First, a little lesson on what exactly makes a whisky “Scotch”, courtesy of good ol’ Wikipedia:

“Single Malt Scotch is single malt whisky made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. As with any Scotch whisky, a single malt Scotch must be distilled in Scotland and matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most single malts are matured longer).

“Malt” indicates that the whisky is distilled from a “malted” grain. Several types of grains can be malted (for example, barley, rye and wheat are all grains which can be malted); however, in the case of single malt Scotch, barley is always the only grain used.

“Single” indicates that all the malts in the bottle come from a single distillery. Bottlings containing malt whisky from multiple distilleries are called “blended malt”.

Until the Scotch Whisky Regulations 2009 (SWR 2009), the word “blended” only appeared (in the context of Scotch whisky) on bottles of whisky that contained a mixture of both barley and non-barley grain whisky, but this is no longer the case. Under the terminology established by the SWR 2009, a “blended malt Scotch whisky” is a mixture of single malt Scotch whiskies, not a mixture of malted barley whisky and non-barley whisky; those are called “blended Scotch whisky”, without the word “malt”. The term “blended malt” replaced “vatted malt” used under the prior labelling conventions.

The age statement on a bottle of single malt Scotch is the number of years the whisky spent maturing in cask. As very few whiskies are bottled from a single cask the age statement reflects the age of the youngest malt in the mix.”

The Balvenie 15 year at Liquor Barn!

The Balvenie 15 year

The Balvenie 15 year

The Balvenie Single Barrel is a 15 year old single malt which is drawn from a single traditional oak whisky cask of a single distillation. Whilst each cask is subtly different, The Balvenie Malt Master selects only those casks which have the essential characteristics of The Balvenie Single Barrel, particularly honey, vanilla and oaky notes. Each bottling forms a limited edition of no more than 350 hand-numbered bottles – so each bottle is unique and unrepeatable.


TASTING NOTES
NOSE
Fragrant aroma of vanilla, honeyed sweetness, hints of heather and dry oaky notes.
TASTE
Rich and complex, suggestive of years of careful ageing, it has a honeyed maltiness with vanilla, oak flavours and delicate spice notes.



Glenmorangie Scotch - 18 Year at the Liquor Barn

Glenmorangie 18 Year

Glenmorangie 18 Year

The 18 Years Old is a single malt Scotch whisky of serious distinction. Once it has spent fifteen years maturing in American white oak casks approximately 30% is transferred into Spanish Oloroso casks to spend a further three years maturing. Then, when both elements have reached 18 years, we blend them back together to create a whisky with a rich bouquet and full, rounded flavour.



Tasting Notes:
Aroma
Rich, rounded and sweet with dried fruits and a complex floral fragrance.
Taste
The taste is balanced between honey, malt and flowery scents. Dates and figs emerge in the background with a hint of wood smoke.
Finish
The finish is long and enticing with the sweetness of dried fruit and subtle dryness of Oloroso nuttiness.
Colour
Honeyed gold


Macallan 18 Year Scotch at The Liquor Barn

Macallan 18 Year

Macallan 18 year

The Maccallan Sherry Oak is exclusively matured for a mimimum of 18 years in Spanish oak casks, handcrafted and sherry seasoned in Jerez, Spain.  This delivers a classic Maccallan style, wonderfully rich in colour with dried fruits, spice, and chocolate orange.

In his book, Kindred Spirits, international Whisky authority Paul Pacult describes The Macallan 18 as “simply the best 18 Year Old single malt around,” and we wholeheartedly agree. The continued use of finest Golden Promise barley and the insistence on Sherry oak casks from Jerez, Spain are part of what goes into making this Whisky so singularly unique. In terms of bang for your buck, this is pretty darn perfect.


Dalwhinnie Scotch - 15 Year

Dalwhinnie 15 Year

Dalwhinnie 15 year

When the water you start with comes from the highest mountain source of any malt, you expect something rather fine. And Dalwhinnie™, for whisky writer Roger Voss a “surprisingly soft whisky…from Scotland’s highest, most remote distillery”, does not disappoint. The source, Lochan an Doire-Uaine, (Gaelic for “lake in the green grove”), lies at 2,000 feet in the Drumochter Hills. From it, all the pure spring water used in distilling Dalwhinnie™ flows over rich local peat through Allt an t’Sluic, the distillery burn. No other distillery may use the water from this source – therefore no other distillery is able to yield Dalwhinnie’s™ uniquely clean, accessible, malty-sweet taste, giving way to a smooth and smoky Highland mouthfeel.


Tasting Notes:
Strength: 43% ABV
Appearance: Gold.
Nose: A big, crisp, dry and very aromatic nose with hints of heather and peat.
Body: Light to medium.
Palate: Smooth, soft and lasting flavours of heather, honey sweetness and vanilla followed by deeper citrus-fruit flavours and hints of malted bread.
Finish: Long, lingering, surprisingly intense finish that starts sweetly, then gives way to smoke, peat and malt.


The Dalmore 15 Year at The Liquor Barn

The Dalmore 15 year

The Dalmore 15 Year

Twelve years maturing in American white oak ex-bourbon casks, then a three year finish in three different sherry woods – Amoroso, Apostoles and Matusalem oloroso. A robust, yet elegant spirit.






Tasting Notes:
Aroma: Orange marmalade, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Palate: Mandarin, vanilla, ginger and crushed apples.
Finish: Peppery spice and oak.
