The s and 70s were a boom era for blended Scotch whisky and new distilleries of the same design were also built alongside existing sites at Clynelish in , Linkwood and Mannochmore , beside Glenlossie Distillery. A further seven distilleries were re-modelled in the same way: they can be identified by their large still-room windows, making for a pleasant working environment. Tasting Note Pale gold in colour, with pale green lights. Easy to drink, straight; sweet and centre palate.
Water reduces the aroma and introduces some spice to the taste. Evidently the latest one announced for Longmorn is not the last that this district will see… Where is all this going to end? So the water — so important to distillers, although in days gone by it was the almost mystic quality of the water that appealed, while today it is the reliable quantity and purity was of undoubted reliability. More prosaically, but of equal. Longmorn Station and its platform still exist in good order, although the track has gone.
There are currently plans to clear it as a cycle path, linking with the Speyside Way at Craigellachie, and from there to Aviemore and the National Cycle Network. The founder was John Duff, in partnership with two other local worthies. He had been manager at Glendronach Distillery and had been the driving force behind the building of Glenlossie Distillery in and went on to build BenRiach Distillery, next door to Longmorn and connected to it by a railway line, in The two distilleries amalgamated as Longmorn-Glenlivet Distilleries Co.

I once worked as a free-lance commercial copywriter, and it was in this connection that I began to write about whisky, in My business partner, Simon Scott, went on to become the leading advertising copywriter in Scotland.

Both the colour and the sweet overall flavour indicate that it has been drawn from refill ex-bourbon casks — an attractive balance of oak and smoke.
It is bottled without the addition of any spirit caramel — i. The taste unreduced is sweet, lightly salty and powerfully smoky in the finish. It drinks well, straight. A drop of water reduces the smoky impact in favour of the maritime notes iodine, sea-salt , with vanilla; the taste is now even sweeter and saltier. Whisky Collecting — Gavin D. When it comes to collecting whisky there are essentially two different motives at work.
Some people collect as an investment -a perfectly understandable reason in an economic climate where it is difficult to make money earn its keep by traditional investment methods — and others collect for the sheer pleasure of doing so. There is, of course, also a potential crossover, as many who collect for pleasure quietly hope that over time their collection will increase in value.
However, what we can state is that the UK rare whisky market - as defined by the secondary market for all UK auctions on and off line - has grown dramatically to 33, bottles in This represents a Conversely, bottles from less attractive distilleries and brands continue to fall in value. Indeed, if you look at. Both Arran and GlenDronach have made significant progress in taking an increased share of the wallet at auction.
Both distilleries are becoming more collected, with GlenDronach in particular starting to gain momentum. Are they higher than expected for an old bottle only get to know about releases first, but, currently, you have the with an imperfect seal? Check labels. Do they look too perfect, too 10 per cent discount available to W Club members on all whisky clean, and too white? You need to be smart thing is to consider when collecting whisky. For me the answer is about what you are buying and why. Caveat emptor! New truly special. The result, of course, is the price goes up in the secondary market - in some cases drastically so.
The quality of the whisky should never be underestimated by collectors, even if they have no intention of drinking the bottle. The important thing to consider when collecting is how long do you want to hold on to your whisky. Port Ellen is one of the most sought after single malt whiskies for two main reasons.
Firstly, it's a whisky from Islay, and secondly the distillery was closed 32 years ago. This is one of only bottles, and very rare indeed. To have such a rare blend of 82 whiskies over 50 years of age is very significant. Ladyburn whisky is really rare, the Ladyburn distillery only operated for nine years and closed in Not much whisky was produced there, making this some of the rarest liquid available to purchase by the bottle.
In my view, GlenDronach is definitely the distillery to keep an eye on. Not every collectable will be very expensive, so stick to a budget and decide how much you want to spend on further bottles. This can be important if you want to showcase your collection for all to see, but not so important if your collection will stay hidden from view in the loft or in a cupboard.
Either way, some collectables will look more attractive than others, so think about whether that matters to you. I firmly believe you will have more interest in and respect for your collection of whiskies if you take time to experience and appreciate the flavours of our treasured spirits. Never feel guilty opening a bottle. It is a truism of British fashion that nearly all talent will eventually drift towards the seductive beckoning of London.

