Global explorer We have a wide range of Scottish whiskies available in our stores but we also offer a selection of whiskies from around the world. Most Canadian whiskies are blends. The usual practice is to combine more than one spicy rye whisky with a further 15-20 flavoursome whiskies, and balance the blend with a high strength neutral spirit. As a result, the whiskies are generally light in body, smooth and clean tasting, but full in flavour. Canadian Club Whisky, 1 litre Our price £14.49 Tasting notes Bright gold in colour, with a fresh, soft aroma hinting at almonds, spice and oak. The flavour is spicy and zesty, with hints of wood and vanilla and a clean, dry and lingering wood finish.
The whisky heartland modern America produces Bourbon, Tennessee, Rye, Wheat, Corn and Blended whisky. Their distinctive flavours come not only from the different grains used for the mash, but in the way they are stored. Bourbons, for instance, are made from at least 51% corn and are stored for at least two years in new, charred oak barrels; Tennessee whisky is always filtered through sugar-maple charcoal and Corn whisky doesn’t have to be aged in wood at all. Jack Daniel’s Master Distiller No.2, 1 litre Our price £33.99 Tasting notes Hints of vanilla and soft oakiness on the nose. Vanilla notes follow through on to the palate along with nuttiness from the corn. The finish is pleasantly sweet with hints of maple syrup.
