Cadenhead’s Original Collection Release

 

Ardmore 11yo 46.0%

70% Marsala, 30% Bourbon

Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Smoky, as anyone familiar with Ardmore would be expecting, and this is supplemented by a saltiness and some fruity notes (jack fruit, orange skin). The taste and finish are juicy and overall this dram is an excellent example of a whisky matured in ex-Marsala casks.

 

 

 

Bunnahabhain 7yo 46.0%

100% Refil Sherry

Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky

From Islay’s north east coast, the maritime notes combined with woodsmoke and a slight spiciness are the characteristics you will meet when experiencing this dram. The Tasting Panel adored the bacon notes on the nose as much as the slight campfire hint on the palate, or the chilli and paprika on the finish.

 

 

 

 

 

Fettercairn 15yo 46.0%

60% PX Sherry, 40% Bourbon

Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Fettercairn can be found in the foothills of the Cairngorms Mountains and produces spirit known for a heavy, sweet style.

Notes of toffee, treacle and caramel are prominent in this one and there are plenty of fruity moments too. A very balanced dram that never overpowers.

 

 

 

 

 

Jura 12yo 46.0%

100% Manzanilla Sherry

Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Although the original Jura distillery was founded in the early 1800s, the rebuilt distillery we have now is of the classic 1960s variety, one of many that emerged in that boom period.  A light smoky nature can be found in this whisky, accompanied by tastes like applewood and vanilla. This develops into meaty notes on the finish.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Knockdhu 11yo 46.0%

30% Bourbon, 70% Madeira

Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky

A fascinating Speyside whisky from Knock, Banffshire. A spicy and nutty nose, which softens as the dram progresses. Sweet, fruity notes are very apparent as soon as you taste it and this leads to a dry finish with tomato notes. Look out for meaty hints too. A perfect addition to our Original Collection.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Speyside 18yo 46.0%

100% Bourbon

Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky

The first thing the Tasting Panel noticed about this whisky was the fresh, fruity nose that immediately grabbed our attention – and it will do the same for you too. The palate develops an earthy note and also features sweeter hints, like almond and blueberry. Light fruity notes are on the finish of this good, bourbon cask style whisky.

  1. I have a friend planning a trip to London and he usually brings me a few bottles from your shop when he goes. But with the changes to the website, I can’t see what you have in stock. Can you please direct me to this information so I can give him an order?

    Thank you very much.

  2. The above was not intended as “thoughts on the Original Collection,” but is an inquiry. Is there a different way to communicate?