The Folk aesthetic has changed little over the years; it is the attention to minute detail that sets Folk apart from its competitors.
You were born in Cumbernauld, just outside Glasgow, perhaps not the most creatively inspiring place in Scotland — what was it that first sparked your interest in clothes? For the most part, it seems that kids of my era had only two routes that got them into designer brands — music or football.
Football was my real passion … I loved playing football, occasionally getting in trouble and always wanted to hang about with the cool guys — who were older and generally wanted to smoke and drink; I still love football, though for me it showed no direct route to fashion. I was really into dressing up and looking different, but it was only when I walked into Ichi Ni San, aged 15, and Stephen, one of the owners, asked me to model for them that I really got seduced by it all.
Shortly after that they kindly asked me to work Saturdays and from there I experimented heavily with all the wares. How did working there affect your ideals and affinity for quality products? Dries is still one of my favourite brands, one that still inspires me personally and Folk. The shop and its brands brought the fashion world to life. My job there afforded me time to soak up design styles and quality, to see for myself how brands evolved: some got better, some stagnated, some faded away. What was the catalyst for starting the brand?
Using the south island of Japan as a place to experiment with the Folk style, it was not until two years later that would I bring it to London for the first time. Your ethos of minimalist branding and great detailing was very definitely swimming against the flow of the time.
Is that correct? Not that I could make it to that standard at that point, but a big influence was beautiful, casually worn garments. Have you always been quite contrarian in your work? Yes, both in work and privately. For example, I am in the process of renovating my house, and we come to the part when we are ordering standard stuff So, last weekend I made a box mould to make my own stone skirting tiles. And were the early days challenging? It was very labour intensive. So when it came back from the factory, there was still stuff you had to do with it.
All the clothes were a direct reflection of my personality — the way I want clothes to look. Folk is a design company that prides itself on the great product it makes. Where do you draw your inspiration from and is it hard to stay inspired? There is also an inner confidence that we have gained through roughing out some tough times and through 10 years of Folk. The design team takes influence from all over.

Art is a strong influence, especially in London. Most recently we looked at the lauded architect Oscar Niemeyer, juxtaposing the massive sprawl of favelas and the pattern and colour they showcase. Would it be accurate to say that even with retail locations, Folk seems to avoid the obvious, or stereotypical?
It is not prime fashion, but many have followed us and it is now becoming a bit of a destination. Shepherd Street is also off the beaten track, but it works for us. We go with what we feel rather than what is dictated. Amsterdam was down to doing well and the shop owner asking us to do it with him. It was an easy one to say yes to.
There was also a store in Munich, now closed. It was an idea we could act out, but I think an amount of naivety and courage did not make a recipe for success. What do you have in store for the future? Perhaps more stores and more categories. Procreating should always be on the agenda, we have a young-ish group so we expect many little ones to arrive over the coming years…no pressure. Oh, and having fun while working is a must.
We are not exactly Yvon Chouinard, but we should all take a little from the fine example he sets. Elbe Lealman, the head designer at Folk, is maturing into one of the very best around. I think she has a lot more in the tank. What else might you branch out into? Ceramics for December this year. Like in our clothing, buttons, fabrics, etc. Away from clothing and design work, what interests you? Having fun with my family and friends …. I am happy to be a daddy to my three children, it allows me to unwind. W1D 7LG See other outlets worldwide on www.
High in the mountains of Madeira, they serve whisky with a punch. At Abrigo do Pastor, a country pub where rusty old farming equipment dangles from the ceiling and a mounted goats head glares at a stuffed buck from across the room, barman Eusabio Andrade hands over a balloon glass of bright orange liquid.
Claire Bell reports. The favourite drink of Madeirans. While the traditional poncha is a mix of honey, freshly squeezed lemon juice and rum, in recent years barmen on this Atlantic island have been experimenting with new concoctions. Andrade serves his with Grants whisky — a kind of cold toddy. That would be a waste. Over the past four centuries, the inhabitants of this mountainous island, miles off the coast of north Africa, have transformed the shards of an extinct volcano into terraced farmland that cultivates produce with flavours unlike anywhere else on earth.
