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. Hepburn’s Choice Ardmore Aged 6 Years
Hepburn’s Choice ~ Distilled at Ardmore Distillery from the Highland region and aged 6 years. The Hepburn’s Choice range comprises whiskies bottled either from specially-selected single casks or from small batches of two to three casks. Always bottled at 46% alcohol, and naturally without artificial colouring or chill-filtration. Bottled in 2020 from a wine cask, one of 347 bottles.
Tasting note: Vanilla, red fruits, peat.
2. Kingsbarns Balcomie
Distilled using Fife barley and matured in ex-Oloroso American Oak Sherry Butts used previously for maturing Sherry. These casks were chosen for their gentle oak flavours and sherry rich sweetness to compliment the fruit character of the Kingsbarns spirit.
Tasting note: Sweet tinned pineapple up front, orange peel, cake spice.
3. Lagavulin 16 Years
It’s back in stock! This well loved single malt is not for the faint of heart, with massive peat-smoke that’s typical of southern Islay. The best selling whisky is aged in oak casks for at least sixteen years and bottled at 43% ABV.
Tasting note: sweet, smoky, seaweed flavours and a huge finish.
