A single cask 1993 vintage whisky from the closed Willowbank distillery on the South Island of New Zealand. This has been matured for 18 years before bottling in late 2012. Whisky Bible Awards 2014: 92.5 Points
Highland Park 18yo is one of the all-time greats of the single malt world. Delicious sweet sherry notes alongside the heather-honey distillery character, rounded with a wisp of dry smoke. Whisky Bible 2011: Single Malt Scotch of the Year 16-21 Years; 95.5 Points
A malt whisky of unmistakable honey-rich maturity and depth. Glenlivet 18yo is the winner of 2 gold medals in the International Wine and Spirit Competition (I.W.S.C.) and remains one of the best-value expressions of sherried Speyside.
A follow-up to the enormously successful Kilbeggan 15yo, which won just about every award going, this small batch long-aged blend has been assembled by Cooley from the very best of their old maturing stock. World Whiskies Awards 2012 - Best Irish Blended Whiskey
The second edition of Bruichladdich's 18 year old. This time the whisky has been aged mainly in ex-bourbon casks and then finished in French oak barrels which used to contain sweet Jurancon, a dessert wine from the south west of France.
This heavily-sherried Mannochmore 1990 was one of Tim F's favourite drams from 2009's Special Releases. A belter from a previously undistinguished distillery - we'd like to see much more of this sort of thing.
A wonderful example of what Japanese whisky is capable of. We absolutely love this. Extremely smooth, with great complexity and a lovely balance of fruit, silky malt and a touch of smoke. San Francisco WSC - Best in Show - Double Gold Medal Winner
A massive step up in quality from the standard Hakushu 12 yrs, this 18yo is amazingly well-defined (as we've come to expect from Japanese whisky) with deliciously rounded fruit and cereal flavours, at times surprisingly reminiscent of the finest Irish potstill whisky (eg Redbreast 15yo).
Hot on the heels of the 1992 vintage, which only turned up in May 2011, here's the 1993 Macallan 18 year old. This benchmark Macallan has been fully matured in ex-sherry casks and remains one of the most highly-regarded after-dinner drams thanks to its slick, sweet smoothness. MAXIMUM 1 BOTTLE PER CUSTOMER.
A gift pack containing Glenmorangie's 18 year old and the 18 Greatest Scottish Golf Holes book by Gene Brooks, Craig Morrison and Andrew Ross of the 18 Greatest Golf company.

A gift pack containing a bottle of Glenmorangie's 18 year old, two ball markers, a golden golf ball and two glasses. The whisky itself is matured for 15 years in American white oak casks, after which around 30% is transferred to Spanish Oloroso casks for the final three years.
A TWE exclusive bottling, this very special Glenlivet was released in late 2012 as part of the distillery's Single Cask Editions, which are named alphabetically. Minmore is the name of the site of the Glenlivet distillery and is manifested here by an 18 year old bourbon cask, bottled at its impressive strength of 57.9%.
A bottle of Yamazaki's stunning 18 year old presented in a beautiful bag designed by London-based leather designer Bill Amberg, a man who also happens to be passionate about Japanese culture and whisky. Just 200 bags were produced for the UK, the limited edition packaging reproducing the effect of the charring of sherry casks prior to maturation and commemorating the 90th anniversary of the distillery.
A 1983 vintage Mortlach from Edinburgh-based independent bottlers The Bottlers. We presume this is aged in a sherry cask, described on the label as a 'refill bodega American oak butt', unusual in itself as most sherry butts are made from European oak.
