NEW SCOTCH: We have a fantastic, rare new whisky in stock. Ever heard of Garnheath Distillery? Probably not. Only producing whisky for 21 years between 1865 to 1986 before being demolished in 1988, whisky from this Lost Scottish Distillery is very hard to come by. Our friends at Independent bottling company Morrison & MacKay have released a very limited 41 year single grain bottling and we LOVE it. We had a wee taste and you can read our blog here: https://www.thewhiskybarrel.co.uk/blog/post/tasting-garnheath This one is rather special!

Glenesk 1984 vintage Highland single malt Scotch whiskey. Matured in refill sherry hogsheads. Bottled 2008 by Gordon & MacPhail for the Connoisseurs Choice series.

Rare expression from the lost Scottish distillery which closed in 1984.

Aromatic with peppery and earthy aromas. Traces of dried fruits with smoky (bonfire embers) elements. A little toffee sweetness emerges. Sweet flavours with floral hints. Some charred oak notes with the sherry in fluence again present.
