Laphroaig’s Brodir single malt Scotch whisky was originally released to the Travel Retail market. You can probably guess what ‘Brodir’ means in ancient Norse – of course, it’s ‘Brother’.
For this expression, the Islay distillers first matured the whisky in ex-bourbon barrels before transferring it over to casks which previous held Ruby Port.

Bowmore Small Batch is an elegant Islay single malt, when gets matured in both first-fill and second-fill bourbon barrels. A great introduction to Bowmore’s lovely smoky flavour profile – the Small Batch is refined, light and well balanced with plenty of honey, coconut and vanilla notes.

A delicious, richly sherried Glenfarclas aged for 17 years and launched for the travel retail market. Loads of character and depth, just what we’ve come to expect from the distillery.
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.
