Whisky (Whiskey depending on where it was produced) has become such a popular spirit worldwide over the last few decades, especially since the mid-nineties, that there has been a surge in the number of countires producing it.
Nations such as Ireland, Japan and the U.S.A. have a rich history of whisky production but now we are seeing production in more obscure places such as South Africa, India, France, New-Zealand, England and Holland.
Long may it continue!
French - 70cl / 46%
Va va voom...from across the English Channel comes this, the Armorik Single Malt. The distillery is situated in Bretagne in the north of France and the whisky has been double matured in firstly oak and then sherry casks. Rich and fruity on the nose. The palate is pleasant with citrus, apple and s…
Kentucky Straight - 100cl / 46%
"Larceny" by definition is the unlawful taking of property. I don't know if the name suits this whiskey because at £39.99 for a litre bottle, it certainly can't be accused of daylight robbery!This is a thoroughly enjoyable, small batch whiskey to be enjoyed with friends.
Japanese - 70cl / 43%
The Hakushu Distiller's Reserve is a great entry level Japanese malt. On the nose peppermint, melon and cucumber. The palate brings through grapefruit, Yuzu, lemon and thyme. To end refreshing, subtle smoke.

Red Stag contains all the pride of the Beam family's 200 year history. Fine Bourbon infused with natural black cherry flavours.
Unaged Spirit - 75cl / 40%
Aged for less than 30 days this clear corn spirit is made using similar age-old methods as the original Georgia Moonshiners of yesteryear. It is not for the faint-hearted but certainly worth trying...if you don't mind going blind. (Only joking by the way.)
Arran - 70cl / 40%
A veritable breath of fresh air. Fresh and light with subtle hints of vanilla and sweet fruits. As blends go, for the money this is truly excellent. I think the Bard would have approved.