And the local wine is no exception. Fortified wine has been made on Madeira since the 17th century. Looking for a wine to commemorate the building of the Eiffel Tower. Or perhaps a wine to commiserate the sinking of the Titanic ? For the first time in April they will bottle a Malvazia — a sweet wine — as well as adding a Sercal, a Boal and a Verdelho to their selection of 56 vintage wines. And although they do export — Luis finally convinced his father to begin exporting in the s — they only do so in limited quantities. Sitting at a table made from wine barrels, we begin our tasting with a 3-year-old, the colour of white wine.
This is the youngest Madeira on offer, because like Scotch whisky, Madeira wine must spend three years in a barrel before it can earn its title. Another similarity to Scotch is that Madeira wine is matured in French and American oak barrels, and never new wood — they constantly reuse old barrels to hold onto decades of flavour.
The older the wine, the deeper the colour. The ten-year-old reminds of a tawny whisky, a is the colour of cognac, while a Sercal — a dry fortified wine — has a smoky taste with the colour of port. An appropriate description, considering where the grapes are grown. Up in the peaks to the west of Funchal is the main winegrowing region. Small-scale farmers train the vines to grow up steep slopes and these near-vertical vineyards are irrigated by levadas, a network of high-altitude irrigation channels that filter the water from the rainy northwest of the island to the sunny, dry south.
There are over km of levadas criss-crossing the island, and the fact that they are level make them popular hiking trails with tourists and locals alike. Just outside the town of Estreito de Camara de Lobos — home to Restaurant Es Vides, which claims to have invented espetada — you can pick up the Levada do Norte. Within seconds of entering the levada you are walking in an archway of vines, a man-made pergola connecting the balconies of colourful homes with their terraced farmland. There is something very peaceful and satisfying about walking the levadas — waterways that connect villages, homes and livelihoods, a poetic reminder of how interconnected all of human life is.
No man is an island, especially not on an island. An excellent bus network means you can follow the levadas for as long as you feel, and then pop out at a village to make your way back. Curiously, it turns out that nearly every tiny bar next to a bus stop across the island has this single malt on offer. Again and again they shrug.
For over a century Madeira has been a popular tourist destination — especially during the winter when the island basks in daily temperatures of 22C. Today the island receives one million visitors annually — four times the local population. It was Winston Churchill who first put the island on the British tourist map. Fortunately there are many more relaxed five-star boltholes, including Jardin do Largo, the former home of General Beresford, Commander of the British forces during the Napolenoic wars, set in 2. The gardens are home to over different species of plants, a year-old giant tortoise called Colombo, and a heated pool, where you can easily idle away entire winter days occasionally glancing up to note the orchids, camellias and bougainvillea in bloom.
Here, where forested cliffs and waterfalls plunge into a turquoise and deep indigo sea, the chef formerly of Reids serves up sea bass served with saffron risotto and champagne sauce, trout fished from the nearby cold waters of Ribeira Frio, served in a local honey sauce, and ice-cream made from Madeira wine. For those seeking out a quiet, epicurean paradise, while the rest of northern Europe cowers from wind and snow, this is it. We are always looking for ways to feed your curiosity about whisky.

The prime objective of The Whisky Shop in establishing this new App is to provide world leading standards of communication to all of our customers and friends across the world. Enjoy the magazine and enjoy your whisky! That would be Speyside, located in the north east of the Highlands. There, you find an abundance of hills, mountains, sparkling cold rivers, copper stills and water of life! Speyside whiskies are renowned for their sweetness and lightness and their popularity around the world has established some of the most famous brands in Scotch whisky.
In this issue, we focus on distillers at opposite ends of the spectrum. The first is the small independent distiller, BenRiach; the second is none other than The Glenlivet, one of the most famous marques of single malt Scotch whiskies in the world. We also put Aberlour and Longmorn into the mix. More importantly, however, our customers have consistently given this distiller their vote of confidence.
