The Whisky Connoisseur
This may be the ultimate gift for the whisky lover in your life. Not only are there less than 15 bottles here in the United States, this 40-year-old single malt hails from the coveted Islay distillery, Port Ellen. After its closure in 1983, a cult-like following grew for these whiskies as they truly are unlike any other Islay malts. This special release was matured in a European Oak ex-sherry butt, with the cask initially stored on Islay, until it was laid down to finish maturing in the vaults at Duncan Taylor’s HQ in Aberdeenshire in 2010. And at 52.4% the profiles of treacle toffee and stewed fruits shine with that whisper of peat. Not only is this an incredibly rare whisky that has garnered praise from numerous industry experts, it too is a special piece for any appreciator of fine spirits!
The Whisky Explorer
Established in 2012, The Glasgow Distillery set out to bring the rich distilling history of Glasgow back home. With a commitment to quality, the attention to detail shines through in each of their expressions. The 1770 Original is a lovely fruity and juicy dram, perfect for sharing with whisky lovers and the whisky curious. The 1770 Triple Distilled is a warm shortbread and citrus forward dram, which is delicious neat and in a hot toddy! And lastly, the 1770 Peated, is a robust meaty and peaty dram that is matured in Virgin Oak and Pedro Ximenez sherry! It's decadent and a perfect dram for those peat lovers in your life! The trio is a perfect gift for those looking to explore a range of flavours from a distillery that is making waves in the world of whisky!
The Whisky Loving Golfer
Ah yes, golf and whisky! These two things seem to go hand in hand! This 18-year-old release is to commemorate the career of three-time Masters champion Sir Nick Faldo who turned professional at the age of eighteen years old. Recurring throughout stages of his career, either by coincidence or symbolic of his destiny within the game, eighteen has come to represent this success and lasting legacy that will permeate through the history of Golf.
"This limited edition Black Bull 18-year-old holds special meaning in my heart commencing with my birth on the 18th of July 1957. This auspicious number came to represent milestones in my career as a professional golfer." - Sir Nick Faldo
With notes of Turkish delight and apple pie, this treat is a great way to end a round on your favorite course!
