FranksWine on North Union Street was chosen as the exclusive merchant to offer this rare tasting of $1,190 worth of Single Malt Scotch with The Exclusive Malts guru Jared Card! One of the most prominent independent bottling companies, Creative Whisky, has released another batch of their Exclusive Malts line to the US market. These malts are hand picked by founder David Stirk who is known far and wide in the whisky industry. There will be six single malt expressions and one special blend. The whiskies hail from four popular Scotland regions: Highland, Speyside, Lowland and Islay. These are Single Cask fills which were all bottled at Cask Strength and show their Natural Colour. Each of these productions was bottled in 2014 in extremely small amounts... note the number of bottles produced for the entire world! The Exclusive Malts are truly that - exclusive.

Special pricing for all attendees... Limited to 30!
5% Off 2 Bottle Purchase
10% Off 4 Bottle Purchase
15% Off 6 Bottle Purchase

Here is the lineup!

The Exclusive Blend of Malts 20 Year Old ~ Distilled in 1994 ~ $119.99
Finest Highland and Speyside Scotch Malt Whiskies all distilled in 1994, blended together and married in first fill ex-Sherry Butt. Natural color and without chill filtering for more flavorful Whisky. 100 proof.


Ardmore Distillery 14 Year Old Highland ~ Distilled in 2000 ~ 179 Bottles Produced ~ $139.99
There was a time when all of the malt whisky made in Scotland was made using barley that had been dried over a peat fire meaning the whisky was smoky. Whilst this tradition slowly diminished with the production of coal, there are a few distilleries that continue to produce smoky on the mainland. Ardmore is one such distillery and this heavily peated expression is a real lesson in the history of Scotch whisky. 108.6 proof.


Glenrothes Distillery 18 Year Old Speyside ~ Distilled in 1996 ~ 294 Bottles Produced ~ $149.99
Glenrothes Distillery is at the heart of the town with the same name. The whisky has been prized by blenders for over a century and by malt whisky drinkers when they could find it. It is now quite commonly available although single cask bottlings are getting rarer to find. This cask demonstrates all of the reasons that make Glenrothes so prized. 104.6 proof.


Dalmore Distillery 18 Year Old Highland ~ Distilled in 1996 ~ 297 Bottles Produced ~ $159.99
Dalmore Distillery is situated in the North Highlands on the edge of the Dornoch Firth. It is a rugged area of Scotland, full of mystique and charm yet the people are always warm and friendly. Expect the same from this cask aged 18 years in a refill oak hogshead. It is a rugged whisky, full of Highland charm but very warming. 103.6 proof.


Bladnoch Distillery 21 Year Old Lowland ~ Distilled in 1992 ~ 265 Bottles Produced ~ $159.99
Situated on the South-West tip of Scotland is Bladnoch Distillery. A picturesque distillery tucked away in a stunning, if remote, part of Scotland. This whisky, taken from a refill ex-American oak hogshead, is a glimpse into the offerings from this pretty distillery. 96.2 proof.


Speyside Distillery 25 Year Old Speyside ~ Distilled in 1989 ~ 186 Bottles Produced ~ $209.99
This single barrel of malt whisky is taken from a secret distillery in Speyside. Famed for its honey-richness and soft fruits, this cask does not disappoint with an added layer of vanilla in the finish. A classic cask from a classic distillery - sip and savour all of its 25 years. 97.6 proof.


Bunnahabhain 26 Year Old Islay ~ Distilled in 1987 ~ 297 Bottles Produced ~ $249.99
This cask from the Bunnahabhain Distillery has been maturing quietly in an oak hogshead for over 26 years. In that time, the oak has given the whisky a golden glow and a rich, dessert-like flavour. Time does not suit all malt whiskies but this cask has matured slowly allowing a gradual depth of flavour. 26 years well spent! 95.6 proof.
