Campbeltown, during the mid-1800s, was the epicentre of Scotland's distilling industry, with 28 distilleries at one stage in the 1830s. Today, however, this number has dwindled to just three: Springbank, which also produces the peated Longrow and the unpeated Hazelburn; Glen Scotia; and recent addition Glengyle, home of Kilkerran malt.

A wine cask finished malt from Longrow, part of their regular series of full proof bottlings exploring interesting wood. This one was matured for 11 years in refill bourbon casks before recasking in fresh Burgundy casks for a 3 year finish.
After the runaway success of 2007's first bottling, hopes were high for version 2.0 - so we were delighted to find another stunner. This is less sweet and more sooty and savoury than the first batch. A triumph, again.
Something of a curio, this one - a cask strength single malt from Springbank distillery, with more than a hint of smoke about it, suggesting it might actually be one of the distillery's other single malts. Strong and youthful, this is an assertive dram with notes of flax, wet peat, hay and pear eau de vie.
Introduced as the pinnacle of the distillery's 2013 upgrade, Glen Scotia 21 year old is not only bottled at 46% but is also, as far as we can see, the oldest ever official bottling from the distillery. This will surely be greeted with great gusto by Campbeltown fans everywhere.
Wemyss Malts are all named after the flavours that have been found within each bottle. Their 1991 vintage Glen Scotia has been named "Strawberry Ganache" so expect sweet fruity and chocolatey notes throughout.
The return of one of a Campbeltown classic: it's the Longrow 18! A legend in its own lunchtime and totally sold out in previous editions, it's back again but we don't know for how long. We've only got a few, so this remains STRICTLY ONE BOTTLE PER CUSTOMER.
A small batch of three refill Hoggies from Glen Scotia, Campbeltown's other distillery, for this new release in G & M's consistently great 'Cask' series. The colour is great and the strength is nudging 60%, so this should be pretty intense.
A rather intersting single cask bottling of Springbank bank whisky. This was independent bottled for a Case in Cask Syndicate in August 2010. Having been matured in an Ex-Bourbon hogshead for 21 years and bottled at cask strength, this could be a fantastic whisky.
