The Spey Cascade single malt Scotch whisky from the Singleton of Dufftown is created with a balanced mix of whiskies aged in both bourbon and Sherry casks. The end result is warming with baked orchard fruits, demerara sugar and golden barley. Perfect for early evening dramming, this one - laid back with good flavour behind it. The folks at the Singleton of Dufftown also say Spey Cascade combines well with chocolate truffles, too. If you're feeling decadent, go for it.
A bright young Laphroaig whose maturation has been sped up by ageing in quarter casks. This displays soft sweetness and a velvety feel when first tasted, then the intense peatiness so unique to Laphroaig comes bursting through. A terrific whisky and great value.
Dalwhinnie Winter's Gold is an innovative bottling from Diageo. Made using whisky distilled in the cold Scottish winter, it is created to be served from the freezer, delivering richness and sweetness as the glass warms up. Honeyed with a hint of peat.
