Bunnahabhain Ceobanach Single Malt Scotch Whisky Bunnahabain Ceobanach Single Malt Scotch Whisky

This really hits the spot. Maritime notes of sea breeze are joined by warming spices, creamy citrus and peppery touches on the mid-palate, which then follows onto the finish. Really smoky up until the end. A very enjoyable whisky.

For the Ceobanach (pronounced 'kyaw-bin-och'), Bunnahabhain have taken inspiration from the days when the distillery used to produce heavily peated spirit.Meaning 'Smoky mist' in Scots Gaelic, Ceobanach most definitely packs a rich, smoky profile that classic Islay whisky fans will want to pay attention to.


Springbank 12 year old cask strength single malt Scotch Whisky

A Bold and beautifully rounded whisky with more vanilla alongside pepper notes, stewed apples, pear drops, orange marmalade and tropical fruits. It has that classic Speyside long finish which also reveals notes of liquorice and salted Caramel.

With 70% of the whisky being matured in Sherry casks and the remaining 30% drawn from bourbon casks, Springbank is normally lightly peated, quite distinctive and is already is a favourite amongst Campbeltown whisky fans.

Craigellachie 1997 Connoisseurs Choice Single Malt Craigellachie 1997 Connoisseurs Choice Single Malt Scotch Whisky

A lovely light and fruity Single Malt with hints of lemon and kiwi, all in all a nice well-balanced dram! A chilli spice initially on the palate, raspberries and dark chocolate flavours develop with a lingering hint of tobacco.

This 1997 vintage Craigellachie Single Malt Scotch Whisky which was matured in refill American hogshead and refill bourbon barrels until 2014, when it was bottled at an ABV of 46%.

Edradour 15 Year old 'Fairy Flag' Whisky

An amazingly aged whisky. Perfect for impressing any client. It is slightly dry and fruity with a good helping spice which comes alive with ginger, nutmeg and cooked banana, coconut and red grapes. Rich with a Christmas cake-y dram with touches of sherry soaked raisins dusted with delicious dark chocolate servings. Best enjoyed unadulterated.

A 15 year old, special bottling of single malt scotch whisky from the Edradour distillery in the Highlands released in honour of an upcoming Scottish film, 'Fairy Flag.'It was matured for 8 years in ex-Bourbon casks, then transferred to Oloroso Sherry casks for another 7 years of maturation.
