Our friends at Sherbrooke Liquor have asked us to help make your whisky shopping experience easier so we will be selecting three delicious whisky picks each month. They will be forever known as the ‘Dram Fine Gems’!
Whether you need inspiration on what to buy for yourself, a gift idea for the whisky lover in your life, get intimidated by a large Scotch selection OR just don’t know where to start?! Keep an eye out for our logo in the whisky section and we’ll steer you right!
If you’re not based in Edmonton, that doesn’t stop these being great whisky suggestions for any budget, and we love sharing our love of the drams with you all.
1. Bruichladdich: The Classic Laddie
Ah yes, the Laddie. An oldie but a goodie.
This Brucihladdich is an excellent choice no matter where you are on your own whisky journey .Whether you are a fresh-to-the-scene newbie or a weary traveler with a worn and weathered palate — this dram belongs in everyones liquor cabinet. Plus, the bottle is awesome. #reuse
Tasting note: Sea side breeze, white fruits, wet stone, toffee and… honey honey honey!
2. Kilchoman Madeira Cask Matured
Pam and Chel learned to love a Kilchoman offerering well before we were able to pronouce it correctly. This Madeira Cask is SUPERB! A fortified wine cask is always a dram we are interested in and this one does not dissapoint.
Tasting note: Caramel, orange zest and ripe plums with hints of mixed spices and rich smoke.
3. Gordon MacPhail Caol Ila Distillery 2007 Connoisseurs Choice
It’s no secret that anytime one mentions the words “Caol Ila” it will make Pam and Chel absolutely burst with excitment, so of course when we had the opportunity to try this Gordon MacPhail offerering, we were transported to another dimension. Salty and oily goodness in this dram with a warm and pleasant spice that gives the drinker a gentle hug upon consumtion. Well worth the price tag, so any Islay fans out there — it’s worth the investment.
Tasting note: Cured meats, green apples, hazelnuts. Fruitcake and pumpkin spice.
