Honey

Treacle, toffee, caramel, heather

The sweetness of honey is one of the most common flavours in Scotch whisky…particularly in younger examples of the popular Speyside style that forms the basis of many of the most popular blends, but also in the Highlands and, perhaps most characteristically, the Lowlands. The Island whiskies, too, often express a honey-like sweetness in their lighter forms. This is usually the result of the natural sugars present in malted barley, and so is generally more apparent in younger whiskies (up to 15-18 years of age) before too much of heftier flavours like wood, spice or dried fruit are imparted from the cask.

A richer, toffee-like sweetness often derives from European oak casks (generally ex-sherry), while American oak (ex-bourbon or newer sherry casks) produces a lighter, vanilla-tinged flavour that complements the natural sugars of the barley. The marshmallow-like sweetness of bourbon often translates into a lighter honey-like flavour in Scotch matured in ex-bourbon casks.

Good examples of single malts that carry strong flavours of honey are the classic Glenlivet and its many Speyside brethren; the lightness and softness of Lowlanders Glenkinchie and Auchentoshan; and the heathery sweetness of younger Highland Parks or some Highlanders like Dalwhinnie or Glen Garioch. In addition, virtually all of the biggest names in blended whisky are marked by this kind of flavour - the house styles of Johnnie Walker, J&B and Chivas Regal all depend on that sweet, youthful Speyside core. All of them are likely to go well with lighter cigars, particularly those with sweet flavours of their own, such as Hoyo de Monterrey.

Glenturret 30 Year Old - 2022 Release - 70cl, 42% abv

One of the oldest distillery’s in Scotland, and using the mash tuns and stills previously employed at Tullibardine, Glenturret is notable for its delicate, fruity and especially smooth style. Despite an output on the smaller side, it also includes some peaty expressions, giving the range versatility.

An incredibly unique cask collection has been searched through and the finest hand picked casks brought together to create this one off 2022 edition of Glenturret 30 year old expression. European oak sherry casks bring a rich and full bodied base, with a fusion of moscatel wine casks giving delicate and intensely sweet floral top notes. Finally, the piece de resistance of the blend of casks is the addition of Niepoort Portuguese casks, an incredibly dark tawny port, coming from casks that are over 100 years old. The addition of these rare port casks add a truly unique tropical fruitiness to this bottling.

Absolutely a one off, this bottling is extremely limited and is sure to be incredibly sought after - A limited release of only 750 bottles!!
