Glen Grant Single Malt 10yo 700ml
NZD $53.99 inc. GST
Winnner of Single Malt of the Year (multiple casks) for 2016 by Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible, Glen Grant 10 Year Old is an exemplary Scotch whisky.
With a bright, golden colour and a bouquet of sweat pear and vanilla, this award winning single malt dances on the palate with soft and lively notes of orchard fruits and malt, and features a finish that is satisfyingly long and complex.
A younger, more intensely smoky version of Auld Reekie, The Big Smoke is an Islay malt whisky from Duncan Taylor
A great malt which Jim Murray awarded 95 points in his Whisky Bible, this is excellent value for money. The flavours are simple, but flawless, a clean, crisp 15 year old from the Dalwhinnie distillery, also part of Diageo’s Classic Malts range.
Original is the core bottling in the Glenmorangie range, released to replace the old 10 year old. This really is a classic malt, so creamy and fruity.

This is a fairly typical lowland whisky in that it is fresh and light in character, with notes of lemon and cut grass. A sweet nose and a hint of peat make this a good introduction to the world of single malts.
A fruity, clean and polished malt with a touch of honey and spice, Aberfeldy 12 Year Old is an excellent introduction to this Highland distillery. Aberfeldy’s main claim to fame is as the heart of the excellent Dewar’s blend but whiskies like this are putting it firmly in the spotlight
This is one of the legendary Islay malts. We loved the Committee release and we weren’t disappointed with this incredible dram. This was released to replace Airigh Nam Beist, choosing a more medicinal style over the creamier style of the beastie.

Originally released for the Travel Retail Market, Hibiki Japanese Harmony Master’s Select is a smashing Japanese blended whisky that displays a harmonious flavour profile (as you might expect from the name) with a good kick of fruity Sherry notes.
“A well-aged Cardhu, this 18 year old Speyside single malt retains its characteristic gentle nature allied with greater complexity and richness.”

A young, rather gentle Bowmore. Whilst not massively complex or full-bodied, Legend is still a great value for money malt.
Another Nàdurra! These releases from the Glenlivet distillery, bottled at cask strength without chill-filtration, are rather excellent indeed. This particularly batch was drawn from first-fill Oloroso Sherry casks.
