Father’s Day Whisky Tasting Set – £56.95 http://www.masterofmalt.com
A luxury Father’s Day tasting set containing 10x 3cl samples of some of the finest whiskies in the world, including famous drams from Islay, Speyside and even the USA. A very special gift for that very special dad! Contents include; Isle of Jura 21yo, Mortlach Rare Old, and Dalmore 15yo to name a few.
Caol Ila Moch – £44.75 http://www.thewhiskyexchange.com
Taking its name from the Gaelic for ‘dawn’, Moch is a wonderful newcomer from Caol Ila and is a must-try for fans of this outstanding distillery. Lighter in style than the standard 12yo expression, Moch is a fantastic easy-drinking dram.
Caol Ila Moch is the first single malt from the distillery to be selected entirely on the basis of its taste, rather than age, cask wood, strength or finish.
The nose is creamy and lemony, before a silky-smooth medium-bodied palate that still packs a peaty punch. The finish is dry, sooty and very more-ish.
Moch was available initially only to the Friends of the Classic Malts exclusively from The Whisky Exchange. We think it’s the best FOCM release in years and a very exciting addition to the Caol Ila family. Not only is this a fantastic dram, The Whisky Exchange are offering a free gift with a number of specially picked bottles. Simply buy any one bottle listed below and receive a FREE Whisky Exchange tasting glass and a FREE Classic Malts shot glass
