Released for Feis Ile 2014 and describing itself as "a cryptic concoction", this is Jura playing with wood to an almost silly level. After its initial maturation in American oak ex-bourbon casks, the whisky was then moved to Jupilles, Les Bertanges, Limousin, Tronçais, Allier and Vosges oak casks, before being married in sherry butts, for a total of seven different cask finishes.
Each batch carefully made by hand, Aberlour A’bunadh is a unique cask strength whisky that has achieved cult status among whisky connoisseurs. An incredibly popular whisky from Aberlour. Meaning ‘the original’ in Gaelic, A’bunadh is made in homage to Aberlour’s founder, James Fleming, using only traditional methods without chill filtration, just great whisky! The result is a heavier, creamier single malt than most have ever experienced.
Amrut Fusion gets its name from the fact that it uses two barleys: Indian and Scottish - with the latter being peated for good measure. Fusion has been picking up awards ever since it first appeared in 2009, and in 2012 was named the best whisky for a Rob Roy in the Ultimate Cocktail Challenge in New York.

Indian Single Malt Whisky
A glorious single malt from the Island of Islay, Ardbeg 10 year old. Beside the classic peat, It gives way to the natural sweetness of the malt, producing a whisky of perfect balance. This single malt has won several awards including World Whisky of the Year in 2008 by Jim Murray, simply a dram not to miss out on.
As a replacement for the much-loved 1990 Airigh nam Beist, Ardbeg Corryvreckan had some pretty big shoes to fill, but the good news is that this is a belter, winning World's Best Single Malt Whisky at the World Whisky Awards 2010 and Best No Age Statement Scotch from Jim Murray's Whisky Bible.
