Malt whisky is the ‘original’ whisky of Scotland. Malt whisky is made only from malted barley, in two (occasionally three) copper pot stills, by a batch process. ‘Single’ malt whisky is the product of an individual distillery. Read More »
A really incredible Glenfarclas - a forty-year old expression of cask-strength cult favourite 105, bottled late in 2008 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the appearance of the 105 expression. It's astonishing that they managed to maintain the 60% abv over forty years in sherry casks - this will be an epic dram.
A very special bottle of Aberlour 30 year old. This whisky was distilled in 1966 and has been aged for 30 years. This whisky has been matured in a mix of two Sherry butts and one bourbon hogshead. It was originally 52.1%, but has been reduced down to 43% for bottling. Limited to just 1000 bottles.
A 1968 vintage Springbank. This is labelled as a 10 year old, but was actually bottled at most a few weeks short of its 12th birthday. This was distilled during a 30 year hiatus of the distillery using malt imported from elsewhere.
A long-aged cask strength Springbank 1969 bottled from a single refill sherry butt by Signatory as part of the Cask Strength Collection. Lovely natural colour on this, not too dark, so there should be plenty of distillery character remaining.
A very old bottle of Glen Grant bottled at 14 years of age by posh London wine merchants Berry Brothers & Rudd. We estimate this was bottled in the 1950s for the American market and imported by the Buckingham Corporation, who were instrumental in Berrys' brand Cutty Sark's success in the US.
A relatively young entry in Glenlivet's much vaunted Cellar Collection, distilled in 1980 and bottled 'only' about 31 years later. Initial reports have been excellent for this whisky, with praise splurging across the internet, and we're rather pleased to have grabbed a few bottles.
Originally released around 2000, this great dram is becoming rarer and rarer. Laphroaig 30yo has garnered many plaudits, including a Double Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2005.
An independent release of single cask Bowmore, distilled in August 1980 and bottled in July 2004 at cask strength. What's more, it comes with a rather nifty replica copper still decanter, embossed with a name plate featuring the bottle number.
A 1969 vintage Springbank, released by independent bottlers Signatory after 30 years of maturation in cask number 1689. The decade was a real success for the distillery, who produced many stonking whiskies.
