Wonderful Whisky

11th December 2015

Aberlour 10 Years Old Highland Single Malt SAVE £8 at £24/70cl (was £32, offer ends 3 January)
Want a mince pie that takes your breath away? Well, this is it. The cocoa powder in the pastry is inspired. And the slug of whisky means a Highland single malt is the perfect accompaniment. This one has citrus to match the orange, spice to complement the mincemeat and richness that sits beautifully with the chocolate.

Drink it with... Chocolate, orange & whisky mince pies
Why not leave out this classic Christmas combination for Santa? We guarantee he’ll enjoy it!

1. Waitrose 16 Years Old Highland Single Malt £32.50/70cl
People often tweet me to ask what whisky to buy their dad for Christmas. Well, this is it. An all-rounder with a hint of peat, a lovely smoky mist, a twist of vanilla and sweetness on the fruit. And it’s amazing value – but there’s no need to tell your dad that!

2. Suntory The Yamazaki Single Malt £45/70cl
This world-famous whisky from Japan is full of soft fruit flavours, vanilla oakiness and even a touch of coconut and cinnamon.

3. The Macallan Gold Highland Single Malt £35/70cl
Created to showcase The Macallan’s two most important elements: natural colour and seasoned sherry casks, this delivers with a golden whisky full of citrus and vanilla.

4. Green Spot Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey £36.99/70cl
Give this small batch, rare, sought-after pot-stilled Irish whiskey a go. It’s full and spicy with hints of cloves and green apples.
