A rare bottling of whisky from Ben Wyvis from Signatory's extensive collection of weird and wonderful whisky. The distillery opened in 1965 and closed 12 years later, making this one of the rarest obtainable whiskies out there.
A single cask release of Ardbeg 1974 for the UK market, this time a mere 141 bottles from a bourbon cask. We are told there are very few old casks left at Ardbeg for this kind of bottling, so this may be one of the last released on these shores.
Bottled over a decade ago, this is a very special Signatory edition of Ben Wyvis, the single malt made at Whyte & Mackay's Invergordon distillery for a brief period between 1965 and 1976. Almost all Ben Wyvis went straight for blending so this is rare indeed. Just 84 sets were released, each with a miniature of the spirit included in the box.
A single cask release of Ardbeg 1974 for the UK market, this time a mere 93 bottles from a bourbon cask. We are told there are very few old casks left at Ardbeg for this kind of bottling, so this may be one of the last released on these shores.
A cask-strength release of Ardbeg 1975 bottled in 2006 from a single sherry cask for sale at the distillery. There are now almost no sherry casks from the 1970s left at Ardbeg for this kind of bottling.
A rare 1972 vintage Ardbeg produced for Juuls Vinhandel in Denmark. This release is referred to as 'Ping No.1' on the back and was produced for the 30th Business Anniversary of Michael Madsen (one of their workers). A real collector's item.
A truly legendary Laphroaig from the 1974 vintage, this heavily-sherried 31 year old was a limited edition of around 900 bottles produced for a French retailer and scored a whopping 95 points from Serge Valentin on Whiskyfun before capping that with a Gold Medal and the Non Plus Ultra award for the highest scoring whisky out of all the entries at the Malt Maniacs Awards 2005. An acknowledged masterpiece.
