Latest whisky releases to keep out the winter chillLaura
A wee dram can be just the trick to get you through the winter evenings. Be prepared to tempt your tastebuds with this selection of the latest releases to hit the shelves:
Nc’Nean Organic Single Malt
Launched in August, the Nc’Nean broke all records, with the first release selling out in 24 hours. The great news is that batch number two will be available this November. Tasting notes mention hints of almond butter and coconut, with the fresh fruit taste of plum and nectarine. Uniquely made with 100% sustainable energy, this whisky is a first for Scotland.
A new release to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Compass Box’s first whisky, Hedonism Felicitas has been described as slightly stronger than the first, with flavours of nougat, white chocolate and toasted brioche. Hedonism Felicitas is proving to be a popular choice, and it is already sold out online.
Ardbeg Wee Beastie
A firm favourite among whisky aficionados, the five-year-old Wee Beastie is one to choose as the nights draw in. Rich peaty flavours with tones of apple juice, woody herbs and white pepper are designed to fortify against the coldest of winter weather.
The Dalmore 2003 Distillery Exclusive
For a special treat, indulge yourself with one of only 100 bottles of the latest vintage malt to be released by Dalmore. Available only at Harrods, £1,500 will secure a bottle of this distillery exclusive whisky, perfect for those special evenings in the depth of winter.
These whisky offerings are sure to warm your winter nights, and would be perfect sipped around a roaring fire in your favourite engraved whisky glass.
