A fantastic 30 year old whisky from Jura, previewed back at The Whisky Show in 2012 and long awaited since. The name 'Camas an Staca' translates to be simply 'Standing Stone' and refers to one of the 8 ancient stones dotted about the island. The whisky has been matured in American oak for most of it's life, finishing in Gonzalez Byass Oloroso butts for 3 years before bottling.
The highlight of 2006's super premium releases from Diageo. This was so popular that we sold through our initial allocation within weeks. This starts off as an elegent dram that builds on the palate to a powerful peaty, smoky, salty, peppery beast, it has complex coastal characters with notes of citrus and the most perfectly balanced finish.
A 1972 vintage (Royal) Lochnagar from independent bottlers Douglas Laing as part of their Platinum Selection series. A scene of bad luck in the early days, the distillery was built in 1823, burnt down by competitors in 1826, rebuilt nearby and then burnt down again in 1841.
A fabulous cask strength expression of Linlithgow aka St Magdalene, this was part of the Diageo super premium 'Special Releases' from 2004. Beautiful grassy, fruity Lowland malt whisky with real depth.
A 30 year old Port Ellen from Ian Macleod's Chieftain's range. Distilled in 1982, bottled in 2012 and released shortly after Diageo unveiled their own Port Ellen Special Release for the year. A few lucky people got to try this at The Whisky Show 2012 leading to some excellent reports.
A 30 year old Port Ellen from Douglas Laing bottled as part of their Platinum Selection series. Port Ellen closed a year after this whisky was distilled (1983) and has a cult following, making bottlings extremely sought after. Notes of toffee, spice and peat on this one.
The 6th bottling of Brora 30yrs from Diageo is another classic 1970s-style Brora, and standards are just as high as ever, with overt citrus and medicine cabinet notes. This is yet another fabulous release from this much-lamented extinct distillery, scoring 93 points from Whiskyfun's Serge Valentin.
An impressive bottling from Douglas Laing, showing that they still have some interesting and surprising casks hiding in their cellars - a 30 year old, 1983 vintage Port Ellen. Distilled in February, matured in a single refill hogshead and yielding only 102 bottles, this is sure to disappear quickly.
Please note this is limited to one bottle per customer.
