The eleventh Port Ellen in Diageo's Special Releases series was distilled in 1979 and bottled at 32 years old. We reckon it's the best official PE in many years - sadly our allocation was completely pre-booked before the stock arrived.
The most sought after of the yearly Diageo Special Releases - the official bottling of whisky from long closed Port Ellen. This 12th release is a vatting of refill American and European oak matured whisky that was distilled in 1979. At 32 years old this was, at release, the joint oldest official bottling of Port Ellen.
A 1962 vintage distillery bottling of Springbank. This carries the white labels that was used for limited edition bottlings throughout the 1990s and was distilled a couple of years after the distillery stopped using its on-site maltings for a period of over 30 years.
A very, very rare Ardbeg from Gordon & Macphail's Connoisseurs Choice series. This was bottled over 15 years ago in 1995 and distilled nearly five decades ago back in 1964 when the distillery was still very old-fashioned, using direct fired stills and its own floor maltings. A slice of history.
A very rare single cask distillery bottling of whisky from Balvenie. Filled into the cask on 9th April 1966 it was hand bottled at the distillery on 2nd June 1998, one of only 234 bottles filled from the cask.
A rare bottle of 1968 vintage Balvenie, bottled in 2000. Only 180 bottles ever existed of this, another delicious Balvenie with notes of nuts and citrus. This received 92 points over on whiskyfun.com from Serge Valentin.
A 1970 vintage Brora bottled by Douglas Laing as part of their Platinum Selection series. Closed in 1983, Brora bottlings are much in demand, especially great ones like this. This was awarded an average of 92 points by 7 of the Malt Maniacs.
A 1969 Macallan from single cask #10412, released at a hugely impressive 59% after 32 years of cask ageing. This vintage Macallan is part of the Fine & Rare series, the distillery's ne plus ultra range.
