New in from North Star
Late last year we were fortunate enough to be one of the few retailers to get a wonderful selection of new whiskies from a brand new independent bottler called North Star. Based in the picturesque village of Blanefield just north of Glasgow, North Star only came in to being in 2016, but have made a very impressive mark on the whisky industry in that time.
The first releases (batch 001) were extremely well received and sold out in an exceptionally quick period of time. As a matter of fact they were so well received, that we have been inundated with requests from customers asking when batch 2 would arrive. Finally after a long wait, they are here!
This second batch is probably even more impressive than the first; one of the best is the North Star Bunnahabhain 1986, this 30 year old whisky 'Opens with molten honey, barley and buttery oak, followed by gentle tropical fruit, salt and citrus. The oak displays a lovely, mature sawdusty character...'. Our resident whisky expert Chris Goodrum is a very lucky man indeed as he has reviewed them all, which you can view here
