Introduced in 2010, this is the relaunched version of Bunnahabhain 18yo, with owners Burn Stewart having ditched the caramel colouring and chill-filtration and upped the strength to 46.3%. A triumph for 'naturalist' whisky drinkers and a PR triumph for Burn Stewart - Bravo!
Introduced in 2007, this 18yo Jura was brought in to replace the discontinued 21 year-old. Often overlooked for it's neighbour, Islay, Jura is a beautiful island full of deer and is where George Orwell finished writing Nineteen Eighty-Four.
A Hunter Laing, Old Malt Cask bottling of 1996 vintage whisky from Deanston in the southern Highlands. Distilled in April and bottled almost exactly 18 years in April 2014, this whisky is packed with much darker flavours than its light colour suggests, thanks to its maturation in a refill sherry butt.
The hugely popular Springbank 18 year old. The first edition of this was extremely popular, with more than a hint of sherry among the Springbank brine and smoke, and this version has already been named as Best Campbeltown Malt at the World Whiskies Awards 2014.
A 1995 vintage Craigellachie from independent bottler Hunter Laing as part of their Old Malt Cask series. Distilled in November, it was aged in sherry butt 10589 for 18 years before 730 bottles were yielded in June 2014.
A 1990 vintage Laphroaig bottled by indie bottler Montgomerie's in July 2009 at 18 years of age. This was distilled in the early days of legendary former manager Iain Henderson's reign at the distillery.
One of our all-time favourite malts, Talisker 18 years old is a masterpiece from one of Scotland's greatest distilleries, and was named 'Best Single Malt Whisky in the World' at the World Whiskies Awards in 2007. Stunning balance of peat, spice and sweetness.
The superlative Jameson 18yo has long been considered one of the brightest stars of the range. This blend of two potstill whiskies and a single grain is matured in Oloroso sherry casks and finished in bourbon wood for 6 months for a brilliantly complex potstill character.
Aberlour is already one of our favourite distilleries thanks to the excellent a'bunadh. Introduced in 2008, this 18 year old is now one of the stars of the range: rich and fruity, with a great textured mouthfeel. A previous winner of a Gold Medal & Best in Class at the International Wine & Spirit Competition.
