The Butterflies Collection is the second Sansibar ALOS Collection which contains 6 high-quality top fillings in rare short runs offered here as a collector set. Here are the details and tasting notes on the whiskies below:
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 Auchentoshan 1988 PX Sherry Cask Finish, The facility’s famed triple distillation process comes to the fore here, demonstrating a nuanced complexity of rich yet approachable whisky flavour: dark chocolate, caramel, oranges, and raisins, not to mention some sherry sweetness. Aged for 29 years in Spanish oak casks and seasoned with Pedro Ximénez sherry, this iteration of the Auchentoshan 1988 PX is sure to warm up the late winter days.
Triple distilled and aged perfectly for over twenty one years in American bourbon and Spanish sherry casks. This creates a refined Lowland Single Malt Whisky, ripe with gooseberries, sweet creamy vanilla, a hint of oak, warm honey, and the signature smooth, delicate, Auchentoshan taste.
Triple distilled and matured solely in American bourbon casks. The result: a Lowland Single Malt Whisky with the sweet aromas of vanilla and coconut – along with the signature smooth, delicate, Auchentoshan taste.
Like all Auchentoshan, American Oak is a really versatile Single Malt. It works wonders as an Auchentoshan & Ale, is happy to stand on its own neat or over ice but also shakes up some classic cocktails that you might not think work with Single Malt whisky.
12 of the most innovative bartenders from all the world came together in 2017 in Glasgow. They have learned the science and magic of the single malt from master blender Ron Welsh and have created the second edition of the Bartender’s Malt together with him. The barrels got appropriately hand-picked, to reflect the personality of every single bar tender – the result is this firm and versatile malt.
The colour is rich bronze with lovely aromas of blackcurrant, brown sugar, orange and raisin. The palate remains fruity and shows hazelnut, cinnamon and toffee flavors. The finish is fresh with lasting oaky sweetness.
Distilled in 1988 at Bladnoch distillery, this Lowland single malt has been matured in a refill sherry hogshead for three decades, before being bottled in April 2019 for Gordon & MacPhail’s Connoisseurs Choice series.
Located less than 20 miles southeast of Edinburgh, Glenkinchie is one of three remaining distilleries in the area called the Lowlands. They only have two stills at the distillery, but they are fat and large producing over 1 million liters per year. The size and shape of the still lends the spirit to be light in nature as it comes off the still.
A 1991 vintage Littlemill bottled by Gordon & MacPhail as part of their excellent Rare Old series. Lot No. RO/16/02 was bottled back in 2015, 511 bottles were been filled at 46% vol.
Established in 1772 and sadly demolished in 2006, Littlemill distillery is now part of the Lost distilleries of Scotland club.
A very rare bottling of Inverleven single malt Scotch whisky, released as part of Gordon & MacPhail’s Private Collection range. Inverleven was located on the Dumbarton distillery complex, but has been silent now for many, many years. Always very exciting to see its spirits making its way out to whisky enthusiasts!
