To smell, warm aromas of tropical fruit are layered with berry fruits, rich cacao, sugared almonds and floral top notes.

Soft plum is balanced with fresh baked ginger cake and cherries while aged oak spice accentuates the tropical house characteristics.

Glencadam Distillery has announced a new range of specially curated cask finishes.

The range features five unique finishes which put a spin on the core Glencadam characteristics.

Created in small batches by Master Distiller Robert Fleming, the single malt carefully selected for this collection has been matured in American oak ex-bourbon casks from the historic Glencadam dunnage warehouses.

Each expression has then been finished in experimental casks, creating five distinctive taste profiles:  Pedro Ximénez Sherry Cask Finish, White Port Cask Finish, Tawny Port Cask Finish, Merlot Wine Cask Finish and Pinot Noir Wine Cask Finish.


Kingsbarns has a new limited-edition cask strength whisky for 2023 – Kingsbarns BELL ROCK Cask Strength.

Bottled at 61.1%, It has rich flavours of fruit and spice and a natural colour that reflects the quality of the oak.

Full of toffee and fruity character, BELL ROCK has pecan pie notes, subtle caramelised orchard fruits and fresh pastry on the palette.

On the nose, it’s rich velvety toffee with baked meringue and roasted almonds, with a caramel sauce and crème brûlée finish.



Loch Lomond Whiskies has unveiled its Steam & Fire single malt.

It is finished in heavily charred American Oak, flamed at Loch Lomond Whiskies’ own traditional cooperage.

Located near the banks of the iconic Loch Lomond, the distillery uses Scotland’s only set of Straight Neck Pot Stills. 

As the only distiller in Scotland to use these stills, Master Blender Michael Henry can influence flavour from fermentation, through distillation, as well as during maturation.

The dram has notes of orange, pear and melted brown sugar with a dark chocolate, and a soft smoke finish.


Glen Scotia has unveiled a new limited-edition 48 Year Old single malt.

Drawn from Glen Scotia’s oldest and rarest reserves, only 250 individually numbered bottles of this exceptionally unique whisky have been made available worldwide.

Through this process it took on a perfumed floral and orange citrus profile, before a final six-month finish in a second-fill ex-Pedro Ximénez Hogshead.  

On the palate is demerara sugar and treacle with vibrant hints of orange marmalade, red apple, raisin, and sultana, culminating in a long and indulgent finish of melted brown sugar enriched  with stone fruit, apricot and peach.
