We have a number of different kits available, so please add a note into the order telling us which one you would like sent to you otherwise one will be sent at random (don’t worry though, they’re all good!).
Each box, described as a whisky tasting in a box, contains six whiskies around a certain theme… the idea is that you try whiskies you likely would not otherwise try in order to expand your whisky enjoyment and flavour repertoire
Pack options are:
“Island Fling”, a tasting tour of Scotland’s wonderful whisky Islands, featuring three famous Islay distilleries, two Island drams and one mainland that tastes like an Island whisky.
“A Sherry Good Dram” features a tasty selection of five premium Scotch whiskies that have been matured in sherry casks, with a hard-to-find, out-of-production English whisky
“The Glen Collection”, all independently bottled whiskies from distilleries with ‘Glen’ in their name – some belters in here including a Glen Keith which is one of my favourite lesser known distilleries
Bartels Whisky – Highland Laird Bruichladdich 2005 – Aged 11 Years – The Ileachs (Islay locals) historically favoured Bruichladdich, and with good reason. A unpeated cask strength beaut from this fantastic indie bottler.
The Arran Malt – Aged 10 Years – Arran is a stunning Island, once home to 50 distilleries, now only one. Survival of the fittest? This dram says yes! Sweet, fruity and light.
Clan Denny – Caol Ila 2011 – Aged 6 Years – A savoury smoky coastal affair, typical of Islay whiskies, from indie bottler Clan Denny – a sister brand to Douglas Laing.
Highland Park – 12 Year Old – Viking Honour – Famous for its heather-honey-smokiness and hailing from Scotland’s northern-most distillery on the Island of Orkney. Also packed with Vikings.
Douglas Laing – Old Particular Ardmore 21 – You caught us! Not an Island whisky, but easily mistaken for one due to its wonderful peaty character
Bunnahabhain – 18 Years Old – Probably the Dram Team’s favourite Islay distillery – this 18 year old has a wonderful sherry influence, rich fruits and spice, with a salty coastal tang – amazing stuff!
Douglas Laing – Provenance – Glengoyne, Aged 9 Years – A lovely light take on sweet, fruity Glengoyne from this fantastic independent bottler.
Skene Whisky – Cask Classics – Glentauchers 2008 – Doesn’t often see the light of day as a single malt as the Ballantine’s blend it typically is destined for is so madly popular. Lucky us!
Clan Denny – Glenburgie 2009, Aged 7 Years – Another excellent Ballentine’s blend component, independently bottled as a single malt – lucky us again!
That Boutique-y Whisky Co. – Glenallachie – Batch 2, Aged 8 Years – A small batch indie bottling of this gorgeously light-but-malty spirit, and at cask strength for good measure.
Bartels Whisky – Highland Laird – Glen Ord 2010, Aged 8 Years – An ABV whopper that explodes with flavour when you add a splash of water, becoming buttery and creamy to taste.
Berry Bros & Rudd – Glen Keith 1994, Aged 23 Years, Cask 157680/2 – A wonderfully complex dram thanks to its 23 years in the cask.Exceptionally well-aged whisky.
