-6 Single Malts & Your Cigar Purchases-
TO CELEBRATE THE FIRST DAY OF OFFICIAL WHISKY SEASON:
Let’s get it started with Scapa Skiren, a lovely dram from the Isle of Orkney in the North Sea. In 2012, Whyte & Mackay replicated the blended malt that Sir Ernest Shackleton took on his 1909 trek to the South Pole. It was so popular that W&M introduced a Shackleton core of bottling in 2014.
Hailing from Wales, Penderyn is an excellent single malt. We’ll try its best-seller Madeira cask finished. A favorite dram among the 4 W&M distilleries is Fettercairn. Our expression is a 56% cask strength bottling by Battlehill. Bowmore Dark & Intense is an interesting Duty-Free exclusive bottling aged in a sherry-cask for 10- years. For a big finish, let’s go with the popular and delicious Lagavulin 16-year.
We hope you can join us and do bring a friend because “good whisky is made great when shared among friends.”
