    Macallan AERA Royal Black

    Rated 0 out of 5
    The Macallan AERA Royal Black is an exciting Taiwanese exclusive release from Scotland’s most famous distillery. Aged in a combination of European and American Oak casks, this dram follows the latest Macallan trend of moving away from exclusively sherry cask matured whisky, but there is no doubt that the signature sherried style is still on full display here. The precious sherry cask oak was grown in Jerez in southern Spain and the forests in the north before being dried for four years, made into wooden barrels and then sedated for two years before being filled with Sherry. This process is carried out to strict regulations set by Macallan’s Master of Wood and it results in supreme quality casks that have dramatic effects on the distillery’s outstanding spirit.

    This is a whisky that typifies what it means to be top-quality scotch - it’s complex, interesting and looks as good on the outside as it tastes on the inside. The first part of the spirit’s 20 year maturation period is spent inside first fill ex-bourbon barrels, resulting in a light citrusy range of notes that come through on the nose. It was then transferred to Tawny Port Pipes, sourced from the Douro region of Portugal, known for their outstanding quality. This helps to bring an extra level of depth to the dram, with figs, gingerbread, dark chocolate and black cherries coming to the fore. The citrus reappears on the finish in the form of caramelised orange and a little marmalade comes through and lasts until your next sip.

    This Caol Ila 35 Year Old really needs no words - the whisky and the bottle are simply stunning. The liquid is an incredible golden/amber colour that screams quality and the notes in this bottle are quick to back that up. Matured in rejuvenated refill American Oak hogshead and European Oak Sherry butts, it brings so much to the table. Sweet and subtle at first, the whisky begins to open up on the palate with black pepper, ground allspice and sticky toffee coming to the fore. A little more pepper comes on the finish before fading to make way for the hints of smoke that are synonymous with Caol Ila whisky.

    The Glenlivet Captain's Reserve is a 2018 release whisky from the famous Speyside distillery inspired by Captain Bill Grant Smith, the grandson of the distillery's founder. It has been finished in casks that previously housed Cognac resulting in a delicious and gentle dram that brings baked apples, brown sugar, sticky dates and some citrus fruits, along with a creamy mouthfeel. It really does take you on a journey from the misty valleys of Speyside to the warm Cognac vineyards of France. Already a fan favourite, this bottle is one to pull out at a party and impress your friends with - the chances are, they won't have had an opportunity to taste this beauty yet.

    This exquisite Bunnahabhain 30 Year Old is one of the latest releases in Douglas Laing's "Xtra Old Particular" (XOP) series. Known as a lighter, earthier Islay whisky, Bunnahabhain is the distillery for those that aren't huge fans of heavily peated drams. This particular expression was matured in a single refill butt, making it rich, deep and fruity. It's complex, well-balanced and very moreish. Bottled in August 2018, this dram is already soaring in popularity and with only 271 bottles produced, it's worth getting your hands on before they're all gone.

    This new release from the Bruichladdich distillery is the latest member of their super-heavily peated Octomore range. 52 tonnes of Islay barley were malted to make this single farm limited whisky. The incredibly high PPM levels mean you should expect a lot, and we mean a lot, of peaty notes in this dram, but that isn't all that's on offer. Matured in predominantly second-fill casks, the whisky also exhibits delicate woody notes and hints of citrus that help to cut through the large doses of peat. It's a surprisingly intricate and complex whisky that every fan of smoky whisky will revel in.

    This Jamaica 30 Year Old was hand selected for the Rum Nation series and that tells us that the spirit inside is a bit special. Rum Nation was founded by Fabio Rossi, the man behind indie bottler Wilson & Morgan. He got a taste for the rum industry while touring the Caribbean and was keen to start bottling some of the fantastic spirits that he came across, this fantastic rum was one of them. IT is a 30 Year Old that was distilled in 1986 and carefully blended before being bottled in 2016. Rossi has ensured that each rum cask goes through the same rigorous selection process as Wilson & Morgan whiskies, ensuring that only the very best are chosen.
