Athyr Single Malt

...it moves to chai, and apricots that move from bursting with juice to dry in the mouth, with sweet cinnamon, cherry’s, humbugs, raisins, and dark sugar. Its then the mouthfeel starts to come in, and the whisky is hot and sweet yet so incredibly dry, stripping all the moisture from the cheeks and tongue as though you’ve stuffed your mouth full of cinnamon sugar...

Elch Whisky

...Pepper moves atop raisins, plums, apricots and dates dunked in a pot of sherry with a touch of iron moving through, a mineral element that really helps to change the whisky up, and then it turns to a Christmas cake heavy on the ginger and cinnamon.

Da Mhile Organic Single Grain

...vanilla, marzipan, heavy musk sticks and a fistful of parma violet sweet, grapefruit with a pinch of sugar and a light sprinkle of parfait amour before a gingerbread Christmas house with thick royal icing. The mouthfeel is spiced, but tightens in a resolute rather than puckering manner. As the palate continues to develop, we see coconut biscuits...
