One Litre Scotch Super Deals
This is where the value is! Fabulous prices on big-name brands at direct import prices including Glenlivet, Glenfiddich, Glenfarclas, Highland Park, Bowmore and more. Many bottlings otherwise available via duty free only.
As the coronavirus continues to create havoc across the globe, no industry has taken the brunt of its force more than the travel industry. With flights cancelled and borders closed, international travel has ground to a halt. The immediate effect on Travel Retail / Duty Free has been so great, word is that some distilleries are suspending the production of one litre bottlings usually reserved for Travel Retail / Duty Free. Until the travel industry is back on its feet and there is renewed demand from international tourists, supplies of one litre whiskies and other spirits will most likely start to dry up. Already re-stocks of many Glenfarclas, Macallan, Bowmore, Balvenie whiskies, just to name a few, are becoming difficult to procure. Now is the time to grab these one litre super deals on Scotch whisky as supply is not guaranteed for the foreseeable future.

The lowlands whiskies of Scotland in many respects reflect the landscape they are produced in. The countryside is certainly not without natural beauty, however it lacks the dramatic and rugged contrasts of the Highland and Island regions. Lowland whiskies consequently are generally used as background material for blends and have historically been unappreciated (or at least largely neglected) by malt enthusiasts. Nevertheless, it would be a mistake to belittle the Lowlands. Their whiskies offer a refreshing contrast to the heavier, peatier malts of the north with Rosebank and Glenkinchie being two outstanding examples.

Other reviews... Glenkinchie goes from 10 to 12 years old. I think the two years have done it good. It’s deeper, more complex, with better flavor development. Notes of fresh cut grass, vanilla, bright lemon, and cinnamon, with a soft malt underbelly. So many people (myself included) would rather have seen Rosebank as the Lowland representative of the Classic Malts than Glenkinchie. But this is a step towards bridging the gap. Rating: 83 points - (1st Quarter 2008 Issue-Vol. 17#1) - www.maltadvocate.com
Nose: Mealy with some sweet grassiness. Apple purée, wet fern and a floral character (lilac) . Some toasty oak below. Good creamy sweetness. Palate: Intense and focused with real lemon tartness to start. Mellows into clotted cream, tangerine and a crisp oak giving balancing grip. Finish: Surprisingly dry. Comment: A huge leap in quality from the old 10 Years Old. 7.5 /10 - Dave Broom, www.whiskymag.com
