A 1993 vintage Glendronach from the 10th batch of their single cask bottlings. Distilled on February 19, it was matured for 21 years before 635 bottles were yielded from ex-Oloroso sherry butt 494 in June 2014.
Please note this is limited to one bottle per customer.
The return of the name Gran Reserva to Glenfiddich's 21yo after a few years under different titles is also accompanied by an upgrade to its packaging. It is still finished in rum casks for 4 months, but it now has a more elegant presentation, as befits its position towards the top of the distillery's regular range.
A cask-strength 21yo from Tomatin, a distillery which has really benefited from a bit of brand investment recently, with a packaging facelift and a flurry of highly-regarded new releases. Expect smooth, spicy wood influence and more than a hint of sherry in the mix.
An additional period of maturation in 30 year-old Port pipes has given this aged Balvenie an extra level of depth and concentration of flavour, adding potent fruit and smoke notes to the silky-smooth full-bodied palate. Rich, indulgent, after-dinner Speyside at it's best.
A 1991 vintage Highland Pak from independent bottlers Douglas Laing, released as part of their Directors' Cut series. Distilled in February, this was aged for 21 years in refill butt number 9242 before 227 bottles were yielded in December 2012.
One of the most exciting of 2010's Special Releases, this 1989 Glen Spey is the first mainstream bottling of note from this distillery, and is comfortably the oldest OB Glen Spey ever released. A vatting of new American oak casks 'that had also held sherry'.
A 2012 re-release of Highland Park 21 back at its old strength of 47.5% after a few years of languishing at a lower strength due to stock shortages. This has been much sought after in the travel retail sector and it's good to see it back on our shelves again. Absolutely terrific stuff.
Teeling's much anticipated 21 year old vintage reserve. Distilled in 1991, this was matured in ex-bourbon casks and then married in Sauternes casks to finish. This first batch is believed to be the first ever Sauternes finished Irish Whiskey. The next releases will be at 25 and 30 years old and we're brimming with anticipation.
A special edition 21yo Isle of Jura bottled for the distillery's 200th anniversary in 2010, finished in a Gonzalez Byass Oloroso Sherry cask from 1963, the year the distillery was rebuilt. Contains a personal message from distillery manager Willie Cochrane, inviting recipients to visit the distillery for a personal tour and a dramming session.
The oldest expression from Redbreast so far, this is a combination of malted and unmalted barley matured in a mixture of Bourbon barrels and first fill Oloroso casks resulting in a rich and complex whiskey.
Considered by many to be the hidden gem (and bargain) of Diageo's 2013 Special Releases is this 21 year old vintage Cardhu. A distillery that's not that well known on these shores (although is huge in spain), this is a delicate yet complex whisky, with balanced sweet fruit and dark woodiness.
Littlemill is a lost Lowland distillery that was closed in 1994, dismantled in 1996 and eventually fully demolished in 2006 after a fire had destroyed many of the remaining buildings. However, stock from the distillery still exists, and the second release of the 21 year old is an official bottling as the Littlemill name and license are still owned by Loch Lomond distillery.
A relatively young entry in the Douglas Laing Platinum range, with only 21 years on the clock for this whisky from Glenrothes. However, it has come from a sherry hogshead with an outturn of only 94 bottles - a rare dram which probably has a story behind it...
