For the lover of the unique

In the mid-1960s Gordon & MacPhail launched ‘Connoisseurs Choice’, a ground-breaking range of whiskies which, until this time, would not have been available as single malts.

For those with a love of peated single malts, Connoisseurs Choice Ledaig 1999 is the perfect gift. Matured in refill remade Hogsheads casks, this whisky offers sweet cured meat and stewed apple, lemon and lime citrus aromas, with a delicate menthol note developing. Peppery flavours with ripe banana, orange and mango are complemented by a milk chocolate edge, which gives way to a long and lingering finish. Connoisseurs Choice Ledaig 1999 is available to purchase in the UK at an RRP of around £65.00.

Connoisseurs Choice Tormore 1997, a pale gold Speyside dram, is the ideal choice for dads who like something a little bit different. Sweet and fruity with hints of toffee, green apple and subtle vanilla notes on the nose, the whisky offers sweet and peppery flavours followed by tropical fruit, with a hint of honey sweetness. With a long and creamy finish, Connoisseurs Choice Tormore 1997 is available to purchase in the UK at an RRP of around £65.00.
