The Classic Laddie is a light, un-peated whisky which has been trickle-distilled using barley and matured by the coast in American oak barrels. It is uncoloured, warm, nutty and toasty with citrusy and tropical hits with a honey and almond finish.

Robert Burns Scotch Whisky: £28.99

 Best Scottish Whiskies

 70cl / 43% abv

Some might say this is the perfect Scottish whisky to celebrate Burns Night, however, it is quite sweet so maybe leave it for a dessert or at the end of the night. It is a blended whisky matured in ex-sherry and bourbon casks which gives it a distinctive taste. Sweet, creamy, hints of nuts, honey, toasty malt and spices.

Benromach Organic Whisky: £40.49

 Best Scottish Whiskies

As seen on ‘How to Spend it Well at Christmas’, tasters remarked on the quality of flavour and affordability of this Scottish whisky. Brewed using organic Scottish barley and matured in virgin American Oak casks, this whisky has a hint of banana bread, coffee, the warmth of ginger spices, toasty oak and pepper running through it.

Ardbeg 10 Year Old: £41.95

 Best Scottish Whiskies

70cl / 46% abv

A very peaty, warming and mellow Scottish whisky here with a balanced smokiness, pepper and spice that lingers long after you’ve taken a sip. Very pleasing, like a tarry espresso with liquorice root and chilli kicks.

Glenallachie 18 Year Old: £90.95

 Best Scottish Whiskies

70cl / 46% abv

A complex Scottish whisky here that has layers of heather, butterscotch, spices, raisins and honey. Full-bodied and rich with a touch of sweetness.
