700 ml, 46% abv, Scotland (Islay)"Smokey Joe" is a blend of Islay Single Malt Scotch Whiskies, distilled on the island of Islay, off the south western coast of Scotland. We dont know exactly which distilleries are represented, so its a mystery to contemplate as you sip on a dram. Islay malts take their characteristics both from the local peat used to dry the barley and their closeness to the sea. These factors, typically, imbue the malts with a distinctive sea-weedy, phenolic and peaty flavour. Smokey Joe is bottled at 46% ABV to enhance impact and flavour. The whisky that makes up Smokey Joe has been selected for its highly engaging nose, balance of smoke and peppery spice on the palate and a lingering finish. " This Islay Malt showers the senses with smoke and peaty impressions and yet, overall, one is left with a feeling of tranquil fulfillment, reflecting the balance and subtle complexity therein" "Smoke fills the mouth and the sweetness hits a little later. Velvety and mouth coating"
700ml, 43.0% abv, Scotland, HighlandFrom the coldest distillery in Scotland they only select casks laid down during the Scottish winter months to create Dalwhinnie Winter's Gold. It honours the influence that the cold has on the Dalwhinnie, rich single malt whisky. "An indulgent, honeyed Dalwhinnie that is comforting, rich and sweet, with notes of heather and peat and a spicy warmth" If drinking 'not frozen'..."On the palate the whisky is again fresh and vibrant with the green apple and candied lemon peel notes to the fore. As these soften the palate becomes sweeter, smoother and more gentle. There is an immediate hit of crumbly brown sugar and toffee, which evolves in to a honeycomb/golden syrup-like note and juicy sultanas. There is also plenty of fresh oak, which is reminiscent of pencil shavings, some cinnamon. These elements are backed up by bittersweet malted barley, earthy ginger root and pinches of baking spice and cocoa powder"
