Mood [July] : Everyday Dram

Jul 16, 2023

It is always a good idea to stock up on a good everyday whisky, so that you can have a delicious drink anytime, and bring some fun to your ordinary daily life.


The Single Malts of Scotland Reserve Cask Benrinnes 12 Years is matured in four refill sherried hogsheads and one sherry butt. It has notes of leather, Manhattan cocktail, cherries and spice. Sandalwood, clove and cinnamon. On the palate, chocolate and cherry abound and take on the richness of a black forest gateau topped with almond slivers. Ginger snaps with a cup of coffee, balancing the sweetness. A beautifully intense, spicy finish that fades to cherry cola and black peppercorn.

Summertime calls for some refreshing drinks, and there’s nothing better than Speyburn 8 Year, from Speyside and matured in Bourbon and Sauternes casks. Buttercream, pears, kiwi and melon on the nose. Pineapple, honey and a spritz of lime on the palate. At the finish, fresh fruit salad drizzled with a decadent honey syrup. Fruity and sweet, it's definitely an everyday favourite!
