Win six fabulous whiskies from The Whisky Exchange

So far as we’re concerned January is all about whisky so what better way to celebrate this fabulous drink than a case of six Scotch whiskies from our friends at The Whisky Exchange? It’s the perfect prize for any whisky lover and a way for those new to the spirit to explore its myriad different styles and flavours. THIS COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED

Here are the six and what TWE says about each of them. (As a whisky lover myself I seriously envy whoever wins this prize! See below for the closing date and T & Cs)

Bowmore 15 Year Old

This superb whisky from Bowmore has recently been named The Whisky Exchange’s Whisky of the Year for 2018, as voted by whisky-loving consumers in a blind tasting. Having spent its final three years in oloroso sherry casks, this 15 year old single malt offers an elegant balance of sherry influence and the distillery's fruit and peat characteristics – fruit spice and cinnamon meet tropical fruit and green apple.

Elements of Islay PEAT

PEAT is the perfect expression of smoky whisky, with all the full-on coastal character you would expect from an island whisky, as well as balanced sweetness. On its own or in a cocktail, it is the go-to peaty whisky for all, balancing serious smoky flavour with a sense of fun. This whisky is a blended malt – a blend of single malts from a handful of Islay distilleries, taking the distinct character of each and bringing them together, focusing on Islay’s most famous flavour – peat.

Compass Box Hedonism

Chiswick-based Compass Box is led by founder and whiskymaker John Glaser, a man who never tires of pushing the boundaries of blended whisky. This is a terrific blended grain whisky that is supple and silky, with elegant, rich flavours of vanilla, toffee, coconut and cocoa.

John sources the highest quality oak from the US, France and Spain to find the best wood for each expression and creates custom casks that impart unique flavours on marriages of some of the finest whiskies from across Scotland.

Edradour 2006 10 Year Old Sherry Butt

Sherry leads the way with this delicious single-cask bottling from Edradour, bottled exclusively for The Whisky Exchange. It balances spice against fruit and sweetness against char. Having been distilled in 2006 and matured in an oloroso sherry cask, there were just 683 bottles made.

Single Malts of Scotland Glen Elgin 1995, 21 Year Old

As a single cask bottling of just 265 bottles, this Glen Elgin release from Elixir Distillers' The Single Malts of Scotland range is a really special addition to the case. Distilled in 1995 and aged in a hogshead for 21 years, the distillery's typical fruit-cake spice is pushed through with a velvety texture and a long finish of toasted oats.

Port Askaig 8 Year Old

The character of Port Askaig 8 Year Old single malt brings together the robust smokiness and soft fruitiness found in the beguiling island of Islay. This is a whisky that would appeal to the most discerning of whisky connoisseurs as much as a novice whisky drinker. It is warming and smoky with notes of limestone, liquorice and dark peat.

I guess my love of all whiskies' are down to my Mother, when I was born, my Mother & Father ran a pub called" The Lord Nelson " and my Mother used Whiskey to stop me crying when I was Teething, well done Mam! I now drink any single malt with a tot of Peppermint & 2 ice-cubes', I am currently drinking Abnams single malt, and I must say I like a lot Cyril.