Built by John Duff in , BenRiach is one of the few distilleries with its own on-site maltings. It draws its water from the Burnside Springs. This is a testament to how good this single malt can be. This is a smooth and drinkable dram. Unpretentious in every way, it delivers an honest Speyside experience of fresh heather, fruit, honey and nuts. Not at all bad for a starter!
On the nose it is floral and fruity and on the palate there is the classic flavour of honey and vanilla with hints of cream, spice and chocolate. All in all a well-balanced and delicious malt. A peated malt — unusual for Speyside. BenRiach Curiositas achieves a peat richness through the use of malted barley dried in the traditional way over peat infused kilns. The BenRiach 25 year old Authenticus is the oldest Benriach peated expression. This malt is non chill filtered and of natural colour. The extra age in this BenRiach delivers richness to its aromas of fruit, honey and vanilla.
These translate on the palate to a delightful full bodied flavour with a long finish that includes spices, toffee and apples. This is just magnificent. On the nose the aromas are layered with spice, nuts, honey and fruits and on the palate it is beautifully rounded and rich. The finish is long and complex and simply delightful. On the nose it is undoubtedly peaty, but there are fragrant hints of honey.
On the palate, the expected smoke and peat flavour is followed by a complex mix of fruit, heather, nuts, oak wood and spices. Authenticus captures a fantastic fusion of rich peat and fresh herbs with a rush of honey providing a sweet contrast. This is a most unusual dram and not to be missed. It exudes all the wonderful qualities of malt whisky from this region and is every bit as good today as it has always been.
Having been financially successful for so long, the distillery has amassed a rich array of maturing casks of the highest quality and diversity. These are actively employed today in producing an incredible selection of expressions. Here are just a few. The Glenlivet was one of the first distilleries to use French Oak in the whisky making process, a technique that has since been imitated by many others. The French Oak increases the intensity of the whisky, resulting in a richer and creamier finish. Master distiller, Alan Winchester uses a combination of several different cask types to create this complex expression, with first and second fill American and European Oak featuring in the line up.
European Oak imparts spiciness and firstfill American Oak adds soft tropical fruitiness. On the nose it is rich with buttery notes and on the palate it is creamy and sweet with nutty flavours. The finish is long and lingering with a trace of sweet almonds and hints of spice. On the nose there are rich fruit aromas and toffee notes and on the palate it is beautifully balanced, with bursts of sweet oranges. The finish is long with spice and moist raisin notes. The Gaelic word for 'natural', Nadurra is the purest expression of The Glenlivet. It is batch-produced at cask strength using traditional methods.
Avoiding chillfiltration gives the mouth-feel more body and a richer texture, and stays true to the style of whisky enjoyed in the 19th century. The Glenlivet Nadurra represents both simplicity and innovation. The 21 Year Old is produced in small, bespoke batches with each cask being nosed and approved, making every batch unique.
A sizable inventory of whisky of this age is extremely rare and only the best casks are selected for this expression. The Glenlivet 25 year old is a very special whisky. The original character of the new spirit, fruity and floral, has been faithfully retained during years of careful maturation.
The final finish in rare, hand selected ex-sherry butts, adds a layer of polish and complexity, yielding a sublime whisky of silky power and elegant character. Matured in a hogshead cask and one of approx. It is very fruity — clementine, pear, a note of pineapple — with toasted almonds and moist gingerbread behind.
A long, refreshing finish. Maturation in first fill Amercian Oak casks imparts distinctive vanilla notes and delivers rich and rewarding flavours. This is an intriguing malt for the enthusiast. On the nose the aroma is of dried fruit with a sherry influence. On the palate one can detect cinnamon and ginger and the finish is lasting and warm with a hint of toasted hazelnuts.

The Oloroso-soaked oak imparts a nutty spiciness and enriches the flavour of the expression. Each cask is individually monitored in the finishing process to ensure only the subtlest sherry tones are added to this intense, silky and elegant whisky. What is it? This winning expression is created using a subtle mixture of casks including Hogsheads and American oak barrels with the addition of a proportion of whisky from Spanish ex-sherry butts to provide a rich, exotic twist.
