A 1982 vintage single cask release of whisky from Inchgower by the folks at Douglas Laing as part of their Old Malt Cask range. Distiled in June of that year, matured in a refill hogshead and bottled 28 years later in June of 2010.
A 1982 vintage whisky from closed distillery Linlithgow (aka St Magdalene) bottled in mid-2011 by Signatory as part of the Cask Strength Collection. This was matured in a wine treated butt and has a rather pokey bottling strength of 63.1%.
A single cask bottling of the obscure (and long-defunct) Glen Mhor, whose original site is now famously occupied by a supermarket after the distillery was demolished in the mid-1980s. Another of Signatory's enigmatic 'Wine Treated' barrels.
A top-quality cask-strength Glen Ord, with typical grassy, heathery and barley-sugar notes alongside summer fruits and well-integrated vanilla oak notes. Jim Murray gave this 90 points in the Whisky Bible, calling it 'Blisteringly beautiful'.
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 particular dram is all the more precious for having come from a distillery dismantled in 1986.
A special release single cask bottling of Tomatin from 1982, aged for 28 years and bottled in 2011. With 560 57% bottles available we assume it was matured in a sherry butt and it's picked up a nice colour over the years.
One of only a tiny handful of official bottlings from the distillery also known as North Port (the others being part of the Rare Malt series). Brechin was demolished more than a decade ago, so this is a real collector's item.
This annual release for Port Ellen from Diageo is another 1979. We sold our allocation of the sixth release in a matter of weeks, so please be quick if you want one of these. As with the Brora, we don't know how many more of these releases there will be.. MAXIMUM 1 BOTTLE PER PERSON!
A special release of Longmorn 1969 whisky, specially selected by Signatory for their 10th Anniversary in 1998. This whisky has been matured in Oak cask for 28 years and was bottle at cask strength specifically for the occasion. The bottle comes in a wonderful presentation box, complete with two Signatory-branded tumblers.
A very special 1964 vintage Macallan bottled from sherrywood by independent bottlers Signatory in the early 1990s. 1960s Macallans are highly sought after, and cask strength independent bottlings are difficult to come by. This should be superb.
