Staff Picks - June 2013

Posted on 21st June 2013 by Pierre

It’s scotch all the way this month for our staff picks. A pair of blends, from two of the most famous scotch brands, along with a couple of independently bottled, cask strength single malts. Sláinte!

Staff Picks - our choices for this month

Tomatin 12 Year Old - Burns Malt

Tomatin 12 Year Old - Burns Malt

Zero sulphur, zero bitter tannic notes, packed with 100% sherry cask goodness and bottled at cask strength. This is how you produce a sherried malt. Richly flavoured and accessibly priced. Full marks to the boys at The Whisky Barrel. Buy some!

£46.79 at www.thewhiskybarrel.co.uk

Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve

Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve

A recent addition to the Johnnie Walker range. The characteristic coastal peat strains we associate with the brand take a back seat on this one. Instead we find a beautifully balanced blend with a more honeyed delivery.

Aultmore Batch 2 That Boutique-y Whisky Company

Aultmore Batch 2 That Boutique-y Whisky Company

An unusual, very interesting and highly spicy whisky from this lesser known distillery. Lives up to That Boutique-y Whisky Co’s high standards. Bottled at natural strength with no naughty filtration or colouring.

£41.95 at www.masterofmalt.com

Pierre
Cutty Sark Storm

Cutty Sark Storm

A dangerously drinkable blend with a little more body and flavour than the standard Cutty Sark. This will please die hard fans of the brand and new comers alike. And all at a very reasonable price.

£21.35 at www.thewhiskyexchange.com
