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 1979 Port Ellen from Douglas Laing. This is an exclusive bottling for Potstill, a whisky shop in Vienna, and was put out under the Fine & Rare Platinum Selection label. 25 years old and with a solid cask strength of 57.1%.
A 2 litre, 1980s bottling of 5 year old whisky from the incredibly rare Glen Flagler. It was not actually a distillery, but the name of the whisky produced from stills at the Moffat Grain Distillery in Airdrie. Only produced for 21 years between 1964 and 1985, Glen Flagler bottlings are highly collectable.
St Magdalene's 1979 entry in the Rare Malts series. The distillery closed in 1983, as part of the mass-closures across the industry at the time, and this is one of the few official bottlings that made it out of the distillery. It's an excellent malt, picking up a stack of 90+ scores from the Malt Maniacs.
Please note that this bottle has a low level.
A special release of Longmorn 1969 whisky, specially selected by Signatory for their 10th Anniversary in 1998. This whisky has been matured in Oak cask for 28 years and was bottle at cask strength specifically for the occasion. The bottle comes in a wonderful presentation box, complete with two Signatory-branded tumblers.
A bottle of the extremely rare Glen Flagler single malt. Produced from stills housed within the Moffat grain complex between 1964 and 1985, this bottle was bottled at 8 years of maturation. Glen Flagler bottlings are very hard to find and are extremely collectable. We estimate this was bottled in the 1970s.
A 1974 vintage Ardbeg from Gordon & Macphail, bottled in the 1980s under their Connoisseurs Choice label in its old brown livery - we think that this might be the first Connoisseurs Choice bottling of Ardbeg from this famous vintage.
A single cask distillery bottling from Auchentoshan. An very old example for their spirit, which is generally bottled much younger, released at 31 years old having aged in a hogshead since 28th March 1966.
An old Connoisseurs Choice bottling of whisky from Lochside, released back in the 1980s when Gordon & Macphail still used the, even for the day, retro looking brown livery. This was distilled in 1966 and aged for 21 years, and should be packed full of Lochside's trademark fruitiness.
A very rare 1979 vintage release of Port Ellen whisky. This special bottling by Douglas Laing has been matured for 24 years and was approved by Alambic Classique, Germany. Bottled at cask strength in March 2004.
A 1982 vintage Port Ellen released in 2013 by independent bottlers Douglas Laing as part of their Old Particular series. The distillery closed in 1983 and has a cult following, making bottlings extremely sought after.
