Sazerac Rye Whiskey
July 2020

Sazerac Rye Whiskey

Sazerac Rye Whiskey is rumored to be made from a mash of 51% Rye, 39% Corn and 10% Malted Barley.

Following distillation, the whiskey is aged for a minimum of six years in the Kentucky heat, before a small batch of barrels are married together.

With aromas of rye, malt, cinnamon, cloves and black pepper. The aroma gives way to notes of chewy caramel, vanilla, spicy rye.

Sazerac Straight Rye earned a score of 94.5 points from Jim Murray's Whisky Bible, and a score of 95 points from Wine Enthusiast, which called it a "Best Buy."

In addition, it earned the Best American Rye Whiskey Award at the Los Angeles International Wine & Spirits Competition, and the Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

Sazerac Rye Whiskey has been reduced from £38.29 to £29.99. Click here to get a bottle while you can!

Virtual Herf - Camacho Nicaraguan Barrel Aged with George Rami
June 2020

Join us on the 2nd July for an exclusive Virtual Herf, we are going to smoke along with these new Camacho Nicaraguan Barrel Aged cigars packed full of flavour and intensity. 

Buy Sampler Now

Special guest George Rami, the Camacho Ambassador for the US, will be joining us for this exclusive Virtual Herf. George has excellent knowledge on anything Camacho and will be providing with a talk on the new Nicaraguan Barrel Aged and American Barrel Aged ranges. 

Zoom login details will be shared the day prior to the event.

Date: Thursday 2nd July, 6pm. 

Having pioneered and perfected the art of aging Original Corojo tobacco in Kentucky Bourbon barrels for American Barrel-Aged, Camacho’s master builders have continued their relentless quest, venturing further south to harness the wild flavors of Nicaragua. Starting with the sweet, spicy, and oaky flavors that define tobacco from this region, Estelí-grown Corojo is aged in some of the world’s oldest Nicaraguan rum barrels.

Once filled with bourbon, these well-seasoned rum barrels were hand selected for optimal humidity and add layers of complexity for an entirely unique experience.

Three fantastic cigars delicately aged in rum barrels to deliver a unique experience that'll delight any rum-loving cigar smoker.

In this gift set, you'll get one of the gordo, robusto and toro cigars delivered in a little gift box. Give 'em away or smoke 'em yourself, the choice is yours. The cigars themselves offer notes of roasted dark roast coffee, leather and oak with a little bit of sweetness thanks to those rum barrels. We call it a full-flavored smoke and we think you will too.

The cigars feature primarily corojo tobacco (from the Esteli region of a Nicaragua). There's a San Andres Mexican binder, H2000 wrapper and corojo fillers from Nicaragua, Honduras and the Dominican. If you're a rum connoisseur, the barrels used for the rum are Flor de Cana - a Managaua, Nicaragua based rum manufacturer that's well-known for quality liquor.

Not sure if this is what you're looking for? We also carry an American Barrel-Aged gift set by Camacho. The primary difference is the "American" version has American tobacco and is aged in bourbon rather than rum barrels.

This Sampler Contains:

1 x Camacho Nicaraguan Barrel Aged Robusto
1 x Camacho Nicaraguan Barrel Aged Toro
1 x Camacho Nicaraguan Barrel Aged Gordo

New World Cigar of the Week - Drew Estate Liga Privada Unico
April 2020

New World Cigar of the Week - Drew Estate Liga Privada Unico Dirty Rat

Our New World Cigar of the Week is the Drew Estate Liga Privada Unico Dirty Rat. This cigar has a ring gauge of 44, a length of 5 inches and is full in strength.

In the ongoing creation of the Liga Privada line, hundreds of different, distinct blends and vitolas are crafted in our endless search for the perfect smoke. Most samples are dismissed with only a rare, select few being deemed worthy, but regretfully due to tobacco limitations, costs, and construction limitations, most of these blends cannot be made into their own stand-alone line.

However, they are so perfect in flavour and aroma, Drew Estate continued to selfishly make them for themselves to smoke. This was not their desire; they wanted the Liga Privada connoisseur to enjoy the very same cigars that are smoked regardless of any reason.

With this in mind, Drew Estate created the Liga Privada Unico Serie – a home for these unique ones. All of the cigars within this series are not only different in size and blend, but they are extra special, extremely limited and exceptionally delicious.

Whisky of the Week - Dalmore 15 Year Old

Our whisky of the week commencing 06/04/2020 is the Dalmore 15 Year Old. The dalmore 15 is smooth, rich and well rounded: the epitome of The Dalmore house style - A robust, yet elegant spirit. Launched in 2007, the 15 Year Old is one of the most popular expressions in the core Dalmore range.

You will get aromas of delicious toffee, medium sherry and ripe oranges with hints of cinnamon, nutmeg and orange marmalade. and flavours of Mandarin, vanilla, ginger and crushed apples. Sherry and Christmas spices. Leaving you with a relatively long finish, nutty with hints of vanilla, yet more Christmas spices and oak.

This delicate and approachable vintage is initially matured for 12 years in American white oak ex-bourbon casks. The character is then achieved by splitting the whisky equally between three different sherry woods: Amoroso, Apostoles and Matusalem oloroso for a further three years. The spirit is finally married together in an upstanding sherry butt, allowing the flavours to infuse.

The Dalmore 15 has won gold Medal International Whisky Competition 2010 and Double Gold Medal San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2009.

Whisky of the Week - Rock Oyster

Our whisky of the week commencing 09/03/2020 is Rock Oyster

Containing the finest Malt Whiskies from Scotland’s Whisky islands, including those distilled on Islay, Arran, Orkney and Jura, it’s no wonder Master Blender Fred Laing says “If I could select just one dram to transport the Whisky enthusiast to the Islands of Scotland, it would be this Rock Oyster."

You will get aromas of wave soaked rocks and a salty oceanic, fresh influence. A hint of peat smoke, and an enticing sweetness. And an initially subtle palate that carries soft and rather sweet peat paralleled with smoke, honey, damp ash and develops with liquorice and late pepper.

Bottled at 46.8% alcohol strength and traditionally without colouring or chill-filtration, this Small Batch bottling has a truly maritime and oceanic character of sea-salt, sweet peat, smoke, honey and pepper.
