Highland Journey Scotch raises the bar

Highland Journey is a bold, full-flavored blended malt Scotch whisky from Hunter Laing & Company. It is inspired by a train journey in the 1950’s, when Stewart Laing’s father took him to the Highlands to visit distilleries, igniting his passion for whisky.

Highland Journey includes only malt whiskies from Highland distilleries such as Blair Athol, Clynelish, and Teaninich, matured in both oak bourbon and Spanish sherry casks.

Its nose begins reminiscent of porridge before sweeter notes of freshly baked brown bread, vanilla fudge, floral heather, and red apple skin appear.

Its palate has a decidedly creamy and buttery mouthfeel that is surprisingly sweet at first, with front flavors of lemon cake and vanilla custard. It then swiftly develops into bold, spicy notes of cinnamon and cracked black pepper, leading to a medium length, malty finish with elements of honeyed barley and crushed almonds.

At 46.2% ABV, it has a nice tempered heat and is pleasant for both sipping and as a mixer.

You can get Highland Journey Scotch Whisky, as well as many other fine Scotches, at large, family-owned liquor stores that cater to the discriminating whisky drinker, as well as those just beginning their fine malt journey.

Race to Wyatt’s for Woodford Reserve

While some may be preparing their blenders for margaritas this weekend, the most renowned bourbon event of the year takes place this Saturday—the Kentucky Derby.

The Derby is the most famous horse race of the year, steeped in tradition, including a drinking one.

The Mint Julep, the quintessential Southern cocktail, is synonymous with the Kentucky Derby. Woodford, especially Woodford Reserve Bourbon, is the primary sponsor of the Kentucky Derby. Each year, Woodford sponsors the great race, and raises a substantial sum in charity and sponsorship for the event.

For a great whiskey weekend, place your bets on one of these entries from the Woodford collection:

Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Bourbon: Woodford’s flagship bourbon is a clean, amber bourbon, with notes of dried fruit, mint, and oranges in its nose and a touch of cocoa and faint vanilla. It is rich and chewy, but smooth and rounded with flavors of cinnamon, toffee, and cocoa. It has a silky, smooth finish that is creamy with a lingering, warm tail. 45.2% ABV.

Woodford Reserve Double Oaked Bourbon: Sweet and spicy on the nose, Woodford Reserve Double Oaked offers inviting aromas of vanilla, honey, chocolate and cinnamon with a hint of dried fruit. The palate offers rich flavors of caramel, baked apple, brown sugar and marzipan, which merge with notes of oak, vanilla and honeyed apple on the long finish. Although the oak is certainly pronounced, it accentuates the complex balance of flavors, rather than overwhelming them. 45.2% ABV.

Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey: Specially selected whiskies are infused with the rich flavor of Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla. The result is a uniquely sophisticated whisky, bursting with the bold flavor of vanilla and the distinctive smoothness of Crown Royal. 45.2% ABV.

This year, Woodford Reserve is offering their classic Bourbon in a standard size 750ml gift pack that includes its own signature copper Mint Julep cup! These collectibles will put you in the spirit for the 145th running of the Kentucky Derby. You can find them, while supplies last, at Wyatt’s, where we offer you only the best for your drinking experiences.

5 Irish whiskies to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day 2019

There’s no better way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day than with a toast of true Irish whiskey. With its signature smoothness, sweetness, and easy drinkability, you can see why the Irish style is the fastest growing in the whiskey market.

For your celebration, try one of these festive Irish whiskey options:

Green Spot

A favorite of whiskey critics, Green Spot has an aroma and taste of orchard apples and toasted wood with a sprinkling of clove. It is full bodied while balancing the fruity sweetness and toasted oak spiciness into a nicely malted finish with accents of vanilla.

Redbreast 12

Redbreast is a very special single pot still whiskey that is matured for a minimum of twelve years in sherry casks and bourbon barrels. It is robust, assertive, and highly praised among whiskey connoisseurs. Its nose is nutty and rich with notes of dried peels and spice. Its palate exhibits essences of spice and freshly cut citrus fruit with hints of marzipan and sherry. Redbreast has a delightfully long finish full of creamy custard and spice.

Teeling Small Batch

This small batch bottling consists of hand selected casks which are given further maturation in ex-rum barrels imparting extra character and smooth flavor unique to Irish whiskey. Bottling at 46% ABV with no chill filtration.

Bushmills Red Bush

This variant is a bourbon barrel-aged specialty. Matured in American White Oak, this blend of malt and fine grain whiskeys is triple distilled for smoothness and aged for a minimum of four years. Its taste offers sweet, nutty vanilla notes, with just a touch of bourbon.

Jameson Stout Caskmates

Emerging from a conversation between their head distiller and the head brewer of Cork’s Franciscan Well Brewery, Jameson Caskmates is finished in stout-seasoned whiskey casks. While their triple-distilled smoothness is very much intact, notes of cocoa, coffee and butterscotch confirm the stout influence in the classic Irish whiskey.

You can find these, as well as many other types of celebratory whiskey, at large, local independent spirit retailers like Wyatt’s Wet Goods, who offers you superior choice and selection for all your drinking desires.
