Lost Years Navy Strength Gold Rum

Price £35.95 (US $46.84) for 700ml

Despite its hefty ABV, this sea-turtle-saving distillery’s Navy Strength expression was praised for its “bright and tropical palate, with pineapple, papaya”, and was subsequently presented with a Gold medal.

This Jamaican rum presented the natural sweetness of molasses, and the higher alcohol level offers a pleasantly smooth tingle rather an aggressive punch; like stepping off a plane in the Caribbean to a warm, inviting breeze.

Lost Year’s Navy Strength Rum is bottled at 54.5% ABV.




This young distillery has already made quite an impact on the whisky industry as a pioneer of sustainability. However, it is, of course, the liquid bottled in the 100% recycled clear glass that was judged in our blind tasting. The judges were impressed by the “floral and bright” notes they picked up from this organic Scotch, which the Nc’nean team recommend serving with soda water for a refreshing Highball.

However, it was not the spelling of this whisky that made it stand out to our judges. The compliments came in thick and fast for the liquid’s approachability and ease of drinking. A perfect bottle for those looking to expand their horizons in the blended category, with “a nose of butterscotch and malty notes” and “some lovely caramel character”.

麦康奈尔(McConnell)的爱尔兰威士忌(Irish Wishkey)装瓶为42%ABV。贝尔法斯特酿酒厂公司被授予已久的期待计划批准去年建造2500万英镑(3470万美元)的威士忌酒厂

Price £92.10 (US $120) for 750ml

With only 1% of Uncle Nearest Premium Whiskey barrels selected as single barrels, it is perhaps not a surprise that this particular bottle walked away with a Master medal at this year’s tasting. This is a special whiskey.

This exclusive and rare bottling contained a liquid with “beautiful honey and cream around the palate” with red fruit notes and cigar smoke on the finish. Bottled at cask strength, the Single Barrel whiskies from Uncle Nearest have all been aged for a minimum for 11 years.
