We report on various luxury whiskys fairly frequently at Lussorian, and some of the prices for these special single malts have been staggering.
That`s fine, because the taste has always matched the price.
Now, we would like to tell you about two NEW malt whiskies. New whiskies of this calibre are a rare thing, but Demijohn have managed to acquire two new special casks of rare Single Malt Scotch Whisky – Linkwood and Bunnahabhain.
Demijohn, for those that are not in the know, is basically a liquid deli.
A fantastic concept!
The range of spirits offered by Demijohn is as impressive as their new product, The Highland and Island Stack.
At the top of the stack is a 12 year old Linkwood Single Malt Whisky (61.3%). A relatively unknown malt from Elgin. With a pleasant trace of sherried fruit on the nose, its obvious strength at 61.3% does not produce the anticipated fire in the throat but
rather a smooth, velvety malt with a pleasant after note of oak and roasted nuts.
On the bottom is a much richer malt – 18 year old Bunnahabhain Single Malt Whisky (46%) from Islay. Its unique taste of sweet honeyed nuts is delightfully smooth and a surprising move away from the traditional Islay peat smoke taste.
Demijohn Owner Angus Ferguson said: `We search high and low for superb, unusual single malt whiskies and after a shortage last year we have laid our hands on two exceptional drams. This Highland and Island Malt Stack makes a highly desirable present for any whisky lover or even better indulge yourself with two truly complex and endearing malts.`
The Highland and Island stack comprises two stacking 250ml Impilabile 250ml bottles and comes with a welcome price tag of £69.95.
My advice – get in there quick!
