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 quite legendary sherried Longrow from the batch of stunning casks secured by the far-sighted Italian firm Samaroli long before cask-strength bottlings were de rigeur. This was one of the earliest Longrows, distilled just a year after production started at Springbank in 1973.
One of the stupendous cask strength Longrows bottled in the 1980s by legendary Italian bottler Samaroli. These extraordinary whiskies from Longrow's first vintage sealed the reputation of Springbank's peated malt.
Bottled over a decade ago, this is a very special Signatory edition of Ben Wyvis, the single malt made at Whyte & Mackay's Invergordon distillery for a brief period between 1965 and 1976. Almost all Ben Wyvis went straight for blending so this is rare indeed. Just 84 sets were released, each with a miniature of the spirit included in the box.
An single cask independent release of Laphroaig bottled in 1994 for Signatory. It was distilled in 1967, the same year that the distillery was sold to Long John International, and bottled at cask strength.
A rare and sought after bottling, despite 1966 being one of the more represented years in Balvenie's Vintage Cask range. A well aged and rich dram bottled from cask 6434 after about 32 years of maturation.
A very special Bowmore from a hogshead filled on August 9th 1980, the day that Queen Elizabeth II visited the distillery. Cask #5774 was acquired by Jim Howat, then Chairman of Morrison Bowmore and was left in his will to the JTH Charitable Trust he created with his wife Christine. Designed and bottled in 2011 by Morrison Bowmore as a special limited edition for the charitable trust yielding 156 bottles at a natural strength of 46.7%.
