Here is a legit single malt Scotch that is less expensive than a blend like Dewars. It would be perfect in any cocktail that calls for Scotch or just with soda and/or ice. – Josh Mizrahi, Wine & Spirits Consultant
Can a glass of Scotch be refreshing? This bottle makes me say yes: lighter-bodied, unpeated and unsherried, it’s absolutely loaded with notes of lemon citrus and orchard fruit, honey, and golden wheat with an unending finish. – Jon Miner, Wine & Spirits Consultant
The Six Isles Scotch $39.96
The Six Isles Scotch is a blend of six individual single malts, one from each of the six whiskey-producing islands of Scotland. Simultaneously complex and concentrated, it stands up to its other smoky island cousins that cost twice as much! – Erik Guzinski, Wine & Spirits Consultant
You don’t need to look for Scotch that’s older than you to find excellent stuff. In fact, there’s distinction and richness that can only be found in the younger stocks. This Mortlach has a meaty flavor and robust malt notes you just don’t find in the old timers. – Sam Davies, Wine & Spirits Consultant
This complex blend of Macallan, Aultmore, and Glenlivet malts is a wonderful combination for any enthusiast or collector. Rare is a word that comes to mind. – Steven Bowles, Wine & Spirits Consultant
Kilchoman 100% Islay Scotch $99.99
Surprisingly lithe on the tongue, this blend of 100% Islay Scotch exhibits aromas of ripe orchard fruits, butterscotch, and a pleasing salinity. In true Islay form, peaty notes are present, though it plays more of a supporting role, allowing the nuances of the other flavors to shine through. – Keyana Shaw, Wine & Spirits Consultant
Craigellachie is normally reserved for Dewar’s blends so their single malt releases are a rare treat. The 17 year is right in that Goldilocks zone where time has tempered its sharper, sulfuric edges and harmonized all the flavors. – Amy Miller, Wine & Spirits Consultant
An ethereal Scotch from a historic, under-the-radar distillery. Notes of fresh lavender and honey mingle with lemon, vanilla and malt on the palate. – Gwen Connors, Wine & Spirits Consultant
You likely have tasted the whiskies of Clynelish in a blend of Johnnie Walker, but this special older bottling presents the legendary malt on its own terms. Notes of candied rhubarb and ginger, fresh melon, orchard fruits, hazelnuts, and spices swirl with a rich brown butter finish. – Vince Grace, Wine & Spirits Consultant
When I taste single malts like this, I am both delighted and surprised. Light in body with nimble and nuanced flavors, it’s a great value for a 12-year-old expression. I know what I will be sipping all summer! – Bambi Ray, Sales Manager
