If there’s three things we’re big fans of at TWE (apart from alliteration), it’s summer, sport and special offers. Thankfully in 2016 we can combine all three – here’s my selection for the podium, based on the countries who are top in the all-time medals table.
1st Place – USA
Elijah Craig 12 Year Old Bourbon
The country with the most summer sporting medals of all time is home to a variety of styles of whiskey. Bourbon is the most famous, and our top offer this month is an aged example from Heaven Hill, the home of Elijah Craig. At £4 off, it’s even better value for money than usual.
Tasting Notes by Rocky
Nose: Complex with toast, toffee, marmalade, lots of vanilla and an underlying sweetness.
Taste: Big and rich with a creamy texture and notes of orange, apricot, cinnamon and a hint of liquorice balls.
Finish: Long and toasty with the spicy notes prevalent.
2nd Place – Great Britain & Northern Ireland
Chase Blackcurrant Liqueur
An apt choice for a country that has won more medals than it should for its size, Chase’s Blackcurrant Liqueur punches well above its price point. Made using hand-picked blackberries from the distillery’s estate, this has less sugar than crème de cassis but is fresh and very fruity. It’s currently on offer at more than 40% off.
Producer’s Tasting Notes
Appearance: Clear, deep burgundy in colour.
Nose: A beautifully ripe blackcurrant nose.
Palate: Rich but not overly sweet palate with natural-tasting blast of blackcurrant fruit.
Finish: Rich fruit continues through the finish.
Serving suggestion: This can be used to replace traditional crème de cassis in a Kir Royale.
3rd Place – France
Mumm de Cramant Blanc de Blancs Champagne
First created in 1882 exclusively for friends of the house, Mumm de Cramant is made entirely with Chardonnay grapes grown in the grand-cru village of Cramant in the Côtes des Blancs. We’re currently offering £10 off the standard price.
Producer’s Tasting Notes
Appearance: A pure, luminous colour sparkling with fine, delicate bubbles.
Nose: Hints of scented white blossoms, lemon and fresh fruit.
Palate: A subtle and elegant attack that is rich in minerals, leading into a smooth body and a rich and expressive finish that testifies to its ageing potential.
Food Pairing: Blanc de Blancs is perfect when served as an aperitif or to accompany fish or seafood dishes: carpaccio of scallops, lobster served with crispy spring vegetables, or oysters.
We always have lots of special offers so check out our current deals on whisky, spirits and Champagne. There’s a mixture of money-saving deals and free gifts, so why not take advantage and enjoy the summer of sport with something new?
