SCOTCH WHISKY

SPRINGBANK 18-YEAR-OLD

CAMPBELTOWN SINGLE MALT

This dram won Best Campbeltown

Single Malt at the 2014WorldWhiskies

Awards. Made by the family-owned

Springbank Distillery, which was

established in 1828 on the Kintyre

Peninsula in western Scotland, it’s

matured in 80% ex-Sherry casks and

20% ex-Bourbon casks. All 100%

of the process of creating this single

malt is carried out on one site – that

is, at the distillery itself – giving its

crafters unrivalled control over the

quality of the whisky.

COGNAC

HENNESSY PARADIS

EXTRA RARE COGNAC

AC Cognac, France

TASTING NOTE: Golden amber

coloured Paradis was created in 1979

by Maurice Fillioux when Hennessy was

asked for an “ultra-prestige” cognac

higher in quality than XO. Everything

is there but no one note dominates.

Complex with a silky attack, it has length

and persistence. Made from 100 different

batches, the youngest 25 years old

and the eldest from the beginning of

the last century (1900, 1910, 1920), it’s

85% to 90% from Grande Champagne.

It has a timeless, distinguished elegance

and a personality that grows as you

swallow and comes back wave after

wave. Savour in a snifter – no water,

no ice, just bliss. Score:

98

REMY MARTIN

CENTAURE DE DIAMANT

AC Cognac, France

TASTING NOTE: Fairly complex nose

with ripe stone fruit, red berries and

floral notes. Full flow entry into the mouth

and equally complex flavours with peach,

plum alongside mango and pineapple.

Good balance of fruit and oak and some

well developed mature notes. Elegant

and rewarding. Score:
