The Dornoch is a single malt from the famous north Highland distillery of Glenmorangie and is exclusive to the travel retail sector.  It has been designed by Dr. Bill Lumsden, Glenmorangie's Director of Distilling & Whisky Creation, and combines whisky matured in first-fill ex-bourbon casks and ex-Amontillado sherry casks.  The name refers to the distillery's location on the banks of the Dornoch Firth, a large sea inlet and estuary.  Glenmorangie have partnered with the Marine Conservation Society for this release to assist with preservation of the Firth.

Review - Crested Ten

The Crested Ten is a blended whiskey in the Jameson range.  It enjoys a cult status as it is highly regarded but with a relatively small distribution.  Crested Ten has a higher amount of single pot still whiskey in the blend (this is rumoured to be about 60%) compared to most other Jameson expressions.  The other 40% is made up of Irish single grain whiskey.  These are aged longer than the regular Jameson blend and have a higher proportion of ex-sherry cask matured whiskey included.

Review - Benromach Organic

The Organic is from the small independently owned distillery of Benromach. When it was originally launched back in 2006, it was the first single malt on the market to be fully certified as organic by the UK Soil Association.  The whisky continues to meet their rigorous standards regarding the growing of ingredients (organic barley, local spring water and yeast), the whisky making process and the maturation in untreated virgin American oak casks.  Benromach is the real pioneer of organic Scotch whisky, having started production around the millenium.
