Glenfiddich Bourbon Barrel Reserve 14 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky
“Glenfiddich Bourbon Barrel Reserve 14 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky is aged carefully in ex-bourbon barrels for 14 years. After this initial aging, Glenfiddich’s Malt Master, Brian Kinsman, finishes the whisky in deeply charred new American Oak barrels supplied by The Kelvin Cooperage in Louisville, Kentucky. As a result, Glenfiddich Bourbon Barrel Reserve 14 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky has a distinctly sweet aroma, reminiscent of bourbon flavors such as cracked corn, ripe summer fruits and caramel. The palate is spicy, with intense woody influences shining through, and leads to a clean finish accented by vanilla, almonds, raisins and faint wisps of smoke.” Caskers.com
Balvenie 12 Year Old Single Barrel- First Fill
“Released in 2013, Balvenie’s Single Barrel First Fill was matured in first-fill bourbon casks for at least 12 years before bottling. These are limited edition bottlings, with each bottle being one of no more than 300 drawn from a single cask. Each is also hand-numbered and labelled with the cask reference number. A deliciously creamy, vanilla-rich whisky from Balvenie.
Nose: Toasted, sweet nose with all kinds of charred oak and spice. Hints of maple syrup and allspice, a little vanilla and sweet coffee.
Palate: A complex, thick palate with allspice and toffee apples. Cooked fruit and baking spices, hints of sponge cake and creamy caramel.
Finish: Long finish with lingering sweetness and spice.
Overall: An intense whisky with lots of influence from the cask. Great value for money too.” Masterofmalt.com
Old Pulteney 17 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky
“This 17 year old from the Pulteney distillery was a double gold winner at the 2006 San Francisco World Spirits Competition, matured in Spanish Oloroso and Pedro Ximenez casks.
Tasting Notes: The nose is clean and fresh with great balance. There is a profusion of fruit, from fruit salad with honeydew melon and pear to dried fruits, sultanas in a hot cross bun, fresh from the oven, a lightly salted butter melts over it with notes of fudge and a hint of something vaguely green. There is a lovely creaminess to the nose with notes of soft whirling smoke and crème fraîche. The palate is quite full and very sweet with sugared citrus peels and toffee. There are some notes of beeswax and honeycomb and fudge rises with malted barley and cereal sweetness. The finish is long with a herbal edge and a chewy oak.” Masterofmalt.com
