New A.D. Rattray Half-Bottles

A.D. Rattray really has the interests of serious whisky drinkers in mind here. You can buy two bottles for the price of one and come away with two different whiskies in sizes you can handle on your own. Here’s what came in today:

Bunnahabhain 23 Year Old A.D. Rattray Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky 375m $72.99 - This is classic Bunnahabhain whisky, through and through. Supple in texture, light in fruit flavor, hints of earth and smoke, with that little kiss of vanilla on the back end. Lovely stuff.

Clynelish 17 Year Old A.D. Rattray Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky 375ml $49.99 - Bursting with lemon and juicy citrus, this expression of Clynelish brings the fruit up front before settling down into waxy oils and soft vanilla. A summer whisky if there ever was one.

Longmorn 20 Year Old A.D. Rattray Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky 375ml $59.99 - Lot's of big vanilla and fat fruit showcase what has become one of our favorite distilleries at K&L: Longmorn. Just another reason to start loving this whisky: big fruit, big richness, without the sherried sweetness.

Mortlach 22 Year Old A.D. Rattray Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky 375ml $67.99 - This Mortlach starts out lean and fruity before the remnants of the refill sherry butt come through strong on the finish. The cocoa and chocolate are but a whisper after the Speyside character of Mortlach takes your palate on a lovely ride between sweet grains and stonefruit.

and in full size…..

Caol Ila 21 Year Old A.D. Rattray Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky $119.99 - The fruit-laden, rounder profile of Caol Ila is on full display here. The smoke comes after the fruit and helps to wash down one tasty, mature Islay single malt. Yum!
