Even the shape of the bottle harks back to Ancient Greece, Tsantali Ouzo is a traditional flavour made in traditional ways using copper pot stills. As you’d expect with a good ouzo Tsantali is crystal clear and louches milky white when water is added. On tasting you’ll enjoy a surprising sweetness which pairs with the strong liquorice notes you’d expect and hints of minty freshness too. The liquorice finish on this ouzo is sweeter than average making it a popular choice.
The clue’s in the name with this one, Balvenie Doublewood Single Malt gets its name from the interesting distillation process, involving distillation in two woods. The maturation process involves moving the whisky from a traditional oak whisky cask to a Spanish oak sherry cask, adding more depth to its flavour and creating its warm, rounded character. Sweet fruit and sherry notes are apparent in its scent and the taste is mellow for a single malt, the sherry at work once more, with nuttiness and cinnamon notes building too.
