Tobermory is the main village on Mull and the home of the distillery. It is a dramatic location at the foot of a steep hill with the distillery signalling the begining of the village, which spreads round a broad bay. The distillery was founded in 1798 and the present buildings were erected during its first period of operation which continued until 1826.

Three years later the Royal family acquired Balmoral. The then owner John Begg recorded that he wrote a note inviting Prince Albert to come and was rewarded with a visit the very next day. Soon afterwards the distillery began to supply the Queen and became known as Royal Lochnagar. Over the years the distillery has been rebuilt three times, most recently in 1967.

Single Malt : MACALLAN - 10yo 70cl Bottle Hidden in a fold of wooded hills lapped by the waters of Ringorm Burns, it hurries on its way to meet the Fabled Spey below, and stands the manor house of Easter Elchies, home of The Macallan. The site of whisky making for many generations, the distllery was formally accorded legal status in 1824. It has since become famous as the seat of Scotlands most prized malt whisky. What is the secret of this legendary single malt? Since time immemorial, The Macallan has been distilled by craftsmen on the same estate in particularly small, hand-beaten copper stills and, whilst other distillers no longer insist on using oaken sherry casks, whilst at Macallan this costly tradition is maintained. The results are shown partly in The Macallans sumptuous colour, partly in the nose and wholly in the glass. Its preminence is perenially confirmed in blind tastings of the finest malt whiskies where The Macallan is time and again accorded the supreme laurel in its category, befitting the definitive dictum on The Macallan:- The single malt against which ultimately all others must be judged.

Single Malt : LAPHROAIG - 10yo 70cl Bottle Laphroaig Malt Whisky is distilled in the Islay region of Scotland. Laphroaig (pronounced la-froyg) is one of the most distinctive of all malt whiskies.

In 1847 Donald died in a somewhat bizarre accident after falling into a vat of partially made whisky ('burn't Ale').Laphroaig (Gaelic: The beautiful hollow by the broad bay) has its own peat beds on Islay. Its maturation warehouses face directly on to the sea.For many, it is an acquired taste, but one which rewards persistance. Its palate is smokey with a long aftertaste.

Lagavulin legitimately claims to be one of the oldest distilleries in Scotland.Distilling on the site is thought to date from as early as 1742. In the late 1700s it is believed that there were up to ten illicit stills operating in the district. By the 1830s only two distilleries remained in the bay. In 1837 these distilleries amalgamated to form Lagavulin.Lagavulin has been described as the aristocrat of Islays. It has an unmistakable, powerful, peat-smoke aroma.

Single Malt : HIGHLAND PARK - 12yo 70cl Bottle Located on the Orkney Islands, one of the northern most parts of Scotland, is the Highland Park distillery.

Made from the best Barley malted over peat fires; merged with the unique spring waters of the island; and aged in casks for twelve long years that shape its rare and very distinctive character. In 1888, James Grant, whose father was the manager of the Glenvilet distillery, became managing partner, and later owner of Highland Park. Its product retains much that is traditional, even original. It has its own floor maltings and peat beds (the peat is cut shallow to impart a light 'rooty' character) and two traditional peat-fired kilns. During malting a little heather is burned.The Highland Distillery has more than an affinity with the West Highlands in its flavour than with the palish, fragrant, fresh flavoured North Highland groups of malt.

Single Malt : GLENMORANGIE - Sherry Wood Finish 70cl Bottle This rare Glenmorangie malt scotch whisky has been matured for fifteen years in casks of American white oak, from the Ozark Mountains in Missouri, which have previously been used in the making of bourbon.The sherry wood finish Glenmorangie is a drink of real delight, a beautifully golden malt that has a sort of elegance about it. When you nose it, you get a complex aroma, with sweet sherry wine notes and traces of honey.Just add a touch of water and citrus fruits emerge and maybe a trace of nuts. After a few moments the nuttiness gets stronger and the scent gets sweetened with vanilla and caramel.The earlier winey notes now become more sherried, the flavour that comes through is full and creamy with subdued flavours which turn in to a light, dry finish, and there's a long lasting after-taste which engages the whole palate.There's a certain elegance about the sherry finish that makes it great to drink at anytime.

Single Malt : GLENMORANGIE - Port Wood Finish 70cl Bottle One of the very successful Glenmorangie 'wood finishes'.A remarkable malt, antique gold in colour: golden but with a rosy hue. This whisky has been matured for at least 12 years in American white oak casks and racked for several years into Ruby Port pipes for 'finishing'.Malt that's matured as normal in traditional American white oak ex-bourbon casks is then transfered into casks that used to hold fine port for a final period of maturation.The end result is a malt whisky with the colour of antique copper and a unique taste.Add a drop of water and the aromas you get predominate with butterscotch and dark chocolate. But there are also fresh minty notes and a certain dryness a bit like lint.The mouth-feel is really smooth, like 'sipping velvet', now that might be taking it a bit far, but it is voluptuously smooth.Perfect after a good meal, but it's such a fine, if slightly different, Glenmorangie that why wait until after dinner?

Single Malt : GLENMORANGIE - Madeira Wood Finish 70cl Bottle Madeira Finish is the colour of bright amber, with a slight orange tinge.It's malt that's been maturing in ex-bourbon casks up in the warehouses in Tain then transfered to large Madeira 'drums' for finishing. When you look at it you'll see it has an orange tinged amber hue about it.Add a drop of water and bury your nose in the glass and you get fresh black pepper, toffee, maybe mint, some citrus, but there's also a slight 'burnt' aroma lurking around in the background somewhere.As for the taste, well in the glass it opens up and gives you a deeper fruitiness and spiciness. Then as you drink it and it passes over the tongue it's spicey, but cool on the palate with a long dry finish.

Single Malt : GLENLIVET - 18yo 70cl Bottle Mature, honey-rich, velvet! A colour of golden amber and a rich nose with sweet and floral layers.

First comes a smoky aroma, then spicy top notes that develop into a characterful blend of sweet fruit with distinctive peaty undertones and a smooth, lingering finish.Its name, pronounced ku-ran, comes from the Gaelic for peat ember - this whisky's underlying theme. Its inspiration comes from the days when coal shortages meant greater amounts of local peat were used to dry the malted barley.

Single Malt : CARDHU - 12yo 70cl Bottle John Cumming converted the familial farm called Cardow into a distillery round 1810. He used the barley produced by the farm and he produced his own peat. The proximity of the river Spey ant the surrounding hills were assets for a distillery. He began as a moonshine distiller.The hills were a place of safety in case the excise men would visit him. The controls were frequent, and John's wife, Helen Cumming helped her husband with a successfull stratageme. She used to receive them very well, and to invite them for dinner. When they arrived, she put a red flag behind the barn. As long this flag was visible, John knew the excise men were still present, and he waited before coming back to the farm.In 1824, after the promulgation of the Excise Act, John decided to purchase a licence for the production of his whisky. This made made marketting of his spirit quite easier.During the 19th century, the distillery was rebuild 3 times. John Cumming's daughter in law, Elisabeth took the management of the distillery in 1876 and contributed to its success.She built a new distillery near the farm, and sold stills to a certain William Grant, who was on the point to found Glenfiddich.As most of the distilleries, Cardhu closed during the second world war.Renewed in 1960, the numbers of stills growed from 4 to 6.The distillery was called Cardow Distillery since 1981.
