The second ever cask bottled by The Scotch Malt Whisky from Imperial distillery in Speyside. This was distilled in October 1979 and bottled 11 years later in July 1991. The distillery closed firstly in 1985 and, despite a brief reopening in 1989, shut down for good in 1998.
An eleven year-old Clynelish 1997 bottled at cask strength from a single first-fill bourbon cask - something tells us this could be one of the more popular releases from the last batch of Diageo's Managers Choice bottlings. MAXIMUM 1 BOTTLE PER PERSON.
Only the second cask bottled by The Scotch Malt whisky Society from Glenmorangie. While the SWMS were bought by Glenmorangie in 2004 it took an extra couple of years before they managed to acquire a cask for release in the society's range. The society describe it as "Everything ... and the kitchen sink"
A single 1997 European Sherry Oak cask of Caol Ila chosen to represent the distillery in the cask strength Managers' Choice range from Diageo. This is only the second ever single cask Caol Ila released by Diageo after the wonderful Feis Ile bottling in 2009 (also a sherry cask, coincidentally).
A 1991 vintage Glenmorangie produced as part of one of their successful experiments with interesting wood. This was matured in new oak from Missouri in the USA and has a bourbony tang in addition to the regular Glenmorangie character.
An incredible 1978 Ardbeg with a fearsome reputation, bottled in 1990 by Sestante. Serge Valentin of Whiskyfun was underwhelmed and 'only' gave it 91 points - an impressive and very hard to find whisky.
