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 1982 vintage Brora released by Douglas Laing as part of their Old Malt Cask series. This was aged for 21 years in a sherry cask before being bottled in November 2003. The distillery closed in 1983 and bottlings are ever increasingly sought after.
A 1979 vintage Port Ellen, bottled by independent bottlers Douglas Laing in July 2000 as part of their Old Malt Cask series. The distillery was one of many victims of the cull of 1983 and has gained a cult following, with bottlings being extremely sought after.
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.
The 2001 bottling for The Ardbeg Committee, Ardbeg's fan club. This one is part of a limited release matured for at least 21 years at the distillery, the youngest spirit being distilled just before its early 80s closure.
A very special edition of Springbank 21yo bottled only for directors & staff, this was the first bottling done to commemorate the new millennium, meaning the whisky in the bottle would have been distilled in the 1970s.
