Rumbullion XO is a spiced rum from Ableforth's. Made using 15-year-old Caribbean rum, Madagascan vanilla, orange peel, cinnamon, clove and cardamom, this is rich and intense.
NOSE: Creamy, sweet vanilla and juicy, freshly sliced oranges. Mulled wine-like delivery of toasted cinnamon and cloves, with a core of well-aged rum. Notes of dark chocolate, ripe plums and fragrant oak develop in the glass.
PALATE: Mouth-coating palate with crystallised orange peels and a hint of blackberry. Soft chamois leather and cedar wood provide a complex backbone alongside cinnamon, cloves and liquorice.
FINISH: Long with notes of old-fashioned cola cubes and intense bittersweet orange. A note of toasted oak appears on the tail.Learn More
£68.50The result of the Allegrini family's expertise, this is a true classic of the appellation, a wine that embraces tradition and a sense of place. The wine has an imposing structure and depth, as much in its aromas of mature fruit and spices, as on the palate, where alcohol is sustained by balanced acidity and refined tannins. Learn More
A welcome new addition to the Ultimate range. Ardbeg An Oa is singularly rounded, due in no small part to time spent in the newly established bespoke oak Gathering Vat where whiskies from several cask types - including; sweet Pedro Ximenez; spicy virgin charred oak; and intense ex-bourbon casks, amongst others - familiarise themselves with each other.
Rounded and smoky aromas - like burning Applewood - with creamy toffee, aniseed, treacle and dates. A curious suggestion of juicy fruits, such as peach and banana. With a drop of water, reminders of Ardbeg’s classic fragrance – lime, pine resin, fennel, saddle soap and tar. A gentle waxiness, like fragrant candle wax, and hints of smoked herbs. An Oa gives a final subtle reminder of the sea with briny notes and seaweed but always accompanied with creaminess. A smooth, creamy texture leads into a huge syrupy sweetness, flavours of milk chocolate, treacle toffee, aniseed, orange and smoky tea leaves. Gentle, sweet spices (nutmeg & cinnamon), some cigar smoke, and a very unusual flavour of grilled artichokes. Wood is always present in the spirit, gently nutty and reminiscent of a carpenter’s workshop. A long, sweet finish, with floral overtones, mint toffee and some gentle malty biscuit notes. Lingering, seductive, gentle yet intense finish, with flavours of aniseed, hickory and distant subtle smoke.Learn More
Out of stockMultifaceted, notes of peat and little flourishes of dark sugar, freshly ground espresso beans, cereal notes and a most sophisticated tar. The palate is led by sweet, ripe fruit and black forest honey. A good helping of malt. The throne then usurped by a powerful peat and smoked barley. Very long finish with caramel and malt that weave their way through peat smoke and dark sugar and just a hint of fresh espresso coffee before it finally peters out. Learn More

The Caol Ila Distillers Edition bottlings are a reliable source of Islay awesomeness. They boast plenty of warming peat notes mixed in with lip-smacking sweetness coming from the Moscatel cask finishing period - all-in-all, much deliciousness to be had. This is the 2004 vintage Distillers Edition, which was bottled in 2016.
Nose: Honey, subtly floral malt, a crash of sea spray and a few touches of spearmint.
Palate: Salty peat smoke, golden syrup, a fiery kick of cinnamon and cassia. Some lighter hints of orange oil and jasmine tea.
Finish: Brown sugar, red grapes and oatcakes.Learn More
Moch is Gaelic for dawn, and this release from Caol Ila is an altogether lighter prospect than the distillery's excellent 12 year old standard expression.
Nose: Lemon sherbet and apple crumble topping with custard. Dry grass and not a hint of smoke.
Palate: Sweet lemon meringue pie and soft, very soft mouthfeel. The peat hits a third of the way in but it's restrained; soothing wood smoke rather than burning tyres, and it retains a sweetness throughout.
Finish: Soft drying smoke.Learn More
A deliciously fresh wine which perfectly expresses the complexity of the Charles Heidsieck spirit. Coral-like in appearance, with subtle orange reflections reminiscent of antique roses. Freshly picked strawberry aromas gradually become more intense, with home-made strawberry jam and blood peach alongside rich, warm notes of gingerbread and cinnamon. A vivacious palate full of red fruit, with some generous floral notes. Following a silky-rich texture, the finish is long and balanced.Learn More

After 10 years in contact with the oak, Armagnac starts to take on the aromas of ageing. The fruit that is still present, is accompanied by the first aromas of soft spices such as liquorice and cinnamon. Still quite fiery, this eau de vie will become more complex after a few minutes breathing in your glass.Learn More

Nose: Buttery malt and cornflakes, with underlying cut grass fragrance.

Singed brown sugar and buttermints start things off on the nose, with a hint of foam banana sweets. The buttery notes build, with spicy green leaves slowly replacing the mint. Sharp apple hides underneath. Sweet and fruity: stewed apples, banana, and candied papaya and mango. Cream then washes over everything, adding caffé latte and toffee sauce. There’s a hint of sharp apple skin and toasted cask stave under the sea of cream, sprinkled with mint. Green leaves and soft mintiness fade to leave toffee sweetness.Learn More
