Classic Collection Gentle GDO Whisky 3x200ml Gift pack:
Dalwhinnie 15YO 200ml:
Dalwhinnie has a little bit of everything, peat, honey and backbone. A classic malt for everyone. A wholemeal and honey quality to the nose and the odd smoky tangent. A sweet, fruity core and a long round finish.
Glenkinchie 12YO 200ml
The standard 10 year old Glenkinchie has now been replaced by the standard "12 year old". This is a fairly typical lowland whisky in that it is fresh and light in character, with notes of lemon and cut grass. A sweet nose and a hint of peat make this a good introduction to the world of single malts.
Oban 14YO 200ml
Oban has a sweet, peated nose with nuances of burnt heather, carried through to the palate with just a touch of creaminess.

Cragganmore 25 Year Old Scotch Whisky is a limited edition, natural cask strength Single Malt. A complex wonderful balance between sweet and dry. A splendidly mature, serious and intriguing whisky full of exciting and evocative aromas and flavours, which has a depth and elegant structure worthy of any study; adding water softens things yet also dulls this fabulous complexity.
Crystal Head Vodka is the realisation of the dream and vision of well-known actor Dan Aykroyd and colleague, fine artist, John Alexander. Both are avid researchers into the phenomenon that is the 5,000 to 35,000 year old Crystal Heads that have been found strewn around the globe from Tibet to the USA. This was the inspiration behind the extraordinary crystal head bottle and the purest vodka held within. With water sourced from the pure springs of Newfoundland, quadruple distillation through semi-precious crystals and with no additives, oils or sugars of any kind, the only thing needed to enjoy Crystal Head Vodka is a glass and one's own pure spirit.
The Dalmore spirit benefits from longer than typical maturation - 12 years, instead of the more regular 10. Judicious selection and the precise balance of American white oak and Oloroso sherry wood delivers the most vibrant expression - robust yet elegant, with an after taste of brilliant complexity. Deep golden mahogany in colour with orange, marmalade and aromatic spice on the nose. Elegant and rich on the palate with intense citrus and hints of sweet vanilla pod to finish, enhanced by increased sherry wood for an after taste of great complexity.
After a delicate and smooth approach on the palate, its roundness combined with its contained strength, unveils its purity and origin. Spicy, subdued notes of citrus fruit peel and flower prolongate this tasting.
The gin's nose yields a subtle juniper aroma with an undertone of mountain pine and other herbaceous notes. The taste is complex but strikingly smooth, encompassing floral, fruity and spicy flavours which can be enjoyed both straight and in a cocktail.
The founders were inspired to create Elephant Gin following their own adventures in Africa. With a vision to conserve the wildlife they feel so passionately for they decided to launch a product that would help conservation trusts. They strongly believe that this generation has a responsibility to support the African wildlife today, so others can continue to enjoy it in the future. With every bottle sold, Elephant Gin contributes 15% to two foundations that are devoted to the conservation of wildlife in Africa.
The House of G.H.MUMM wanted to pay homage to the ceremonial of sabrage, a unique experience. With great respect for the traditions, Le Sabre G.H.MUMM by Patrick Jouin iD allies the functionality of the object with an elegant and masculine design. After the neck of the bottle has been laid bare, the cork is expelled with the back of the blade, with a spectacular, masterly gesture.
