Looking for something really special this Christmas? Here are a few of our current favourites, that are either rare, collectible or tell a story.
Presented with a really cool label this whisky is a recreation of one available in the nineteenth century and was one of the original brands produced when the blended Scotch whisky industry boomed. A really smooth and gentle dram you would be hard pushed to realise it isn't a single malt, probably because it contains over 40% single malt as opposed to the 15% you find in the average blend.
Machrie Moor peated single malt from the Isle of Arran (Currently on special at $82 )
Tropical notes of pineapple, peaches, and distinctive coconut aroma dominate while a pleasant touch of peat reek in the background adds an interesting dimension to this vivacious combination. Machrie Moor is a legendary peat bog on Arran where several bronze age stone circles stand. One of the stone circles is known as Fingal’s Cauldron Seat, where sits a stone with a carved hole. The legendary warrior giant Fingal is said to have tethered his favourite dog Bran to this stone.
Stronachie 10 years (Currently on special at $70.50)
The Lost Distillery'. lost in the mists of time 3 bottles remained. In 2002 a small sample was syphoned off a bottle from 1904 and matched to a distillery that reflected the style, character and flavour of that original malt.
One of our all time best sellers
Glenfarclas Special Releases (Currently on special from $79.10)
Arran "Smugglers" Volume 1 - "The Illicit Stills" (Currently on special at $210 - 3 days only)
Now this is really cool! A bottle of whisky stowed in a book. We sampled this the other night and it is delicious. Not only does it look great, but it has already sold out in Europe. Historically, these limited edition Arrans become highly collectable, so either drink and enjoy, or sit on it for a few years as an investment.
Highland Park Freya $750
Highly collectible and sold out in many regions.
The third release in Highland Park's Valhalla Collection is Freya. Named after the Norse Goddess of Love, and protector of human souls, her magical cloak of feathers is said to create the Northern Lights over Orkney.
