Some special treats for Christmas

It’s not in our tradition to consider Christmas as a triumph of consumerism or excess. Not at all: the best way to spend the festive season, for us, is to stay at home with the family and some selected friends, to relax and enjoy the warmth of those we love.

It must also be said, though, that this was a particularly hard year for many reasons. So, to celebrate Christmas and to welcome a hopefully happier New Year, we thought that a fine dram of a particularly good whisky would help us cheer our moods. After all, we deserve it, don’t we? A special treat, a once-in-a-while luxury, for ourselves to rejoice... or as a gift to someone we really care for.

Our suggestions for two really unique and special single malts fall on these lovely bottlings…

 

 

Bunnahabhain 30yo 1989-19 "Sherry Finish Oloroso"
Casks #5681-5683 47.6% W&M313:

This is particularly delicate malt, with all the nuances and complexity of ripe fruits and honey. Luscious, intricate and spellbinding: an angelic dram

Caol Ila 25yo 1995-20 "Sherry Wood"
Half of Butt #10024 59.8% W&M333:

A completely different one, marrying a strong sherry character with all the smoky peat that is so typical of this distillery. Robust, explosive, intensely aromatic: a good match for the cold season.


But most importantly, once again, let us express
you our best wishes for a very happy festive season…

Merry Christmas from all of us at Wilson & Morgan!
