Whisky of Aultmore was formerly not known under his real name. Only in a few bars he was available, and even only if you asked for 'a nip of the Buckie Road'. Now there are several original bottlings like this 18 year old.
This Balvenie was matured in old sherry and bourbon casks. It makes this scotch interesting but also mild. The orange flavour and a deep sweetness make it a true gem among malt whiskies.
Like its younger brother, this 17-year-old Balvenie was matured in two different kinds of casks. First it was matured in American oak barrels and then in European ex-sherry casks. David Steward has created a truly complex and aromatic whisky.
For the maturation of this whisky, Glenfiddich adopted the "Solera" procedure from Spanish sherry production. Whiskies matured in different casks (Oloroso sherry, bourbon, virgin oak) are married in a unique Solera vat made from oregon pine.
This 18-year-old expression of Glenfiddich is matured in ex-bourbon and Oloroso sherry casks and then married in small batches for at least three months.
18 long years of maturation and the addition of ex-sherry casks make this Glenlivet much more complex than the popular 12-year-old standard bottling. Despite its quality it's still much more affordable than a lot of other 18-year-old single malts.
The Glenmorangie 10 years old is the most popular single malt whisky in Scotland itself. Only first-fill and second-fill ex-bourbon casks are used for this Highland malt.
The classic Lagavulin is kilned with a high smoke content in the malt. The stills are pear-shaped, so that all flavors can be passed on to the condensers during distillation. The single malt then matures in bourbon and sherry casks to completion.
