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.

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.
This is the second edition of Springbank's 18yo, with a change of presentation to bring it into line with the rest of the range. The first edition of this was extremely popular, with more than a hint of sherry amongst the Springbank brine and smoke, and this version has already been named as Best Campbeltown Malt aged 13-20 at the World Whisky Awards 2010..

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 each batch sells out really quickly. We've only got a few, so this remains STRICTLY ONE BOTTLE PER CUSTOMER.
A bottling of 1991 vintage Springbank from independent bottlers Murray McDavid. This was from a limited single cask batch of 300 bottles released for Taiwanese importers Channg Ruey at the end of 2004.
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.
One of a series of 6 special bottlings to mark the 15th anniversary of the Old Malt Cask brand. Presented in a wooden box with the original style label, this 22 year old Glen Scotia was distilled in May 1991 and bottled in November 2013 from ex-bourbon cask 13609. The distillery's official range only goes up to 21 years of age, so this is a rare opportunity to try something older.
