Glenfiddich Project XX  Scotland

Tasting Notes: In spite of me not being asked to weigh in on this......... 20 of the whisky industry’s most exceptional minds came together to create this truly unique, pioneering single malt expression. With its deep golden hue, Project XX embodies the warm, fruity character of a classic Glenfiddich whisky with hints of apple blossom, summer fruits and ripe pear. But its multiple personalities are revealed with hints of sweet candyfloss, cinnamon spice, almonds and rich port tannins with the odd whisper of liquorice. Deep and mellow, the finish is long lasting with a lingering sweet oakiness. Goes with my various traits and characters and perfect for the encroaching fall weather! Woof!

Price: $108.99

Father's Day This Month!  Scotland

Tasting Notes: Since I've had my paws walked off these past few months while my Humans have been home more, I'm taking the month off! But, if you're looking for some good whisky suggestions for Dad, take a look at my previous month's picks. Depending on his style, you can't go wrong with any of these! My Dad will likely want me to take him for a long walk on Father's Day, and I'll be only too happy to oblige! Woof! Woof!

Price: $50-$300

Ledaig Single Malt  Scotland

Tasting Notes: Winter isn't quite over yet, so after my dashes through the snow, which I absolutely love, I like to come home and enjoy something that will warm me up and satisfy my fussy palate. Ledaig is medium gold in colour; aromas of peat, fresh smoke and dried pear; rich sweet flavours with a smoky, peaty, spicy palate; long finish. 46.3% ABV. From the Tobermory distillery on Mull, a Gold Medal winner at the 2008 International Wine and Spirits Competition. I know it's March and St Patrick's Day and all, but as a wee white dog from Scotland, I prefer my Scottish malts!

Price: $78.99

Great King Street by Compass Box Artist Series  Scotland

Tasting Notes: " A good blended scotch for the masses" was the distiller's objective. Containing 50% Lowland grain whisky aged in first fill American Oak barrels, the rest is malt, around 7% from Speyside and rest from 2 Highland distilleries. Aged in combinations of 10% first fill sherry butts, 27.7% oak barrels with new charred French Oak heads and the rest in first fill American ex bourbon barrels. OK, that's the technical stuff, but how doe it taste?? This very pale whisky starts off citrusy and apricots, with dry hay on the nose. Creamy like a creamsicle with waves of vanilla pudding, apricot preserves, marzipan in the mouth. With a medium finish, a little bitterness but wows with the vanilla and marzipan. A wee bit of green apple skins at the end. With a few drops of water, it brings the grass to the nose making the grains sharper, on the palate some smoke is revealed offering meaty peat and charcoal. It's a perfect dram for a chilly November night!

Price: $62.99

Dalmore 15 year Old  Scotland

Tasting Notes: I know it's summer, but the rains in Edmonton haven't allowed me to explore the trails as much this year as I apparently get a wee bit too dirty and muddy. I don't mind, it's the baths afterwards I'm not to keen on! So, to get through the wet summer days, I'm enjoying a few wee drams of this Highland whisky. A favourite expression in the Dalmore stable, this 15-year-old is elegant and smooth, with lipsmacking texture and the flawless balance one would expect from blending maestro Richard Paterson. Matured in Matusalem, Apostoles and Amoroso Sherry casks, it proffers all those winter spice, orange zest and chocolate notes characteristic of Dalmore. Slàinte!

Price: $$129.99
