We’ve selected some of the best whiskies available that honour Scotland’s proud history and give you the chance to enjoy some truly amazing whisky.

Highland Park 18-Year-Old Single Malt
One of Highland Park’s most popular expressions, and you can understand why. A wonderfully balanced single malt with sweet toffee taste opening on the palate followed by a silky smokey finish.

Highland Park 18 Year Old – £130

Lagavulin 16-Year-Old Single Malt
This is a quality single malt for those who like a strong complex peaty quality in their whisky. Typical of southern Islay the 16-year-old whisky offers a richness and a dryness that evolves it into a truly interesting dram.

Lagavulin 16-Year-Old Single Malt – £59.99

Oban 14-Year-Old Single Malt
A full bodied single malt whisky with a soft hint of peat smoke where you can also find a slight touch of saltiness. That saltiness is quickly masked by honey and citrus notes that give the malt a smooth lingering finish.

Oban 14-Year-Old Single Malt – £56.99

Aberlour Highland 16-Year-Old Scotch Whisky
This single malt whisky is matured in both traditional oak and sherry oak casks giving it a balanced depth of flavour with distinctive floral and spicy flavours.

Aberlour Highland 16-Year-Old Scotch Whisky – £58.99
