Ardbeg Ten Years Old is revered around the world as the peatiest, smokiest, most complex single malt of them all. Yet it does not flaunt the peat; rather it gives way to the natural sweetness of the malt to produce a whisky of perfect balance. Named World Whisky of the Year in 2008. Whisky Bible Awards 2012: Best Single Malt Scotch of the Year, 10 Years and Under.
Resplendent in its new packaging, Arran’s 18 Year Old is a wonderfully balanced expression of the Arran Malt which displays a tremendous depth of character. Even mix of first fill and second-fill Sherry hogsheads and first-fill Bourbon barrels. Caramelised orange and dark chocolate with a touch of brown sugar, vanilla and baked peaches between the mighty Sherry Cask. Lingering and intense classic Arran notes are intensified with the influence of the oak, mingling to produce a memorable and characterful dram.
Auchentoshan’s typical floral lightness comes from their practice of triple distillation, thought to have been brought to the lowlands by migrants from Ireland after the potato famine. This whisky demonstrates this style to great effect, with the 18 years of 100% American oak maturation adding a fantastic woody complexity and a beautiful chocolaty complexity. Quite a limited release, Lowland fans should move quickly if they want to sample this rich, yet clean, Auchentoshan.
The recipe for this classic Bourbon dates back to 1796.

The 10-year old Craoi Na Mona single malt is something a bit different. It’s an Irish whiskey, distilled at the Cooley Distillery in the north-east the country and bottled by the British spirit merchants Berry Bros. & Rudd.
Like many Irish whiskeys, it has been double-matured in American Oak casks but it is at the end of this process when things get interesting. After a decade of maturation, this single malt is shipped to Scotland where it spends around five months in heavily-peated casks which previously held Laphroaig.
This explains the name of this whiskey Craoi Na Mona is Irish Gaelic for ‘heart of peat’. The Islay peat flavour definitely permeates throughout but rather than overpower it adds to a complex and flavorsome whisky which is best drank neat or with the tiniest splash of water.
