At the Fox & Goose we’re stocking up on quality whiskies ready for the cooler nights of autumn and winter in front of the fire. Here’s what we have to offer:
Aberfeldy 12 Yr Old
A fruity, clean and polished malt with a touch of honey and spice, Aberfeldy 12 Year Old is an excellent introduction to this Highland distillery. 40%
Bunnahabhain 12 Yr Old
A giant leap forward for Bunnahabhain 12yo, this edition was launched in summer 2010 with a jump in strength to 46.3% and a declaration of no chill-filtration and no added colouring.
A peated Speysider from Tomintoul, this has been bottled at 50% abv and is well worth a look for peatheads looking for something a bit different.
Inchmurrin 12 Yr Old
A 12 year old whisky bottled under the Inchmurrin label, a lightly peated whisky produced at the Loch Lomond distillery. This is part of the 2013 relaunch of their range. 46%
Ledaig 7 Yr Old
A 2008 vintage Lediag from indie bottler Signatory as part of The Un-Chillfiltered Collection. Distilled on 21 February, it was aged in a pair of hogsheads for 7 years, before being bottled on 25 March 2015. 46%
Glen Garioch Founders Reserve
Highland single malt scotch whisky. Distillery bottling. 40%
Aberlour Double Cask 40%
This double matured version is a mix of traditional oak and sherry casks and is rich and fruity with delicious Christmas cake notes. 40%
Caol Ila 12 Yr Old
Caol Ila 12 Year Old is of medium weight, but still packing plenty of potent phenols, this is a refined, powerful dram with a compensating oiliness. A balanced, peaty beauty. 43%
Spring Bank 46%
Blended from a mixture of bourbon and sherry casks, the light colour of this malt belies the richness of its character. The nose has a wide range of aromas, from citrus fruits to pears and a hint of peat, while the palate shows touches of smoke, vanilla essence, nutmeg, cinnamon and the salty tang characteristic of the distillery. Picked up the top prize in its category at the World Whiskies Awards 2014.
Dalwhinnie 15 Yr Old
Dalwhinnie 15yo is a good introduction to the delights of single malt whisky – elegant, smooth and medium-bodied, with a light, fruity palate and a whiff of heather on the finish.
Laphroaig Quarter Cask 48%
A vibrant young Laphroaig whose maturation has been speeded up by ageing in quarter casks. This shows soft sweetness and a velvety feel when first tasted, then the intense peatiness so unique to Laphroaig comes bursting through.
Talisker 10 Yr Old
Talisker 10yo’s profile keeps increasing as more fans discover its intense coastal spicy, peaty character. A truly elemental malt. 45.8%
Glenfiddich 12 Yr Old
One of the world’s best-selling malts, Glenfiddich 12yo’s famous triangular bottle is a fixture in practically every bar on the globe. Light and easy-drinking stuff loved by millions. 40%
