||Glenmorangie – 25 Year Old Quarter Century
Country: Scotland Region: Highlands
Age: 25 Year Old Strength: 43%
Summary: The rarest and oldest member of the Glenmorangie family, this is a single malt of notable class and intensity. Full bodied and sumptuous, the Glenmorangie 25 Years Old is the real embodiment of our continued dedication to perfection. Matured in a range of casks including American white oak, Oloroso sherry casks and French Burgundy casks before being blended back together in exact quantities, the Glenmorangie Quarter Century is complex, bursting with deep flavours, and a perfect testimony to our knowledge and experience. Aroma: The first impression is of dried fruits – blackberries, cherries, plums and dates interwoven with chocolate and coffee. Taste: Big and full-flavoured. Deep forest fruits burst on the tongue with mouth-watering blackberries and redcurrants emerging with bramble jelly. Finish: Long and gentle, with brambles and warming spices. Colour: Old gold.

||Mosstowie – 33 Year Old Gordon Macphail Rare Edition
Country: Scotland Region: Speyside
Age: 33 Year Old Strength: 46%
Summary: For over 25 years Miltonduff Distillery produced 2 different Single Malt Whiskies. In 1955 due to the increased demand within Hiram Walker for different styles of whisky, a chemical engineer, Alistair Cunningham designed the Lomond Still. This type of still had a wide neck which housed three rectifying plates. These plates were used to vary the amount of reflux that took place within the still thus altering the spirit produced. The plates could either be filled with cool liquid or left dry. They could be rotated – the horizontal position would maximise reflux while the vertical position would reduce reflux. Due to increased demand for Ballantines Blend in the 1980s, the Mosstowie stills were altered to produce Miltonduff – the key component of Ballantines.

||Port Ellen – 34 Year Old Gordon Macphail Rare Edition
Country: Scotland Region: Islay
Age: 34 Year Old Strength: 46%
Summary: Port Ellen is one of the three main villages on Islay and one of the two ferry terminals on the island. The distillery was expanded in the 1960s and temporarily closed in 1983. Its white painted buildings form a street close to the seashore. Only peat which was dug in the district was used in the drying and the water was taken from two lochs in the nearby hills, the principal one used for distilling purposes being noted locally for its purity. Next to the distillery is a modern Maltings which exudes pungent peat smoke.
AROMA WITHOUT WATER: Smoky and liquorice influences with fruity undertones and hints of pear. A fresh sea breeze aroma.
TASTE WITHOUT WATER: Sweet, with peat smoke elements emerging followed by hints of aniseed. Some hints of kippers linger.
AROMA WITH WATER: Butterscotch and pear, with slight medicinal notes. Reminiscent of a wooden fish box.
TASTE WITH WATER: Dry ash flavours balanced with salty brine notes.
