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.
Very popular at The Whisky Exchange Whisky Show 2012 this is a 12 year old Springbank distilled in April 2000 and bottled early in October 2012, matured for half the time in refill bourbon casks and half in fresh Calvados casks.
An exuberantly spicy malt, with plenty of sherry influence, Glen Ord is a fine example of the Highland style and very good value for money. This bottling is now discontinued, to be replaced by Singleton of Glen Ord, so grab one while you can.
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.
This is restricted to ONE BOTTLE PER CUSTOMER
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.
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.
A follow-up release to the award-winning and rightly popular batch B1/11, this is the second bottling 12 year old Cask Strength whiskey from Redbreast. A rich and complex single pot still Irish whiskey, packed full of flavour and a big favourite at TWE.
A cask strength distillery bottling of Ben Nevis 12yo from the 1996 vintage. This is another single cask bottled for Swedish whisky society TKS and, as with their previous port wood bottling, this has been re-racked - this time into a fresh bourbon cask.
Pittyvaich was one of the newest and most short lived distilleries in Scotland, only operating from 1974 until 1993. The distillery has now been demolished and this is the most easily (for now) available of the very small number of bottlings of their spirit.
Lagavulin 12yo is always one of the most anticipated bottlings in Diageo's Special Releases. As before, this is a full strength bottling from American oak casks. Malt Maniacs Awards 2011: Best Natural Cask Award (Daily Drams)
