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 1966 vintage Glenkinchie from independent bottlers Cadenhead's, bottled in February 1988 at 21 years of age. 1966 was a difficult year for Scottish football fans, but hopefully a better one for whisky nuts.
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
An old bottling of 1982 vintage Port Ellen from independent bottler Douglas Laing as part of the Platinum Selection. Distilled in the year before the distillery closed for good, this was aged in a single cask for 21 years before being bottled for potstill and the Whisky Club of Austria in 2004.
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 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.
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.
A Port Ellen from the early days of the Old Malt Cask series, this is one of a string of single cask PE's that really put Douglas Laing on the map as an independent bottler. The company had vast stocks of Port Ellen after buying it in bulk for their blends, and were able to capitalise on the success of the Rare Malts bottlings which had made the distillery hugely sought-after.
