I have started to do some short tasting videos to help people work out which Whisky is right for them!
I've kicked things off by tasting the Glengoyne 14 Year Old in Douglas Laing's Old Particular range. Distilled August 2005. Ref DL13450.
Today was the day spent unloading and counting the newest shipment. Not particularly exciting stuff. But now the tedium is behind me I can get to the fun part of cracking a bottle or two of the new releases and slowly swilling the night away.
In the new shipment is a few from Morrision & Mackay in the (relatively) new Carn Mor Strictly Limited packaging. I've got to say it's a pretty smart change.
The first bottle I cracked was the 12 Year Old Glenlossie; I was drawn in by the rich mahogany hue reminiscent of the leather wingback chair sitting by a roaring open fire that resides firmly in my imagination as the most suitable location to quaff drams such as this. The liquids time lazing about in ex-Sherry Hogsheads is immediately obvious even before the stopper is pulled.
The Glenlossie is rich, with dried currants, pine forest floor, mandarin peel and banana bread. Undeniably moreish, and more than slightly irresistable.
Our brand-spanking new arrivals have just landed!
I'm still knee-deep in cardboard and wrapping tape as we unload these pallets, but have a look at a sample of our new arrivals here: selectscotchwhisky.com.au/new-arrivals.html
I'm especially excited about 'The Big Strand' Islay Single Malt Whisky by Morrison & Mackay. A stunning whisky, especially at the price.
It can be pretty gob-smacking to see the prices super rare collectable Single Malt Whiskies can go for, and Macallan often are at the top of the price list. This pair from the 1920’s are expecting an astonishingly high price. To be frank though I don’t like the labels :)
Why of why is it that no matter how hard I look through my laundry cupboard I never find anything like this? :(
What a special piece of history for the Glenfarclas to find! I can’t imagine this EVER being sold, but it would surely demand a pretty price if it did!

I’m really pleased to announce all the whiskies from my first shipment are now up in the online store!
Of course I have taken the opportunity to crack open a few and revisit them. I sampled most 6 months back so it’s great to be able to remind myself of their quality.
One that I really enjoyed was the Provenance Bunnahabhain 9yo. Buy here https://www.selectscotchwhisky.com.au/store/p17/Bunnahabhain-9
Super excited to announce that my first (albeit small) shipment of Scotch Malt Whisky's landed at Port Adelaide on Sunday morning. The whisky has just cleared customs, and I'll be collecting tomorrow. Over the weekend I will begin adding the new lines to the website, so stay tuned! Some very special whiskies in this shipment.
