Into the woods

As the dark nights of winter approach, we wander into the woods in search of richer spirits.

These delicious drams have all been matured in sherry casks for a richer, fruitier finish. We look forward to enjoying their warmth and spice, and we hope that you can join us…

  • Glendronach Revival 15yr old. This beautiful and naturally dark dram is a perfect balance of fruit and smoke.
  • Mortlach 16yr old. A rare – and now discontinued – bottling from the Flora and Fauna range. Michael Jackson said it “dances on the tongue… with a smooth, dry, smoky finish”.
  • Dailuaine 16yr old. Complementing the Mortlach, this bottle is also from the Flora and Fauna range, and shares some of the Mortlach’s smoke – whilst adding orange and toffee notes.
  • Glenfarclas 15yr old. Fruitier than a fruit cake … but with a long, dry, smokey finish.
  • Glenrothes Sherry Cask Reserve. A brand new range for 2014, this “no age statement” whisky was matured entirely in first-fill sherry casks, and packs an astonishingly fruity punch.
  • Laphroaig Signatory 1998. Bottled earlier this year after spending 15 years in a refill sherry butt, this limited edition whisky balances the traditional Laphroaig smoke with fresh fruit.

The tasting will be on Thursday 13th November at 7:30pm (for an 8pm start) in the back room of The Lord Nelson Inn on Trafalgar Street, close to Brighton Station. Tickets will be £20 on the night.
