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 incredibly rare whisky: Dunglass was an experimental peated malt made at the now-extinct Littlemill for a very short period in the 1960s. Only a tiny handful of Dunglass bottlings have ever seen the light of day, including this Signatory version for the Italian market.
A simply stunning refill sherried Glenfarclas at a phenomenal age. What is amazing about this whisky is that the oak is not too intrusive and while there is obviously a big fruitcake sherry character, it isn't overwhelming and the balance is still there. Probably one of the greatest malts ever released from this truly great distillery.
A 1968 vintage Kinclaith, bottled by Gordon & Macphail. The distillery was only operational for 18 years and no official bottlings were ever released, with almost all the production going towards the Long John blend. Bottlings from the distillery are therefore very rare and in high demand.
A 25 year old bottling of Rosebank from independent bottlers Signatory. Distilled in 1967 and bottled in 1993 at cask strength. Rosebank bottlings are becoming increasingly hard to find, due to the fact the distillery closed in 1993.
A 1967 vintage whisky from Springbank distillery, specially selected by Cadenhead's for their Chairmans Stock series and bottled at its natural cask strength of 46.8% after 32 years in a sherry hogshead - this should be absolutely fantastic.
A 1967 vintage Springbank from independent bottlers Hart Brothers. This was given an impressive 91 points by Olivier Humbrecht of the Malt Maniacs, a man with an impeccable palate given he is one of less than 300 Masters of wine worldwide.
A delightful pear shaped bottle of 33 year old Springbank. We estimate this was bottled in the 1980s, an interesting decade which saw the distillery closed until 1987 and peated Longrow released for the first time as an experiment.
An old bottling of Glen Scotia. Once home to a total of 28 distilleries, Glen Scotia is one of just three that survive in 2013. We estimate this was bottled in the 1960s and is presented in the classic flat bottle from that era.
An old bottling of Laphroaig 10 year old, the most richly flavoured Scotch whisky brand. Made the same way as it was when invented before the second world war by then owner Ian Hunter. We estimate this was bottled in the 1970s, a period considered by many Laphraoig fans to be the best decade for bottlings.
A very old early 1980s Connoisseur's Choice bottling of Glenugie 1966, this was bottled at 15 years old. As Jim Murray once said, "...this distillery never seems to let you down. The rule of thumb is: find a bottle of Glunugie and you'll find liquid gold." (Whisky Bible 2008)
