Featuring: William Grant & Sons Àraid 18 Year Old Whisky
1. Fruity & Fresh
William Grant & Sons Àraid 18 Year Old is an exemplary scotch that showcases distinct flavors of fruit amid a balanced profile that gets better with each sip. The notes from this blended scotch boast a bountiful orchard of citrus, sprays from a fresh citrus peel, and just a touch of banana, complimented with a bit of toffee and raisin for a bright, round body that’s a delight to drink.
Featuring: Chivas Regal Mizunara Whisky
2. Floral & Delicate
This special edition Chivas Regal was aged in Mizunara oak casks, a rarity among whiskeys, imparting a distinct floral flavor on your favorite blended scotch. Bouquets of earthy floral notes blossom throughout while and baking spice add a touch of soft, familiar sweetness for a complex sipping experience.
Featuring: Ardbeg Corryvreckan Scotch Whisky
3. Smoky & Intense
The famed Ardbeg Corryvreckan takes the typical smoke note and heightens it to an almost ethereal level. The opening of citrus and a touch of cream give way to chili, salt, spice, and a hint of addictive peat. The smoke is interpreted with a depth that’s rare even in the finest scotch, complex and almost medicinal, an absolute must for any whiskey connoisseur.
Featuring: Glenmorangie Signet Whisky
4. Rich & Rounded
Each sip of the Glenmorangie Signet is an indulgence. The decadent scotch draws you in with abundant flavors of chocolate, raisins, cocoa, and with each sip, reveals even more sweet, sticky notes of malt, lychee, and cinnamon. A scotch with this much depth and big, sumptuous flavors cannot be missed.
