Matured in Sherry casks, this whisky from the youngest distillery in Scotland (established in 1996) has toffee and vanilla notes with malty hints of chocolate on the palate.

Unusual Speysider with butter, toffee and custard, hints of dried banana and a malty finish.
Complex and smokey, you'll need a good hour for a glass of this - just to savour all the aromas and flavours. Heavenly...

The most northerly mainland distillary, this is a big, powerful whisky with a strong, spicy character.

Even I don't know what this is. If you can work it out, please tell me!
