Aberlour Forest Reserve 10 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Recently re-packaged and subtitled 'Forest Reserve', Aberlour's 10 year old is one of the world's top selling single malts. Along with the new look, there's been a slight change to the maturation regime - this expression has had an additional finishing in French Limousin oak barrels after spending most of its time in Bourbon and Sherry casks.
This bottling was first launched in 2014, to replace the Classic, and made it to Australia in the second quarter of 2016.
Triple distilled and matured solely in American bourbon casks. The result: a Lowland Single Malt Whisky with the sweet aromas of vanilla and coconut – along with the signature smooth, delicate, Auchentoshan taste.
Deanston Virgin Single Malt Scotch Whisky
The malt is first matured in ex-bourbon casks giving the liquid a wonderful zesty character, and then finished in new (virgin) oak barrels which impart additional wood notes including subtle spiced aromas.
Certified organic, Deanston produce their own clean energy to run the distillery. Bottles and packaging use recycled and recyclable materials.
