Soft fruity aromas mingle with gentle spice and nuttiness. Fresh apple skins and vanilla come to the fore. The flavour is buoyed by honeyed sweetness building with rich citrus notes. A trace of mint peeks through. The gentle finish is smooth and lingering.
Peated Single Malt Whisky
Youthful barley integrates effortlessly with the hickory and smoke : outrageously delicate for a nose so big
The virgin oak used has injected some major Demerara sugars. The smoke is not quite big enough to keep it all under control, nor the rising tide of vanillins
All kinds of milky mocha notes work well with that soothing smoke
Amrut releases a limited edition of the Two Continents variant, usually every two or three years. The Second Edition used second-fill Bourbon casks and was bottled at 50% abv, while the First Edition was matured in ex-grain casks and bottled 46%

"The Knockdhu Distillery first opened its doors in October 1894 and was regarded as the perfect embodiment of a modern distillery, and it has been ever since.
In this spirit of a 'modern tradition', we have teamed up with renowned Scottish illustrator, Peter Arkle, to produce a series of Limited Edition releases, each celebrating a unique aspect of our distillery.
A dark warehouse containing hundreds of casks of anCnoc sitting there quietly ageing is a very special thing to be allowed to see. It's like sneaking a glimpse into a holy place (a spiritual place!). The rows of dusty casks stretch as far as you can see into the gloom. Nothing seems to be happening but there's an incredible sense of time passing. Magic is happening - slowly and quietly. Hand selected by Distillery Manager, Gordon Bruce, this Limited Edition is matured in American and Spanish oak barrels resulting in a refreshingly light dram.
Colour: Lighr amber
Nose: Sweet and full-bodied bursting with spicy vanilla and rich toffe aromas followed by fresh lemons, cooked green apples and a hint coconut.
Taste: Sweet, warm and spicy. Dried fruit cake, creamy vanilla and toffe are followed by a note of zesty orange peel and enveloped in leathery richness.

Ardbeg Ten Years Old is revered around the world as the peatiest, smokiest, most complex single malt of them all. Yet it does not flaunt the peat; rather it gives way to the natural sweetness of the malt to produce a whisky of perfect balance.Typically most whiskies are chill-filtered and reduced to a strength of 40% ABV. Ardbeg Ten Years Old, however, is non chill-filtered and has a strength of 46% ABV, thus retaining maximum flavour, at the same time giving more body and added depth. It’s whisky with none of the goodness taken out!

Corryvreckan takes its name from the famous whirlpool that lies to the north of Islay, where only the bravest souls dare to venture. Swirling aromas and torrents of deep, peaty, peppery taste lurk beneath the surface of this beautifully balanced dram.
To the north of Islay and Jura is the world's second largest whirlpool, the famous CORRYVRECKAN. Our Celtic ancestors knew it as the 'Mother Goddess' or 'womb of all creation'. Today this thunderous, seething cauldron is named after the Viking Prince Breacan, who perished there proving his devotion to the daughter of the Lord of the Isles. ARDBEG, like CORRYVRECKAN, is not for the faint-hearted!
