A potent, high-strength 12yo single malt from Benriach with one extremely unusual feature - it's been triple-distilled. Horizons has also been finished in sherry casks after initial maturation in bourbon wood, and has been bottled without colouring or chill-filtration. IWSC 2011 Gold Medal Winner
The 2010 official release for Hazelburn, Springbank's triple-distilled, unpeated single malt, which is now fully mature. It's quite a colour too, suggesting some sherry influence in the final make-up. Well-priced, we expect this to go quickly.
Following the recent renaissance at Springbank any addition to the standard offering is always something to be happy about, so this cask strength 12yo (matured in 60% first fill and 40% refill sherry hogsheads) will be welcomed with open arms. Initial reports are good on this one.
'Yamazaki 12 year Old is a pioneering malt in Japan, for which Suntory deserve great credit. In its early days, it was rounded and delicate...now it is more intense, confident and elegant. 8/10' Michael Jackson, Whisky Magazine, Oct 2002 IWSC 2011 Gold Medal Winner - Best in Class
A stunning 12 year-old blend from Hibiki, some of the whisky has been part-matured in plum liqueur casks. Lovely malt from Hakushu and Yamazaki, plus some aged grain from Chita, this terrific Japanese blend picked up the top prize in its category at the World Whisky Awards 2010 IWSC 2012 - Gold Medal - Whisk(e)y Worldwide
A beautiful presentation pack from Suntory, pairing up a bottle of Hibiki 12 year old with a delicate nosing glass, all wrapped up in a light wooden box. The whisky itself is an excellent example of Japanese blending: sweet, perfumed and fruity.
A second entry into the 'Spot' range, aged for 12 years and made up in part from spirit matured in malaga casks for a sweet and moreish dram.

Malt Advocate 19th Annual Awards: Irish Whiskey of the Year
The oldest expression in the Connemara range, this fine 12 Year Old peated Irish single malt from the Cooley distillery has won several awards including a Gold medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Fair.
Distilled in 1999, the 2011 release of the unpeated Caol Ila 12yo is an absolute belter - and amazingly easy to drink, even at its slightly scary full strength of 64%. Bottled from first fill ex-bourbon American oak casks, this was one of our favourites in the 2011 Special Releases.
Formerly known as '1780' in reference to the year the original Jameson distillery in Bow Street, Dublin, was founded, this has recently been relaunched as 'Special Reserve'. A smooth, spicy, sweet potstill-based blend.
The 12th release of 12 year old Lagavulin from Diageo's Special Releases range. A perennial favourite, balancing price against a punchy cask strength edition of whisky from one of Islay's most mysterious distilleries.
Deliciously smooth, with rich dried fruits and sherry, balanced with wood smoke and spice. Described by Paul Pacult, the renowned international whisky writer, in his book Kindred Spirits as: "simply the best 12 Year Old single malt around".
