Macallan: Year of the Dog.
Limted Edition 2pk of 12yr Double cask
Macallan’s Chinese New Year Limited Edition Gift Box contains not one, but two identical, commemorative labeled, and attractively packaged 750ml bottles of Macallan Double Cask 12 Year Old whisky. Only 2,500 sets have been made available in the United States. The concept is that one bottle is meant to be enjoyed on a special occasion with friends and/or family, while the other bottle can be kept as a potential collectible. Or not.
PRICE: $160/per set. Contact the store for availability.
Glendalough 13 Year Old Irish Whiskey
“The first and only Irish whiskey to have been finished in Japanese mizunara oak casks. First aged in bourbon barrels, this single malt was then transferred to virgin mizunara barrels created by hand at Japan’s only independent cooperage. These lightly charred barrels have added vanilla, sandalwood and a touch of coconut to the whisky, while also increasing smoothness and depth of flavor. A fascinating 13 year old Irish single malt. Stunning stuff from the Glendalough.
Nose: Vanilla ice cream dotted with toffee chunks, orange oil, a touch of pine resin, maybe even a waft of toasted almond.
Palate: Definitely quite nutty – pecan, almond again and chocolate-coated Brazil nuts. Subtly floral at points.
Finish: Notes of coffee bean and honey go on and on.”
PRICE: $110/btl. Contact the store for availability.
Mortlach 12 Year Old ~”The Wee Witchie”
The Beast of Dufftown is back with an entry point 12yr that combines both ex-bourbon and ex-sherry-matured whisky. The balance of casks brings the distillery’s traditionally weighty, dried fruit character against fresh fruit and vanilla notes. The result is a success, combining the best of both of these worlds while still showing off the meaty Mortlach spirit.
PRICE: $66/btl ~ Just arrived. Contact the store for availability.
Aberlour: CASG ANNAMH
The first release in Aberlour’s Casg Annamh series ~ This expression (named after the Gaelic for “rare cask”) is matured in a trio of cask types, including European oak sherry casks and two sorts of American oak cask. This is a bold, flavorful and exceptionally balanced whisky full of fresh fruit, sherried nuttiness and woody spice.
Milky coffee, flame raisins and plenty of honeyed malt.
Golden Grahams, nectarines, cinnamon and strawberry jam.
Cooking spices, sugary biscuits and red apples.
PRICE: $75/btl. Contact the store for availability.
Once again, please contact the store if you are interested in any of these bottles as all are in limited supply. We are not responsible for any typographical errors or the fact that the NY Giants will most likely NOT draft a QB this year. Please contact the store with any questions.
