The resulting smokiness is unmistakable with a peaty nose and flavor to match.

The (I)ntensity rating goes from light, fresh flavors, to rich with characteristics often derived from the wood selection and aging.
IRELAND Irish whiskey allows more of the natural flavors of the barley to rise to the front than Scotch whisky. Because it is triple distilled in large pot stills, Irish whiskey also has a softer, more rounded flavor than its Scottish counterpart.

Commonly referred to as Rye, it is not necessarily the case. The classic method of production is to blend rye and perhaps other whiskys, with relatively neutral spirit, creating a light and approachable whisky.

STRICTLY SPEAKING, THERE IS NOT A RULE ABOUT HOW WHISK(E)Y CAN BEST BE DRUNK. However, using some tasting techniques can considerably enhance the pleasure of drinking a dram. Adding water to any single malt changes the composition of the spirit and unlocks more flavors and aromas. We offer Hildon Natural Spring Water from the UK to maximize your tasting experience. Adding ice to a single malt can certainly make a refreshing drink. The coldness of the ice can sometimes impair your ability to fully appreciate the subtler qualities of a single malt. So, if you’re nosing and tasting, ice might not be ideal. Our Whisky selections contain an SI Index rating (S,I). This ranks the (S)mokiness and (I)ntensity on a scale from 1 to 9. A lower (S)mokiness rating means a more delicate, with little to no peat flavor, and moves up to discernable levels of peat from the malting process. The (I)ntensity rating goes from light, fresh flavors, to rich with characteristics often derived from the wood selection and aging. Explore the selections to find which style of Scotch Whisky suits you best.
