The first release of our collaboration – Mortlach. This is the oldest distillery in the modern capital of whisky production – Dufftown. Founded in 1823, the distillery still produces old-style whisky.

Ukrainian Whisky Connoisseurs Club’s Choice Allt-A-Bhainne 9 Years Old White Muscat Red Stone, 53,2%
The process of whisky maturation in different casks is very fascinating and sometimes unpredictable. Years and years of such experiments allow us to affirm that the brighter and more distinctive was the wine in the cask, the more features it can convey to whisky. To date, whisky has been aging in port wine, chardonnay, marsala, sauternes casks, but never in wine casks produced in Massandra. For the experiment, UWCC members and Whisky Corner experts have chosen White Muscat Red Stone cask.
Ukrainian Whisky Connoisseurs Club Choice
Caol Ila 7 Years Old
Port Livadia, 58%
Ukrainian Whisky Connoisseurs Club named after A.Ya. Savchenko has nurtured for a long time the idea to experiment with maturation in vintage Massandra fortified wines casks. In 2016 we were lucky to find a unique cask at the best winery of southern Crimea, where the popular port wine “Livadia” was produced. The winery was a property of Count Vorontsov. During 50 years, this cask has been used only for Livadia port wine maturation in Count Vorontsov’s cellars, which were near Alupka city. For the further maturation in this cask, our experts have chosen a pure island peated whisky from an eminent Caol Ila distillery.
Ukrainian Whisky Connoisseurs Club’s Choice Caol Ila 12 Year Old, 57,5%
Caol Ila whisky, which was selected by our experts and has been aging for 14 years in a bourbon barrel, was divided into two parts. The first part was bottled, and now you are seeing it. And the second part was placed in a white port cask for further aging.
Thus, whisky lovers will have a unique opportunity to try Caol Ila whisky before and after the aging in a wine cask and evaluate the effect of cask on it.
Fettercairn 22 Years Old
Rare Stock Brandy / Red Livadiya IRA’s Cask, 49%
Fettercairn whisky has been aging in a bourbon cask for 22 years. Then it was placed for further maturation in unique Quarter Cask, where first was cognac, and then red port, which distinguished by dark garnet color and velvety taste. Typically, for further maturation, either smaller casks or brandy or wine casks are used.
In our case, we combined three types to hone the taste of whisky, fill it with the necessary aromas and notes. When you hold a glass of Fettercairn whisky, breath its aroma and taste it, you feel yourself a part of something beautiful and sublime.
Ukrainian Whisky Connoisseurs Club’s Choice Teaninich 14 Year Old, 54%
Teaninich whisky is a noble drink whose luxurious aroma has incorporated the fragrance of magnificent flowers, Japanese green tea and candied fruits. The taste is warming, but very light and pleasant. The finish is long, accompanied by notes of spices and ripe fruit.
Ukrainian Whisky Connoisseurs Club’s Choice Craigellachie 14 Year Old Kokur, 52%
Craigellachie is slightly untypical representer of Speyside region. For its production, a white grape Kokur is used, which the Greeks began to grow on the island of Corfu. It containing the flavors of Kokur makes the “shy” whisky open, show its best sides and refute the wrong opinion about its heaviness. As a result, we expect a full-bodied, slightly oily Craigellachie whisky that meets the ancient traditions of Speyside.

Linkwood is light floral whisky and considered one of the best among its brethren.
