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 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 ridiculously rare item - this Single Malt Scotch Whisky From Glenury Distillery (as the label proclaims) is one of just thirty-seven bottles from a refill hogshead bottled for Douglas Laing's Old Malt Cask range.
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)
A rare old Longmorn 1969, bottled in October 1993 by Gordon & Macphail for their 'Cask' series of full-strength malts. Aged in a pair of casks, numbers 3721 and 5297, which were distilled on 30th June and 6th November respectively.
