An old release of Tomintoul whisky which was bottled for Marks & Spencer after 17 years old maturation. This limited release states that it was distilled "prior to 1969" and was bottled no later than 1987.
There aren't many bottlings from Dailuaine, distillery or independent, and this sticks out as even rarer due to it being one of the fabled Manager's drams - single casks chosen by the distillery managers and originally given to friends of the distillery.
A tad less peaty than early bottlings, the classic Ardbeg 17yo is still a great whisky, but is sadly becoming very thin on the ground as demand increases and supply runs low - it's now a good few years since owners Glenmorangie discontinued it. The first bottling of this sparked the revival of Ardbeg's fortunes after the takeover by Glenmorangie.
Please note this is limited to one bottle per customer.
This Balvenie was matured in barrels that had previously held whisky from Islay, imparting a peatiness to the otherwise unpeated Speyside malt. A slightly mad mix, this has developed a cult following and is consequently increasingly hard to find.
Mosstowie is hard enough to come by - it was only produced between 1964-1981 in Miltonduff's Lomond stills. But an aged Mosstowie 17yo from Sestante? Ludicrously rare. And check out the strength!! A collector's wet dream.
One of the legendary Manager's Dram bottlings, this one from Speyside stalwart Cragganmore. A single cask, chosen by the distillery manager and originally destined for employees and friends of the distillery. This one was aged for 17 years in a sherry cask before being released in November 1992 at a whopping 62%.
A lovely old mid-1990s Connoisseurs Choice bottling of Port Ellen from the not-often-seen 1980 vintage. Anything from Port Ellen bottled at less than twenty years old is quite rare these days, so this is a bit of a find.
A 1968 vintage Caperdonich, bottled by independent bottlers Gordon & Macphail as part of their Connoisseurs Choice range. Originally called Glen Grant No.2, Caperdonich was open for 5 years between 1897 and 1902, closed for 63 years, opened again in 1965 and has been mothballed since 2002. Bottlings form this distillery are therefore relatively rare and in demand.
A 1965 vintage Coleburn from independent bottlers Gordon & Macphail as part of their Connoisseurs Choice range of bottlings. This was bottled a few years before the distillery closed in 1985, bottlings from the distillery were always rare and are therefore in high demand.
A great looking 17 year old bottling of Caperdonich, released by Cadenhead's back in the 1980s. This one shows off Cadenhead's excellent typography choice for the distillery, assigning them the same font as The Goodies.
