A 1973 vintage Dailuaine, bottled in the mid-1990s at 22 years old as part of the Rare Malts collection. Despite its two decades in wood it has maintained a lot of its strength, coming in at an eye watering 60.92% ABV.
The Rare Malts are a now-discontinued series of cask-strength releases designed by Diageo to showcase some of the hidden treasures in their portfolio. This Rosebank is even rarer by virtue of being both a Lowland malt and from a distillery that ceased production in 1993.
An incredibly rare whisky: Dunglass was an experimental peated malt made at the now-extinct Littlemill for a very short period in the 1960s. Only a tiny handful of Dunglass bottlings have ever seen the light of day, including this Signatory version for the Italian market.
The second sensational OB Port Ellen 1978, bottled around the turn of the millennium as part of the Rare Malts series. This phenomenal dram was rated at 93 points by Serge Valentin of Whiskyfun, and its popularity and acclaim led to the revivial of interest in this classic closed distillery and thus to the birth of the annual Special Releases series.
Another supremely contemplative malt that demands time and concentration. This bottling is from bourbon casks that were re-racked into Oloroso sherry casks for the final stages of maturation. One of the most difficult-to-find Glenmorangies.
The first ever version of the now hugely popular Port Ellen Annual Releases. Distilled in 1979 and bottled at cask strength after 22 years of maturation. Port Ellen distillery closed in 1983 and is considered to be one of the most prestigous distilleries in history.
An incredible old bottling of Macallan from the 1930s. Aged for 22 years, bottled in Scotland and then imported into the US after the end of prohibition in 1933. Beautifully preserved and a great piece for a collector.
