Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship Christmas Cake & Dark Chocolate & Medjool Dates & Cinnamon 8 Year Old to the United States at the moment (although we're working hard to fix that).

In the meantime, our friends over at The Whisky Shop might be able to help you out.

Thank you for your support and understanding 🙂

Christmas Cake &... Bottling Note

Festive flavours like Christmas cake, dark chocolate, medjool dates, and cinnamon are the name of the game here. And by "name of the game", we of course mean that Christmas Cake & Dark Chocolate & Medjool Dates & Cinnamon is literally the name of this whisky. What we've got is a superb Speyside single malt Scotch whisky, aged for eight years and boasting a sleighful of Yuletide elements, perfect for enjoying... Well, yeah, it'll obviously be brilliant at Christmas, and any whisky fan will be thrilled to find a bottle under the tree with their name on it. It'll probably be great any time of year if you're a lover of sherried single malt, thinking about it, but it does have that little bit of holly on the label, so, y'know, Christmas and that.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Dried fruit soaked in sherry, gingersnaps, brandy butter, clove, malty vanilla lingering underneath.

Palate: A big helping of orange as it arrives on the palate, soon joined by dark chocolate shavings, golden syrup, cinnamon sticks, dried cherry, dates, and shortbread.

Finish: The eponymous Christmas cake notes hang around for a good while afterwards, with hints of citrus oil and chocolate mousse.

Overall: Turns out that very descriptive name is... Well, it's very descriptive, and incredibly accurate, too!

Christmas Cake & Dark Chocolate & Medjool Dates & Cinnamon 8 Year Old Reviews

Good enough to buy a second bottle

This is a really great christmas tipple. But also good at any time of year. I really liked this. My wife really, really liked this. It's rich and interesting. Nicely balanced. There aren't many drams that could beat this at this price point.

A slow burn but very nice indeed

On first taste of this we weren't over keen. It was nice enough but didn't knock our socks off. However, subsequent snifters improved markedly and the bottle really didn't last very long at all.

Highly recommend this, but make sure you try it twice.

ok for the price point.

Quiet a good drop, not as Christmassy as made out, I'd have preferred it to have way more of a medjool date and Christmas cake flavour, but as a drink for a cold night in front of a good book it's not bad.

It does exactly what it says on the bottle, well worth a punt.

Took a bit of a punt on this and was not disappointed. It went round the table at my whisky club and was liked but all. Stood up well against whisky of considerably higher cost. It does exactly what it says on the bottle

not bad

A half decent whisky, just not a great one, not as flavourful as the labeling suggests and although it's at the lower end of the price point I've tasted better drams for less pound notes.

Brilliant for my tastes

I really like this bottle - it is richer than I was expecting and a very satisfying dram. The proof is spot on, not too weak or too strong for a weekday.

Good, not great

I wasn't convinced by this whisky at first, it didn't quite live up to the promise of its name, but it definitely grew on me. I'd class this as a good bottle to have in the cupboard. Not the first one to grab, not the most interesting, but a good, reliable, sippable drink

Disappointing

I was perhaps expecting too much given the price. Whilst I get a slight after taste of dates, the whole Christmas theme was missing for me. Indeed, the base whisky note was no better than a run of the mill blended offering.

Yummy and just perfect for dark winter nights

Complex as the name suggests with the fruit, for me, the dominant flavour, which was exactly what I wanted.

Wonderful

This is Christmas in a glass, absolutely beautiful dram which will become a staple for me going forward.
