A single sherry cask release of Ardbeg 1976 bottled for the Italian market in 2002. Cask 2396 is one of a series of legendary sister sherry casks bottled by Ardbeg in the late 1990s and early 2000s that really cemented the distillery's cult status amongst aficionados.
A bottle of historic 1973 vintage Longrow. This is the first year that Springbank distillery distilled Longrow, the heavily peated malt. We estimate this was bottled in the 1980s and is a real piece of history.
Another of the hugely popular Macallan Gran Reserva series, released around the turn of the century. These releases were made in small batches from casks that were too good to be vatted into the standard 18yo release and are highly prized by collectors today.
One of the most collectable ever Macallans, bottled in 1996 for the 35th anniversary of the famous satirical magazine Private Eye (still essential reading). The vatting produced 5000 bottles and included one cask from 1961. This special edition is also unique in that it features a superb screenprinted label by the legendary gonzo illustrator Ralph Steadman.
This 'Green Springbank' is legendary in collectors circles, not only for its curious colour, presumably the result of a full-term maturation in a rum cask, but also for its incredible flavours. Serge Valentin rated this bottling at 93 points on whiskyfun.
This is an official bottling of Springbank from the 1965 vintage. Released as part of the much sought after and acclaimed 'Local Barley' series. The label carries a beautiful illustration of a farm and surrounding fields.
A 1965 vintage Springbank. This carries the relatively common black label with white lower band which was used at the time. We estimate this was bottled in the 1980s, a decade when the distillery was closed for production.
