First up is the Tomatin 12 Year Old single malt (43% ABV, £47), which is matured in a combination of ex-bourbon, ex-Spanish sherry, and traditional Scotch whisky casks. It offers a full-bodied and buttery finish, with initial aromas of heather, pine, and cedar, as well as sweeter notes of crème caramel, apples, pears, and mango.

Next, we have Aberlour’s 12 Year Old (43% ABV, £32), a classic example of Aberlour’s new make spirit matured with a subtle and well-balanced ex-Sherry cask influence.

Tobermory 25 Year Old (48.1% ABV, £350) draws on the distillery’s history and provides notes of blackcurrant jam, peaches, and lemon peel, with a lingering spice and hints of poached pears and nutmeg.

Deanston Virgin Oak (46.3% ABV, £36) is known for its uniquely waxy texture and features a delightfully sweet taste with notes of candied fruits, vanilla, and toffee balanced with heather honey and a lightly spiced oaky finish.

Lochlea 5 Year Old (£89.99) is an exclusive single malt whisky that represents the distillery’s legacy and pays tribute to the legacy of the poet Robert Burns.

Macallan Double Cask 12-Year-Old (40% ABV, £80) is a rich whisky that combines fruity citrus, caramel, spicy ginger, and nutmeg flavors.

Lastly, there’s Bladnoch Liora (52.2% ABV, £70), a part of the Classic Collection, matured in a combination of bourbon and new oak casks, offering flavors of fresh cut apples, toasted caramel, peppery spices, and fresh oak.
