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 »
An old bottling of 1979 vintage Port Ellen from independent bottler Douglas Laing as part of the Old Malt Cask series. Distilled in February, this was aged in a single cask for 21 years before 330 bottles were yielded in August 2000. The distillery sadly closed in 1983 and bottles are heavily sought-after.
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 1970 vintage Hillside bottled as part of Diageo's Rare Malts series. Dormant from 1899 to 1938, Glenesk reopened as a grain distillery. Converted to a malt distillery, it was renamed Hillside in 1964, then renamed back to Glenesk around 1980 before being closed for good in 1985. Bottlings from this distillery are highly sought after.
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.
A 1967 vintage whisky from defunct distillery Littlemill, Dunglass being their rare experimental peated spirit that was never planned to be released as single malt. This was bottled by Italian independent Moon Import as part of their 'The Animals' series.
An old bottling of 1965 vintage Glenlochy from independent bottler Jack Wiebers Whisky World. Distilled in May, it was aged for 39 years before just 194 bottles were yielded in October 2004. The distillery sadly closed in 1983, with most of the buildings demolished nine years later.
