October Featured Products: Tasting Notes

Macallan Gold

The Gold is the lightest of the Macallan 1824 series. An elegant yet rich style displaying notes of warm toffee spice alongside dried banana and spiced oatmeal with uplifting hints of pear. Sherry notes finish on a clean length – a perfect whisky for the transition into autumn.

Knob Creek

This handcrafted Bourbon pours a brilliant amber colour. The nose is fragrant with aromas of caramel, vanilla and a touch of sweet apricot; on the palate it is rich and full-bodied packed with sweet oak spice flavours.

Smirnoff

Smirnoff was the first vodka to use charcoal filtration in the distillation process to produce a clean crisp style combined with a smooth texture which is ideal for mixing. Try in a Moscow Mule over crushed ice with ginger beer and a squeeze of lime.

Croix St. Martin Bordeaux

With aromas of soft red fruits and an easy drinking style it is no wonder this is such an approachable wine. The blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc grapes impart texture and roundness.

Danzante Prosecco

The uplifting fruity aromas of pear, melon and stone fruits remind one of summer. Lively bubbles dance on the palate and while juicy fruit flavours refresh. This would pair nicely with salads, seafood and melon wrapped in prosciutto.

Perseus White Blend

This unoaked blend makes for great versatility in pairing with foods. The slight off-dry style shows just a kiss of honey and makes for an ideal match for your turkey dinner. A silky texture carries through the rich flavours of apple, quince and stone fruits on the palate.  This is sure to be a crowd pleaser for Thanksgiving!

Rockstar Fruit Punch

As the name suggests this Rockstar is punched and packed full of fruit tasting like a tropical summer salad drizzled in honey. A lively spritz helps carry it through on the palate.

Palm Bay Grapefruit

Bubbly light pink colour; aromas of fresh pink grapefruit dusted with sugar, rose petals and orange zest; on the palate it is refreshingly sweet and tart with flavours of ruby red grapefruit and ginger ale.

Grolsch

Grolsch lager is triple cold filtered making a smooth and light refreshing beer. The flavours show subtle maltiness with a faint tinge of hops.

Pabst

Brewed using American and European hops in the finest traditions for American lagers dating back to 1844. This is light refreshing beer with a clean crisp finish. An ideal beer for taking in the sun.

Sleeman Original

The Original Draught combines Sleeman's premium brewing heritage with the freshness and sociability of traditional draught beer. The aroma is of sweet, with a hint of a yeasty malt note. This unpasteurized lager goes down well in the company of friends.

Parkside Pale

Relaxed west coast pale ale with an emphasis on hops rather than bitterness. Subtle malt combined with hop aromatics create a highly satisfying pale ale for any occasion

Yellow Dog Play Dead IPA

One of the finest IPAs around. Amber in colour bursting with citrusy hops and a medium bodied malt bill.
