armorik dervenn maitre de chai

The BREXIT of England causes an advantageous purchase, including the independent bottlers Amorik and Carn Mor who are now cheaper to buy due to the low rating of the Pound.

The Warenghem Distillery in Bretagne has two beautiful new Armorik whiskys bottled. The Armorik Dervenn is a special bottling of 1500 bottles. There is still one working cooperage in Bretagne. They create local growing oak barrels for this special Armorik. Dervenn also means "oak".

Morrison & Mackay has beautiful new whiskys bottled under the Carn Mòr Strictly Limited label and under the Carn Mòr Celebration of the Cask label.


Armorik Dervenn opens with spicy notes with subtle influences of the wood. Then fruit covered by sweet oak, pine needles and burning campfire. A delicious summery whisky. The same applies to Armorik Maître de Chai 2nd release. Maître de Chai means cellar master. The two barrels are needed for these very limited bottling 1000 bottles are selected by the cellar master, who in this case is the founder and owner of the distillery. Two sherry butts from European oak give this whisky prunes, hazelnuts, almonds and toffee. The aftertaste also contains a hint of smoke. Lovely.

Carn Mòr stricty Limiteds:

Morrison & Mackay: as said six beautiful new whiskys bottled under the Carn Mòr Strictly Limited label and under the Carn Mòr Celebration of the Cask label.

The Carn Mòr stricty Limited begin with a whisky from a fairly obscure distillery. We very rarely have  Knockdhu on stock. This whisky from 2009 is very fruity and summery with apples and pears, bananas and Panna Cotta.

The Glentauchers 2010 comes from a sherry butt. This has brought a lot of flavor; "Sticky Toffee Pudding" or dadelcake with warming herbs, chocolate and cream, raisins and black currants.

And third, we have a Royal Brackla 2001.
 Fresh mint, flower fields with mowed grass, anise and freshly baked cookies. A tasty trio.

Càrn Mòr “Celebrations”
Càrn Mòr Stricty Limiteds celebrations

At the "Celebrations" we start with a bottling of the Speyside Distillery in 1994. The whisky comes from a bourbon hogshead, but it seems to have all the characteristics of a sherry barrel. The tongue also is experiencing dark chocolate with dark red fruit syrup and exotic spices. A winner.

DAILUAINE 1992, a lot of tropical fruit with vanilla custard and gingerbread. And thirdly there is a venerable Clynelish 1989. A wonderful all-rounder with orange peel with white herbs and cream. In the aftertaste marmalade and more spices (pepper and salt?) Wax and light oak. A personal favorite.

Càrn Mòr Old Perth

Furthermore, we are ready for the Old Perth Peat and Old Perth Sherry second bottlings. In comparison to the first bottling the Peat is the heavier  and slightly salty of flavor. The Sherry has an even heavier taste with more influence of oak and slightly less sweet. Both give excellent value for money. Prices have remained unchanged.

And of course we have some more new independent bottler whiskys. Watch the NEW ARRIVALS!
