Arizona Highland Celtic Festival Whisky Sampler

Tour of Scotland Sampler
$30

pubhouse


Ardbeg 10 year: this wonderful, peaty whisky hails from Islay, an island known for its peaty whiskies.

Talisker Storm: from the Isle of Skye, this single malt wears no age statement, just a full smoky and spicy flavour.

Glenmorangie 18: this Highland classic is aged perfectly for fifteen years in bourbon barrels and finished in Oloroso sherry casks.

Aberfeldy 21 year: this Eastern Highland whisky took twenty-one years to get into your Glencairn glass. It’s worth the wait.
