RAISE A TOAST TO CHRISTMAS WITH A FINE CHRISTMAS MALT!
This Christmas Malt brings festive cheer,
as we reach a merry time of year.
Soft and fruity, with smoke and spice,
all the things which make Christmas nice.
Now we have this Fine Christmas Malt,
good company and a glass or two,
it’s time to stand and raise a toast:
Here’s from us to all of you.
The release of a special festive whisky is by now a firm tradition at The Whisky Exchange and this year’s release, A Fine Christmas Malt 2021, provides a very splendid liquid with which to toast the Christmas season!
A whisky that cannot be found anywhere else, this delicious 16-year-old Highland malt will take you on a rollercoaster of festive flavours, from fruit cake notes to Christmas-stocking apples and oranges, sweet and savoury biscuits, and hint of chocolate orange.
A whisky to inspire us to feel the spirit of Christmas this year – enjoy while unwrapping your presents, or share it as a gift with your favourite whisky lover.

Nose: Barbecued apples, and a touch of lemon, orange and pineapple jelly to start. Smoky chocolate notes develop, with orange citrus, damp oak, singed raisins, and dark and spicy fruit cake building. Candied cherries and mince pies hide at the back with dark-chocolate-covered orange segments.
Palate: Chocolate biscuits, orange oil, sweet apple and soft wood smoke lead. Hazelnut-studded chocolate notes roll through the middle joined by a touch of forest floor, oat cakes and toasted rye bread. Brown sugar, baking spices, oatmeal-and-raisin cookies and fruit cake follow.
Finish: Soft charcoal notes linger as candied apple, chocolate biscuits and cinnamon spice slowly fade.
Comment: A softly smoky rollercoaster through festive flavours, from the more traditional fruit cake and pudding notes to Christmas-stocking apples and oranges, sweet and savoury.
