Staff Pick Notes

When I first had this beautiful coastal Highlands Scotch whisky it was very much a “where have you been all my life” moment.

If you are a fan of Islay Scotch this will give you an interesting alternative if you want to turn the smoke down a bit but still feel like you are having a relaxing day on the Scottish coast. If the big smoky whiskies are not your thing this Scotch remains restrained enough to give you the perfect opportunity to try something a little out of your comfort zone without fear of being overwhelmed.
