Paul John Classic Select Cask – The perfect whisky for the Whisky Pro! The Paul John Classic Select Cask is a masterpiece, from selected casks offering exotic complexities, that takes you on a delightful journey across delicate aromas, juicy barley notes, a tinge of honey, a dash of oak, a twang of citrus and a myriad more flavours before leading to an elegant and memorable finish.

Whisky for Women:
Glengoyne 10 Year Old is a whisky loved by all, but also by many women. This is because of its clean, fresh green apple and toffee popcorn notes. Glengoyne is the slowest distilled malt in Scotland, allowing for sweet, subtle flavours and no peat is used in the malting process, meaning much fruitiness appears in this malt.

Who said peated whisky is not for Women?! Paul John Edited most certainly is!! With just the right hint of peat that rises to a crescendo of flavours be it chocolate, mint or mocha. Edited is definitely the preferred choice for most women.
