, a little honeycomb and a hint of ripe pair. Lingering warm spices." 432 bottles released world wide.

   
Duthies Aultmore 13yo
700ml 46.00%
  Ret
POA
     
Nose: Like a Scottish hillside on a summer day. Very lively notes of dew-soaked grass, heather and just a hint of oak. In their words, "Palate: A very flavoursome whisky. Initially peppery with hints of cumin and basil, opens out to release creamy vanilla and a pleasant malty flavour. Finish: More oak and malt as the spices return to provide a long-lasting finish."

 
Duthies Strathmill 19yo
700ml 46.00%
  Ret
$122.00
   
Now this is a turn up for me, as it has been quite some time since I've tried a Strathmill. This is another hidden Diageo gem, usually attributed with the J&B blends. In their words, "Nose: Orange liqueur mixed in marzipan. Chocolate and cream. Palate: Malty and sweet, like cola bottle sweeties. American cream soda. Finish: The cream soda continues through, right on the tip of your tongue." (pic indicative only)

 
Glendronach 12yo Original
700ml 43.00%
  Ret
$120.00
   
The lead in malt for this venerable sherry dominted brand. And the casks? They are all PX and Oloroso. How about that at such a good price! Intheir words, "Rich, creamy, silky-smooth. Warm, rich oak and sherry sweetness, full mouth feel, raisins and soft fruits. Spicy with medium length and a dry finish."

 
Glendronach 14yo Virgin Oak Finish
700ml 46.00%
  Ret
$280.00
   
New to Oz in Jan 2017. In the past we would have called the use of virgin oak in maturing whisky either a tragedy, a little odd, a tad weird and for most, just plain wrong. We also thought that the use of new oak was "illegal". Well it "aint" as our American cousins would say. It never has been illegal, but it was frowned upon. But this Glendro is an each way bet. For you see it was initially matured in Euro oak, presumably it had sherry in it? Then topped dressed in new American oak. Has been described as spicy with plenty of tropical and citrus fruit flavours. Quite lively for its 46%.

 
Glendronach 21yo Parliament Sherry Casks
700ml 48.00%
  Ret
$260.00
   
The 2017 release of their ever popular and now reasonably priced full sherry, both PX and Oloroso, matured malt. Big, rich and mouthfiulling as these new Glendronachs have been. Bravo I say! I think you know why it is called Parliament? If not it is the collective noun for a group of...

 
Glenfarclas 105 Cask Strength
700ml 60.00%
  Ret
POA
     
The granddaddy of all cask strengths, can be a bit variable, but I don't mind that. This current batch shows lots of fresh sherry flavours, drying oak and the alcohol is intense but not hot. Go on, take a big mouthful and see what cask strength is all about! Buxton's 101.

 
Glenfarclas 12yo
700ml 43.00%
  Ret
$160.00
   
This caught me by surprise at a recent 2012 tasting with Ian McWilliam from Glenfarcla. The 8yo is basic, the 10yo is not bad but the 12yo...what a big step up. Crisp, well defined, great maltiness and fresh sherried fruit notes. A real treat at a decent price. Even Murray thinks so, rating it 94pts and correctly mentioning the ice cream type texture. He also describes it as, "What a sensational success!"

 
Glenfarclas 15yo
700ml 46.00%
  Ret
$170.00
   
GIFT Big, old fashioned full on sherry malt that is mightily impressive, plenty of dried fruits/ Christmas cake flavours, spicy oak and a very sumptuous palate. And it lingers & lingers. And 15 years of maturation is just about perfection for this malt. Bravo! And as a bonus gift, every bottle comes with a mini of the famed 21 and 25yo!

 
Glenfarclas 17yo
700ml 43.00%
  Ret
POA
     
GIFT Boy oh boy! Was this a stunning standout at a recent Glenfarclas masterclass (June 2015). And what I love about this full sherried 'Farclas...it's so different from the either the 12yo and the venerable 15yo. My notes form the night, "Low, subdued sherry but excellent and yet solid mouthfeel. Plenty of fresh barley notes, very well integrated wood, which appears as fresh oak on the nose, and a palate jammed packed with honey, kitchen spice and dried citrus fruit flavours. Long, fresh sherry at the end that finished crisply but still lingers and lingers. Big ACE! for me." For Xmas 2015 it comes packed with 2 x minis 21yo & 25yo.

 
Glenfarclas 2007 9yo Whisky & Wisdom 1st Fill Sherry Butt
700ml 60.50%
  Ret
$380.00
   
Every so often and absolute doozy comes in through the door. And when it's young (read lively & fresh), full sherry (1st fill Euro barrels), cask strength (read intensity) and has a pedigree 9it's from Glenfarclas) you really do have to take notice. And this one squarely hit me in the face! It just has about everything a whisky imbiber dreams of: complexity, richness and power.

 
Glenfarclas 25yo
700ml 43.00%
  Ret
POA
     
Another classic sherry monster from the good folks at Glenfarclas. In their words, "Nose: Complex, yet refined, delicately peated, with fresh tempting aromas of marmalade, honey, freshly ground coffee, sherry and nuts. Some oaky tannins. Flavour: Full-bodied and robust, the sherry and the oak fight for your attention yet neither is overpowering. A powerful nutty smokiness. Finish: Intense, long lasting, dry smoky and malty. A beautiful dark Belgium chocolate taste at the back of your mouth to complete the flavour of the 25 Years Old. Comment: A great after-dinner whisky so rich and full that it is a dessert in itself, with a finish that goes on forever. " July 2105 notes from the Big G, "Old school,yet spicy and bright. Massively long and wide palate."

 
Glenfarclas 511.19s.0d Family Reserve
700ml 43.00%
  Ret
$280.00
   
A special release from Glenfarclas to help celebrate 150 years of the Grants owning Glenfarclas. Predominantly first fill sherry oak but a no age statement 43% dram that should be really tasty but in a lighter style, more like the current 17yo which is a gem. From WhiskyNotes DE, "soft but not weak. A whole lot drier than expected. Still some honey and golden raisins but also orange marmalade, nutty notes, cinnamon powder and nutmeg. Light toasted oak and a hint of burnt cake. Funny how the palate is more earthy and savoury than the nose suggested."

 
Glenfiddich 15yo Solera Reserve
700ml 40.00%
  Ret
POA
     
A solera is a system of fractional blending from a number of casks. Once full, what you take out from the last cask, which is to be bottled, you replace at the top with new spirit. Famously used in the production of sherries as it add uniformity to the style. So here we have one of only a handful of whiskies that are matured in this way. Kind of makes sense to me. And I believe it is a mix of bourbon, sherry and surprise, surprise....virgin oak.
