A bona fide classic, this was from the last batch of Springbank 21yo before it reappeared in 2012 after a hiatus of seven years due to a shortage of aged casks at the distillery. One of the all-time greats.
A 1980 vintage Port Ellen from independent bottlers Silver Seal, bottled at 21 years of age in 2002. The distillery was sadly closed in 1983 and has gained a cult following since, with bottles being in high demand.
A 1982 vintage Port Ellen from independent bottlers Silver Seal, bottled at 21 years of age in 2003, one of just 375 bottles. The distillery was sadly closed in 1983 and has gained a cult following since, with bottles being in high demand.
A 1967 vintage Glen Keith from independent bottlers Signatory. This was aged for 21 years before being bottled in 1989. During the time this was maturing, the distillery installed the first gas-fuelled still in Scotland.
A 21 year old Port Eellen is pretty young by today's standards, and this early Douglas Laing Old Malt Cask bottling is from a 1979 sherry cask, which is pretty rare by today's standards. Should be phenomenal.
A 1979 vintage Port Ellen from independent bottlers Douglas Laing as part of their Old Malt Cask series. This was bottled at 21 years of age at the end of 2000. The distillery closed in 1983 and bottlings have become increasingly sought after.
Another Lagavulin in the 2012 Special Releases line-up, joining the ever present 12 year old. This is a much more limited edition 21 year old bottling, matured in first fill ex-sherry European oak casks filled in 1991. This has had quite a bit of buzz about it and we expect it to live up to the pedigree.
Malt Advocate 19th Annual Awards: Islay Single Malt of the Year
A 1957 bottle of Glenlossie from independent bottlers Cadenhead's,bottled at 21 years of age. This was awarded an impressive 92 points by Malt Maniac Serge Valentin, who commented it had notes of ginger, liquorice and tangerine.
An old Connoisseurs Choice bottling of whisky from Lochside, released back in the 1980s when Gordon & Macphail still used the, even for the day, retro looking brown livery. This was distilled in 1966 and aged for 21 years, and should be packed full of Lochside's trademark fruitiness.
