Fishing, from the Royal Brackla Distillery in the Highlands, was matured in a single hogshead cask for 11 years before being bottled. The spirit gives a wonderfully creamy texture, with hazelnuts and almonds balanced against a delicate creme caramel, with a touch of lemon oil. The finish offers a hint of white pepper along with chilli spice,which plays against the citrus oil and cereal notes.
Falconry, from the Caol Ila Distillery on the island of Islay, was matured in a single hogshead for 14 years. This is a dense whisky, rich with flavours of black pepper studded salami and rich smoked Gruyere, while lime citrus plays against dark chocolate. The finish lingers with notes of black pepper, charcuterie and lime zest.
