A sister cask to Douglas Laing's other late 2012 Port Ellen, this has been aged for 35 years in a refill hogshead, before being released as part of the Old & Rare Platinum Selection. The spirit was distilled in August 1977 and bottled in November 2012.
A very rare bottling of legendarily hard-to-find whisky from Kinclaith, a malt distillery incorporated into the Strathclyde complex which ran for just 18 years between 1957 and 1975, with almost all output going into the Long John blend. This 1969 cask was bottled by Signatory in 2005.
A very rare whisky from a long closed Kinclaith. Built inside the Strathclyde grain distillery complex and shut down in 1975 after less than 20 years of production and with no official releases. These 1969 bottlings may be the last whiskies that will be seen from the distillery.
A 35 year old Bowmore, distilled in 1968 and bottled as part of the Celtic Heartlands range. With Jim McEwan behind the selection you're fairly safe that each bottle in the series is going to be quite special.
A bottling of a single cask, part of the same batch of Oloroso casks that produced Black Bowmore. This particular cask yielded just 99 bottles, of which only 95 went on sale. This was originally earmarked by Bowmore as the very best of these famous casks and tasting it, you can see why - all the flavours are super-concentrated.
A 1966 vintage Macallan, released a decade or so ago as part of the distillery's Fine & Rare series. This amazingly ambitious range was designed to showcase Macallan throughout its history, with initial vintages going back to 1926 - all bottled at full cask strength.
