How can The Tatler Bar help in situations like this? We can offer a selection of the finest and most sought-after whiskies to purchase and savour in the comfort of your own home.
Glenfarclas 15 Year Old
This single malt is bottled at 46 per cent ABV for this simple reason—the grandfather of George Grant, the director of sales for Glenfarclas, liked it this way. But its allure goes beyond its high alcohol percentage; discover it for yourself by swirling the rich golden amber liquid in the glass to release aromas of sherry and light creamy butterscotch. Take a sip and enjoy its sweet and malty characters that culminate in a long-lasting finish of sweet nectar, walnuts and peppermint.
The Dalmore 12 Year Old
A popular choice amongst whisky enthusiasts, the 12 Year Old boasts a multitude of flavours after being matured in white oak ex-bourbon and rare oloroso sherry casks. Pour yourself a dram and savour its fragrant notes of roasted espresso beans; the longer it lingers on the palate, the more you'll taste the sweetness and tang of marmalade, triple sec and festive fruitcake. Layered with cocoa, milk chocolate, and hints of citrus for a pleasant surprise at the end.
The Glendronach Traditionally Peated
Unlike the new age characters of The Glendronach, where distilleries rely on using commercially malted barley—this Scotch whisky is made in the traditional way that dates back to 1826 when whisky makers in Highland would burn peat in the kiln at the later stages of barley malting to achieve the desired smokiness. After this process, the distillate spends time in two casks, namely bourbon, and oloroso and Pedro Ximénez sherry casks to build robust flavours of crisp fruits and barley. Its aromas are also worth noting—a medley of orange, liquorice and smoky oak.
Yoichi Single Malt
Fans of Japanese whiskies should take note of this offering, made from a mélange of single malts from different years—hence, it has no age statement. It remains coveted by connoisseurs nonetheless, thanks in part to its smoky and salty aromas that further develop into candied fruits and spices like nutmeg and ginger. Its complex body is revealed on first sip—a seamless blend of peat, spice and fresh fruits that blooms to include chocolate and ripe fruits.
The Macallan 12 Year Old Sherry Oak
Part of the Sherry Oak range, This prized offering from the Sherry Oak range is matured in sherry-seasoned casks, sourced from Jerez de la Frontera in Spain. The golden-honey liquid has rich and complex flavours of oak, spice and dried fruit, and a superb finale that leaves your palate with the luscious taste of vanilla and fruits.
