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 Port Ellen from the early days of the Old Malt Cask series, this is one of a string of single cask PE's that really put Douglas Laing on the map as an independent bottler. The company had vast stocks of Port Ellen after buying it in bulk for their blends, and were able to capitalise on the success of the Rare Malts bottlings which had made the distillery hugely sought-after.
A 22 year old Port Ellen whisky from a single cask which was filled in 1976. Distilled on 28th September, this whisky was bottled at cask strength by Signatory on 2nd October 1998. The distillery was one of many victims of the 1983 cull and bottlings today are amongst the most collectable in the world.
A 13 year old Coleburn, which has been aged for 13 years prior to being bottled for independent bottlers Cadenhead's. Coleburn bottlings are rarely seen nowadays - the distillery was sadly closed by Diageo in 1985.
A 1982 vintage Port Ellen from independent bottlers Wilson & Morgan. This was aged in sherry butt 2031 for 30 years old prior to bottling. Distilled the year before the distillery sadly closed for good.
A 1957 bottle of Glenlossie from independent bottlers Cadenhead's, bottled at 21 years of age. This was awarded an impressive 92 points by Malt Maniac Serge Valentin, who commented it had notes of ginger, liquorice and tangerine.
A 1955 vintage Glen Grant bottled by Gordon & Macphail, owners of one of the most extensive collections of old casks, from Glen Grant and elsewhere, in Scotland. This has matured for over 50 years, an impressive feat that very few distiller's spirits can stand up to - Glen Grant can.
A very special old Ardbeg 10yo, unusually bottled in clear glass in the 1980s by former owners Hiram Walker. A whopping 95 points from Whiskyfun's Serge Valentin only enhanced this release's legendary status.
Please note this is limited to two bottles per customer.
A 16 year old Aultmore bottled to celebrate the distillery's 100th anniversary. It's a rare limited edition release and comes in at an eye-watering 63% abv. From the colour, it's probably safe to assume this was from a sherry cask.
The Bruichladdich Legacy series is a series of 6 bottles which were released annually from 2002 until 2007. All these whiskies are from incredibly old casks, and in some cases a marriage of several casks. This first release is a stunning 1966 vintage whisky bottled in 2002, also celebrating the Queen's golden jubilee.
