The 7th release of the annual Lagavulin 12 year old as part of Diageo's special releases. Typically peaty and slightly more fiery than the standard 16 year old bottling, Serge Valentin gave this one 89 points over on whiskyfun.com.
Please note this is limited to 1 bottle per customer.
A special bottling of Laphroaig 12yo, this Cairdeas was the first bottling overseen by incoming distillery manager John Campbell and was released at the 2009 Feis Ile festival celebrating Islay whisky & music. Cairdeas is pronounced 'cur-chess' (more or less) and means friendship in Gaelic.
The 3rd cask of Benromach bottled by The Scotch Malt Whisky Society. This was an interesting time for the distillery. Distilled under the ownership of United Distillers (later to become Diageo), a year before the distillery was mothballed, and bottled a year after new owners Gordon & Macphail had bought it, but three years before it reopened.
An increasingly hard to find bottling, as it was discontinued a while back, from the closed and now redeveloped Rosebank distillery. A victim of the early 1990s downturn in the whisky market and producer of some beautiful whiskies. MAXIMUM 1 BOTTLE PER CUSTOMER.
One of 2012's most hotly-anticipated releases, Ardbeg Galileo is made up from casks distilled in 1999, some of which spent their full term of maturation in casks that previously held Marsala wine, imparting sweet tropical fruit flavours to the mix. Galileo's concept is in celebration of the well-publicised experiment whereby small quantities oF Ardbeg were sent into space at the end of 2011 to see how they mature in zero gravity or something. MAXIMUM 1 BOTTLE PER CUSTOMER.
An old bottling of Glendullan's 12 year old. This seems to be the age the owners believe is best for the distillery's spirit, as they have hardly released any official bottlings at any other age. We estimate this dates from the 1980s.