Selected exclusively by The Guardians of The Glenlivet. On the nose it is rich and indulgent with hints of fruitcake and sweet, candied apple. On the palate it is nicely balanced, having an undertone of dark chocolate orange with the subtle warmth of spice permeating through. The finish is long and slightly dry. Speyside single malts react particularly well to ex sherry casks.
Being light and flowery in the first place, they take on the flavours and aromas of Spanish sherry wine with considerable aplomb. Longmorn Distillery was founded in by John Duff and two associates at a time when the whisky industry was booming. The malt produced here has long been a favourite of blenders who rate it very highly. This award winning, non chill filtered, Aberlour expression offers a generous whisky that has been expertly crafted.
Every ex-sherry cask is nosed even before being filled with spirit and then, before being passed for bottling, every cask of mature whisky used is personally nosed by a member of the whisky making team. Aberlour 16 year old is matured in a combination of ex bourbon casks and the finest ex sherry butts. This maturation ensures the depth of character as well as the distinctive fruitiness and spiciness of Aberlour.
Aromas of juicy fruits, lemons and grapefruit before it sweetens. On the palate there are initial flavours of orange dipped in chocolate leading to spices, clove and ginger, before a finish which is both herbal and earthy. Creamy with sweet raisin aromas and a spicy nuttiness on the nose with a smooth blend of floral and spicy taste, paired with a sweet plum fruitiness and gentle oakiness.
Finishing gloriously long, with a warm, honeyed spiciness. The Aberlour distillery produces a new make spirit of exceptional quality with striking depth and a clean, crisp and fruity flavour. Matured in the highest quality casks, where it develops deep Bourbon and Oloroso Sherry flavours, this is the richest and most indulgent Aberlour expression. Perfect in structure and memorably eloquent. Aberlour A'bunadh, Gaelic for 'of the origin', is matured exclusively in ex-Oloroso sherry butts. It is a natural caskstrength malt whisky produced without the use of chill-filtering methods or the addition of water.
A 19th Century-style whisky - dark, luxurious and powerful - this is an award winning whisky and a superb after-dinner malt. The distillery's name derives from the church of St Marnoch near the Elgin to Rothes road, in turn named for a 7th century missionary who brought Christianity to the Picts of Moray. Longmorn 16 year old is in great demand not only as a single malt but as the 'top dressing' in many of Scotland's finest blended whiskies.
On the nose it is rich and complex, with notes of toffee and butterscotch combining with ripe fruits. On the palate it is superbly structured, with initial notes of soft apricot and cream, offset by developing flavours of old leather and oak, with a touch of honey. Terrific aromas of allspice, praline and spiced orange hit the nose and on the palate there is orange, black cherries, dried fruit and ginger, spiked with dark bitter chocolate.
Superlatively full bodied and creamy. The finish is robust and long lasting. Longmorn uses fat, plain stills which are said to create complexity. The product is described as sweet, fruity, with depth as well as breadth, while being fragrant yet powerful. It is gentle and honeyed in American oak barrels, richer and more spicily expansive in good quality hogsheads, darkly rich and powerful in ex-sherry butts. It may surprise many readers to know that all Speyside distilleries were founded for the principal purpose of making malt whisky for blending. When combined with the soft, neutral tones of grain whiskies, Speyside malts sing and the end result is an excellent blend.
Smokey Islay malts would be added in very small doses only to give the blend some edge. So on the subject of blends here are some mighty offerings. Initially produced in for the Queen's Coronation and drawing from the exceptionally aged range of casks laid down over the years by Chivas Brothers, Charles Julien, Master Blender, skilfully married the powerful flavours of whiskies aged no less than 21 years to craft a blend fit for royalty. It was named Royal Salute 21 Years Old, in reference to the long tradition of firing cannons as a sign of respect or welcome to sovereigns and dignitaries: the Gun Royal Salute.
Over the years, this special blend has stayed true to its roots. The porcelain flagon, crafted by the world-famous artisans at Wade, is sculpted in Cornish clay from the Jurassic-era, then naturally air-dried and finished by hand with a double layer of glazing to protect its precious contents. The three different colours of glaze used to dress the flagons - Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald - symbolize the precious gems on the Imperial State Crown.
