It’s getting to be that time of year again, so I thought that I’d give you some ideas for Xmas presents for that Scotch drinker in your life. Without further ado:
Talisker 25-Year-Old (SRP $199.99)
This highly praised, award-winning single malt is matured in American and European Oak refill casks and is an extremely limited release.
Brora 30-Year-Old (SRP $399.99)
This single malt whisky is vatted from a mixture of American Oak and European Oak refill casks. This 30-Year-Old malt is indisputably from the makers of Brora whisky, yet in an attractive, softer guise.
Caol Ila Unpeated 10-Year-Old (SRP $59.99)
This rare edition natural cask strength single malt is the fourth limited release of unpeated Caol Ila whisky but the first that’s been aged for ten years. Caol Ila Unpeated 10-Year-Old whisky is made from a batch produced only once a year from unpeated single malt.
Lagavulin 12-Year-Old (SRP $74.99)
This limited edition is the eighth of a series of special 12-year-old releases from the original distiller’s stocks. Lagavulin 12-Year-Old is a natural cask strength single malt whisky vatted from refill American Oak casks.
Port Ellen 30-Year Old (SRP $369.99)
This whisky is a limited edition natural cask strength single malt, the ninth of a very rare series. Annual allocation of Port Ellen ensures availability of this irreplaceable malt for just a little longer.
Royal Lochnagar Selected Reserve (SRP $209.99)
This single malt is one of the last remaining traditional distilleries where the whisky is entirely handcrafted. Not typically sold in the US, Royal Lochnagar Selected Reserve is an extraordinary find.
Talisker The Distillers Edition (SRP $79.99)
Talisker The Distillers Edition is the first of its kind to be released in the US since 1994 and is double-matured in Amoroso Sherry casks.
Oban The Distillers Edition (SRP $99.99)
Oban whisky is made using only the finest barley, malted to the distillery’s own particular specification. This single malt was double-matured in Montilla Fino wood, giving it a fruit-tinged elegance.
Lagavulin The Distillers Edition (SRP $109.99)
Lagavulin The Distillers Edition was double-matured in Pedro Ximenez Sherry wood casks. This whisky is a distinctive and distinguished dram, delicately balanced by the grape flavors from the Sherry wood.
Caol Ila The Distillers Edition (SRP $79.99)
This single malt is an extraordinarily stylish and complex double-matured expression of Caol Ila whisky. The Moscatel cask wood is not over-evident but richly flavored yet also finely balanced.
Dalwhinnie The Distillers Edition (SRP $74.99)
Dalwhinnie The Distillers Edition was double-matured in Oloroso Sherry casks, giving it a rich and spicy nose with a dry and oaky finish.
