Year in Review: Best Whisky of 2016

As we look back at 2016, it’s a year full of things to be thankful for. Above all, we are very thankful for all of the people we have the privilege of calling friends. It’s wonderful to hear stories of our Scottish Whisky being a part of birthdays, anniversaries, promotions, holidays and so much more. Enjoying a fine bottle of whisky with the people who mean the most to you is an experience to be cherished. These experiences are what motivate us to continue our pursuit of offering the finest Scottish Whiskies to the world.

In looking back at 2016, we decided to profile our 10 favorite bottles of whisky available on our site.

1. Macallan 25 Year Crystal Decanter. $1,199.99
We love these beautiful crystal decanters, combine the great presentation with a nice well-aged MacAllan and you’ve got one of our favorites.

2. Glenlivet 33 Year . $519.99
Well-aged sherried Glens are some of our favorites! When there is an opportunity to taste test any of our stock, this is always a popular choice. This cask strength release allows you to experience Glenlivet in all it’s glory.

3. Caol Ila 19 Year Old Sherry Cask. $219.99
Islay whisky has exploded this year and for good reason… It’s really good stuff! This Caol Ila bottle allows you to experience a fine, sherried whisky with just the right amount of peat.

4. Mortlach 24 Year . $199.99
Customers have loved the fruitiness, texture and spice from this Speyside release. It’s an easy to drink whisky that is a must-have in your whisky cabinet.

5. Aberlour 21 Year . $149.99
One of our exclusive Maltman releases, you won’t find this anywhere else. The Pedro Ximenez finish tops off a complex flavour profile. This has been a popular item over the holiday season.

6. Port Ellen 35 Year. $1,299.99
A well-aged bottle from the now silent Port Ellen distillery. As stocks begin diminishing, now is the time to give Port Ellen a try for yourself. Many people consider it to be the best whisky produced during that time period.

7. Laphroaig 16 Year. $219.99
Another great Islay whisky, this highly peated whisky is quite controversial. People who love it, really love it. Others might not appreciate the peatiness. We find it quite enjoyable ourselves!

8. Glenlivet 20 Year Sherry Cask. $199.99
Just as with the Glenlivet 33 year old, we love sherried Glenlivet bottles! This one is another very good choice for a easy to drink Speyside whisky.

9. Signatory Bowmore 16 Year. $159.99
One of the most well known Islay distilleries is Bowmore but many have not experienced a natural, cask strength release. This bottle offers the chance to drink in the same manner as the master distiller. It’s a rather enjoyable bottle!

10. Port Charlotte 13 Year . $139.99
For those that enjoy a heavily peated whisky, Port Charlotte should be on your bucket list. Port Charlotte makes an elegant use of peat in each of their whiskies.
