One of the world’s most revered whiskies and one which if you can taste it, you simply must! Macallan’s exceptional 25 year old malt is the epitome of Speyside, winning awards and lifelong fans alike. The nose is rich in orange and pear, with sweet spices and just the slightest touch of smoke. It’s effect on the palate is textbook, malty apricots, prunes and figs are paired with cinnamon and sweet nutmeg. All bound together with a burst of honey, firmly planting this malt at the heart of the Speyside scene.
Buffalo Trace offer a wide range of exciting bourbons and their classic Kentucky straight Buffalo Trace is one of the most famous. Intense with velvety vanilla, warming spices and oaky barrel char, each sip of Buffalo Trace is a real pleasure. Its aroma is rich like a box of toffees, with notes of chocolate éclair, cinnamon and rum spice. On the palate brown sugar comes through strongly with toffee depth and the spicy cinnamon heat also coming through. A classic Kentucky bourbon you can sip again and again.
