Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 274: Ballantine’s Finest

Af en toe terug naar de basis kan zeker geen kwaad. Wij whiskyliefhebbers zijn immers verwend (gewoonlijk zorgen we hier zelf voor, natuurlijk) en gaan dan vaak voorbij aan de whisky’s die de categorie hebben groot gemaakt: blends. Dus laten we deze eens proberen: Ballantine’s Finest, nog steeds één van ’s werelds best verkopende Scotches.

Introducing Two New Single Casks To The Loch Fyne Range – Order Now – Scotch Whisky News

New Loch Fyne Single Casks

Two new single casks in The Loch Fyne range are available to order now. Say hello to Aultmore 12 Year Old and Glentauchers 11 Year Old.

Personalise your bottle with our bespoke engraving service, available on both of these bottles!

The Loch Fyne Aultmore 12 Year Old

This Speyside single malt is the second time we have released a 2007 sherry cask from Aultmore distillery. Bottled in 2019 at 12 years old, this expression is two years older than our last release and shows the benefit of this added maturity. Bottled at 57.9% abv, this single cask edition is limited to just 996 bottles.

£80.00
(£90.00 Engraved)

The Loch Fyne Glentauchers 11 Year Old

This single cask release from Glentauchers is our third bottling from the distillery at the heart of Speyside. Single malt from Glentauchers is hard to come by as the distillery doesn’t bottle its own make. Selected from our unique and exceptional cask collection, this expression was distilled in May 2008 and has spent 11 years maturing in a single sherry cask before bottling at 57.7% abv. Limited to just 954 bottles, we think it is up there with the very best Speyside has to offer!

£75.00
(£85.00 Engraved)

Springbank Society “New: Springbank 12yo CS + Rum Wood” – Scotch Whisky News

We are delighted to announce that the new Springbank Rum Wood and Springbank 12yo Cask Strength are available in the UK from tomorrow – Saturday 14th September 2019.

Springbank Rum Wood

The brand new Springbank Rum Wood release is 15yo and has been bottled at 51.0% ABV. There are approximately 9000 bottles available worldwide.

Tasting Notes

Nose: This a sweet tropical dram with coconut, pineapple and banana aromas. The sweetness continues with toasted marshmallows and sticky toffee pudding but is balanced with a hint of peat.

Palate: The sweetness transfers onto the palate. There’s the velvety smooth richness of decadent desserts such as a tropical meringue pavlova, creme brûlée, toffee apple pecan pie, along with citrus yuzu notes. There’s also an earthy quality from the Springbank dunnage warehouses.

Finish: The earthy quality now comes to the fore and finishes on a gentle dry note.

This bottling will be available in the UK from Saturday 14th September 2019 – please note that the release date in other markets and countries is likely to vary. For details of when the new Springbank 15yo Rum Wood is available near you please consult your preferred Springbank retailer or visit the “Where to Buy” section of our website to find a Springbank stockist.

  • The Campbeltown Cadenhead Shop will be selling this bottle for: £65.00
  • There will be no Society discount applicable on this bottling as it is not a core range product

Springbank 12yo Cask Strength

The new Springbank 12yo CS has been bottled at 57.1% ABV and was matured in 65% Bourbon Casks + 35% Sherry casks

Tasting Notes

Nose: Initially you can smell the refreshing herbs of oregano and lavender. This is followed by the sweetness of marzipan, honeycomb and fizzy sweets. In a nutshell, there’s an aroma of freshly baked donuts and orange marmalade.

Palate: It’s a lovely, warm butterscotch sponge with chantilly cream, as well as treacle, orange rind and salted pretzels. Then the typical Springbank coastal note of sea salt.

Finish: Velvety and refined finish with salted milk chocolate and Maraschino cherries.

This bottling will be available in the UK from Saturday 14th September 2019 – please note that the release date in other markets and countries is likely to vary.
