Morrison & Mackay used to be the owners of Morrison Bowmore. They currently are one of the most popular independent bottlers.
The three new “Strictlies” have very different characters, regions, and ages Càrn Mòr Strictly Limited:
The youngest one is the Fettercairn 2009. This 7 year old whisky is spicy and sweet with caramel, sticky toffee pudding, fudge and brown herbs. Very tasty with a strong mouth feel......
The Caol Ila 2008 is a year older naturally has the famous salty and smoky influences, being a true Islay whisky. The nose however first experiences biscuit, rhubarb and lime, followed by the smoke with lots of vanilla at the end. A beautifully tasty Caol Ila.
The third “Strictly” is the oldest. The Auchroisk 1999 is 16 years old. Scents of roses and elderflower run into delicate syrup, green pear and honeysweet lemonade. Silky soft and delicate.
Càrn Mòr Celebration of the Cask:
The superlative of the Càrn Mòr series starts with an Aberlour 1989. This 27 year old Speysider opens with intense fruit candies. Coconut, aniseed, Turkish fruits and cherries tingle the tongue, creating a satisfying aftertaste.
The Aberlour is of course a special whisky, but the other two “Celebrations” are on another level.
The 1981 Caol Ila is a whopping 35 years old and spent all that time in an excellent bourbon barrel. A lot of light yellow fruit with grapes and a slight hint of smoke. Menthol and mint with a puff of peat. The aftertaste is so beautiful and long with warming fruit. Is that even possible?
North British 1992 is bottled under the “Black Gold” sub label. This means this whisky was ripened in a first fill sherry barrel. This creates scents of burnt raisins, eucalyptus and chocolate, followed by more cream and chocolate cookies, ending with burnt toffee and coffee. This is true black gold.
Three new 20cl bottles of the Hepburn’s Choice label. Fun and tasty with a Dailuaine 2007, an Inchgower 2007 and a whisky named “Nice & Peaty” from 2006. Great as a present or just for yourself.
