Fabio Rossi has just returned from Malt Live at the Meydan Hotel: it was the first time for Wilson & Morgan in the United Arab Emirates, where we brought some of our most precious and rarest bottlings. It was also the occasion to launch the new Dailuaine 40yo Fully matured in Sherry Wood W&M484, one of the oldest whiskies we have ever released, available in only 297 luxury decanters worldwide.
A heartfelt thank-you to Le Clos – Dubai’s premier wine and spirits duty free store – for inviting us to such a prestigious event!
@wilson_and_morgan Glenturret 8yo Signature W&M522 48,0% "My personal taste for bold whiskies with a lot of personality is behind the choice of this bottling, enhanced with a finish for 20 months in first fill Pedro Ximenez to make it rounder and fruitier… but only up to a certain point. The colour is intense, the influence of the wine is huge, but this peated Highlands malt called “Ruadh Mhor” remains extremely unruly and muscular, turbulent and extreme! At the nose it’s very smoky, almost like a coastal malt, and rich with coffee, leather, damp earth. Very farmy, too, with notes of horse menagerie. The wine only enhances the very organic traits, rather than adding obvious fruitiness. At the palate it matches the olfactory impression: just as earthy and leathery, farmy and very smoky. But there is also a pronounced oakiness, and just a tiny hint of raisiny sweetness that makes the whole fatter and rounder. Very spicy, oaky and dark in the aftertaste too." (Fabio Rossi)

As our readers probably know, Wilson & Morgan has reached cult status as an independent whisky bottler in many countries all over the world: initially in continental and eastern Europe, then in the Far East (China, Taiwan, Singapore, Japan), and even a small but loyal following in Australia.
Considering the high quality and collectability of our premium bottlings, it was only a matter of time before one of the most important markets in the world for luxury spirits took notice…
This year, Wilson & Morgan was invited to the most prestigious whisky event in Dubai: Malt Live, organized by Malt Society Arabia. Over 50 whisky brands will attend, with premium cigar tastings to complement the experience. Held on February the 17th at the Sky Bubble – Meydan Hotel, this event will be our first visit to the United Arab Emirates!
To celebrate the importance of the event, Fabio Rossi himself will be present at the Wilson & Morgan table to introduce our whiskies to an audience of connoisseurs ready to discover our selections for the first time ever. If you are among the lucky ones who will be able to attend, expect some very rare and special new limited editions!

@wilson_and_morgan Ben Nevis 25yo Fully matured in Sherry Wood W&M527 52,4%
A new long-awaited release of our sherried single malt from the lovely coastal town of Fort William! A long finish of 55 months in a first fill Oloroso cask let it mature to perfection, to a full, juicy, almost overripe profile. It actually isn’t particularly fruity at the nose: it steers more towards a tannic style, rich with old leather-bound books and wood furniture, liquorice, and dark bitter chocolate. At the palate, it’s extremely muscular: fruity and winey, yes, but on the dry side. We find lots of pepper and cinnamon, huge chewy tannins, orange peel, a marked note of black and red tea, a touch of clay and camphor: it’s smooth but full bodied, with an oxidative note that obviously comes from the Oloroso. The intensity of taste is almost overwhelming at times, with the tight and appetizing bitterness of wood and dark chocolate becoming particularly evident towards the end.

A rich and deep Speyside single malt: the final 30 months in an Oloroso cask have contributed to its very autumnal profile, making it a perfect dram for those evening beside the fireplace. At the nose, the influence of the sherry is immediately obvious: very winey, with plenty of dried fruits and marked nuttiness, but also orange peel, cedary notes like from a cigar humidor, and with a lively spicy undercurrent. At the palate, it’s just as winey and sherried, and it takes water very well: the more you add, the more it exhibits notes of oranges, orange peel and tangerines. The spirit equivalent of classic English breakfast marmalade! It’s peppery, with a touch of chestnuts, nuts, and a moderate amount of oakiness. It becomes very dry and astringent towards the end.
