Please welcome the 2011 entry into the ranks of superb Talisker 25 year olds. Where previous version of Tally 25yo have been released at fullstrength, 2011's edition is the first to be bottled from refill casks at Talisker's traditional strength of 45.8% (80 proof) with a slightly larger outturn than usual to let more people join in on the fun.
Scapa 1980 is a belter of a malt from a distillery frequently overlooked in favour of its more famous Orcadian neighbour, Highland Park. Well-presented and bottled at natural cask strength for added oomph.
The third edition in Bruichladdich's DNA series, examining the component parts that make the distillery's whiskies tick. This one marries together some of their best casks of the 1980s - their final batch of sherry butts. Bottled at cask strength and limited to only 1665 bottles, this is one for all fans and collectors of Bruichladdich.
Rounded and luxurious, Glenmorangie 25 yo has some lovely floral and citrus flavours alongside the spices and toasty sweetness one would expect from a quarter century in the wood. A brilliantly-made dram that lives up to the luxury image LVMH are pushing for the brand.
A blast of real quality from a fantastic distillery, bottled at a take-no-prisoners strength. A mix of American and European Oak refill casks, with concentrated peat and the characteristic Caol Ila oiliness, this is a real treat for the Islayphile in your life.
A 25 year old edition of Cameron Brig, bottled in 1999 to commemorate the 175th anniversary of John Haig receiving his first licence to distill. Cameron Brid is the single grain whisky produced at Cameronbridge distillery.
The cask strength bottling of Laphroaig 25yo is a very different beast to the old 25yo (and in our opinion, upping the strength is a big improvement). Rich and smouldering, with a big coal hit and a lingering seaweed character. We said at the time that this was tremendous stuff, and now it's only gone and won the IWSC Trophy for Best Cask Strength Single Malt.
A single malt whisky matured at a mystery distillery and specially selected by Gordon & Macphail. This is a marriage of two casks which were distilled in 1967 and aged for atleast 25 years. This whisky was matured in port casks and bottled at a tame 40% in March 1993.
A 1975 vintage whisky from Linlithgow distillery, also known as St. Magdalene distillery. This whisky has been matured in a single oak cask for 25 years, and has been bottled at cask strength. Bottled by Signatory in September 2000.
