ScotchLast year's delicious offerings

Ballantine's Finest 80

Ballantine's Finest is a complex, refined and elegant blended scotch whisky. It is regarded as the taste to satisfy a modern style.

Black Bottle Scotch

Relaunched in 2013, Black Bottle Blended Scotch whisky now features a balanced mix of fruitiness and spice alongside the peaty Islay notes that the brand has been known for.

Duggan's Dew Scotch

Duggan's Dew is a brand of blended Scotch that was popular before Prohibition, and when found in the states during that time, was known as "The Real McCoy".

Glen Moray Classic Scotch

Glen Moray Classic is the distillery's entry-level single malt, aged for an average of seven years in ex-bourbon casks, of which a high percentage are first fill.

Islay Mist 8 Year Scotch

A subtle and seductive mixture of peat and seaweed. Mellow grain thins this out backed by a salty background and compelling sweet malt.

Laphroaig 10 Year Old

The standard bearer of Islay whisky, the sparkling gold colour and huge smoky notes let you know you are in for a treat. This full bodied, extra peaty whisky is distilled the same way as when Ian Hunter first did so 75 years ago. There is a hint of seaweed and a surprising sweetness on your way to a long and strong finish.

John Barr Black Reserve Scotch

A mix of malt and grain whiskies from the Highland and Speyside regions yields a fresh apple scent accented by a touch of vanilla. On the palate, this is smooth, light and easy-sipping, leading with vanilla and caramel, plus gentle peat smoke floating into a baking spice finish. Sip or mix. Best Buy.

McClelland's Islay

Full bodied and robust, you will notice lingering wood cinders of tar and smoke, with just a trace of vanilla and a subtle citrus note on the nose. The smokey nature of burnt oak chips is apparent as you enjoy a malty vanilla flavour, bringing balance to the overall taste. As you might expect, the finish is smoky and strong, with just a hint of iodine.
