New Scotch at The Haven

New Additions to the Scotch family at The Haven!
We welcome back the exceptional Edradour 10 year old – from one of the smallest distilleries in Scotland in the Southern Highlands. This is a rum-tastic sherry bomb on steroids. Or something like that….
Next up is an incredible Islay malt from Caol Ila, a Gordon and Macphail bottling, so this means it’s a little different from the distillery bottlings. We are loving the subtle peat and beautiful creamy mouthfeel. (yes, we said it).
Another Gordon and Macphail bottling rounds out this months additions with a Speyside from Glenrothes. A cheeky young number but not lacking in verve or majesty.
Check them out and join us for a Dram Night soon!

New Scottish Beer at The Haven in Spring

This is the FOURTH NEW SCOTTISH BEER in as many weeks to hit The Haven shelves and we just might have saved the best till last! This is an Ola Dubh dark ale from Harviestoun  that has then been aged in Oak casks that previously held one of the 7 wonders of the Scotch world, a Highland Park 16 year old. This screams out TRY ME! Bring a friend, grab a dark corner and sit back and relish this beer, it is seriously good and deserves a partner to appreciate it with. The perfect post dinner tipple. Put the world to rights or plan your brilliant future with this decadent ale.
Ola Dubh 16 pours black with a modest spattered head that reduces slowly, leaving behind textbook lacing. The aroma is delicious; smoky Worcestershire sauce, leather, iodine and grilled steak. Flavours of smoky-sweet malts, roasted peat, coffee beans and a well-bittered finish. Overall this is a rather exotic brew with a defined barrel influence. It’s refined rather than over the top and very delicious indeed.
