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 »
One of the legendary Bowmore bicentenary releases, bottled in 1979 as part of their 200th birthday celebrations. Distilled in the 1960s and matured in some rather excellent sherry casks this is still considered to be one of the best Bowmores ever produced.
A very rare single cask distillery bottling from Balvenie. Filled into cask #8923 on 29th June 1971 and then left alone for 33 years until bottling on 27th May 2005, a mere month away from it's 34th birthday. With only 225 cask strength bottles left in the cask there's very little of this left undrunk.
A recent release of the now-legendary Glenlivet 1964 Cellar Collection bottled in 2004 (one of Sukhinder's all-time favourite Glenlivets). This is now in Glenlivet's smart new packaging with the clear glass and the sliding wooden box.
A legendary Ardbeg, the 1974 Provenance appeared in 1997 shortly after Glenmorangie's takeover of the distillery. This version of Provenance was for the European market, other bottlings were done for the USA and Asia.
Glen Garioch is a distillery with a comparatively low profile, and quality has varied over its lifetime under a succession of different owners - but real aficionados will tell you that the older expressions are some of the best malts in Scotland. This is a whisky with fruit and floral notes, but also, crucially, some restrained peat.
Extraordinarily rare malt, even by Kinclaith's standards: just 64 (!) bottles were yielded when G&M bottled it in 1996 from what must have been, judging by the colour, an exceptional refill sherry hogshead. Kinclaith was founded in 1957 and closed in 1975. This incredibly scarce Lowlander has never been officially bottled as most of its output went into parent company Schenley International's Long John blend.
A special and very rare bottling of The Glenlivet, bottled under the auspices of being for the company chairman. Distilled in 1963, bottled 21 years late and presented in wooden box with a script label.
